Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I hope you are all having a tremendous day with your loved ones! Today has been an excellent one for me. I woke up last in the house (as usual) and joined the rest of my family members on the couch to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The smells of the meal cooking filled the house and a feeling of warmth overwhelmed my soul. The rest of my family arrived and we all quickly set to work preparing our Thanksgiving lunch and setting the table together. Finally, everything was ready and the selfies began. Everyone was dressed up and wanted to take pictures... which frustrated my very hungry Dad. ha. We all sat down to eat and enjoyed a delicious meal. I think my family cooks the best Thanksgiving meal. After we all finished eating, we went around the table to say what we are thankful for. Then we pulled names for Christmas presents. After lunch we all gathered outside for our annual family picture and then some of us headed over to the pool. We're ending our day with football and pie! I seriously love my family so much and I am so blessed to be able to spend time like this with them. They're my favorite people and my heart is so incredibly full. Here are some pictures from our day!

What do you do for Thanksgiving? What are some of your family traditions? 

My Daddy, upset about all the pictures and the not eating.

This isn't from today... but the one thing that would have made today better is if he was
here with me and my family. Missing my boy on this holiday... so thankful for him though.
