We traveled to Memphis for Thanksgiving this year. We couldn't last year because I was very very pregnant and so we just had to go this year! I am so thankful for so many things this year: my Savior who passionately pursues me daily regardless of how I treat Him, my husband who has put up with a lot and who still loves me the way Christ loves the church, my precious little baby dolls, our church and church family, our extended family, our wonderful house, the fact that I don't have to work, our cars and the fact that we have two, the fact that Adelyn is doing so much better with her "problems" and actually sleeping and sooooo much more!!!! God has incredibly blessed me and may I never forget it!!!

We got in Wednesday night visited with Adam's parents and then went and spent the night at my parent's house. The next day we went to my grandparent's house for Thanksgiving lunch. Adelyn spent a lot of the day like this. She has a cold (poor baby!) and was just a little fussy. :(

Annabelle had a ball getting attention from everyone!

This is my sweet grandmother, Mimi. She has MS and she is in a wheelchair now but she has the best attitude of anyone I've ever met. She definitely has always had an eternal perspective on life!!

Annabelle ate her Thanksgiving lunch on Gepaw's lap! She loved every minute of it (and so did I!) Adelyn was taking her nap and so I actually ate Thanksgiving lunch without having to feed someone else too!!

I got pictures of everyone with food in their mouth! hahaha! It was not really on purpose but it's funny none the less!

My beautiful step mom!

My Uncle Charlie was being a goof as usual. My family is always sooo entertaining in such a great way!!

Sweet Mimi feel asleep in her chair right after this picture. We were laughing about a story about the things they used to give baby's to make them sleep and then we looked at Mimi and she had fallen asleep! It was a "had to be there" story but it was funny if you were there. ha!

Adam and I had such a great time!

and so did Annabelle. She spent so much time talking to her cousin Luke. He was so sweet to her!

Adam tried his first ever pumpkin pie and he liked it! I am so proud of him for venturing out more these days!!

Oh and Annabelle got LOTS of dessert from GePaw. She kept saying, "more whip cream" and of course he gave it to her!

I thought the centerpiece was just gorgeous!!

GiGi GePaw were so very glad we came and spent Thanksgiving with them in Memphis.

After we left my grandparents house we went to Adam's aunt and uncle's house to visit with his family. Poor Annabelle had not had a nap in two days and she fell asleep for about 20 minutes in the car and when she got out she was a little mess. She had had a long trip the day before and she had played her heart out and she was just worn out!! I felt so bad for her!!

After a while, she warmed up to everyone and Marmie read her some books

and she played and played some more!

Marmie and PapaDaddy were soooo glad to see their girls.

After that we went back to my parents to get ready for bed and go to sleep! We were all exhausted!

What a wonderful Thanksgiving with family!!!

My grandfather, Papa, read Psalm 103 before we had Thanksgiving lunch. I wanted to post it here to remember. What a wonderful Psalm!!

Psalm 103

1 Praise the LORD, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, my soul,

and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The LORD works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.

7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel:
8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
and remember to obey his precepts.

19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Praise the LORD, you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding,
who obey his word.
21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts,
you his servants who do his will.
22 Praise the LORD, all his works
everywhere in his dominion.

Praise the LORD, my soul.
