Wednesday afternoon, while rolling out the crust for my apple pie we got the news . . .
. . . the offer we made on a house has been accepted!
Now, we're in another waiting game while it goes through bank approval. (The home is a short sale, just like everything else in Vegas).
But. We've made it this far in the process, which is a milestone in and of itself. The house is great. Great schools, ward, neighborhood, and an amazing 7 minute commute to work for Scott.
Conner's birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year. He is 11 years old. 11! Wow. I plan to do a post about this boy later, but for now here's a picture of him with his birthday loot. He was a pretty happy boy.
The boys played at the Turkey Bowl in the morning.
I was so sad that I missed the game! After spending the morning making a double batch of crescent rolls I pulled into the parking lot just as everyone was getting into their vehicles to go. :( But at least I got a photo. Conner was stoked - he got 3 touchdowns and 1 sack.
We all wrote down what we are thankful for.
The turkey was beautiful. And delicious.
The kids played with Conner's new toys, we took a nap, and later joined friends for pie.
It was a good day.
Even though we are in an interesting & transitional stage right now and certain aspects of our family life are upside down . . . we have much to be thankful for.
. . . family, good health, a safe & warm home, the gospel, a job that provides for us, friends . . . .
and Payton would add - video games, egg nog, and apple cider.
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
