(this is the closest i got to a family picture on thanksgiving.)
we gave thanks last week for our beautiful life.
daddy had the long weekend, so we played hard - and didn't internet much at all.
that's why all of this is late in coming.
we enjoyed the afternoon with family at my sister-in-law's parents' house. it was hard to believe that it was only three years ago that we were there for thanksgiving 2009 - and that i was just a big, pregnant lady back then!
(the cousins having a shirtless meal)
(poppy's first real thanksgiving - she perfected it!
her recipe: put roll on fork, stir roll in all the foods, enjoy.)
(had a hard time getting a smile out of ellie, she was too busy having fun.)
i'm thankful for the big stuff:
God and Jesus Christ
a warm, comfortable home
family near and far
faith, hope & charity
the beauty of the earth
one fat dog
i'm also thankful for the little stuff:
little people toys
glitter nail polish
shopping carts for two kids
and that doesn't even put a dent in it.
we have a great life!
stay tuned. i've got a lot more to say about our weekend and our little ONE-YEAR-OLD.
can you believe it?
(they were dressed cute but wouldn't allow me a good picture. i need a professional.)
