On Thanksgiving morning, we packed up our van and our two little rascal’s and headed to…
Which is where my sister and her husband live on 40 acres of heaven.
They are the grandparents that we don’t get to be, to our little people. Their daughters are like aunties to little man and little lady. We adore them.
The little people think they are the cat’s meow.
Besides eating really well, we walked in the woods, climbed deer stands and swung on the swing.
We warmed up around the fire.
Grandpa Jim keeps us busy with hauling wood and doing little jobs.
Grandma Judie made us pancakes with fruit faces and homemade chokecherry syrup on them. Yum.
We went to a fish house parade….little man got interviewed by the parade mc…he was not shy at all.
And silly people throwing beads…
A couple of my favorites…
Raising money to help those in need…
And a chance to donate toys for children…
Lots of fun silly fish house floats to see…
Lots of people having fun…
It might not be the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade but it sure is lots of fun.
We left with a bag full of candy.
Grandma Judie kept us busy with doing crafts. We made snowmen.
Rachel Ray got to make cookies with Grandma Judie.
Of course, Emeril had to get in on the action.
Their finished product…
I think “grandpa & grandma” look tired out and our 2 little people are looking pretty sad to be leaving.
Our hearts are full of thankfulness for these people that make us feel so special and loved all year long.
Thank you Grandpa Jim & Grandma Judie!
Thank you Leah & Kaitlyn!
Thank you for all that you give to us. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. We love you!
My heart is full tonight as I write, look at photo’s and reflect on these past few days.
I am thankful for my parents and all my brothers and sisters and their spouses…for all the support they give my husband and I in this grand adventure of second time parenting. I am thankful for all the love they give to our little people. I know we couldn’t do this without the love and support of those that surround us.
To live a life of gratitude is to open our eyes to the countless ways in which we are supported by the world around us.Such a life provides less space for our suffering because our attention is more balanced. We are more often occupied with noticing what we are given, thanking those who have helped us, and repaying the world in some concrete way for what we are receiving.

I hope that your eyes are open to all that surrounds you.
