Thanksgiving Part 3

On Saturday, we headed down to Lowndes County to celebrate Thanksgiving with my dad at our "farm". Edward had a blast. He rode the gator, 4-wheeler and golf cart. Again, he got lots of love from his Papa (my dad), CiCi (dad's wife) and his uncle and aunts. He loved being able to run in wide open spaces. Later that night, my sister and Brooke decided that they wanted to cook smores. We made a quick trip to Greenville for all the necessities and they made their smores over the fire. We had great fellowship! I hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

Thanksgiving Part 2

This year I am thankful for so many things. I am thankful for my amazing husband. He works so hard to provide for our family. He has been so busy over the last week they we have hardly seen him, but I appreciate his hard work so that I can be a stay at home mom. I am thankful for my children. I am truly thankful for the little miracle that God has created. I really did not think that I would be able to get pregnant without the use of fertility drugs. I asked God for patience and I month later I was pregnant. It is truly a gift from God! I am so thankful for my wonderful family. My brother aggravates the stew out of me, but what are brothers for? I am thankful for my mom and the hard work she put into hosting a fabulous gathering!!

Thanksgiving day was celebrated at my mom's house in Montgomery. As always, fun was had by all. Things were a little different this year. My middle sister, Anne Moreland, and her boyfriend traveled to Boston to visit a friend so they were not with us. It was so sad to not all be together. Edward got lots of love from his aunts and uncle. Every year for as long as I can remeber our family has played a lawn game called Bocce Ball. For those of you who are not familiar with the game, it is a cross between bowling and horseshoes. The men enjoyed playing this year and the women were thoroughly entertained by Edward!! It was a great day and the little one was a trooper especially with no nap!

Thanksgiving Part 1

We started off our Thanksgiving by celebrating with Thomas' mom's side of the family on Wednesday night. His aunt, uncle and cousin from Atlanta came down and we all met at the assissted living home where Thomas' grandfather lives. We celebrated Thanksgiving and his grandfather's 88th birthday! Here are a couple of pictures from that night.

We are still here...

I am aware that it has been a while since I posted anything. This pregnancy has had me SO sick and being the old fashioned couple that we are, we have not invested in a laptop. You see, our desktop computer is in our KITCHEN and that is a room that I have been avoiding for the last several weeks!

On the pregnancy front, I will be 14 weeks on Wednesday. I hope that I will be out of the woods and running freely from this all day sickness very soon!!!!

I know I have a lot to catch up on so bear with me as I update.
