Isn't that lovely?!?! That the jelly was so kind to wait till my last day of school to run out?! Well I was so excited I took a picture :)

Tonight after a really great institute I was driving home and drove right by my street so I could go downtown. I was making all my fellow drivians mad because I was driving extremely slow. Why you ask?
The Christmas lights downtown are BREATH TAKING. I couldn't take it all in. In my car Christmas music was playing. There was beauty surrounding me and I started to cry. I don't think I have every cried because I thought something was beautiful.
This experience made me so excited for the Christmas Spirit this year. I'm making a list of things I want to do. I hope I will be able to fulfill them all because it would just happen to make my month amazing. Latter I will fill you in.
For now take in this picture. It is not nearly as wonderful as what I saw tonight. Lights EVERYWHERE just connected continually through out the whole down town park. I love Christmas.

Thankful? Yes I am.

I have so much to be thankful for, for starters with these pictures and the things in them...

I am Thankful for this little man Drake. He is so precious and I love him. I feel that we bonded a lot this last trip to Colorado. We like to tease each other. I'll say, "You're mean!" He screams in his raspy yelling voice, "I'm not mean!" I say, "Do you like me?" He says, "NO!" I say, "Then you're mean!" "Do you love me?" Finally he says, "Yes, I luh you" "I love you too Dake Dake" Then we part to what we were doing before.

I am thankful for these adorable napkin holders Amber made. Each hand is from each one of the kids. Isn't that the cutest idea ever?! I loved looking at them, and then just ripping them off at dinner.
I've never had such a beautiful table to each at and I'm being serious. I felt like a RICH family. hahah I was so thankful to sit in the middle chair on the left side.
I am so thankful I was able to make these deviled eggs. They weren't the best things I have ever made but everyone ate them. That is what I am thankful for. Everyone eating them. Made me feel good inside.I am thankful for this woman. Stephanie.\ She makes me laugh a lot everytime I come to visit Colorado. She is my sister in-law's sister. She makes the visits even more enjoyable. (Even though the visits are wonderful with out her :) she makes them even more enjoyable)Stephanie also made them very full of taste SWEET POTATOES!!! This was the first time we have had sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving and the first time anyone had ever made them. (well Stephanie made them) They were very sweet but they still tasted pretty darn good. I was thankful to try first time homemade full of marshmellows and sugar sweet potatoes.

Mom and Drake decided to watch Batman during all of this and took a little snooze. I am so Thankful for my mommy. She is a wonderful, talented, spiritually intuned woman. She takes care of the grandkids with great care, disapline, and love.

Without pictures and I won't be able to cover all but I am Thanksful for:

-Being able to spend time in Colordao with my brother Cortney's family, my mom, dad, and Amber's side of the family.

-My entire family. They all treat me as if I was one of there own.

-My roommate Erin. She makes my days more enjoyable and full of laughter. She is the hardest working student I have ever met, and I'm not kidding. Yet somehow she is still full of life, surprises, and just plain fun! I'm so lucky I found her and she accepted me as a roommate

-My townhouse. It is beautiful. Warm. Cozy. Very well decorated(by my roommate of course).

- My car. Figzel Michaelangelo. He runs so great and I am sooo thankful my parents passed him onto me. Such good gas mileage.

- My job. A girl my age does not deserve such a great paying job and barely anytime at all to do. I thankful everyday that I get to work for WalkerMnM.

-My friends. They bring smiles to my face everytime I think of them and are always there for me when I call upon them. Always giving me advise and thinking of my best interest.

- Samantha Stevenson. She puts up with all of my crap, mood swings, sillyness, teasing her, hardships, random crazy moods I have, being with me all the time, and she still loves me. She has always been by my side. If I didn't have her as my best friend I honestly don't know what I would do with myself. She is always there. No matter what. MOH.

-Boy Meets World. It sounds silly to you but I am seriously extremely thankful for Boy Meets World. I can always count on it to bring a smile, giggle, laughter out loud, and a heart felt message EVERY episode.

-Council Bluff/Omaha friends. They keep my days moving and help me believe that I can do this. They keep me thinking this is where I am suppose to be.

-My Parents. They are the best parents I could have ever asked for. They hardly ask anything from me, they trust me, they love me, they give me everything I could ever ask for, they keep me in line. They put everyone before themselves. I love them.

-My little Community College. I love going to school and learning! I love my Sign Language classes and my teachers. I am so excited for these next 2 years in my Sign Language Interpreting Program. I can already tell I will make a lot of new friends.

-Omaha. It is wonderful here.

-There of course are SO many other things to be Thankful for but those are just a small few that I could think of at the moment.

-Lastly my Heavenly Father. He is who I have to thank most. I have him to thank for all of the things in the world. For giving me everything I have, everything I have dreamed of, and everything that will happen in the future. He gave me and you his only begotten son, who took upon all of our sins and transggressions that we might be clean. We can repent of all of our sins. I find that so wonderful and I am so thankful that he gave me this life to live. I want to live it to the fullest. I want to reach my spiritual potential and I can do it with his guidance. I am so thankful for the plan of salvation, for the Book of Mormon and the Bible, for Joseph Smith, for our living day prophet Thomas S Monson who guides us through this Latter Day. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us and I know that his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church. I am so thankful to be a part of it.

-I love you all. I am excited for this up coming CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!! I can already feel the cheer it is bringing me.
