1 Thessalonians 5:18 " ... give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."

So here it is Thanksgiving Eve, where did the year go?  My babies have grown and changed so much in a year.  Yesterday was Murphy's last day of school before the holiday, so being the sappy mother that I am I ordered iced turkey cookies for his class to enjoy (sorry for the sugar overload, Michele)...Clay dropped him off because drama queen completely loses her cool when we have to leave Murphy at school.  So yes, to avoid "the situation" daddy takes Murphy to school when he can.
Let me preface this next part by saying...I sent the camera with Clay so he could get a few quick pics of our guy at his first thanksgiving celebration at school.
Meet Michele.   She is Murphy's teacher and instead of letting Clay snap a few shots for one crazy mom- she kept my camera all day and took pictures of everything they did yesterday (yes, she is God's perfect answer to my plea for an incredible teacher for my joy). We are so thankful for God providing Michele, Ella and Diane.   So in light of tomorrow's holiday I thought I would share some of the pictures of a "day in the life" of Murphy. 
You will quickly see how many things I have to be thankful for...
The smile on my Murphy's face is enough to make my day every time I see it, not to mention the ways he has thrived in Michele's class.
I am thankful for getting to spend the morning with mini-me, tink and getting to tell her over and over how much I love her and I love spending time with her.
I am thankful for our families who support us in raising these little ones, for their influences and encouragement.
I am thankful for special friends who listen to me and REMIND me to be thankful for all of these things.
Yesterday when our microwave all but caught on fire, I kind of laughed and maybe temporarily lost my mind when I told Clay "we dont really have to have a microwave, do we?"
We are truly blessed, God is so good to us.  We are amazed time and time again at his provisions for us and the way He orchestrates things so perfectly.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Pop came to see us last weekend I think he read 100000000000 books!
