We have been so blessed!! There is so much to be thankful for. God has given us more than we could ever imagine or deserve. We talked about thankfulness in our family worship time this week.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Tessalonians 5:18
My prayer is that I keep a thankful heart and teach it to my children. We all said what we were thankful for:
Matt: Family and the Bible
Emily: The gospel and healthy kids
Ben: His video games (yes such a good thing I know) and his family

We are enjoying a glorious day before Thanksgiving. The kind where you stay in PJs until noon and just watch movies and play games. The kids and I are really enjoying it. We are excited to have Daddy off starting tomorrow for 4 whole days!!! It has been a long time since he has been off so it sure will be nice! Our Thanksgiving plans are really low key so hopefully we will have a nice relaxing weekend.
A couple of things...
We are fish sitting for our neighbors fish Oscar. The kids are loving it!! They fight over who gets to feed him and they love just watching him swim.
And a Ben funny I have been meaning to write down...
A house on our street got rolled over the weekend. We were driving by and Ben said "They must be Auburn fans." You know that you are true Auburn fans when your kids don't think rolling is a bad thing but a show of fan loyalty!!

Sweet Kate had to go for her 2 year check up today. We survived with very little drama (she is not a high drama kind of girl so I wasn't expecting any). She weighed in at 28 pounds (67%ile) and 35 inches (80%ile). Her BMI is 16.1 (40%ile). So her growth is perfect (always important to this RD mama)!! I was able to answer yes to all of her milestone checks (although she isn't drinking enough milk and I give her skim milk but I know about that). And the doctor said she was "perfect." She did great with her toe prick and shot. Not a tear was shed. This girl is tough! Here she is showing off her band-aid.
I am so thankful for healthy children! I know what a blessing it is. I am around sick children at work all the time and I so appreciate God's gift of healthy for our children. Kate is 2 and has never been on antibiotics (except in the NICU). She has only had 2 sick visits and they were for not really sicknesses but rashes and allergies. We are so blessed!!

We had a lovely weekend. It was so very relaxing. Just what we needed after a busy few weeks! It was also full of some fun Thanksgiving activities which are always fun. Friday at school the kids had their Thanksgiving feast which was lots of fun. The whole school dressed up as either Pilgrims or Indians. Both kids came home with Indian head wear. In honor of that we watched Pocahontas as our Friday movie night movie! Saturday there was no where to be and nothing to do!! We all just hung around in our PJs. The kids enjoyed coloring and playing with toys!
Matt and I did some cooking. We made some yummy food for the evening including green bean bundles and 7 layer salad!
