- Alan, and all he does for our family, and for me :)
- My oldest son, Adam
- My youngest son, Matthew
- Having twins. It has been a blessing watching them interact, and not having to wait until a younger sibling became old enough to play. They had a built in playmate from the begininng. The twin relationship has also taught them how to share. They understand taking turns (one of their favorite words is, "turn?"), and both of them have a very giving heart. I can't even give Adam two M&M's for peeing in the potty anymore, because he always runs and gives one to Matthew! <3 each="each" give="give" i="i" li="li" of="of" one="one" ow="ow" them="them"> 3>
- My parents
- Alan's parents
- My brother & sister-in-law living in the area, with their newborn son (who will hopefully become a good playmate to our boys!)
- My younger brother. Even though he lives far away, I am thankful we still have a relationship, and are able to video chat/regular chat online.
- Our home
- Alan's job, that enables us to provide for our family
- The flexibility of my PRN job as a Nurse. It allows me to have a job and make some income, without leaving my boys very often (just once a week).
- Also thankful I have been able to work so many Sundays lately, so Alan is able to watch the boys. That way we don't overtax the Grandparents/can use them for date nights ;)
- Electricity....we take so many things for granted, but our lives would be so much different/less comfortable without electricity!
- The ability to travel (as a family, and as a couple)
- My extended family: Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc. Family is great :)
- My church family
- Our ability to host Thanksgiving with both sides of the family
- So much more!!!
Alan and Daniel (my brother) playing tether ball Thanksgiving morning.
The park was so beautiful. It really felt and looked like Fall.
The little boys are a little close to the game.... No toddler injuries thankfully...
|Matthew after completing his Hand Turkey the night before Thanksgiving. (Don't look, but you can see the kitchen was nowhere near clean the night before)|
|Two years of Hand Turkeys (Adam's turkeys on the left, Matthew's on the right). Now a proud tradition!|
|Love this picture! Matthew is in green, Adam in red. Little cousin in blue :)|
|Adam in the fire pit ;)|
|Matthew exploring nature|
|My second ever turkey|
|Table 2. We hosted 14 adults and 3 kids, including our family|
|This is a family friend that is also Alan's chiropracter. Alan sees her about once a week, and we bring the boys along. This time, the tables are turned, and Matthew is working on her back. So cute!|
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!
