Happy Thanksgiving!

We had such a fun week in South Carolina and a wonderful Thanksgiving! We hope you did, too. We spent the first few days of the week hanging out at Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Gene's house with Mommy and Daddy. Most of the grown-ups worked during the days so we played with Mommy and took walks. Basically we did the usual but in a different state. Then on Wednesday Granny and Grandpa arrived. We had such a fun time hanging out with them and all of the other relatives, too. We had a big dinner for Thanksgiving and got to wear our special bibs that Sandy sent us. Notice that Garet is really warming up to Grandpa! We got to try ice cream and you can see how much we enjoyed it! Kitt is really getting good at standing up and Garet is even starting to take steps along the couch.

Mommy has been talking to us some about how special this Thanksgiving was. You might remember that last Thanksgiving, Mommy and Daddy drove to South Carolina for a big dinner but we were still in the NICU. If you're curious you can read all about it here. This time last year we weighed 8 pounds combined! Mommy was thinking about how she could hardly get through the meal last year without crying and this year we were crawling all over the place. Truly we have so much to be thankful for! We are thankful for each and every one of you who has asked about us, worried about us, prayed for us, loved us, encouraged our parents and who have believed in us all along. Thank you for being a part of our journey.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Angels! I am so glad to see that you had a nice holiday; your Uncle Mark and I were thinking about you the entire day!
    The next time you talk to her, please tell your cousin Sandy that she has impeccable taste - I LOVE the bibs she picked out for you. And the way you girls are growing, you'll be able to eat turkey yourselves in no time!
    Kitten, I had to do a double-take when I saw the adorable picture of you smiling on the rocking horse; in that picture, you look just like your Mommy when she was a baby!!!!! And Garet, that's what you call "warming up" to Grandpa?!?! C'mon - reach for him and give him a biiiigggg hug! He really is great! :) And were you scared on Friday afternoon? Was your Daddy doing a lot of unncesseary yelling at the TV at some football team that didn't deserve to win?
    Please remember how thankful I am for you and what you mean to this family. I can't WAIT to celebrate the next major holiday with you.
    I love you tons and tons and tons and tons,
    Aunt Kristen
