We spent Thanksgiving over my mom and Step-Dads house. It was nice to see my pop-pop and great aunt since I don’t get to see them that often.
Olive was dressed up in a super cute Turkey outfit. Her cousins loved the playing with her and holding her. She was too young to eat any of the turkey dinner, but she did enjoy sitting down and eating her baby butternut squash.
When we got home I got her ready for bed and then read them of our favorite Thanksgiving books to her including “Corduroys Thanksgiving”, “Turkey Time”, “Where is Baby’s Turkey?” And more.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m really big on reading to her. In fact, I have more Children’s books than I know what to do with. That doesn’t stop me from buying more though. I would love to write my own children’s books. That would be a dream come true. I have so many ideas, but just not enough time.
I am very thankful for everything I do have though. There was a time when I was depressed and bitter. A time when Kevin and I didn’t know each other and May 10th (Olive’s birthday) was just another original day. And I used to dream about a life where I felt happy and complete. I dreamed of being a wife and a mother and living in a nice house, having a good job and being surrounded by wonderful, uplifting people. I used to dream about the life I have now. And I’m very grateful and blessed. I’m not saying things are always perfect, but things are a lot better than they used to be. I believe in the power of positive thinking. If you think good thoughts, good things will happen to you!
