So much to be thankful for.

It really has been a month since my last post.
I didn't think it was that long,
but hopefully these next photos will help everyone forget all about my generally incompetent blogging.


I am pleased to announce the arrival of our sweet grandson,
Cooper Matthew Carter.
 
He graced the world with his presence in the early morning of September 22nd.
He was (and still is) the epitome of perfection. 

He is such a good baby.
He hardly cries and sleeps very well. 

Here he is today.
2 months have flown by. 




Love isn't a big enough word to describe what we feel for him.
:)



With this being the month of Thanksgiving celebrations around the country, I have been pondering the many things that I am thankful for. I have made an extra effort lately to thank my Heavenly Father for all of my blessings.....those that I recognize and also those I  miss.

I am blessed with.....

 a wonderful family that just increased by one-
and that it is eternal.

a husband that loves and supports his family.

wonderful, smart, kind and  healthy children.

a job that lets me love other peoples children.

friends that give way more than they receive.

extended family that care for and love my children.

the knowledge I have of my Heavenly Father and my Savior.

our comfortable home.

my life.


Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
