Happy Thanksgiving!

I am so thankful for the jogger who ran by and asked if she could take our photo (yes, please!). From my family to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your weekend. xo

Happy (early) Birthday, Colton!

Colton turns one on Tuesday, December 3. But we celebrated a little early today. This way our family who was in town for Thanksgiving could be there to witness his first bite – eh, finger smash – of cake.

He’s getting so big! He’s so physical (loves to climb, crawl, walk (almost) and wrestle). We have had many “wrestle mania” nights in our living room. This boy has brought us such joy and truly is a blessing from up above. We love you, buddy! Forever and always.

Thanksgiving 2013

Colton’s first Thanksgiving was a hit! He ate mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and played with the big kids out in the lawn. I had so many moments where I just sat back and gave thanks. Thanks for my family. Our health. And all of the new little kids that surround us. God is good.
