Thanks to Brittney who took these family pictures!!!
On this Thanksgiving day I am overwhelmed with things that I have to be thankful for. Sometimes I feel like I don't really deserve all the good things I have in my life! First of all, my beautiful daughter Eden. I can't think of you and not get teary eyed because I just love you SO much. You have changed my life. You truly are my best friend and I enjoy every single moment I have with you.
My new baby Ella. I did not think I could love another baby as much as I love Eden, but you proved me wrong! I love you so much. You are so sweet and we can already tell that you're going to have the sweetest personality! These last couple of weeks have been some of the best times. I am SO grateful you came to our family!
My husband. Christian...what can I say. You saved my life. SInce the moment I saw you I knew there was something special about you. You have given me the best gift any girl could ask for. Being able to spend eternity with my best friend and our beautiful children. You have loved me more than I could ever ask for. Thank you for being the man you are, and making me the woman I am! I love you so much!
My family. I don't know what I'd do without you guys. I ALWAYS have the best times when we're all together! I couldn't have chosen better people to spend eternity with! Especially you mom. I can't even express to you what an amazing mother you are. You are so selfless and giving. I don't know how I would have survived these last couple of weeks without you. You are so great with my girls and I just can't tell you how much it means to me that you've been here. I love you so much.

My other family!! You guys are awesome. I have always felt so welcome and accepted and just part of your family from the very beginning. You guys are so fun, and so loving and I am SO thankful that I married a man with such an amazing family! Mom and dad, you guys are such a great example of love. Thank you SO much for loving me and for loving my daughters. Brittney, I never thought I'd get a best friend out the deal when I married Christian, but seriously, you mean a lot to me!!
Our Missionary. Elder Rodee your letters mean so much to our family! Christian cries almost every time we read them because you just have the most amazing spirit. You are truly an extraordinary missionary and are doing an amazing work! We love you so much!
My sister...I don't even know how to start. I've never known anyone as special as you are. You mean more to me than I could ever say in a blog or letter or anything. You have always been there for me, even though I know it must have been so hard. You are an amazing person and it means so much to me that you are so great with my girls. They LOVE you so much. Thank you Stef for being you and loving me. I love you so much.
To all our friends and family, we are so lucky to have so many amazing people in our lives. We love each and every one of you! We hope you all have a very special holiday! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
