Turkey Day 2012

This year, I found myself being thankful for a lot of things…

Definitely, these guys!

They bring more joy to our lives than I ever could have imagined and I am so thankful to have them blessing us with their sweet presence every day! …

Very thankful for my husband! The one that works so hard to provide for our family so that I can do my dream job, and loves me and our kids unconditionally…

I’m so thankful for family! ….Especially grandparents…and great-grandparents, too….

I’m thankful for God's provision….especially food! The kids agreed! They dug right in as soon as we said Amen! Or maybe a little before…. ;)

Hannah set the table for everyone… and did such a great job!

The kids had their own table with felt pieces to play with! Hopefully it helped teach them how to set the table!

After we set up our house, we went over to Papa’s house for Thanksgiving lunch!

We were hosting Thanksgiving for my family and my husband’s mother’s side of the family!
We went on a little walk to get rid of the lunch turkey before everyone came, to make room for the dinner turkey!

Hannah asked to take a picture of my outfit… I thought I’d include it :) turned out pretty good. Some mad 5-year-old-photographer skills!

After everyone left, mommy went out on a secret shopping mission! I came back home around 11 and woke back up at 6:00 with this sweet girl. She was SO excited! This year was the start of a sweet “Black Friday Shopping” tradition with her and I for many years to come!
