Chapter 39- Thankful

We have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. When you have a child (or 2!) your holidays seem to mean more, much more!
Thanksgiving is all about family, friends, fun, and turkey! Try and enjoy all of these things as the holidays fly by so very fast.
My 10 "Thankful's"
1 wonderful husband
2 precious baby girls (6 weeks old)
3 day weekends
4 loving parents (now grandparents)
5 wonderful siblings (2 sisters, 2 brother in laws, and 1 sister in law)
6 week old twins
7 hours of combined sleep :)
8 months of a healthy pregnancy
9 months till the summer (I can't wait for the girls to splash in the pool)
10 kisses (or more) on the forehead of each baby makes life more enjoyable.
God has blessed Michael and I with two of the most precious gifts this holiday season. I was talking with Michael about how easy it would be to feed just one baby, diaper one baby, snuggle one baby, put to sleep one baby, the list could go on.  We just laughed at the thought of that! Then it made me realize that if that were the case, we wouldn't have one of our girls.  The thought of not having one of their sweet faces doesn't seem right. Therefore, double the work is worth it!  As I sit here and look at both of them, I couldn't feel more blessed.
Thank you Lord for the blessing of Hadley and Layton.  You knew we could do this before we did... we'll keep truckin' along. Keep your hand upon us as we transition from Michael and Me to Michael plus 3.

Thank God in everything no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks, for this is the will of God for you who are in Christ Jesus .
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Enjoy your holidays with all of your "Thankfuls".
