Thanksgiving 2012

Can you believe I only got one picture from the entire day of Thanksgiving this year?  I type that as though I am great and taking pictures of all of the special events in our family's life, but I'm actually horrible.  We'll take what we can get right?

The Griffin Boys - Marty, Jordan, and Gray (Josh was there earlier)

The week before Thanksgiving, Alyson (mother in-law) threw the original plans for Thanksgiving at her house out the window.  Unfortunately she fell in her backyard chasing Addison around and did some damage to her hands and face.  She was unable to use her right hand at all for two weeks, so the Thanksgiving plans soon thereafter got to moved to our house.  

So with everyone's assistance, we were able to spread out the duties of cooking and gather up enough food for the family to feast on.  Uncle Gray did an awesome job smoking meats.  Our little family was able to enjoy his company Wednesday and Thursday.  The girls love having Uncle Gray around.  

We a great time for us to remember what we are thankful for.  Our lives are filled with all of the hustle and bustle of daily to dos.  Get everyone ready in the morning, go to work, cook supper, bathe the kids,  kids bedtime, and then chores or just taking time to spend with your spouse.  There are days that you fill as though your day is not going to end or it didn't go just as planned, but as we look back we realize that ever minute in our lives makes us who we are.  Our decisions throughout the year are what makes our lives, "our lives."  What a wonderful life I have and I feel more and more blessed every year.  God continues to bless our little family and may I be thankful for all of his blessings throughout the entire year.  For He sent His Son so that I may accept his grace and have eternal life.  What more could I ask for.  Nothing.  Nothing at all.  God bless you and your family.
