Today is the day that we are reminded to be thankful for all that we have, the  good, the bad, the ugly! I am so thankful for all the wonderful things that God has blessed me with in this life. I am so thankful for the family the family that I am blessed to have, even when I am frustrated, or upset with them I know that I am very lucky to have them. I am thankful for a husband that brings me so much laughter, joy, protection and love. I am thankful for children that bring me so much laughter, joy, drama, stress, and love. I am thankful for parents and grandparents that have given me so much love and guidance. I know that I am so blessed each day and take it all for granted. I am so glad for days like today that make me stop and remind myself of all that God has give me. Today I am thankful for a full life, it might not be a perfect life but it is a perfect life for me. 
 I wanted some photos of the kids before lunch, but at first Cy was a sleep, Stella was being very dramatic, and Rhett was being super goofy. I was getting frustrated with them but then I realized that these were the perfect photos to express exactly how much children are at this point in our lives. I told my self to be thankful that some day I will be able to look back and remember exactly how they were at this point in our lives.

 Some smiles after being bribed with the thought of yummy deserts that Gigi was making.

 Cy woke up from his  nap and got to join in on the photo fun!

 We had such a good thanksgiving. We got to stay at home and have my grandparents and uncle come over to eat with us. Gigi made a wonderful feast for all of us. She was even wonderful and had projects to keep the kids busy while we were getting the meal ready.
 The kids got to make one of the appetizers, a fruit turkey for us to snack on.
 This evening we went to the square and looked at the lights. I love the little square and how pretty it looks this time of year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Feast

Today we got to attend Stella's Thanksgiving Feast at school. It is always fun to see her with all her friends.

Cy-6 Months

 6 months ago today you arrived a tiny baby in our arms, 6 months later you are more than a arm full! Cy, we love you so much, you bring so much joy to our lives.
 You had your 6 month check up and weighed in at 24 pounds and 5 ounces. You are 28 and 1/4 inches long. You are 99 % bigger than all the other little boys your age.
 We are pretty sure that you are trying to get some teeth but none have come through yet. Everything goes into your mouth and you do not go with a a bib because you are one big slobbery machine!
 Cy, you have started to sit up all on your own and love to sit on the floor and watch everything going on around you. You will lay on your tummy for a little while but not for long, it is not a favorite.
 You still do not sleep through the night, this is not one of my favorite things about you! Most nights we get up with you at least 4 to 5 times. Mommy is ready for some sleep.
 Cy, you have made the switch to all formula bottles now. You drink 8 ounce bottles every two to three hours during the day.
 You have finally started taking a passey!
 You are wearing size 4 diapers.
 You are wearing size 18 month clothing for the most part now, some 24 month depending on the brand of clothing.
 You have stated playing with a lot more toys, which is really fun to watch.

 We just switched you to your big boy car seat this week. I think that you like it a lot better, you look like it fits better and no so smashed into it.

Cy you are such a joy to be with each day. You may not sleep but you are full of smiles. I love all your baby rolls, baby laughter, baby slobber, I just love you so much!

Dr Office

Stella has a never ending runny nose so I took her in to see if we could get it fixed up. I was the crazy lady at the Dr office with three loud kids! Turned out Stella has a sinus infection, so they put her on an antibiotic and some new allergy medicine. We are hoping all this helps out
