Thanksgiving has always been one of, if not my very favorite holiday. There's no gift-buying pressure, everyone has a grateful heart, you get together with your favorite family, and I get my mama's ahhh-mazing yeast rolls that she only makes during the holidays. There are few things more fun than sitting down at the table with my parents, hubby, sister and her family and this year, adding our own seat for the children's table. Even though my mom has given up getting out the fine china in lieu of paper plates, she still breaks out the silverware and it just feels special. Caroline is obviously going to be too young to really pay much attention to anything this holiday season, expect maybe the lights on the Christmas tree when it goes up, but still, getting to experience things through the brand new eyes of your child is a special gift and I can't wait for it all.
It's a hope of mine to instill a thankful heart in Caroline as early as possible. There are so many things in life to be thankful for and she is definitely the top of my list, along with the rest of my family, they really are the best!
And finally, I give you our little bird. Caroline's first Halloween holiday costume was a little pink owl, although my husband swears it was a turkey. Speaking of Halloween, it's a great time to get next year's costume since they're all half off!One last picture...Here's Caroline with her favorite cousins right before trick-or-treat :) Cinderella, an FBI agent and little Miss Minnie Mouse.
