It is that time of the year where we can take time to share how we are thankful for all of the blessings that we are so graciously given. Though we live in a society where things are practically handed to us and we hardly even know what a "want" is, it is sad to me that we need a holiday-and one with a turkey mascot- to remind us to stop and be thankful. This year, I vow to spend my days rejoicing in this lovely life full of many twists and turns of numerous blessings. For this Thanksgiving, I want to thank all of our family and friends for being such blessings in our lives. We are so grateful to have such wonderful people to support us, guide us and laugh with us. I hope that you all have a blessed day with your families, but most importantly, are able to take the time to look up and thank the one that has blessed us all!

My friend Erin and I took a painting class together the other night. It was a really neat experience. I have never painted before, so I was a bit nervous. To my surprise this class was very laid back with about 40 people snacking and chatting away while they created their masterpieces. I really have an appreciation for art and the many interpretations that it brings. So, I vow to keep trying this new painting thing out and see how my progress goes. But, for now, here is my first Masterpiece!

Noah is really into hiding. If he can squeeze into a spot he will. Often times I will find him hiding behind all of our clothes in our closet or next to the fridge. This day he decided to hide next to my nightstand and as he told it "Scare Mommy".
Noah is really into his cars, trucks and tractors. He especially loves his shirt from Gampa Parker. He likes to point at it and tell us all about Gampa's muscle car. Thanks Gampa!
This boy loves smoothies. (I will never tell him they are healthy!) They have become kind of special in our relationship. A couple times a week we will make them and drink them together. I enjoy the time that we get to share over our smoothies. I love how excited Noah gets to help put all the fruit in the blender. And, to my amazement, he will drink all of his faster than me and want more. That's my boy!
