As I sit here this Thanksgiving morning thinking about all I am thankful for I feel so overwhelmed by all the blessings in my life.  Most of which I take for granted on a daily basis.  I'm reminded that I need to be more grateful.  
I love my family.  Especially my boys.  Jaxon is my best buddy.  He is such a sweetheart and such a smartie.  He is also very sensitive and a mama's boy.  Which I love.  He brings a smile to my face everyday.  He loves hot dogs and being outside.  He loves his Grandma Sue Sue and constantly asks to go to her house.  He loves to eat everything with a fork.  His favorite toy is mommy's kindle.  All I have to do is turn it on and he takes care of the rest :)  He keeps me going when the days are hard.  I love him so much.
I am grateful for my sweet baby Camren.  Although it has been harder than I thought it would be having them so close in age I wouldn't change it.  He is my cuddler.  He loves to be held and rocked.  Camren is very much like his mama, very sensitive.  He doesn't like a lot of commotion or noise.  He cries when I sneeze too loud :)  He loves his binki and only likes the car if he is asleep.  He keeps me grounded.  Keeps me sane on cold days when we can't go outside and we get to snuggle all day on the couch.  He is my bed buddy at night when Jaxon is asleep and Daddy is still at work.  He keeps me company and makes me so happy.
I am grateful for my loving husband.  Adam is the most patient and kind person I know.  He has blessed my life in more ways than I can count.  He works hard for his family and is the best daddy.  Jaxon loves waiting up for Daddy to get home from work.  He gets so excited and runs to the door to greet him.  And Camren gives Daddy the best smiles.
My other family.  I love my Mom, Dad, and sisters so much.  I am lucky to have a good relationship with my parents.  Especially my mom.  She knows all my deepest secrets and loves me anyways :)  She is always willing to help her girls in anyway that she can without a complaint.  She is my example.  My Dad has always shown me how to be a hard worker.  He is so generous and loves and spoils all of us.  He is understanding and strong.  I am grateful that I was raised my goodly parents and born into the covenant.
My sisters.  Sometimes there are no words to express just how much I love them.  We have our differences and lets be honest most of the time we all just complain about each other but what 5 sisters wouldn't :)  I love how close we all are and how we can lean on each other in times of need.  When someone is sick or kids are causing trouble or we just need a night out.  There is always a sister to lean on.  I love my sisters.
The gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ.  I wouldn't be where I am today without my Savior and the atonement.  I am especially grateful for the knowledge of the gospel and for knowing that families are forever.  That I will be with my family for eternity is such a blessing.
And I am grateful for so many other blessings that I could obviously ramble on about.  I am so blessed.
Happy Thanksgiving!
