Thankful--Nov. 23

Family--the whole lot of them!

Wednesday started out pretty rocky with baby girl having a 103 fever all night long. First thing Wed. morning, we made a doctor's appt. She had been fighting a cold for about two weeks. Just as we thought she was finally getting better, her temp spiked and she was FUSSY! Turned out to be an ear infection.

As soon as we were done at the doctor, we headed to Mom and Dad's house where the extended fam (that was in town) was going to be gathering for a night together.

K was pretty clingy and fussy, but I'm glad all of that side of the family got to meet and spend some time with her. For once she wasn't the smallest baby around.

We all got to meet sweet Hudson (her probably 4th cousin, I can't keep up). The last time we saw him, he was in his mom's belly.

Check out the Little People the kids are playing with. Those were mine. You can't get them like that anymore. I think they may now be considered a choking hazard, but my kids will play with them. They were much loved toys.

I think this is the first time we have all gotten together since several babies were born. It was fun to see everyone as a parent now. That is one of the beautiful things about family. We've seen each other in every stage of life. I'm excited for our kids to grow up in such a loving albeit crazy family.
