so thankful

So many things.  Little things, big things, sweet things, pretty things, cute things....I am thankful for my wonderful family.  For the smiles they give me, and the ones they share.  For the happiness my girls bring me with a drawing, or a kiss, or just being themselves.  For my awesome husband, who always makes me laugh, and makes me realize that I have it so good. For parents who made me the person that I am today. My sisters, cousins, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents remind me of where I come from, and it is such a wonderful place - full of love and good memories, and good moments yet to come. These are the things that I give thanks to on this Thanksgiving day.

The Thanksgiving group this year.  We have tried to do a different group photo every year, and I think that this is my most favorite.  We also have a somewhat new tradition at dinnertime - "I am most thankful for...".  This year, we DREW what we were most thankful for.  The artists that we have in this family.  So cool.  It made for a lot of laughs.  I love traditions.

A silly one. This is so US.

I love this one too.  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.  I am EXHAUSTED....and surprisingly, a little bit hungry.  A little turkey sandwich, comfy pj's, and bed are in my near future.

You are so lucky to have all of those people in your lives, especially for Emily and Paige. You have such a nice family. So funny, after I posted last night, I had a mini Thanksgiving plate, and went to bed. It was so good! Now, the Christmas tree :)

Makes me wish I was there with you. You forgot to mention your awesome sister-in-law. Just kidding. I am so thankful for all of you guys. I miss you!
