Happy Thanksgiving!

I can't believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving!!!! I swear these years are getting shorter each year! It could be that life is just more busy with two lil ones in the house haha! I wouldn't want it any other way though.

This year I am thankful for my wonderful family and friends. I love you all!

To Matt, I couldn't have asked for a sweeter, more caring husband and our girls are a daily reminder of how special our relationship really is. Thank you so much for all your help with the girls, for those days when you surprise me with a clean house and for those moments when you just know that I'm having an off day, but that don't stop you from pulling me in for a hug. You are my Godsend and I love you so much!

To my girls, you have truly made my life complete. You hear and read about how special motherhood is and they are right! I always knew that I wanted to be a mother, but wasn't so sure if that was a possibility. What people sometimes forget, including myself, is that ALL things are possible when God is involved. My prayers were answered not only once but twice!!! I LOVE waking up each morning and seeing your smiling faces. P.S. Even though we seem cranky those mornings you decide to sneak in our bed, because it's our duty to create independent children, just know deep down I cherish those cuddly nights.

Alaina, you are mommy's princess who makes days brighter with all your creative dress-up outfits and reasonings for why things should be this way or that. Sometimes you catch me watching you talk away to your toys and ask me, "What mommy?" and I just smile and say nothing. Well, those moments just know that I am thanking God for blessing me with such a wonderful life, especially the two beautiful and loving girls that call me mommy. I see so much of myself in you and will do everything in my power to make sure you know how very special you are. I love you!

My Bella boo, how do I love you too! I've never met a 2 year old who can read people like you do. No matter where we go, you create a crowd around your infectious personality. I love watching you take it all in. I see those wheels turning and just like that you come up with a way to make someone laugh or smile, like your daddy. You definately have spunk and craziness in there too, but what better way to keep things interesting than with your silly doings. One day you may read back on this and just know, that everytime I put you in time-out or correct you, deep down all I want to do is crack up and sometimes I do lol!

To the rest of my family and to all of my friends, thank you for every sweet or kind thing you may have done for me or my family. No matter what it was. Maybe it was advice giving, or commenting something nice on my facebook, listening to me vent, coming to a party, txting a friendly hello, for watching the girls, giving them a call to see how their day was, sending them "just because" cards or gifts or maybe it was those hugs and kisses that they love so much. Whatever it may have been, thank you so much for making our lives that much more special. We appreciate everything! Much love to you all and Have a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
