Thanksgiving this year was spent with my lovely family and Stephen near Rockford, IL. It was a great day filled with food, stories, laughter, games, walks and thankfulness. Besides Jesus, I will always be most thankful for the people in my life.

Below is a picture of Stephen and most of my family who were at our Thanksgiving lunch.

Stephen and I stole Santa’s sleigh.

My cousins, Stephen and I all went to a park near their home to walk off some of the Thanksgiving meal.

The day after Thanksgiving I went to one of my best friend’s home in Chicago and had a second Thanksgiving meal!

This is Hillary (my best friend, the one on the right), her sister Charity and then me in the middle. We had a great afternoon together!
