I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone. We look forward to it all year, and it feels like it's over in the blink of an eye.
I am so thankful for so many things. First, my salvation, of course, because without Jesus life is empty. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband and beautiful children, my parents and sisters, my church family, my health...I could go on and on. God has been so good to me. He has given me so many of the desires of my heart.
I thought I'd give you a little peak into our day. We had a wonderful day together as a family.

|She's becoming my right hand in the kitchen - she loves helping.|

|We tried something different this year. We put all of the main dishes in the kitchen buffet style so I could have room to decorate the table.|
|Family time - the best|
|Something I'm very thankful for this year - a new mixer from my wonderful husband.|
|"I'm not looking at the camera, Mommy." I love this little guy. He has grown up so much since last Thanksgiving. He has been my most challenging child, but he is incredibly sweet (when he's in a good mood~wink).|
We ended our day with a walk to the park, then over to Timmies for a muffin. I love these times we spend together as a family storing up memories.
How was your Thanksgiving? Or if you haven't celebrated it yet what are your plans for making it special?
