So Much to be Thankful For!

We truly have so much to be thankful for!!!! So Thanksgiving is a very special holiday for us because we get to spend time with family and truly reflect on how blessed our lives really are. Now don't get me wrong...we appreciate all that we have all year around but sometimes we get caught up in day to day life and sometimes we feel we haven't really stopped to thank God enough for all that we have. I could of course go on and on about what we are thankful for but of course at the top of our list is our three precious children and the fact that despite their rough beginning, God has given them their health. I often don't feel like I can be thankful enough for that! At this point, it is hard to imagine what life really was like for Bryan and I before our three little miracles came into our lives. What we do know though is that they are the best things that have happened to us since we found each other and for that we are forever THANKFUL!

As far as Thanksgiving Day was wonderful!!! We spent the day at my mom and dad's house and Bryan's mom also joined us. I always love spending time with the whole family together and it is great to see the triplets play and interact with their grandparents. We all chipped in for a delicious dinner that turned out great! Harry, Olivia and Madeline got to eat their first real Thanksgiving Dinner too...they loved it! Especially the pumpkin pie for dessert;) They all of course have mommy and daddy's sweet tooth! Here are a couple of pictures from the day:
The family on Thanksgiving Day

Madeline riding mommy's rocking horse....this thing got a serious work out by me when I was little and Madeline loved it just as much...can we say future equestrian?!?!? ;-D

I think the turkey did Olivia in!

Harry LOVES his Grampy:-)

They're ready to eat!

Playing with Daisy...they LOVE Daisy and she is so good and patient with them.

We took the kiddos to Holland Park a couple of weekends ago since it was unusually warm out. Here is Madeline trying out daddy's hat...she is of course a Colt's fan;-D

Olivia playing on her bouncy zebra

Harry...such a cutie!

Look! We are brushing our teeth!

Here they all are playing is so much fun to watch them!

Madeline can now point to your nose when you ask her where it is...she was showing Daddy where his nose was:-)

So much fun to play on the couch!

Madeline watching Daddy put up the christmas lights...she was fascinated!

We got Christmas pictures taken of the family by Amanda last weekend so as soon as I get those I will be sure to share! Happy Christmas shopping until then:-D
