Gobble Gobble!

I am thankful for my wonderful husband who works tirelessly all day, yet comes home to a house full of chaos and dives right into to his night job, daddy. He often goes with so little so that Luke and Emma can have so much.
I am thankful for my two beautiful children, who bring such joy to my days. I'm so blessed to be able to wake up to their smiling faces each morning, and to tuck them into bed most nights. They keep my days exciting and entertaining. I just love watching them grow!
I am thankful for my family, who is always there to support us and provide us encouragement. I am thankful for friends who let me comlain about a long day, but also remind me in the many ways I am blessed.
But mostly, I am thankful for an awesome God, who has given me much to be thankful for. He has provided me with everything. I am thankful to live in a country where men and women fight selflessly so that I may worship Him freely.
Thanksgiving was busy, like all the others. We started our morning by making a turkey with Luke. He recently discovered how to use scissors and is eager to practice any chance he gets. I cut out the body and wings, and he helped me cut out the feathers. He's becoming quite good!
We went to my mom's house for dinner, and spent time with Aunt Melissa, Aunt Laura, Miya and Kyleigh. It was so nice for Luke and Emma to see and play with their cousins.

It is extremely difficult to get two toddlers and two infants to even look in the same direction at the same time, much less get them all to smile!

Luke and Miya are such good buddies!

Emma thoroughly enjoyed herself on her first Thanksgiving. She loved trying the sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, baked beans, and cranberry sauce. And lets not forget the yummy desserts!

Emma was intently eyeballing my piece of dessert...

And so excited when I gave her a taste!

After dinner (and dessert) and Nana's house, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Bradley's for (more) dessert. Luke loved playing with Uncle Jesse's race track and eating Grandma's brownies.
From our family to yours!,

Love, The Bradleys
Jacob, Cassie, Luke & Emma
