Welcome home

We have been in the Alabama woods for a week... a wonderful family thanksgiving break. We have been welcomed home by our garden with a lovely carrot bouquet ---

...and by our chickens with a six egg day! We have six chickens but they don't each lay eggs every single day, especially not during the darker time of year.... so the getting an egg from each one on the same day is unusual.

Can you tell that I have now joined instagram? Now I too can have cool looking pictures of everyday things ;)
speaking of cool pictures, here is one my sister-in-law took with her phone while my brother-in-law was doing a family photo shoot for us... Even though the kids were being almost as difficult as a two year old and a four year old can be, we still have more great photos than I know what to do with! We are so proud to have t2photography as our in house photographers!

We have much to be thankful for... Even after a doozy of a year, our hearts are full of thankfulness... The good so far outweighs the bad!

Look at my boy! He is morphing from a little preschooler into a boyish big boy. He has started to eat like a bottomless pit... I'm beginning to imagine how hard it will be to keep enough food in the house for him when he is in high school! I am waiting for him to shoot up several inches overnight and grow out of half of his winter clothes. He is holding his pencil correctly and learning about bullies and girls who aren't ready to be loved...all the lessons of pre-K. And the boy noises have increased. Don't know if I'm really ready for it... The goofy sputtery giggles and so many more crashes and explosions---constantly! Growing up without the constant noise of brothers has left me little prepared for this;) But, I am soaking up all the sweet snuggling and kisses.., I know they can't last too much longer.
