Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving in the Glauser house has always been a big affair. Cheese balls and Crackers, shrimp Moose dip, the 20 pie buffet, the gorgeous spread on the table, games and movies all day. I love it! I'm going to miss having everyone together this year for Thanksgiving, but I can't wait until Christmas when you are all here. Love ya all! I just want all of you to know how much I love and appreciate all the relationships I have in my life. I love when you all comment on my pictures of what's going on in my life. It's really all about the people in our lives that makes us happy. I'm so grateful for my dad and mom who are sacrificing their lives and time to serve our country so that we may live free and in safety. I'm grateful for my family and friends and the love and support that they show me. I'm also so grateful for the gospel in my life. For the truth and happiness it gives me. I'm grateful for so many things in my life. I don't think I will ever know how much until it's all said and done. I love all of you and thank you for all you do for me and my family. Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a must see!

From My Pictures

My mom and I went to the movie Twilight last night and I loved it! It was such a good movie. I normally would not be into movies like this but it was a fun romance to see. Tell me what you thought of it if you've seen it.

These pictures don't do them justice

These are my mom's Christmas tree's she has up so far. The pictures don't do them justice though. In person they are the best tree's you have ever seen. This year my mom did a new tree the Americana tree in the front room representing my dad serving in the United States Army in Iraq. Take a look. What's your favorite?

Jaden is getting so big. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Yesterday Jaden and I had a fun day! We slept in till 8 o'clock and then decided to go garage selling. That was fun because Jaden got to pick out a few toys he wanted, which he will receive for Christmas and then I also found "National Treasure" on of my favorite movies that I lost, and I got it for only 2 dollars! Then we had a fun lunch together at Taco Bell and went to Madagascar 2! Jaden got a kid's pack that had popcorn, and Icee and a treat! We had a blast and he actually was good through the whole movie! I have so much fun with a 2 year old!

It's Christmas Decorating Time!

I'm all ready for Christmas! I had my mom come over and help me rearange my house for the holidays. She's so good at that and makes everything look so good. Here's how it all turned out! Tell me what you think.

One last goodbye!

From dad
From dad

Last night while on my way home from a long day at work I noticed I had a couple of messages on my cell phone. I picked up the messages and it was my dad. His message was simple in that he said he was getting ready to leave for Iraq in the early morning, and that he wanted to let me know that he loved me and wanted to say goodbye one last time before he had to drop his phone off at the post office before it closed at 7:30. I quickly looked at the time and it was 7:04, my dad has been in Texas the last couple of weeks training to go and this would be the last time I would be able to hear his voice for at least 400 days. All chocked up of the reality that my dad was going to war, I called him anyway to say my last goodbyes before it was too late.
I am so proud of my dad and the courage that he has. I know that he will come home safely because the spirit has whispered this to me. I will just miss him so much and I know for him, me being his favorite, he will miss me too. I love you dad. Thanks for all that you do and the great sacrifice that you and mom are making for our country and for me and my freedoms. Be safe and know that we are praying for you here at home.
This is the song that my dad chose to dance with me at my wedding. I like to think of it as our song. Love ya dad.
