We were able to visit with both sides of the family this Thanksgiving. We dropped by Emily's home to see the Hess side. Grandma Nancy and Randall came from Garden City for the holiday. Emily made just about everything for the meal! She is such an amazing cook!
We had the Nichols side of the family meet at our house later Thanksgiving day for dinner. Everyone prepared a couple items so my preparation wasn't very intensive. I made stuffing, and pies (pecan, apple crisp, pumpkin and whipped cream of course!) We also had turkey and gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and apples, mixed vegetables, a relish tray, and a chocolate cream pie.
Betty had to leave right after dinner to fly to Florida. Katie was found the night before unconscious with a sugar level of 14! Betty has been in Florida ever since taking care of Katie. Thankfully, Katie has since woken up, however she has a severe brain injury and is struggling to recover. We are praying for her daily. She has a long road ahead of her; Betty is not planning on coming back to Utah anytime soon.
How grateful we are for our many blessings, especially our family. Heavenly Father has blessed us with a wonderful and supportive family. I'm so thankful that we remain close and that our children are able to enjoy holidays with their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. We love them all so and pray for their health and well being.
