well, we did it. we traveled with our newborn. and while i wouldn't say that this thanksgiving weekend falls into the "relaxing" category of trips we have taken, it was still a wonderful time to be with family and reflect on God's provision for the early settlers as well as for us today. and we do have so much to be thankful for.
for starters, i am thankful my mom now knows i'm not exaggerating when i say that mason cries ALL the time. ok, well... not when he is eating or sleeping and not for a cumulative total of about 22 minutes the rest of the day. but even though i am thankful for him, he is quite the fussy little thing. and i feel validated when others can witness it for themselves.
we are also thankful for:
thanksgiving crafts with grammy
hide and go seek... daddy style
fun times with family
(great-great aunt pauline)
meeting great-grandma darlene
extra hands to hold a fussy baby
someone to blow in our faces (hey, don't knock it 'till you've tried it...)
visiting poppa at work
helping grammy decorate for christmas (because mommy never lets us touch stuff like this!)
