We have so much to be thankful for this year! We are blessed beyond measure and can not wait for our newest blessing to make her arrival--hopefully very soon.

We celebrated Thanksgiving this year with Troy's family. Grandma and Grandpa arrived on Wednesday afternoon and Todd and Georgia got here about 1 on turkey day.

It was for the most part a relaxing day with good food and time with family and friends. Ashley and the boys joined us for our meal (unfortunately Patrick was sick and couldn't join us). This year instead of frying a turkey or even baking a whole turkey we decided to smoke two turkey breasts and a ham. I have to say that Troy did an awesome job with this and we all loved it! I loved that it was easier to handle and clean up :) The rest of our meal was also very tasty and everyone did manage to save room for dessert, of course.

I didn't take very many pictures throughout the day but we did manage to get a family shot of the three of us before I changed into my much more comfortable sweatpants (I live in them these days).
On Friday night after eating an early dinner of leftovers we went down to Troy's office to see the Christmas lights. The trees are so fun to look at and Luke really enjoyed seeing the 5 cranes covered in lights this year as well.
