I have so much to be thankful for in my life,
and it was especially meaningful this week to embrace all that I've been blessed with.
We started the week out with an invitation to the city courthouse to finalize the adoption of
our sweet little baby. What a blessing he is in our lives. We love him so much!
Two days later we were able to celebrate Thanksgiving with our dearest friends. Hosting
this year, again, was a much less stressful day (I would host any day though!) But, with a much
more low-key atmosphere and intimate setting, it wasn't the hectic, crazy day like last year
(although I seriously loved last year and had so much fun!) This year was just a perfect day
and we had an amazing time!
I can't even go into how incredibly poor we are, so the table was definitely minimalist, to say the
least. Scraping up things around the house, plus the $.99 ceramic bread pans from Michaels, I have
to say the table turned out okay. . .even a little charming :) The night was topped off with delicious
food (I think my favorite was the artisan bread dressing my friend Diane made), tee-pee making
(with kits from The Paper Source) and homemade indian headdresses for the kids.
We definitely had the cutest little indians at our dinner!
It's official! This little guy finally gets a birth certificate. . .wahoo!!
Pure joy leaving the courthouse, Tuesday afternoon.
