Thanksgiving

was wonderful. It was such a beautiful day. A little on the warm side but beautiful nonetheless. We had a nice quiet morning, just the 3 of us. Thanked Jesus for our little peanut and enjoyed a peaceful morning. We spent the rest of the afternoon with the whole family at Chris' parents house. It was so wonderful having the whole family together. Dinner was absolutely delicious as were the drinks and desserts! It was our first year with not having to go from house to house, we stayed in one place the whole time with both of our families. We're looking forward to that being our new Thanksgiving tradition. So nice! A couple more things I am thankful for... Our baby's cry. As hard as it might be at times when it seems all she does is scream I am learning to be thankful for it. I have recently read of so many heartbreaking stories of people losing their little ones and her cry is a great reminder that she has air in those little strong lungs and is alive and well.. Another thing that seems so simple is so huge. For our full tummy's. Last night our tummies were so full and happy and I couldn't help but think of all the tummies that are hungry. I have never known what it feels like to be starving and my heart breaks for those who have that feeling day in and day out. We are counting our blessings...
Here are a couple pictures from yesterday....celebrating Kate's 1st Thanksgiving...
