No, this is not my shoe.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday at my Aunt Carmen's house. The boys had a blast playing football, wrestling, and other crazy games with a house full of little boy cousins. We feasted on way too much food including way too many desserts and relaxed and watched some football. There were a few minor accidents from not wearing shoes and stubbing their toes on the concrete and one major crash. Nick dove head first into the fence while trying to catch a football pass. He caught it and got up with a huge goose egg on his head. He still has a pretty big mark on his forehead today. It must have been a pretty good crash because all his teenage cousins had a really scared fearful face when they ran in saying he was hurt. They felt really bad. He was trying so hard not to cry in front of the big kids because he idolizes those boys so much. Of course, they were super sweet to both boys and completely wore them out. They didn't make a peep the whole ride home.
We are once again incredibly thankful for so many things this year. Mostly, that we finally have two healthy children. We thank all of you for your love and support that keeps us going day in and day out. You mean the world to us.
