Lots to be thankful for

Yesterday we had an early Thanksgiving celebration with my family because my sister is going to be out of town at her roommate's house for the actual Thanksgiving (insert sad face here). But she was home this weekend so we made an event of it!

In honor of Thanksgiving, 12 things I am thankful for.

1. I'm thankful for Steve. Steve has brought so much to our family and for my mom and I just love him. And I love that he cuts the turkey and does other manly things like that. Sammy was watching Steve, and the turkey, very closely. So cute. Sammy is definitely Steve's dog. He loves Steve. He will do anything if Steve is there. It's pretty cute.

2. I'm thankful for sweet potatoes with marshmallows. This is definitely my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal.

3. I'm thankful for a wonderful meal and family to eat it with. And the laughter that occurs around our table.

4. I'm thankful for candles. They light a room in a very special way. Carly designed this lovely little centerpiece. Nice work Sis.

5. I'm thankful for these two!!

5. I'm thankful for a huge yard for Emma do her running and exploring in. I think she ran around the pool 18 times. And took a drink between each lap.

6. I'm thankful for Casey and Sammy, and play buddies for Emma. She convinced them both to play with her! They were running so fast that the pictures were all blurry. But man was it cute. And so fun for Emma to have play buddies. Sure makes us want to take another trip to Petco to find a pet for Emma.

7. I'm thankful for our little family :)

8. I'm thankful for my sister. I love how she is so sweet with animals. She really really loves dogs. And likewise, the dogs really really love her. She is going to be a great vet one day.

9. I'm thankful for Sammy's sweet disposition and common pose...

10. I'm thankful for my girls. I love these girls!!

11. I'm thankful for my husband. And that when I point the camera towards him (as I do quite frequently), he smiles. He is so handsome.

12. I'm thankful for Casey. Our precious yellow lab and Carly's baby.

Thanks for the laughs, and the love, family. I love you guys so so much. Happy Thanksgiving.
