Manic Monday

I had such a blast with my family on Thanksgiving. For some reason I was more thankful this year than any other year I can remember. Perhaps it's the fact that I am grateful for my children and their health or my parents still being here after some health scares, but I just felt so so grateful this Thanksgiving.
There was AMAZING food followed by awesome family conversation and laughs. I looked around and couldn't help but thank God for all the blessing he had given us.
 Josiah's clubfoot diagnosis really opened my eyes to so much, starting with being grateful that he's actually here. Josiah could have had something more severe, something incurable, but he doesn't he is healthy and thriving. In fact I am proud to say he started sitting on Sunday!!! (Cue the clapping!) I am oh so proud of him and all his accomplishments. His endurance and resilience truly amazes me daily and I can't help but be grateful that I am his mother.
So, yes, Thanksgiving was a hit and reminds me why it really is my favorite holiday. Thanksgiving is about appreciation, love and genuine feeling. It's a holiday where you don't have to buy gifts like at Christmas, birthdays or Easter, you just have to show up and share a meal with loved ones. You look around the table and appreciate the love that has brought you all there. You make memories and traditions. Need I say more. I had a great Thanksgiving. 

The weekend following Thanksgiving is always a crazy one around here. We put up the tree and decorate the house, watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music. The kids love helping with everything and I go mad trying to keep them from breaking everything. This weekend Luis had to work so we are doing everything today, however I did save myself some time and cleaned all weekend! I'm so excited and can't wait to start.
