we are thankful

 This Thanksgiving was a special one for us. We, not long ago, become an aunt and uncle. Spencer and Jamie were blessed with a small angel named Mia. Although she's been in the hospital for a tiny bit we have been able to see her, talk to her, and love her. Thank yous were abundant this past Thursday as we all thought how blessed we are to have Mia and to have a whole team of doctors and nurses that take care of her so thoughtfully.

We are also grateful for our families! We are so blessed to have families that are always helping, supporting, and thinking about us. Being far away from home is a hard thing, but we have come to understand how much our families mean to us. Being here in Logan makes seeing our family even more special.  Also, living here has given us a great opportunity to grow as a couple and to realize how much we mean to each other.
We are grateful for the church, and for Christ. What that means to us is something we can not express enough. We are blessed to be in a great ward with awesome members. We have learned so much!

All our friends, although we don't see them as often as we want, are also a very special part of our lives. We love them.

We are blessed to be surrounded by so many quality, caring friends and family.
