Thanksgiving 2016

This year Thanksgiving looked a lot like years from the past... simple yet yummy. It was a quiet (as quiet as a house with 5 kids can get), rainy/windy day... and we embraced the laziness that came along with it. I joked that while many were prepping for this big day, I was barely keeping my kids alive. Chaos from the holidays can be so intense... creating the "perfect" Thanksgiving... there's nothing about that, that draws me in. It's completely off putting. With two new babies in the house, we decided to order a turkey a week ago from the local organic grocer. It was brined, stuffed and ready to head right into the oven... it was the BEST decision we could have made for this year... the yummiest decision. We pulled out the "fancy glasses" (the kids' favorite part) and gathered around the table... so much to be thankful for... God is so so good.
