did you get your fill?

our thanksgiving consisted of delicious food, wonderful company, laughter, games, music, and a little football for the boys~ it really was a great day, start to finish! some of the highlights for me were...

~bath time with harper. i had intended to take a quick shower by myself but i was followed down the hall by a sticky blond haired toddler, frantically signing "BATH!!". how could i resist?

~and this. chocolate and peppermint? bring it on! it is really tasty in my coffee!


~a visit from my baby brother. we don't see him nearly enough even though he only lives a mile away.


~ and oh, the food! our thanksgiving meal was perfect. and i ate... a lot!

i ended the evening with a full belly and a full heart. being a mama is challenging and busy and often downright exhausting, but it is worth every second. it is worth every tear shed and every sleepless night. i am the mama of this house...



...and those are big shoes to fill!

That is well said! It reminds me to be thankful...even through the frustation and tears. :)

How cute! Love the last picture. Plus, I'm a sucker for little blond curly headed boys! (My own little curly top often gets mistaken for a girl!)
