In the spirit of this Thanksgiving holiday, Gerret and I have soooo much to be thankful for. Even though it's hard at times to think of all the good things, we really are so blessed. We are grateful to have each other, to have a home to live in, and to have parents who love us. We are grateful to be able to have a job right now. I am so thankful to be able to practice massage and help people. We are happy to live near the beach. We are blessed to have the gospel in our lives. What comfort this brings to me, especially right now when there are so many things that are challeging us and the circumstances that we are in. We love all our family members and friends and cherish the relationships we have with all of you. We love and wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

I was really excited to try to make dessert for Thanksgiving this year. Those of you who know me well, know that I am not really an accomplished chef at all, but I was able to make this yummy pumpkin cheesecake and this is how it turned out.
It has whipped cream topping with toasted almonds and caramel topping. Mmmmmm, can't wait to eat it. I though it turned out pretty dang good. I am so proud of myself!...and Gerret.

Twilight Mania!

On Thursday night at midnight I was in line with about three hundred other chicks waiting to see the first showing of twilight. It was insane and funny to see how into it they all were. Everyone was screaming and giggling. There were so many twelve year old girls with their dads as their chaperone whitch was cute. He really took one for the team by taking all these screaming overly excited girls to see the movie.
Okay so I am anxious to see what everyone thinks of the movie. There was sooo much hype for this film. I liked it but was disappointed because no movie can really ever measure up to the book and how you play everything out in your mind. All the small details there vocies the way you imagin them to look all that good stuff. I know they tried really hard to capture all the highlighted points of the storyline but it just doesn't compare. I knew there was a good chance that I would be disappointed but was hoping for more. I want to hear what you all thought of the movie. Do you feel the same way or was it the best movie that you have ever seen like I know several chicks feel.

This was the line wound all the was around the movie theater outside.

I know I know what your thinking how lame but my friend talked me into it so if I did it everyone else was forced to also.

So what are your thoughts how did you feel about it yay or nay?
