I hope you all had a wonderful day!
Jason and I spent much of the morning in our pajamas with the kids watching Mickeys Once Upon a Christmas and chatting about how blessed we are with these two little babies. They complete our lives and bring us so much joy every single day.
It is so easy to take things for granted and we really want to teach our kids to have a grateful heart. To count their blessings, both big and small!
Last night after we put the kids to bed we came downstairs and realized the sink was full of dishes and there were toys all over the house. Jason tackled the toys and I tackled the dishes.
I was so so tired last night and my initial reaction was to grunt about it but then as I was washing the dishes, I found one of Claire’s toys in the sink and it made me smile (she likes to put her toys in the sink, in the garbage and in the toilet… this seems to be her thing now)!
I realized that these little messes are blessing because they mean that we are alive, well and blessed enough to be able to have and enjoy many things that others only dream of.
So Thanksgiving was not only a day to celebrate with family, but another reminder to have a thankful heart all the time. We truly are blessed.
After our slow morning at home, we headed over to Jason’s family for an early Thanksgiving dinner. My sister in-law is an amazing photographer (she shoots most of my blog photos!) and she took these family pictures of us today. I love them so much!
We will be celebrating with my family on Sunday and I will be hosting! This year I am especially Thankful to have both of our families nearby. It’s such a blessing to have family to spend the holidays with and just do life together.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
