Corona Virus Quarantine Day #248/249: Family Photo Time and Thanksgiving: November 25/26, 2020:

I fell asleep last night at 8:30 so I didn’t get to post. But I figured the post I had planned and the post for Thanksgiving could go hand and hand. So here it goes…

First, we got our family photos back this week and they are amazing. Family photo day and I have a love hate relationship. The outfits are always an issue, getting everyone to cooperate…always a crap shoot but…if not for these photo shoots I’m not sure I’d ever be in a picture.

I think all the mom’s out there can relate.

So…here are our favorites from that fun and windy day!

I mean…seriously. This is too much. So glad we took it!

More family photos!

Cooper and our oldest child…this sums up what I said about him earlier. This one melts my heart.

Good LORD I am grateful for these human beings.

If you really have time to kill, Tamalee made a slideshow of all of the pictures. You can view it here. I’ve watched it like 100 times.

As it’s Thanksgiving we have much to be grateful for in our family…mostly, our family. To my husband, who is the most patient and practical person I know but also the most thoughtful, loving and hilarious man I know. We are all lucky to call you ours.

To my mom, who lives in our house and is an integral part of our family…we all love you so much and are so grateful for all that you do. Thank you for always being the example to which I measure myself. You make me a better person everyday.

To our 5 kids. You are our everything. Finley, Ellen, Cooper, Fiona and Fletcher you are amazing, caring, kind, hard working and smart kids. Whatever you do in life, we will be there cheering you on. Thank you (And GOD of course) for giving me the greatest gift I have ever gotten…the gift of being your mom. I live with these 7 people everyday and I’m so grateful. They are my favorites.

In addition to the people in this house we have so many other people and things to be grateful for…like jobs we love where we feel like we can make a difference in people’s lives and people to work with who challenge us and make us better.

For our parents. Bryan and I are both blessed to have been raised by great people who gave us a great start in life. We love you all Ellen, Joe, Dixie and Jim. Thank you for all you have done and do for us still.

For siblings. I get to see my sister almost everyday and we are raising our kids together. That’s a special I couldn’t have ever dreamed of. Our kids are blessed to have 9 cousins on both sides and we are thankful for all the time we get to spend together.

For our players. It is one of the greatest joys to coach and mentor you. It is beautiful to see you all grow into strong, confident young women that go out and create your own amazing families. We love you all!

I could go on and on all day…but I won’t. I pray you all have a beautiful and safe day.

GOD is good.
