This was a good month to focus on being thankful.  We put up our thankful tree and it was filled even just by the first day.

One night when we were getting the kids down, I was laying down on the floor before scriptures and Cason made me this comfy set up and directed me how to lay.

For some of our ward temple trips, a few couples offer to watch kids on a Saturday morning at the stake center next to the temple so more couples can attend.  Connor and I volunteered this month and luckily some good friends of ours also volunteered.  There were a ton of kids but supposedly we don’t have to babysit again for the next 4 years!

The day before Thanksgiving, Connor was off work and the kids did not have school so we had a fun day.  We went to Black Bear Diner for breakfast since it just opened near us.
