It has become habit at our house to each take a moment at the dinner table each night to say something we are thankful for. (One of the kids, speaking in a baby voice, usually tells what Ben is thankful for, too!) It is a joyful time as we all take the time to think of all God has done for us. He has certainly blessed us this year!

We have felt especially blessed since Ben arrived almost 7 weeks ago. What a precious little person! During my pregnancy, I was worried about how I was going to care for four children under the age of 6! It seemed overwhelming, but the adjustment has been smooth. Yes, we have an extra person to dress and yes, the noise level has gone up a notch, but otherwise, it hasn't been much different than having three children in the house. Can I dare say four will be easier than three? I'm so thankful Gavin, Maddie, and Owen are willing and cheerful helpers!

May we all be truly thankful in all things! Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I found that adding more children after three was definitely not a problem....once you get past three it didn't seem to make a difference....I guess that's why we ended up w/9! Well, and that's what God's plan was for our family all along! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Your baby could not be any cuter! What adorable big siblings Ben has!

  3. What a beautiful ahve such a lovely family and are so blessed that you have Jesus in everything you are and do. Its obvious!

    Many blessings-

  4. Oh wow, we do have children similar ages! Too funny AND we have the same name (just spelled differently). Your children are all beautiful! I find the adjusting to be the same as you...not much different! Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to visiting you again! :)

  5. wow! that is a gorgeous smilebox... I have never seen that before...beautiful family!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I enjoyed growing up in a house with four kids... I'm sure your children will too!
