Giving Thanks


I love Thanksgiving. It seems to be the one holiday that isn't overcommercialized and still truly revolves around families coming together to count their blessings. I have so very, very much to be thankful for this year.


I am thankful for my beautiful boys who brighten my world every single day.


I am thankful for my adorable daughter who always has a kiss on her lips and a hug in her arms just for me.


I am thankful for my partner-in-crime. Not only is he a wonderful husband, he's also the best father I've ever seen.


And last, but certainly not least, I am thankful for our new baby boy. Although he is still waiting for us in China, he is always in our hearts and we can't wait to pick him up in just a few months.


I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh Allison, he's just precious! I am so happy to see a picture of your new little guy! How old is he? He looks like he is pretty close in age to Ms. Hot Dog! What a wonderful reason to be thankful this year.

I LOVE the picture of Hotdog praying. So sweet. Ellie will bow her head for a second and then go back to eating. When we are done, she claps. HA!!! Pudding is SO cute. He is going to be a wonderful addition to the sweet threesome you already have. I can't wait until you come home and I can come spoil him!
