Full of Thanks...

...and food.  And wine.  And happiness. 
We're still recovering from a long week of celebrating with family and friends.

Here are a few things we're thankful for:

1)  (Easy to reach) breakfast buffets with a seemingly endless pastry selection.

2) Healthy baby girls.

3) Food in the shape of other things.

4) Brother-in-laws who prep your turkey, but let you pose with it and take the credit ;)

We are thankful for:

5) The bond between cousins.  No matter the time or distance.

And the closeness with cousins we get to see often.

We are thankful for:

6)  A way to express creativity.
In the art room making turkeys and playing dress up.
Making our ornaments.
We are thankful for:

7) Aunts and Uncles who love us.

8) Grandparents who adore us.

9)  Just enough space for a grand dinner.  And an impromptu dance party.
Kid's table!

We are thankful for:

9) Traditions.  And electricity :)
Drum roll....
10) And friends who are more like family.

 Billy and I curled up in front of our happy fireplace on Sunday night completely exhausted, our house still smelling like smoked turkey, and decided there wasn't anything more we could ask for.  Our lives are full and for that we're thankful.
