Words simply cannot express how thankful I am for my little family of three. The Lord is good!

O taste and see that the Lord is good...
Psalms 34:8

You might notice something new - The Little One is teething and has the beginnings of four teeth coming through the gums! What a little trooper. Correction: three teeth, I thought the fourth one was coming in too, but just felt in his mouth today (11/28) and it's puffy, but still smooth as a baby's.... gums.

Today we celebrated Thanksgiving with The Little One for the first time. (Side note: I love these two handsome guys so much!)

For dinner we had Parisian salad, cranberry sauce, Martinelli's sparkling apple cider, garlic mashed potatoes, roast turkey breast, maple butter baked yams, and gravy. We truly do live in a land of plenty.

Dessert was crust-less pumpkin pie served in goblets, with whipped cream of course.

I am one happy momma. Being a mother is indescribably special. I am so thankful to be The Mr.'s wife and now I'm a momma too - what more could I ask for?!

....O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee forever.
Psalm 30:12
