Thanksgiving 2014

What a difference a year makes in one's life. Last year was one of the hardest year's of my life that I ever had to experience.  This year has been so exciting and I am so thankful for Luke coming into mine and Andy's life.  I can't even remember how life was without Luke and I don't want too because he is the joy in our lives!

We started out Thanksgiving morning with a wake-up call from Luke at 7:30 AM.  I can handle a wake-up call at 7:30 AM, it's the 5 AM wake-up call and ready to play that's tough! Luke had a bottle and Mommy had a granola bar.  Thrilling, I know!  We then played for a bit on our activity mat and then stared at the fun black and white blanket.  Nap time was around 9:30 AM and then we both got dressed for our day.  Of course Luke had a "Turkey" outfit to wear, DUH!  He had a Turkey butt and Turkey toes.  I'm glad he was able to wear his outfit because it was just barely too small for him.  He is just so tall!

Happy Turkey Day Luke!

Turkey Butt!

Snoozin on Mommy

We had a breakfast brunch over at my in-laws consisting of french toast casserole, potatoes and sausage, orange rolls, cinnamon rolls, fruit, oatmeal and juice. It was all so tasty and good!  We then spent time with his family.  Andy's Aunt and Uncle came in from Michigan to spend Thanksgiving with us and they got to meet Luke for the first time too!

We then had our Thanksgiving dinner over at my brother's house.  I am SOOOO Thankful that we were able to spend Thanksgiving with him.  With him being a police officer and us living in the St. Louis, we were not sure if he was going to be called out or not.  Dinner consisted of turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, fruit salad, and punch.  Claire was so excited to see "Baby Luke".  He was sleeping in his car seat and she "showed" him how to use an iPad. It was so cute!  We were even able to get a photo of Jackson, Claire and Luke together.  It was adorable!

3 Generations!

That smile just melts my heart!!
