What about Thanksgiving???

OK, I do have my tree up, but it's my Thanksgiving tree- it's decorated with fall leaves!
On Thanksgiving day we will add additonal leaves to the tree
with our blessings written on each leaf!

Sometimes it seems it goes from Halloween to Christmas- I feel sorry for Thanksgiving and wanted to give it the respect it deserves. Thanksgiving comes at a perfect time; near the end of the year when we can sit back and contemplate on the events of the year and all we've been blessed with; and right before Christmas when we celebrate the birth of the One we are most thankful for.
I am most thankful for The Savior, The Plan of Salvation, and The Family.
Isn't it interesting that in a world full of millions of people, we can all still feel special and loved because of our families. How wise our Heavenly Father is for creating the family unit. Families are central to the Plan of Salvation, and The Savior did what he did so that we could be with our families forever and ultimately live with our Heavenly Family forever. So as most of you will agree- it all comes down to family. Our Heavenly Father, His Son, our spouses, our children, our grandchildren, our fathers, our mothers, our brothers & sisters.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

"I've been wanting to go camping....

"I've been wanting to go camping......and have a big bonfire......and roast some hot dogs!!!
So we traveled many steps to our back yard....
chopped up the wood........
stoked up a fire.......
and roasted those hot dogs......
Just the two of us!!!

New Pictures from Elder Hinckley - October 2009

A recent baptism!
The 1 year mark!
The traditional "burning of the white shirts to mark 1 year!"
Is this allowed in the mission rule book?

Align CenterSpencer with Mosiah doing a service project. Isn't he adorable!!!!

He stepped on a nail during the service project! Yes, he had a tetanus shot before he left!
