We have a lot to be thankful for no matter what the past year has brought our way!
This is a banner my friend, Emmalie made. She owns the scrapbook store here in Waco. The banner says "THANKS". It is a little hard to read it in the picture, but I just love it in person!
Here is THE biggest blessing in our lives! Our little Pumpkin! Not one day goes by that I do not think God for entrusting her to us. What an honor. She brings us so much joy!
And I can't leave out this wonderful man either! He has taught me so much and he helps me to be a better person. I have watched him have such a quiet strength over the last couple of years and I so admire that quality in him. I am am so thankful for Flint and I love him to death! And of course, our four-legged babies. This is Sophie in the picture. She has been in my life for 10 years. She and Katie, who was Flint's puppy when we got married, have brought so much joy to our lives. They are so loyal and dear to us and I don't want to imagine life without them! We attempted to get a whole family photo but as you can see, we were unsuccessful. Five faces looking at the camera is too many!!!
Cilla had a BIG time with her Nana and her Poppa while they were in Waco for Thanksgiving. They are so good to us and I can't tell them enough how much we appreciate them.
Cilla will not sit still long enough to have her picture made these days. She is one busy little girl!
Thanks for coming to Waco, mom and dad. I know it is a long trip, but we loved having you guys and are so thankful for your willingness to help us around here and to love on Baby Cilla!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, Cilla is excited about her first Christmas. I have lots more pictures of our Thanksgiving week. I will post them in the next couple of days! Hope ya'll had a good Thanksgiving!

Cilla is the best dressed little girl EVER, complete with accessories! Seriously, she's adorable in every photo. Where do you shop?

P.S. I secretly (well not anymore) want to be a party planner too!
