Thanksgiving Ramblings...21 Weeks

Happy Thanksgiving!  It's finally here.  I am sitting on the couch with my husband and Penny drinking my morning coffee while watching Macy's Thanksgiving Parade just thinking about how we will have our little guy here with us this time next year.  And he will be almost 7 months old!  How crazy, unexpected, and exciting is life?  Tim Tebow said it best on twitter this morning: "What am I thankful for?  Everything."  Thank you Lord for all of your blessings on me and my family:)

Favorite part of the parade...the Peanut floats:)

Speaking of Macy's...we were just there at Christmas last year!

Bad glare on our turkey:/

A sweet Thanksgiving gift in the mail from my friend Samantha:)  Aries onsie for baby boy, New Christmas Cookbook (she knows me well!) and
she also got me the Thankful shirt I'm wearing in this week's pic too.  So sweet.

Happy Thanksgiving from Penny!  
She really loves Thanksgiving. 
She always has to have the perfect outfit to celebrate and loves leftover treats and our Black Friday trip.
  Penny is thankful for:  
Purina's National Dog Show, 
anything edible, 
Gina the giraffe, 
covers to sleep under, 
her marshmallow bed,
 and last but not least, 
her pets (aka Cade and Cassidy).

 Well, I am hoping the rumor about turkey making you sleepy is NOT true because we are heading to Knoxville for Black Friday!  Hoping to get some Christmas gifts checked off of our list and possibly some things for the nursery:)  Eeepppp!  So Excited!

Well little guy and I are going to go gobble up some turkey & dressing!
Happy Thanksgiving once agian!
