Thankful Thursday

I joke that Hudson has fourth child problems - his baby book is lacking information, I haven't been as diligent with professional portraits, and his moments have not been as clearly laid out as his brother's first 2 years.

But you know what . . . it's the season of life. It's not that life has changed drastically, I mean for us it seems like a normal progression, I have just reached a season where I have to allocate my time carefully because most days there is more life than hours. And at the end of those days where I used to spend time writing down those memories, I find myself worn out in a good way . . . and the writing just doesn't seem appealing . . . right now I would rather read than write . . .

It's moments like the one below sandwiched in between conference calls and data analysis that do take my energy throughout the day . . . And I couldn't be more thankful for it . . . My assistant and I rock our work days!

And I can't mention thankfulness without one of the main reasons my assistant is so awesome during the work days . . .

The giant bears I have for sitters . . . and of course, Grandma! And all of his fourth child problems are trumped by that fourth child benefit - he not only spends his day at home with Mom . . . he has his Nanny all day too!

Its the random moments when I become overwhelmed with gratitude and love because I look at these people that are important to pen for memory . . .

And eventually I will get back to writing about the rest . . .

Girl Time

While Evan is down for the count after the tonsil/adenoid removal, we are trying to spend some special time with the girls.

On Saturday Jay and the girls headed to the historic theater in Gallatin for a fun Daddy/Daughter movie, Secret Life of Pets.

For Sunday the girls and I had lunch and hit up the American Girl store to spend some gift cards :)

December In Photos

December was full of all things that make a perfect holiday season . . . We had a week of Grandparents Days at school, a Christmas parade, lots of lights, gingerbread houses, baking for gifts and fun, and lots of family around to enjoy it all . . . And we wrapped it up with a fantastic NYE to bring in 2017!

Happy Thanksgiving

It was a relatively quiet year for us on Thanksgiving - but it was a great time visiting with the family we were blessed enough to have with us. We had the usual menu and the traditions of parades and football . . . A little excitement was added in when I turned on the oven not realizing there was stuff in it - but the smell of burnt plastic is pretty much gone now :)
While we were out getting our groceries for the week, we ran into Santa and had a quick visit!

School Fun

I went to the school to have lunch with Evan aka Brave Buffalo for the family holiday lunch.
He earned those feathers for knowing all of his personal information - phone number, address, etc. 
He melted my heart when he walked up and thanked me for coming . . . And then I walked the main art gallery and had a couple proud parent moments. 2 of our 3 kiddos had art displayed - I have never been in the school without at least one of our awesome kids having art displayed. This time it was Sam and Evan.
We headed back to the school that night for Sam's Veteran's Day performance. She did a great job singing her heart out on the front row!

And though Hudson didn't have school stuff this week, he made his mark on the week by eating 10 pieces of gum that one of his sisters left out . . . there was a good hour of projectile vomitting in which we discovered that he didn't actually chew any of the pieces! So that was fun minus the fact that he for some reason thinks he loves gum now!
