Happy Thanksgiving

Today, I have really taken the time to reflect on all that I have to be thankful for and I realize how lucky and fortunate I am for everything that I have. I have a wonderful family - husband, two babies, a sweet baby girl on the way, my family, my wonderful friends, my health, a great pregnancy, a job, a beautiful home, food to put on the table, time spent with loved ones, and the list could go on forever.

It was a wonderful day. We woke up to our babies this morning and were able to spend some cuddle time just the four of us. Then it was off to Grandma and Papa's for some yummy "lunch". My MIL definitely is a good cook and she had a nice spread out for us. It was nice to eat, enjoy time with the family, watch the kids play around and just be happy. Their smiles never leave their faces - it warms my heart. Unfortunately, our time with them ended mid-afternoon. They will be missed greatly, but we are thankful for every minute spent with them - every kiss, every hug, the smiles, the laughing, the stories, the pictures, absolutely everything.

After the kids were with their mom, we headed up to my families. What an amazing time we had. I love my family. Everyone is unique in their own way and each one of us has our own bit of 'crazy', but that is what makes us all so great. I love watching Eli interact with them. In fact, I am thankful that he likes my family and gets along with them. It is so cute to watch him and my sister together. My sister looks up to him and loves having an older brother...even if all he does is flip her shit. We had our second meal of goods for the day and boy was it good. I know one thing, my family is blessed with a bunch of great cooks!

The day was wonderful. Yummy food, great company, the best family, two sweet babies and an angel that made sure I knew she was there all day. So much to be thankful for!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!!
