Happy Thanksgiving

My Thanksgiving began when Bryn crawled into bed with me early this morning. That's not an unusual way to start my day. However, then she said "my stomach hurts." Then I found out why as she began to throw up everywhere. It could have been a bad day. After all Thanksgiving is just as much about eating as it is giving thanks. However, Jadyn and Katelyn had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving with our family at large and I had a nice time with Bryn at home. The best part of my day was doing thank you cards with her. She helped put the postage stamps on and handed me envelopes so I could stamp with our address stamp. Jessica's dad came by later to drop off traditional Thanksgiving stuff for Bryn and I which I ate and Bryn slept instead. This Thanksgiving may not have been about eating for Bryn and I but it's pretty cool that ended up being a day of giving thanks.

One year Jess and I handed out Thanksgiving dinners at Mission Arlington (a place for the down-and-out for those of you not from here). It was a lot of fun because it involved our whole family got to do it.

I was glad that you were able to "flip" the day to make it a happy one. Jacque says that sometimes little distractions in the midst of a sad time diverts our pain for awhile. I know Bryn tossing her cookies wasn't exactly in the plan but it was a divergence. Alone time with Bryn doesn't come very often.

I hope you enjoyed the "left overs." Next year, you can be the first one through the line to get the first fruits.

Jadyn was a blessing for all of us yesterday. We love you, Jake!

Your huge extended family!
