Much to be Thankful for

I, like most people, absolutely love the holiday season. I love Thanksgiving and the anticipation of Christmas. i love fall, winter, and all the smells. I love family time, the yummy food, and the music. This year is different than any other year with me being on bed rest. I've had lots of down time to think of how blessed I am. It was hard not being able to help cook the Thanksgiving feast, or take pictures of everything, or play with Elijah. But I realized in a new way what an incredible family I married into. If you haven't meet Caleb's family you are seriously missing out! Anyone who meets them instantly falls in love and can't wait to see them again. I'm so lucky that I get to see them all the time and call them family.

They took such good care of Elijah I think he likes them better than me now. In fact, last night he woke up not knowing where he was and cried for his Yiayia, They spoiled me, making sure I stayed laying down, bringing me food, drinks, and hanging out with me so I wouldn't be bored. I felt guilty by how well they took care of me. Thank you guys so much!

I started making a list of what I'm thankful for this season. It's just a start, but I thought I would share.

My Savior, who is completely in control of my life and that nothing surprises Him.
Family!
Delicious food.
Church.
Friends
Christmas music.
That I'm almost done all my Christmas shopping.
Cars and airplanes.
The best husband I could ask for. I could go on forever on just how thankful I am for him!
A doctor I Love.
Good books.
Christmas lights.
Peppermint soap.
Elijah's smile.
Our new camera, (our friends gave us their amazing camera and lenses! Once I'm out of bed I'll take some pictures and put them up.)
Snow.
My doctors appointment tomorrow! Hoping for good news.
