"If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy"
B and I took the 2 hour trip down to Richfield this Thanksgiving, and Olivia met her great grandma for the first time. Pam and Jack were kind enough to host the big feast at their house and we enjoyed spending time with family all day!
The food was soooo delicious and it felt so nice to relax. There were many helping hands that offered to hold Olivia, so we truly did get to relax, and she was such a doll pretty much the whole time. She was a very well behaved little lady, catching some shut eye here and there and smiling the whole time in between! Only little winces to tell mom that she was hungry for her own thanksgiving feast.

and I made her a little headband to match
Seeing Carly and Micah's new baby, Cash, made me miss having such a teeny baby. I guess they are actually about the same size, but she's changed so much since the newborn stage. It made my heart ache a little to realize that my girl's growing up (she can already roll over you know).

I was spoiled getting to spend the ENTIRE day with my girl and she just cooed and smiled and talked to me when I could get my face right up to hers. She makes me feel so loved. I hope I do the same for her.

On the drive up, we decided to count our blessing and name them out loud. It took the entire 2 hours, and I'll bet we could keep going. We are so thankful for our charmed lives, and need days like this to forget our silly problems and complaints, to just relax and realize we are so blessed.
This is one of the busiest, most stressful times in our lives so far, but yet we are so happy. I have my best friend by my side forever, and he loves me! What more could I ask for...but I've been given so much more than just that one amazing blessing, including a beautiful, sweet, healthy baby. Those two blessings alone are enough to fill my heart with overflowing gratitude to my Heavenly Father.
