A Weekend Of Thanks

"Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.”
~ Harry Ironside
Well, a little late -- but no less thankful! We had a big family dinner with Derek's side of the family then headed to the lakehouse in Shell Knob, MO with my parents for a long weekend. It was cozy and peaceful (well, as peaceful as it can be with 4 kids 5 and under) and lovely. And I was thankful.

Thankful for my little pilgrim and Indian.

Thankful for golf cart rides in the woods to explore and pretend.

Thankful for time at the water to throw rocks and share kisses.

Thankful for tickling/wrestling matches to help burn off 5 and 1 year old energy.


Thankful for glimpses at a future fierce sister friendship.

Thankful for all four kids in our bed in the mornings. And the way the 'big kids' love the 'little kids'.

Thankful for bedtime stories with the greatest man I know.

Thanksgiving may be one of my favorite holidays!
