Thankful Thanksgiving

I don't know if it was Anthony's recent trip to Haiti, or just our overall outlook, but we are feeling more thankful and blessed than normal this Thanksgiving.

I mean, look at where we are compared to this...

Between a humbling trip and the wonderful life with which we've been blessed, Thanksgiving 2014 left us more thankful than we could have dreamed.

As always, one of the things we are most thankful for is our family. Our little 5-man clan is just more than I could have ever imagined. I could write 1,000,000 posts about my little family and how much they mean to me, but hopefully all of you know that by now. Needless to say, I am so so thankful for these guys...

I am also so thankful that we got to see every single one of our (immediate) family members this week. Every last one of them! If that isn't something, then I don't know what is!

Anthony and I have both been blessed with wonderful, loving families. Families who have accepted each of us as one of their own. Families who would go to the end of the earth for us without hesitation. We also have been blessed with FUN families! There is never a lack of laughter or shenanigans (or chaos!) with our families. We are truly thankful for the fun family time we were able to have this past week!

And now for a recap of the week in pictures... because you KNEW that was coming!

Jay busted out with this little gem in Dallas- other than his name it's his first official word to write! That's right! (Yes, I was sitting there but it counts!)

Thanksgiving with Anthony's fam!

I just had to include this. This was a daddy diaper job. You would think by our third kid Anthony might be better at getting a diaper on the baby. No poop was inside the diaper. All in her jeans, but none in the diaper. Awesome.
