Thanksgiving.........a little slow I know

A little behind.....

Never before have I ever wanted to cook a turkey by myself since this Thanksgiving. I don't know maybe it's the motherly instincts kicking in, who knows but we sure took on the task and made our very first 21LB Bird. I was a nerd and totally forgot to take a picture of our masterpiece. It was awesome though. Clarke gutted it and I stuffed it with butter. Great team work. On the sunday before thanksgiving we had my dad, brother bryce, Bro Tyler, sister in law Debbie, and their two kids, Jett and Kati over for a great feast. It was so nice. IT was like old times when mom would have all the good stuff waiting for us to eat. We had rolls, vegs tray, cheese and crackers, veggie casserole, cranberry, yams, stuffing, homemade gravy(first time ever making gravy as well, and it turned out pretty darn good if you ask me)and of course Turkey. There was alot of food. We had some friends over the next night. Leslie and Kimball and their little boy Caleb, Tyrell and Whitney, Paul and Kristy, Abby and Dustin and their little boy Jona, and Brian and LaShelle. It was a house full of peps. IT was interesting situating everyone in our kitchen with patio chairs and stools. It was pretty fun though.
On Thanksgiving day we went to my mom's house for the first time since we have been married up in Idaho Falls. It was a nice drive there. Clarke and I listened to Christmas music (which, I wont lie, we had been listeniing to christmas music for a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving) and looked at all the adds in the paper. (well I looked at them and kinda showed Clarke every once and a while, while he drove). We had a really nice time with my family. My mom hadn't seen me since July, so she didn't know how big I really was. It was fun to be there.
I am so thankful for Clarke and my family. I don't know what I would do without them. I don't know what I would do with Clarkeee, I love him so much and everyday I feel so blessed to have found him and married him. We are truely best friends. I always want to be with him, maybe it's because I only see him early in the morning for like 5 mins and at night somedays. We both have been so busy. Clarke is almost all done with his finals....YAY! Then he has one more semister to go, that is until Graduate school. But he will have his Bachlors degree. I'm so proud of him he is such a hard worker, I couldn't ask for a better husband and friend, and Almost Father of my baby......wow 20 more days.....what am I going to do with myself! I am way excited for sure. I can't wait to be a mommy....But I am a little nervous, which is to be expected. Any day now I could call you and give you some sweet news...but for now you just get some boring story about our lives. Enjoy! Love you all
