We went to Spence & Heather's like always and enjoyed some great family time. Right before we eat, we go around the table and say what we're thankful for. This year was funny because it seemed the tears started before anyone started speaking. We really are such a lucky bunch to have each other. I'm so thankful for this crazy family tree I've been given.
Both kids really latched on to Kaitlyn while we were there, especially Maddy. Brandt was a menace and super tired but handled himself fairly well. The weather was beautiful, I love being up there where things just seem quieter. After dinner we played Pictionary where the girls WHOOPED ON the guys. Heh.
I'm thankful for Mike. He really is everything to me. This year has been prettydifficult & through it all, he's so strong. He takes such good care of us and loves us so much. I can't imagine how he loves me some times... It's a lot to take on, that's for sure! He's definitely the best dad ever, my kids won the lottery there.
And my kids! Aaaaghhh. They're the best. We've definitely struggled with all the changes this year, but by 'we' I mean me. They've been champs. And Brandt is the perfect addition to our family, the little stinker. I keep praying for a kid that's 'easy' but instead I get these amazing, rotten, chock-full of personality babies, and he's no different. He keeps me on my toes for sure, but I guess that's what I need.
My mom is such a blessing to me. She's ALWAYS there when I need her, always. Although I take some of her suggestions as criticism, I know she's just trying to help in her way. The kids adore her and honestly, I know for a fact I wouldn't have made it through this year without her. I am so blessed to have her as my mom!!
