Thanksgiving Times Two

We had another fun Thanksgiving weekend all together. This is Sienna’s first Thanksgiving. Living close to family around holidays is such a perk. We spent Thanksgiving day with Josh’s family and Black Friday with my family. We had two delicious Thanksgiving dinner and could probably not eat for a week. This is actually the first Thanksgiving we have had with the Deckers since Josh and I have been together. Josh and I rotate Christmas day and Thanksgiving day with each of our families and for various reasons we haven’t spent the day with them. Sienna received lots of love and cuddles from her grandpas and grandmas and aunts and uncles. We watched plenty of football, which is Sienna’s favorite thing to watch. It is amazing how fascinated she is with football games. Josh and I have been battling colds and sinus infections but hopefully we will be all healthy again before December comes. We are so grateful for our life and blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Sweet Life

I really love writing on our blog because I can go through my past pictures and remember all the sweet moments in life. I am an old soul at heart when it comes music, I think partially because I am the oldest child in my family and I just listened to my parent’s music growing up. I love the song, “Sweet Life” by Paul Davis released in 1977. Here are the lyrics, don’t mind the repetition.

“She’s got your eyes
She’s got my nose
Oh, I get high just watching her grow
I always dreamed we’d live in a castle, oh but
We’re in the same old shack
Sometimes we get into a hassle
But we always take each other back
Oh, you know
All our friends seem to be in a hurry
But we’ll just keep on taking our time

We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Sharing my love with you
Oh, we’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re makin our dreams come ture

You are my love
You are my life
Oh, and I get high just holding you tight
We always dreamed we’d make a lot of money, oh but
I don’t mind being poor
‘Cause when you make love to me, honey
I couldn’t ask for anymore
Oh, you know, all our friends seem to be in a hurry
But darlin’ we’ll just keep on taking our time
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat lifeSharing my love with you
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re making our dreams come true
Oh, oh
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Sharing my love with you
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re making our dreams come truehe’s got your eyes
She’s got my nose
Oh, I get high just watching her grow
I always dreamed we’d live in a castle, oh but
We’re in the same old shack
Sometimes we get into a hassle
But we always take each other back
Oh, you know
All our friends seem to be in a hurry
But we’ll just keep on taking our time

We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Sharing my love with you
Oh, we’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re makin our dreams come ture

You are my love
You are my life
Oh, and I get high just holding you tight
We always dreamed we’d make a lot of money, oh but
I don’t mind being poor
‘Cause when you make love to me, honey
I couldn’t ask for anymore
Oh, you know, all our friends seem to be in a hurry
But darlin’ we’ll just keep on taking our time
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Sharing my love with you
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re making our dreams come true
Oh, oh
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Sharing my love with you
We’re living such a sweet life, oh what a neat life
Making our dreams come true
We’re making our dreams come true.”

I think this is just the sweetest song and I have been thinking of my life when I heard it recently. Even though our life just became a lot more crazy, with being parents, it is still so sweet. I love my Joshy and my Sienna!

Date night with my Joshy at Red Lobster. We had a delicious dinner and I was the show because it was the endless shrimp deal and I ate 48 shrimp. I have a shrimp addiction and Josh thinks it is hilarious. 😂

We were watching a BYU football game together. I got a really bad sinus infection and my face swelled up pretty bad. Josh took care of me and our baby girl. He is amazing!

I just read this scripture in the Book of Mormon that I think goes along with what I have been sharing.

“And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.” Mosiah 2:41.

It is a work in progress to follow God every day, but when we try, we are happier and have a much sweeter life! ♥️
