Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Chris and me!

We have been hanging out with our families this holiday and it's been wonderful. The weather is great for getting outside, the food is delicious and plentiful, the Redskins beat the Cowboys, and I am wearing sweatpants...what's not to be thankful for?

We created a "thankful tree" this year for our centerpiece (as you can see, I was collecting branches of stuff on a walk we took the day before) and all hung leaves on the tree with what we were thankful for drawn or written on them.

In all seriousness though, we have so much to be thankful for: family, friends, faith, our marriage, jobs, where we live, our community, our church, full bellies, health, and everything we need and want. Our blessings are too abundant to count and if you ask me, that's a pretty good problem to have. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!

The thankful tree was great and caused lots of thought on why I am so grateful. And that apple pie you and Lauren were peeling apples for is one of them!!!! Delicious!
