On Thursday, we went to my Maw-Maw's house and spent Thanksgiving with her, my Paw-Paw and my dad. We always have a great time there, choosing to venture outdoors. It's so neat to get to share our happy memories and experiences there with Asher, Ainsley, and Jonah.
My brother, Peyton, and his wife, Amy.
Peyton was awesome with Jonah this week. He and Sarah both gave me so many breaks and entertained him. Jonah is sometimes not great with guys, but he LOVES my brother. Maybe he senses that he's kind of like his Mommy. I don't know, but it was awesome. They spent a lot of time looking at cars from the porch, walking, and taking golf cart rides.

My oldest and youngest siblings. Nineteen year age difference. :)
There was lots of football throwing...
And golf cart riding...
Jonah was scared out of his mind at first (notice the look of terror on his sweet little face)....
But as long as we were moving, he was a happy (or at least, not crying, clinging on for dear life) little boy.

My beautiful Maw-Maw.
My two sisters with Maw-Maw. I love them. :)
I'm thankful for so many things. I never thought I'd get to celebrate any Thanksgivings with my Jonah, and now I've had the pleasure of TWO! I'm thankful for my amazing husband who is more than I could ever have hoped for, my miracle son who continues to beat the odds and inspire the best in others, my family and friends who are such a huge support, my wonderful church family, my cozy little house, and a million other things. Most of all, I'm thankful for my God, who never gives up on me, shows me unconditional love that I could never replicate or understand, and gives me a clean slate every day. My cup runs over.
(We went to the zoo today and it was AWESOME. I'll post photos of that later. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Also, Jonah turns 21 months today. Can you believe he'll be two years old in three months? Me neither.)
