Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving weekend, we are SO very grateful for these beautiful, lively, healthy, entertaining, noisy, loving, forgiving, exasperating, hilarious, awesome kids. They each bring so much to our family! And aren't they cute?
And then it's probably about time (or way past time), to mention the other blessing that's coming our way, for which we are very grateful. We had been trying to wait until Christmas to tell everyone by showing up with a big bow on my belly, but about a week ago my belly rather inconveniently popped out and we knew we couldn't make it through Thanksgiving without someone ... or everyone noticing. So we came home early to tell our family about our upcoming arrival, expecting to make it's appearance sometime around March 19th. Yep, that makes me more than five months pregnant. And nope, we hadn't even told our moms yet. I know. We're a little bit crazy. It actually became a little bit of a game to see how long we could go with just us knowing our secret! Thankfully, it's been the easiest pregnancy and has almost flown by. For which I am very grateful too!
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you had a great one with lots of family and yummy food!
