"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving at my Aunt Kim & Uncle Scott's house in Ocala is like having Thanksgiving with Martha Stewart! My Aunt is a wonderful hostess, her house is decorated beautifully and the food is AMAZING!
She had a fall colored leaf with everyone's name on it marking where their place setting was. Carson was excited when he found his place at the big table! 
My Aunt and Uncle had been up since 3am (or earlier!) cooking the turkey. It was so juicy and so yummy! 
It took several family members to cut it all up and of course a few hands were reaching in to try a piece! 
Our family getting ready for the blessing and meal...
Carson got to say our Thanksgiving prayer this year. He did such a good job. What a big boy!
Dig in!
After such a wonderful meal, we played outside and enjoyed the perfect fall weather! 
Tanner went down for a nap (such an easy child who will sleep wherever!) and then some of us went for a much needed walk around their neighborhood. Carson and Tanner loved the animals, and Carson started off walking Snickers.
Then it was bike riding time! 
While desserts and the hot chocolate bar were being prepared, my cousins set up the Wii for Carson to play. He LOVED it!
TT woke up and headed straight for the kitty. He loved petting Jackson!
Here are a few snapshots of our family on our fun Thanksgiving day!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! We have lots to be thankful for this year, especially our sweet boys, family and friends. We hope you all had a wonderful day too!
