Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm home with a stuffed (and much bigger looking than this morning) belly thinking back on what a great Thanksgiving we had this year! I am overwhelmed with how many things in my life God has blessed me with which I am thankful for: my wonderful husband, this amazing miracle growing inside of me, my family, friends, a fulfilling job, and so much more. I most importantly recognize that these have all been given to me by our Lord, and all good things come through him.

We were busy and had 2 different places to go to. We started off with Matt's fathers side of the family in a land far, far away (seriously, it was!) where his aunt and uncle live. It was a new house they recently built which is on the Warrior River, which was beautiful, but in the middle of nowhere.

me and as Matt says "my poofy hair"
 After leaving Matt's fathers side of the family, we headed to his mothers house where we had Thanksgiving Meal #2. Early on, I gave the baby a pep talk that we would have a great food day and would eat tons, so get ready! And it was all soo good. Both baby and I were happy campers.
A serious game...of UNO

Matt and me....and seriously, my belly is not this big (well, for now). It grows as I eat more and more!! haha!
We really had a great Thanksgiving. And now I'm thankful for my pjs. And that I am wearing them right now.

Tomorrow is Christmas decorating day! I have somehow convinced Matt to go buy a tree and put up our decorations tomorrow. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
I hope you counted your blessings this year and had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
