Happy Thanksgiving! I am so excited for this weekend, Wes and I are headed to Cali to visit family. :) There are SO very many things I have to thank the Lord for this year....

*Salvation in Him *Husband *Wonderful Family *Our new home name a few. But, I wanted to thank the Lord for a small way he has provided for me. I just love the way He shows his love and care in every detail of our lives. Even minor things that just remind us that He knows us and our needs even before we ask Him! 

I have been wearing boots constantly this fall and into the winter. They are so much nicer than having cold feet all day! I noticed, that I didn't pay a dime for a single pair of boots I wear! Between a friend who wasn't going to use hers anymore, my dad bringing home a pair from work, and receiving a gift card at my job, I have adorable boots in perfect colors and styles! Such a small thing, but what a blessing. :)

I very well could have bought the shoes, but I love how the Lord just decided to bring them right to me! Maybe, a silly thought, but I'm thankful for a God who is interested in the small areas of our lives as well as the big, life changing events---I like those too{Wes.Marriage.Moving.Utah} ;)

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. ~James 1:17

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend!

The Winner and Some Reminiscing

A name has been drawn....{drum roll please} and the winner of the Christmas Card Giveaway is Joslynne Trygstad!! Congratulations Joslynne :) You will receive your cards in the mail soon!

Thank you to all of you who entered the giveaway! I so appreciate your support, I wish I could just draw everyone's name. ;)

 On a second note, before everything goes all out Christmas, I wanted to share some thanksgivingness that has been on my mind. These last couple weeks mark a year since I officially became a Teacher! The way it worked with my student teaching, I didn't finish my degree until November. It was so neat that the Lord worked it out for the school I student taught at needed a teacher right at that time.

I was so thankful! It was such a fun time to start, I wanted to share the first projects I did with my students for Thanksgiving.

My students loved these projects! I think they would be so fun to do at home with the kids to get ready for Thursday too! What an awesome year it was at Southside Christian School. :) I will definitely always remember and be thankful for those first few weeks teaching there!

My Thanksgiving!

I spent my THANKSGIVING in

with Wesley and his family :)

Thursday morning we helped make lots of food!

Then we took a walk, and Wes showed me around his neighborhood.

Four wheeling in Utah was so awesome! I LOVE it!!

On Friday, Wes showed me around some more.

We stopped at his high school and I got to see where he played FOOTBALL!

Saturday morning we went up the mountain to cut down a CHRISTMAS TREE!

We went around Salt Lake City on a date. Wes surprised me and took me to a DINOSAUR museum!!! We had a blast :)

I am so thankful I was able to take this trip!
I cannot wait to be home in North Carolina in 2 WEEKS!
