I am finally getting around to posting about Thanksgiving.  Yes I know, it was weeks ago, but this is what happens.  Remember again about the passing out post?  Well unfortunately, blogging is at the bottom of the list.  We had an amazing Thanksgiving.  It started off a little rough for me.  Dave has made some amazing progresses in the middle east with the new contract taking over, but this was the day he reported being unable to make it home for Christmas and the baby being born.  Although, he did preface that with like 4 really good things, but of course that is the thing that stuck out to me the most.  However, the time away from our home and being with our families helped my mood considerably.  We spent the morning at his parents house.  They eat at 11, so we headed there first.  Man was there a lot of food and a lot of people and that meant a lot of fun.  Then about 2, we headed to my families home, to eat some more.
It is really hard to eat all of this yummy delicious thanksgiving food when you are 35 weeks pregnant!  But I did the best I could lol.

My mom had this surprise for the kids.  It was amazing.  It kept them busy for so long and they never seemed to bore of it.  In addition, my kind brother went out there and wrestled with the kids.  Joe is always really helpful in that way to me.  He always prepares himself to wrestle with my children which is one of the things they miss the most with Dave being gone.  I know he probably goes home each time thinking how much he hates seeing my children.  But I am so thankful for that simple act of service to me.  All in all, our thanksgiving ended up being great.  I have so much to be thankful for and I was again greatful for the opportunity to spend time with family and be reminded of how many more blessings with which the Lord provides.
