Thanksgiving Week

Thanksgiving week was wonderful and full of much more than just a nice dinner with my family in San Jose. We are so blessed and the week was full of wonderful things to be grateful for. It included...

Kyle and I committing to do our best to raise our kids to know, love and serve God (getting blessed) as well as our church family committing to supporting us.

Goofing off with dad

Learning new games (I rock but nobody took my picture!)

Falling asleep at the table

Teaching our new fondant cookie tricks to the family (thanks for teaching me Glory)

Trying new things

Turning the garage into another play room

Laughing at mom because I learned to walk (at 7 months and 1 week) and made her cry

Celebrating cousins birthdays with them

Eating Thanksgiving dinner

Taking lots of pictures

Ice skating with family

Loving on Papa

Doing some of Adia's favorite things

Catching up with old friends (missed you Kelly, Johnny and Lindsey)

Watching inappropriate movies and getting hurt trying to do what we see("Hulk Smash")
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving week as well and let us not forget that, even though life can be super rough at times, we are super blessed!

We had a good time! I tried my best to keep Kaden down on his knees but he was bound and determined to walk. And thanks for TEACHING ME how to fondant cookies. Watching you guys all make like rock stars that was something were filming. Funny when you sing and play those instruments the whole body and facial expressions go with it. Loved seeing the kids enjoying the horses. And thank God for all the muddy shoes & trails of mud in the garage, laundry rm., down the hall to the kitchen because that meant they were all having a good time. Love those family times. They make such good memories. Love All of You
