Today I thankful for so many things. For my family that God has blessed me with, for my church and the chance to know Jesus Christ, for getting to be with family today, for all of the wonderful friends and the support that I get from them, for my business, for my home, for the girls' birth mothers, for Vietnam, for the delicious meal that we had. And the list goes on and on and on. I have so much to be thankful for. My life is so full. I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you all have had the chance to count your blessings today. Happy, happy Thanksgiving!
It has been a long day. We do a noon lunch because it is a tradition to go to the Cowboys game. Ever since we have had kids, two people always stay home with Lucy, Annie, Austen, and Jaksen. I always volunteer because while I enjoy the Cowboys, I don't have the extreme love for them that Justin and his family have. So, June and I stayed with the kids. They were great, but 4 kids 3 and under is tiring!! June and I need a stiff drink!!
Today is always going to have extra special meaning for us because we arrived home from our extremely crazy trip to Vietnam for Annie at 9:30 am Thanksgiving morning last year. I seriously cannot even begin to describe how relieved I was to be back at home and have some reinforcements to help us for a while. The relief that came from knowing we were so close to our doctor and getting Annie the attention that she needed was the best feeling. The plane ride home, not so fun, but it could have been much worse. Jen took these amazing pictures for us that I will always treasure. It really means a lot to us that she came and met us on Thanksgiving and did this for us. Thanks again Jen!
One of my favorite pictures of all time. She was screaming bloody murder, just like she had been for the previous 1.5 weeks.
Jen is a genius. I had walked off to try and calm her down and Welcome Home was in the background. So cool.
I didn't care how much effort it took, I got them both dressed in darling dresses to meet everyone!
