First Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!
This past weekend we kicked off the holiday season with our first Thanksgiving. Greg's parents hosted it at their house- we had fun visiting and eating a yummy meal! This was the first time that Greg and I have a had a Thanksgiving with just our immediate family. Both of our parents were there and Anthony and Chelsea were home this weekend to enjoy the get together. It was very nice to have everyone special to us sharing a meal. We are so thankful for such an awesome family!

I love my Pops!!!

Is Ivy the center of attention? Why, no, of course not! :)

*I have been saying "Say cheese" and this is the face we get!*

Ivy and Grandma playing with Ivy's favorite toy.


Grandpa and I were both there but didn't end up in any pictures!! So sad~ :(
It is hard to catch Grandpa and Ivy because they are always off on an adventure!

Now, that we have officially had a Thanksgiving meal I am so ready to bust out all of the Christmas decor. Before I do that I have to spend some time in prayer begging that Ivy is not tempted to pull everything off the tree. I am not sure we can have that battle for a month! And if she is so very tempted I am praying that God grants me the patience to deal with it. Everybody should include that in their prayers!


  1. Looks fun! I'm getting the decor out this weekend :) YAY!

  2. I have been having the same thoughts about my Christmas decorations! Good luck!


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
