Gather (40 weeks)

Last night we had a small get together with friends to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Today we are getting together with more friends to continue the celebration. This Thanksgiving I am grateful for a lot of things, mostly my friends and my family. I am so thankful for two loving parents who showed me what it means to love and support a family (and laugh all the way to Idaho). I'm thankful for a sister who is always a phone call away and for her quick wit and humor that makes her so easy to love. I'm thankful for those 4 crazy girls (Janelle, Jennilee, Karly, and Ashley) who were with me in my prime of life. I am still so thankful for those wild days of jumping off cliffs, dancing till we dropped and talking all through the night. I am thankful for the new friends I have made in the past year that have made living so far away from home seem much easier. Today, I am especially thankful for my adorable husband who picks me up when I'm down and makes everything better when nothing seems to be going right. I'm thankful for the way he forgives me easily, makes me feel like the coolest kid on the block and can make me laugh with just one funny look. He is truly the best friend I could have ever asked for. I am so thankful for the little chicken nugget that is about to make his debut into the world. Yesterday was actually my due date and we were hoping he would be here by now. But, we are thankful to know that everyday is a day closer to meeting him... because we are so ready.

And there's a little peek into my after party... totally exhausted. This is me about the beg my husband to pick me up and carry me to my bed because I am too tired to walk. I have to take my hat off to the man - he cooked, cleaned and even made that cute little streamer hanging on our wall. SO glad to have him around.
