We have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We are so blessed. We have had a crazy last couple weeks and it has made us super conscious of being thankful for what we have. It would take me days to list everything I'm thankful for, but my short list is the following: My marriage and husband, our beautiful kids and their health, our family, our dogs, our house and jobs, and our happiness.
Thanksgiving was spent at my parents' house with lots of family, including my brother-in-law and sister-in-law (who we have never spent a Thanksgiving with). We had such a great weekend, even though Mr. Howard had to work a lot (he worked Black Friday).
Auntie Rebecca, who adores kids, offered to keep a baby each night for two nights. Aiden spent the night the first night and then Izzy the second night. It was so nice to only have two kids and I'm sure it was nice for them to get a little one-on-one time. One of the mornings, we went out to Mimi's with Mr. Howard's brother and sister-in-law and we had one less baby. It was insane how easy it made it with only two! Who knew what a difference one kid makes? =) It was our first time being away from Aiden and Isabelle. Connor has had a couple overnight's with my mom and sister, but the twins hadn't yet.
These pictures are a compilation of the entire weekend.
It's always a crazy day for my mom, who does all the delicious cooking! We are so thankful she hosts us each year.

I love the bottom three. Aiden and I were chillaxing. Grandpa and Izzy were petting Nova. And Connor wanted to snuggle me (when does that ever happen anymore?!?).
