Happy Thanksgiving! We had a great day with extended family, tons of delicious food, and lots of laughter. I ate wayyy too much as always. Diego and Ford were the "turkeys" of the bunch making everyone laugh and smile all evening. Diego ate mostly bread and even stole an extra huge piece and walked away with it. Callie and I dressed as twins and so I took the opportunity to get a family photo since its a rare instance when we actually get one. I am so thankful for all I have; my husband, my kids, my family both near and far, my home, my new work, and my life. We are so blessed in so many ways and I need to remember to be more thankful rather than complain about the little things tht frustrate me. Tonight when Callie and I were saying our nighttime prayer, I asked her what she was thankful for. I tried to model for her about dinner and what was my favorite and she got mad and said you took mine, that's what I am thankful for. Hysterical. Ireminded her we can be thankful for the same things. And she chose to be thankful for Ford and Diego. Awww melted my heart.
