Start Spreading the News

We had such a blessing this year at Thanksgiving.  My ever most generous in-laws offered up their home to host my entire extended family for the festive fun feast.  We were also able to share the news that little BabyC is a boy with everyone in a very special way.  We had a cute little gender reveal cake made by Donut Days Bakery.  It was delicious and quite a fun experience for all. 
We headed over to Don and Karen's Thanksgiving morning to hang out and get appetizers ready.  They had done so much to get there house ready for everything and it was such a wonderful day all around because of them.  We set up and then waited for the Miller family to arrive.  I set out little trees with blue and pink leaves for people to place their vote for which they thought Baby C would be.

There was lots of food, laughs, hugs, and enjoyment of a family blessed far beyond what we could have ever imagined.

 Two happy parents! We absolutely loved this day of celebration and thankfulness!
Elise insisted on helping my Daddy wash the dishes.  She pulled up a stool saying "I hep, I hep."  What a sweetie!
I'm pretty sure Thanksgiving doesn't get much better than this.  I'm so thankful for this amazing family, the ability to share fun times with them, and for our newest little addition to the fam, the blessing of a baby boy.
