Thanksgiving- so much to be grateful for!

Reflecting over the past year brings tears of joy to my eyes...we have sooooo much to be thankful for this year. We've had births, illnesses, and losses in our family but there is something to be thankful for in all challenges. Last Thanksgiving I was just recovering from my ectopic pregnancy and subsequent emergency surgery, and wasn't sure if I would be able to get pregnant again. It was just a couple of weeks later that I did get pregnant with the twins. They are of course the biggest and best blessing of my entire life and I'm so grateful to have them. All three of us were so blessed to make it through the pregnancy and birth with only minor complications and we're all happy and healthy now! Andie's mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer this past year and has successfully gone through treatment and is now cancer free- a huge blessing! Andie's grandfather passed away this past year but we choose to believe he is one of our special angels and that he had something to do with us getting our "bonus baby". We both have wonderful families who are a phenomenal support system for us. I am especially grateful to my mother who has kept me sane and provided more help with the twins than seems humanly possible! I am also so thankful to have a wonderful, helpful, and supportive husband, and a strong marriage. We are blessed to have stable jobs with steady income, especially in this shaky economy. There is not one thing in my life that I can complain about and that's something to be thankful for.


  1. Amen! I am so glad everything is going well and that you were blessed this past year. You have a wonderful outlook on life and with that perspective all is possible! Happy Holidays!

  2. I LOVE that bed picture below! And I'm so happy God has blessed you (twice) with some gorgeous babes. :) Their first Christmas is right around the corner, too! Yay!
