Thanksgiving 2013

Happy Thanksgiving friends! I hope you had a great time with family. 

We spent Thanksgiving at Conrad's Mom's house, like we do every year. My mom and my sisters come over too. I am seriously so lucky that my kids and I get to spend the holiday with both grandmas. I had every intention of taking pictures of the kids and grandmas but ... yea, didn't happen. Time got away from us. 

The kids all sat at a little kids table this year. How cute are they? They all actually sat there for the most part, it was amazing. Allyson and Austin only ate their roll, that's it. Didn't even touch anything else. Yay, for two picky eaters. The food was delicious, there was tons of it. Desserts. Lots of yummy treats.

Austin loved the chocolate pie! He sat their long after the girls finished up, just taking his time, and enjoying his pie.

It was a nice day surrounded by family and counting our blessings. The kids were crazy, they had fun. We enjoyed everyone's company. This is the first Thanksgiving that I didn't have to be feeding or worrying about feeding a baby. All the kids were able to feed themselves, it was just crazy to make their plates and mine and then sit down. I did get up 50 times to fill up punch, just more potatoes, or help pull someone's chair closer. But they are becoming so grown up and independent. 

This has been a tough year for me but I have just so much to be thankful for. 

I'm so thankful for my husband. He's amazing. 
I'm thankful for my kids. They keep me on my feet. and they are pretty amazing too. 
Thankful for our health. Conrad has his back problems but he's healthy.  We have 3 healthy children. 
I have great friends that are there for me through everything. 
I am truly blessed.
