So Thankful

2016 has been a fun year for our family.  Our happy times far outweighed the sad times and we're feeling sentimental as we think back on all the blessings from this year.  Our most memorable moment was probably becoming a family of four.

In 2016 we're thankful for:

Living in Indiana
Fletcher joining our family
Buying & updating our new house
Kevin's job going well in year 2
Two healthy cats
Making new friends
Fun times with friends
Making memories with our family 
What's at the top of your thankful list for this year? 

 We've loved our first fall in our house and the kids have had a blast with all of the leaves in our backyard.  They've spent hours raking, jumping, collecting, sweeping and trying to eat the leaves.  Free fun for everyone :)  They'll be sad when the last few piles get raked up, but I'm guessing there'll be snow to play with in the not so distant future.  

We enjoyed working through our long Fall Family Fun list for the last three months and apparently forgot to do anything related to apples, landscaping or date nights.  Whoops!

I gathered my favorite leaf pictures from this Fall for this post.
I'm thankful for all of these sweet memories and would love to frame a few of these to decorate with every fall from now on.

 Sweet chunky Fletcher loved the leaves!
I think I'll make him wear this little hat with ears every day.

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!!
Thank you for reading and following along with my blog.  I'm thankful for YOU!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday with family or friends.
I'm taking a Thanksgiving break for the rest of the week
 and will be back with a fun recipe round up post on Monday.
Eat some rolls, mashed potatoes and pie for me!!

  4. This is such a sweet post. I'm thankful for your blog to give me cute ideas, amazing recipes, and to see what great things your family is doing. Your family has had a big year with lots of big things. I know y'all were the most excited for Fletcher who seems like such a happy baby with the prettiest eyes. It is going to be so wild seeing him change so much in the coming year. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
