We arrived in our hometown early Thanksgiving morning and spent the first half of the day with Terrell's family and the second half of the day with my family. It was a super full day but totally worth it to spend the holiday with both of our families. A blessing I won't ever take for granted.

The boys loved having lots of play time with cousins and lots of time at both grandparents' houses. They were also huge fans of all the desserts they enjoyed on Thursday. =)

Once we got to my parents' house on Thursday afternoon, there was lots of football to be played. My big boy was right in the middle of it. He secretly can't wait to be even bigger than he already is. I, on the other hand am not rushing things.
The newlyweds!! AnAn and Frankie. (Who had an amzing honeymoon in Jamaica by the way.)

After spending some time at my parents' house and the boys enjoying more play time with cousins, everyone left to go get a Christmas tree. While we almost froze, we had a great experience and found "the one" pretty fast. Maybe record fast. Garrison was a big helper. He helped Papa and daddy cut down the trees.
I am so thankful for 2 amazing, close-knit families to share holidays with. I'm thankful for wonderful, supportive, generous parents. I'm thankful we shared this Thanksgiving with all of our grandparents. And this year I was especially thankful to feel my third baby boy moving around and enjoying himself too. We are blessed and God is good.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100: 4-5
