Capturing life's most precious moments

Full of Thanks

I figure that now is one of the best times of year to express the many things I am grateful for. I know that i won't be able to list everything, but here are a few of my greatest blessings (in no particular order)...
My wonderful Husband- He works SO hard going to school full-time and working all the overtime he can get so that I can stay home with Jaxon. He also puts up with a lot from me, expecially when I'm pregnant.
My Beautiful Son-He brings so much joy into my life, and I couldn't imagine the world without his beautiful smile. I love his smell, his dimples, his thick blonde hair, his sweet little voice, how he gets so excited about everything, the love he has for life and everyone/everything in it, and most of all that he is part of my Forever Family.
My Savior- This goes without saying, but I owe everything I have, everything I am, and everything I'm going to be to my Savior. Life would be pretty sad and lonely at times if i didn't know he was always there.
saltine crackers-Just about the only thing I can eat some days, these crackers are keeping me from completely wasting away.
my house- It may not be very big, and like a hundred years old, but the heater works and keeps my family warm. I enjoy the comforts of electric everything. I can have warm water on demand. And its a place to raise my family and teach them the gospel.
My Huge family-Between our parents, Kyle's 5 brothers and sister, my 10 brothers and sisters, 17 neices and nephews, all our cousins and aunts and uncles, there is always someone there when you need them.
My Awesome friends-I think I have the coolest friends in the world! Ones who have helped us fix our car when they had no idea that money was very tight. Ones who have helped us side our home, and make it look so much better. Ones who we can call for any favor, and know that they will help us if they can.
My freedom- I wouldn't be able to enjoy many of the things I do if it weren't for where I was lucky enough to be born. I'm grateful for the freedom that I never personally had to fight for, but that so many lost their lives over
I know there are so many more things I could list, but one of my biggest blessings wants some milk, so I think I've done a pretty good job of summing it up. I'm just thankful for this time of year. For the feeling in the air that comes with the season. Most of all, I'm thankful to be alive.
