Making Stockings with MOM
Last weekend was a lot of fun spending time with my mom. We were able to go to some stores together and get Christmas stuff, and then we made Christmas Stockings for my brother and brother in law. They are both on their missions right now, so we thought it would be a cute christmas present to make them both stockings and fill it with goodies.
If it wasn't for my cute mom in law, who helped me figure out how to work my sewing machine, my mom and I wouldn't of been able to sew them.
I got a sewing machine a couple years ago, and then lost the instructions, so I've been just storing it in our closet.
I'm so excited that we got it working! I can't wait to start sewing little projects!

All in All, My mom and I had a great time spending time together! And, I think the stockings turned out pretty cute too!

I can't believe how fast this year is going, and that Thanksgiving has come and gone. Steve and I had a fun Thanksgiving spending time with the Ford fam this year. (We switch off holidays with my fam and his) We were able to go to the family cabin and have a relaxing week/weekend playing games, reading, going for a couple of walks and of course eating LOTS of yummy food.

My very favorite thing about thanksgiving(besides the food) is that everyone sits down as a family and we all discuss what we are thankful for and for all the great blessings we have in our life.

Just a few things of what Steve and I are grateful for:

*The Gospel
*Our Eternal Marriage
*Our Families & Friends
*Our Home
*We are both Healthy
*Have a great Job & good education opportunities
*Working Vehicles
*Temples that are close

Steve and I are very blessed, and we feel very grateful to Heavenly Father, for everything that he has given us.

Once we came home from the cabin we were able to set up our Christmas tree, and decorations while we watched Charlie Brown. I LOVE Christmas shows!

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
