Thirty Days of Thanks - Day 9 - November 9

I've been thankful for my husband, my children, my parents and my siblings.

Today I'm thankful for my extended family. I'm thankful for my in-laws and my 24  nephews 17 nieces.

The above picture is missing my son who is on a mission in Taiwan, my parents who are on a mission in Canada, my nephew who was on at a priesthood retreat, and my brother and brother-in-law, who have passed away. A new baby has been born since this picture.

I love every one of my extended family. My nieces and nephews are some of the greatest kids I know and my sisters-in-law (I hate the way that's written, by the way) are smart women, great moms, good cooks and good friends. My brothers-in-law are funny, hard working, and great dads.

I'm thankful for all those great people and I'm glad they're in my life.
