Happy (and sad!) Thanksgiving!!!!

We had a great time today at Nanny and Poppy's house celebrating Thanksgiving! Nicholas got to sleep over their house the night before, so he had already been there awhile before the rest of us got there. So, needless to say, he was bored, which caused some meltdowns throughout the night! (see picture!) :) Anyway, the babies did well........thanks to our friend, Brandi, we utilized the booster seats and the little ones sat right at the table with us............And since they are finally eating off plates by themselves with forks, I was able to eat my own dinner! :) Boy, and was it YUMMY!!!!!!!!!
On the way home from Nanny and Poppy's house, I asked Lexi and Nicholas what they were thankful for this year. BOTH kids mentioned being thankful for their families (Lexi even named EACH PERSON she was thankful for!) and how much they appreciate what they have. Nicholas made it a point to be thankful for Aunt Gloria-thought that was soooo cute!!!! :)
So, I guess it is my turn. I am thankful for ALL of my children. I am thankful that they are all healthy and happy (most of the time!) And I am ever so thankful that I am able to be a mother to my adopted children, my singleton Nicholas, and my amazing quadruplets. Boy, has it been a ride! :)
