So Thankful!

Many times during the holiday seasons we'll get so stressed and caught up in making everything just right that we miss the real reason of it all. I know, I've been guilty of this very thing. But, today I really wanted to focus on being thankful. God has blessed me incredibly!

This is a list of just a few things I'm thankful for. It'd be impossible to list them all. ;)
*Jesus Christ...for saving my life!
*My amazing family, for always being there and supporting me.
*The incredibly encouraging friends God's given me. I love you!
*For my church family. You are awesome!
*That I'm making good grades in school and at the college. I'd never be able to do it without the Lord keeping me motivated and being with me through every Medical Terminology test. ;) And my mom being there, praying for me, and teaching me every step of the way.
*Music. Encouraging, uplifting, Christian music that I can learn things from.
*I'm thankful for YOU! Yes, you read right my dear bloggers. You have brightened many a day.
*That I haven't wrecked a vehicle. Thank you, Lord!
*For a great day! Happy Thanksgiving!
We got to host Thanksgiving this year at our house! Even though it took a lot of preparation, it was a lot of fun! Here's pictures of my wonderful family and friends eating Thanksgiving dinner:

This would include my grandparents, great grandma, 2 sets of uncles and aunts, a family friend, and my brother and me. (I'm in the brown...back right corner.)

Here's the second table which includes my parents, brother, sister, and 2 cousins.

All in all we had about 16 people over. :) My baby cousins put on a show for us, singing and dancing. They were SO cute!

We're getting ready to go pick out our Christmas tree! (I soo can't believe Christmas is almost here...again! lol) It's something we do every Thanksgiving...put up our Christmas tree. I can't wait! Be ready for a post on our tree soon. :)

I hope everyone had a fantastic day! Happy Thanksgiving!

P.S. Don't forget! The Movie Quotes Contest answers and winner will be up Sunday! So if you haven't entered your answers, hurry fast! ;)

  2. It's so weird seeing everyone celebrate thanksgiving! I live in Canada, so ours was in October. :)

    It sounds like a lot of fun, though. :) I love it when little kids put on shows for people! It's so cute. :)
