Yep, just now getting to my Thanksgiving post. But wouldn’t-ya-know-it, it’s because of all the things I’m thankful for that it’s taken me this long. Kids, family, a life full of love and God’s grace.
We spent Thanksgiving day at my in-laws house. My parents and brother joined us there. We did our traditional go around the table to say what we’re thankful for (took some time since there were about 20 of us). It’s always lovely to experience the level of gratitude in our family because we truly are blessed and have so much to be grateful for.
Squeaks chewed down this year. She was totally into the food and even got seconds of some things. She always has the best time at family gatherings. The amount of attention she gets is mind blowing. When we arrive she’s taken from my arms (very willingly) by one family member or another and I generally hear very little from her the rest of the day because she’s off playing. She sleeps very well after family events. Little dude wasn’t as thrilled to be passed around as Squeaks is. He went to about three people before he passed out in Aunt Patty’s arms and then spent the rest of our stay in his wrap on my chest asleep. He’ll enjoy it more next year.
All together a wonderful day!
