Thoughts on Thanksgiving

For some reason this post is being very difficult for me to write.  I’m not sure if it is because Thanksgiving just feels different this year or if it is because I’m overwhelmed by all that we have been blessed with.

Last week, my sister-in-law had a PET scan.  She learned that her treatment, as brutal as it has been, is working.  There was no new growth and the doctors are more hopeful because of the results.  This is the best news we could have received and has made a huge impact on our gratitude and faith.

I am truly grateful for my sweet little family.  I love being married to my best friend and partner.  I am grateful that we can play together and work on projects together.  I am blessed to be married to a man that is a playful dad.  A dad that loves making his little girls giggle.  My girls are the light of my life.

My life is filled with fun and I look forward to the end of my work day when I get to spend time with my girls and the love of my life.

I have wonderful parents and in-laws.  My siblings and Scott’s are the greatest.  I always know that they will be there whenever I am in need.

So much to be thankful for.

I asked my girls what Thanksgiving means to them.  Rather than writing their answers, I’ve decided to let you watch them.  (My girls don’t usually wear tank tops and short sleeved shirts in the middle of winter but Scott pulled out the old Dance Dance Revolution on the original PlayStation.  Both girls had been dancing their hearts out before I filmed these).

This Thanksgiving we are going to be dining at Prairie Schooner in Ogden.  I have incredible mixed feelings about it.  I love cooking Thanksgiving dinner but Scott doesn’t think it is worth all of the work.  I’m already feeling sad that I’m not baking a pie, mashing up potatoes, basting a turkey and sweetening yams.  Sure, the girls will have a blast eating in a covered wagon (don’t worry, it is inside).  Plus I won’t have to hear complaints about my cooking.  But I still feel pretty sad.  I still bought a turkey so that I can have the left overs.
