Thanksgiving Cox Style

Well, happy late Thanksgiving to everyone that I did not get a chance to say it to. The whole Cox family gathered at Uncle Rich and Aunt Lyn's house this year. I believe there were close to 60 people there. I knew that Bryce had a big family, but 60 people?! And that doesn't even include everyone that lives out of state, as well as, some of the cousins and their families who live near us who were not able to come. So, the food was great and the company was even better! I took some random pics so I unfortunately did not get a picture of everyone who was there. It was really nice to see TJ, Mischa, and Emery. I can't believe that Emery is almost a year old already! Ms. McKenzie (Michael and Rachael's daughter) lost her very first tooth yesterday! So, I hope the tooth fairy was good to her! In one of the pictures you will see Hallie pulling Cooper around in wagon. It was the funniest thing to me because Cooper weighs so much more than Hallie. I asked her if he was heavy and she said no. It was really cute! And of course, this was Sara's first Thanksgiving. And she enjoyed sleeping and rolling around on the floor. So, as the holidays have begun I have given a lot of thought as to what I am thankful for and the list is long of course. But, I am truly thankful for Bryce and the wonderful husband and father that he is. I am thankful for my children and that they are healthy and happy. I am thankful to have the gospel in my life. I am very thankful for my family, especially my mom and my grandmother. I am also thankful for Bryce's family for the support and love they have shown me. There are numerous other things that I am thankful for, but too many to list. I hope that each of us takes a moment every day to think about all the things in our lives that we have to be thankful for. I also hope that we all remember as Christmas nears, what we are really celebrating. This is the best time for us as Christians to show what the true meaning of Christmas is.

Oh I wish we could have been there! Looks like everyone had a great time. We had a (somewhat) quiet Thanksgiving at Todd's parents and had a really nice time too. I can't wait until Christmas to see everyone!

Thanks so much for sharing your Thanksgiving pictures. You should be doing the Cox Family News. I loved your version of the day and I'm glad you are part of our family. (I'm glad we haven't scared you off yet also) You'll have to show me how to add pictures to my blog.
