It was so nice to have someone here to help with that.

The boys table turned out adorable.

I think the boys enjoyed sitting by themselves.

We enjoyed such a nice relaxing meal.

As we shared what we were thankful for I was amazed as the majority of thankfuls were for Family and Friends.

Isaac however, was thankful for his Mac truck.

I am thankful for a day to reflect on all the blessings we have been given.

I am also thankful for my time spent away from home that has forced me to learn how to cook a turkey and a complete Thanksgiving meal.  This was our 7th Thanksgiving away from home.  It is hard to be away from our family, but I am thankful that I can recreate the feelings I felt as a child in my own home.

What a wonderful tradition we have to celebrate our blessings by preparing the best meal we can make.

Stella Dinner

Blessings are certainly worth celebrating.

Ady dinner

I also love that we only eat this food together once a year.  It makes the meal even more special.

Krys and Ady

It was fun to share it with the Moes family.

Tess dinner

After dinner, we loaded everyone up for a movie.  We saw Tangled; it was adorable.

After the movie, we cleaned up, had dessert and put the kids to bed.


The adults enjoyed some time doing what we love; playing cards.

The whole weekend was so much fun.

So yummy! I was just thinking the other day how proud I am of us. We really are grown ups and capable of so much. Sometimes it's hard to believe that we have come this far.

I really love that group shot. It was totally worth the effort!
