God, you've brought
many blessings
home today,
hearts full of cheer,
children at play,
a turkey in the oven,
pies steaming hot,
the table laden--
there's nothing
you forgot.
You've brought
good friends near
and loved ones as well,
for smiles and hugs,
and news to tell.
And we gather together,
eager to share
beginning our feast
with a heartfelt prayer.
Like the pilgrims of old,
we thank you God,
for the gifts of the harvest
reaped from the sod.
We look around us
and for all the
blessings we see,
we bow our heads,
in gratitude to Thee.

We had a great Thanksgiving last Thursday. We got together with some of our friends and we had a lot of fun. Heavenly Father has blessed us tremendously this year and there's so many things we're thankful for!

We let our husband babysat the kids at midnight and we started joining the crowd for black Friday shopping. We had a blast!

He has been sitting up on his own starting at 4 1/2 months..

Aaron found his feet around 5 months and he thought they're yummy that he loves to put them in his mouth!

He holds his own bottle @ 4 months..

We had a craft activity ( Tree Of Thanks) for our family home evening last Monday. We invited the Matin's to join us. It was a fun night!

Last Saturday we got together at one of our friends house to watch the fight of Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto. It was fun and we're so proud that Manny Pacquiao won!
