Thankful

We have so much to be thankful for, not just today, but everyday. I am truly humbled by how blessed we are! God has been so good to me and my family even though I am so undeserving. I could spend the rest of my life praising God for His goodness and still not scratch the surface. I am thankful that my God is such an amazing God. I am thankful for a wonderful, loving family. I am thankful for a husband who is so patient and sweet. I am thankful that my husband is just as wonderful a father is he is husband. I am thankful for my beautiful, funny, precious, too cute for words, joyous, healthy daughter. I am thankful to live in a country where I can worship freely. I am thankful for my church family. I am thankful for sweet, supportive friends. I am thankful for my home (new and old!). I could go on and on.

We spent a lovely day with family today -- the best kind. Aubrey was so sweet and cute all day. I love seeing how much our families love her. There is just something about seeing people show love to your child. It gets me every time, and makes me love those people all the more. I pray that Aubrey will always realize how much she is loved by so many people and never take that blessing for granted.

To top off a beautiful day, when we got home Aubrey's pictures from yesterday were online! You can see them by clicking here. Click on client proofing on the top right and the password is ashton. Aubrey isn't smiling in many of them, but that's ok. I still think she's beautiful :o) Oh, does she not totally look like a little boy in the pictures in the blue sweater dress? It's ok, you can be honest ;o)

I hope that your Thanksgiving has been filled with good food, family, and lots of thankfulness to the God from whom all blessings flow! Happy Thanksgiving, friends! :o)

The pictures are so good! My two favorites are of her laying on the white rug and then the 2nd black and white one. Let's plan on getting together next weekend! Maybe for dinner on Saturday or lunch on Sunday? What works best for you? I know you're in the middle of trying to pack and everything so if we need to postpone an actual meal we can. Just let me know!
