We started our Thanksgiving off at my Grandparents' house (like always). I was in charge of the creamed corn this year and because it was the first time I have ever made creamed corn I accidentally doubled and a half the recipe. OOOPPPSSS oh was really good just enough to feed the army though!!! anyways we spent most of our day at their house. Drew and his cousin, Kaleb, had a blast playing in the backyard and looking through the fence. We got a few photo ops in and we found this REALLY OLD wagon that I thought would be a good prop for a pic or 2. It is probably one of my favorites of him. We took our family pictures and our group picture. towards 5 we headed to Nana and Pop's house where Drew played with the dogs and played with a spoon and can.... he LOVES to make noise and dance.

On a more SERIOUS NOTE...

When Thanksgiving gets near and the commercials and TV shows start in on the season, you always get the what am I thankful for question.... I have SOOOO much I am thankful for...

I am thankful for a brave young lady and man who picked me and Ken to raise their son as our own...through their decision we became The Farley Family
I am thankful for Ken who is my cheese to my macaroni AKA my BEST FRIEND... I love him so

I am thankful for Camp Paw Paw and his assistant Mia who watch Drew while we work... You couldn't ask for a better place as a "Day Care"

I am thankful for my in-laws because without them my dream never would have come true

I am thankful for my friends who are always there when I need a helping hand or a good gossip buddy :)

I am thankful for my Grandparents Stewart and Freeman who have good health and it brings me such joy to share Drew with them

I am thankful for my dogs because they are great snuggle buddies and they make Drew laugh everyday when they wrestle (YES my son wrestles the dogs daily)... that is why they got a BIG bone on Thanksgiving...they deserve it... we love you Dori and Merriweather!!!

I am thankful for such a great family to share in the joy that Drew brings to our lives!!! On my side and Ken's we have such wonderful family members who love to share in all of Drew's milestones and we love to share in all of theirs!!!

To wrap this up I have so much to be thankful for and I feel truly blessed this holiday season!!!
