Today we celebrate Thanksgiving and I thought what better day to post our family picture for October? These are the people I love. I am so thankful for a wonderful husband and three healthy children to love on every day. I saw this on Facebook yesterday and I thought it was perfect:
I have what I need, I have more than I deserve. If I were to get what I deserve I would not even have what I need.
So today I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for the many blessings I have received. I am so unworthy, yet He gave me these people to love and care for and I couldn’t ask for more! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
(I’m sad the color is not nearly as great on the web as it looks on my computer, but you get the idea!)
It’s been one of those ‘awesome, super cozy, happy, warm fuzzy feelings kinda days’ today. Rain on the windows, baby sleeping, one daughter playing and the other in school, country music in the background and hot chocolate beside me as I edit. I <3 it!
I’m thankful for my calendar reminding me to post this, or I would have forgotten. Taken early September at the Beamsville Fair. We didn’t have much time and the kids wanted to play and people kept getting in the way…but it really inspired me to possibly have a session with our family at the fair next year! I love all the colors and the lights and the fun!!!
We went on vacation as a family the first week of August- heading up to Chesley Lake Camp with my Mum’s entire side of the family. It’s always a good time, and this year was even better now that we had a new cottage. As long as I can remember, we shared a cottage with a bunch of aunts, uncles, and cousins, and then moved to a little tiny shack cottage by the water. We loved the location, but the cottage left a LOT to be desired! The owners rebuilt in the same spot, and the new cottage is to.die.for. We felt like we were in a resort the whole time, and there was plenty of room for our family of 14! I meant to get a family picture all week long, but we were SO relaxed, and having so much fun, that we just never found the time. We did get this quick shot at Harrison Park on our way home.
I had one Saturday this month where I hadn’t booked anything, so we took advantage and went up to Niagara Falls for the afternoon. Pretty much the entire time was spent waiting in line to get on the Maid of the Mist. I had never been on before, and neither had Greg, so we were excited! It was an hour long wait. baking in the sun, with kids climbing over us, and people glaring at our huge stroller but we enjoyed the ride and the kids LOVED it! Of course, I had never seen the falls so close before, and it blew me away! God’s creation is so amazing!
