Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love getting to spend time with family that we do not see very often. I love ironically enough the chaos of it all. The kids running around with their cousins and the rushing around in the kitchen to get the food prepared and the noise of everyone chatting and of course TV with the football game blaring in the background. It all just creates that memorable Thanksgiving atmosphere for me, to which I am so very grateful for.
I am thankful for the beautiful family that I have been blessed with! I am thankful for....
that heart melting smile,
being the most amazing father to our children,
making me laugh,
loving me,
being my rock,
being the best big brother,
sweet smile,
our fellow discovery channel enthusiast,
for helping me cook,
for making us smile,
being the entertainer of the group,
for his big bear hugs,
sweet smile,
for making us smile,
sweet smile,
infectious giggle,
her love for her big brothers,
for making us smile,

I am so thankful for all of my family and friends we are truly blessed.

Trick Or Treat But.........

"Mommy I don't wanna smell my feet!" This is what Hallie replied every time I asked her if she was ready to go trick or treating. I guess she had heard her brothers say the phrase "trick or treat smell my feet" one too many times and she had interpreted it wrong. Well needless to say she did end up going after all and had a great time. We went across the street for a Halloween party at our neighbors house and then we all went out trick or treating together. They had tons of fun. This year we had Jonah as GI Jonah and Mackay went as the Unknown Phantom and Hallie went has the beautiful Snow White, or as she called herself No White.
