I will admit that this year has been kind of tough certain days for our little family- nothing too serious for the most part, just full of adjustments and some changes. Transitioning out of working full time to working part time from home, having a new baby, adjusting to Barry's new job/hours and travel, life with two kids now that Ty doesn't just sleep all day (or night for that matter!)...some days have been challenging. But, despite that, we have so much to be thankful for and this time of year just gets me all sentimental. I am so thankful for the blessing of having another baby, thankful that we have jobs we both like and thankful to have supportive family and friends to help out on those challenging days. But mostly I am thankful for time with family because even though some of the days go by soooo slowly (in my sleepless, zombie fog I am often in) time really is flying by!
This year we spent Thanksgiving in Yoakum. We arrived on Wednesday and the 4 of us spent the afternoon out in the country hanging out in the barn and doing some hunting. I thought Sawyer was going to be terrified but she loved it and couldn't wait to "put the pig on the fire so we could eat it because her tummy loves pig." Apparently.
The only way to keep him quiet in the blind...puffs.
Sawyer watching the dogs (a.k.a. deer) with her daddy. And me practicing my impeccable photography skills.
Wednesday night we celebrated Granny's birthday.
And Logan and Sawyer were kind enough to serenade her.
We spent Thursday morning and lunch at Grandma Cowan & Raymond's house. The kids had such a blast playing outside and sitting at their own table. Side note: if Sawyer is wearing something that has a hood on it, she must wear it. Regardless of temperature. #toddlerfashion
And Ty got to have his first taste of turkey. He loved it and I couldn't get it to him fast enough.
We spent the afternoon at Aunt Gay's house - more playing with cousins and lots of Black Friday ad shopping. Sawyer got her first birthday present - crowns and princess shoes and didn't take them off the rest of the weekend.
We spent Friday around the house, pretty much in PJs all day! And crowns.
We stayed so that we could go to the Yoakum football playoff game Friday night.
We ended up driving back that night and spent Saturday getting out our Christmas decor. I am thankful for such a great time with family and especially thankful for my two little helpers!
