So, it's been quite a while. I haven't made blogging a priority because at the end of the day, when everyone is finally asleep, I just can't give one more ounce of energy to anything other than drinking a Dr. Pepper and watching whatever sitcom is my current guilty pleasure. I know I'm not the only one that feels that way, right? From their very waking moment to the moment they fall asleep with me held prisoner in the bedroom, I promise to you that there are not three consecutive minutes where my attention is not needed by one to four people (not to mention the dog). So I'm laid up on the couch today, sick and watching a constant stream of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and I thought, "what better time could there be to dust off the old blog?"
So I'm going to do a couple of catch up posts, mostly consisting of pictures because let's be honest, this was a long time ago and I can't even remember what I had for breakfast this morning, so the chance of me remembering noteworthy details of our lives nine months ago is slim. Which is one reason I'm back. There is this nagging voice inside of me, telling me that I Will regret it if I don't continue to record the important and unimportant happenings of this little family. And I know it's true.
So, we'll pick up where we left off: Thanksgiving of last year. We spent this holiday in McKinney with my family and had suuuuch a good time. It seems like it had been such a long time since we had all been together for Thanksgiving, which made it that much sweeter. We did everything that makes Thanksgiving so great: ate amazing food, played lots of cards and dominoes, did a puzzle, shopped at midnight on Black Friday, watched Football, went to the movies, and gave many thanks for the incredible blessings we enjoy.
My greatest blessings
The whole crew
It was also Katelyn's 16th birthday, so she (of course) got the traditional red velvet cake with roses on top.
