Happy Thanksgiving!

I have so many wonderful Thanksgiving memories spent at my Grandparents home, eating dinner at the "kids table" with all my cousins. :) My Grandma Gayle would make these AMAZING rolls each year that dripped with butter - so good! I made 3 dozen of them today to enjoy with family tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving Chelsi, Ian, Sasha and Demri! We miss you guys and we're so thankful for your friendships! God has given me so, so much to be thankful for! I love that worship song that says, "If I don't praise your name, even the rocks will cry out. If I don't praise your name, even the mountains will shout."

Josh and I are so thankful for our little toddler and his joyful heart and our sweet, sweet girl. These following photos are for all of you families out there with toddlers. :) I hope this will come to your mind and make you feel better when you wonder why you can't get a nice easy shot of your two year old (especially right before nap time). Ha! My brother Matt was nice enough to try to get a family shot for us when were together for his 30th birthday, while my mom danced by the camera trying to get Jude to smile. Hilarious. We had a good laugh and Matt suggested we use these for our Christmas card! We love our Jude bug!

Ha! These pictures really crack me up. We don't have toddlers anymore, but I remember what it was like :-) Fortunately for us, our grandson Daniel seems to be conditioned to stop and grin at cameras. A real little ham.

May God bless you all!
