We had a very nice Thanksgiving. We went to my parents house yesterday for the "feast" - that's what the kids like to call it. Everything tasted so yummy! I love being pregnant at Thanksgiving because no one can question me about how much I am eating! HAHAHA!! The baby needs it, right? We stayed and played games. Afterward, we stopped by to see Ryan's mom. It was already late, but we stayed until midnight! YIKES!! It was fun chatting with her.
Since yesterday was Thanksgiving, I want to list a few things that I am thankful for. For starters, I am so thankful for my family. My husband is my best friend and I couldn't ask for a better companion. He takes such good care of me and the kids. He is very hard-working. I am glad that I get to spend the eternities with such a wonderful man! I love my children. They make life crazy...I mean, fun! They are each special in their own way. I am especially thankful for this little one growing inside me. I think I finally felt the baby move yesterday! What a blessing it is to be a mother and to be able to carry a life inside of you! I can't wait until the baby starts kicking. I love my parents, my siblings, and allllll my in-laws. They are all so important to me and my life wouldn't be complete with each and every one of them. I am thankful for friends. I have been blessed with many friends over the years. I am thankful for the ones that I have kept in touch with over the years and also for the new friendships that I have made. It's so nice to have friends around.
So, I guess it's on to Christmas. We started decorating today. Makes it nice that we have 2-3 days to decorate. The kids were a little bonkers...probably too excited about all the decorations. I am looking forward to Christmas. I haven't really been thinking too much about it. But, I am looking forward to it, nonetheless. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy the Christmas season with your family and loved ones!
