Happy belated thanksgiving!
i know i'm a few days late, seems to be my norm lately. i'm just so busy! who knew that raising five kids could be so time consuming? anyway, we made it through another thanksgiving. we are blessed to have both of our families in town so we get to see them all. it's a long and tiring day but it's a good one! this year was really relaxed and wonderful. we usually eat our main meal with my in laws earlier in the day. this year we also had a cake for the little guy. the food was plentiful and fantastic. my mother and father in law are excellent cooks. we ate (way too much) and then all settled down to watch home videos and UP. i love seeing theMr as a little boy... reminds me so much of another little boy i know. there's nothing like seeing the man you adore as a sweet child. ornery, but sweet. just like his sons :) we then headed over to my parents for dessert. it was a little smaller this year since we lost both of our grandmothers this year. sad but still good. it's a good reminder to appreciate every moment. none of us knew last year that it would be the last with them both. we also didn't know we'd have a new little addition. how life can change in the blink of an eye. hope your holiday was filled with food, family and love. i'll post pics soon!
