At the end of the day it's all about FAMILY

He fell asleep while coloring Santa Clause a picture :)

You just can't help but love this kid, seriously...seriously look at that mug!!!

* This Thanksgiving was especially meaningful to me this year. I feel that we have so much to be thankful for and I surely felt that all day long!!! Man I was a boob all day, so sorry to those who had to hang out with me I just couldn't help but cry. Especially once we sat down and discussed all that we had to be thankful for. I love all of my family and I love my husband. We missed Sean alot but were able to talk with him on the phone and also read a very touching letter he had wrote to be read with all of us family gathered together. These past few months have not been easy being separated from each other, having to make serious decisions with out Sean by my side, but these past 4 months have also been some of the greatest months because even with having thousands of miles between us, we have grown so strong together and I can honestly say that our marriage has never been so strong. Sean has grown so much spiritually and emotionally. He is such a great human being and I am stronger for having him as my husband. It is easy to go day by day and get caught up in all of the chaos, but for me this holiday season has been an eye opener and I thank my Heavenly Father each and every morning and night for blessing me with all that I have been given, all that I have faced, and all that I am going to face. I know I am blessed and loved by many, but the love from Sean and also the love I have from Christ is priceless.

Porter is SUCH a cutie!! Seriously - the curls just kill me!
I'm so glad you guys had a great Thanksgiving! I know exactly what you mean about realizing how amazing and important having a family is. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to KNOW what I'm missing when Gerritt's gone, and to really appreciate all that he does for us, as I'm sure you feel the same!
We're almost there! This is going to be the BEST Christmas ever! :)
