Grateful, contented, satisfied

It was a very satisfying Thanksgiving indeed. The time spent with our little family cuddling on the couch, watching a movie together, cooking together, and just being made for a perfect day. Time spent with Adam is like a refreshing day at the beach. We are grateful that we get to add another special spirit to our family any day and that she is kicking and nudging all the time.

I am also grateful that I had sunglasses on during the Christmas parade because the tears were flowing. Seeing Caroline's excitement during the parade may have been the most festive thing I will see all season.

We enjoyed being with close friends who are like family for our feast. It's incredible how close we've become to friends out here only after a few months. It's makes the pang of missing family traditions at home not so painful.

I'm glad that you are adjusting so well back there. We miss you but this time will pass quickly - it already has and with SKYPE and calling all the time it makes it seem like you are, like in Provo instead of Concord. I'm happy that you had a good Thanksgiving.

It's great to hear that you had a comfortable holiday. I hoped that being away from "home" wouldn't be depressing. Instead, we found new things to be grateful for--Skype, cell phone service, digital cameras, blogs...what more could we want? Oh, I remember...another GRANDBOO please :0) Countdown time, L'il Pea!!!
