A Lot to be Thankful For

Thanksgiving has been amazing!

We have had family here for a week. My Mama, cousin and uncle. The week was busy and super fun!

Sunday night we had 15 of my family members over for a traditional turkey dinner and it was delightful.

It was fun to have my mom here and share in the preparation and cooking of our delicious meal.

The best part was that Ade was here for it all. There was a childrens' table and he was sitting at it. There was much running, jumping, shouting and general silliness and he was right in there keeping up with the other kids.

It was so hectic around here that I didn't even have time to grab my camera and take a single photo. (I am very disappointed with myself for this) but here is what it looked like:

The baby in his high chair with a bib, dropping his bottle and plate every so often.

The toddlers at the kids table eating, bouncing,giggling and not listening to a word they are told.

The pre-teen bouncing around the room and the teenager on her phone texting her boyfriend and friends.

The adults sitting around the dinner table drinking wine and beer and laughing at the chaos happening around us.

Sigh!

We have so much to be thankful for!

Our health.

Our home.

Food on the table.

Good friends.

Loving family.

Ade.

Happy Thanksgiving!
