of all of the things that were done on this thanksgiving, picture taking did not fall high on that list. it was such a great day and phillippe and i were not even thinking about getting the cameras out. which i'm really bummed about.
it was a little more low-key than usual. we were several family members short for my dad's side of the family for lunch. but it was one of those times were we could have just stayed and stayed. we really enjoyed the conversations and trips down memory lane.
we hosted our first thanksgiving at our house this year. phillippe's mom and sister's family came over.
again, we just enjoyed the time together. and found out some great news....i'm going to be an aunt again!! defiantly something to be thankful for. :)
we just had a great time being together with everyone. there were several moments where phillippe and i wished we were surrounded by even more people on that day. that we were able to bless someone who doesn't have a place to go by offering them our company and our home. it seems a shame to have so much food for not some many people and there are those that go without. something to think about for next year, i guess...
we were thankful this year for our new home. each new thing that comes and goes allows us to become more and more thankful that we were able to make this step. one that we never thought would come. phillippe and i love having people in our house. we love for people to come over and feel welcomed and relaxed and comfortable. we need to utilize our home more for others. that is something we both realized.
