Thankful for sure!

This past weekend marked a pretty disgusting first for our little family. For the first time our house was invaded by a stomach bug. By no small miracle I seemed to have dodged this one. I honestly don't know what we would have done if we were all that sick for three days. I will spare you the details (this time) and just say that I was so relieved to be greeted by a happy baby and a happy husband this morning. Not having to do a load of laundry before breakfast is always a good sign.

Now that everyone seems to be on the road to recovery our annual trip to Maine for Thanksgiving is officially on. As I look around my disaster of a house (which I really should be cleaning now) I am trying to remain positive and thankful for all that we have. 

Thanksgiving 2010
What a difference a year makes! 

This has been a both a wonderful and excruciatingly painful year. We have had SO so many wonderful milestones since last Thanksgiving. I am so thankful to have a wonderful husband who works so hard to provide for us so that I can stay home with Lily. I am thankful for a toddler who is happy and healthy and spends her days showering me with kisses and hugs. I am thankful to have another miracle baby on the way and pray that he/she is healthy. As I type this Dingle and I are sitting on the couch with a little muffin in between us. Life is good and we have so much to be thankful for...the messy house can wait. 

Safe travels wherever this week may take you and Happy Thanksgiving! 


  1. Aw. I miss you guys! Glad the stomach bug passed so you can head to Maine!

  2. glad you were spared the dreaded bug but still, no fun for anyone! And Lily's shirt is too stinking cute.
