Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's a few pictures from Thanksgiving and our short list of what we're thankful for....
We're so thankful for little Matthew's safe arrival!
Here he is in his bib that Grandma Pearson sent us that says "Baby's First Thanksgiving"!
I couldn't get any smiles but he's such a good boy with a very sweet disposition and we are so very lucky to have him in our family.
The Monday before Thanksgiving he weighed in at 11 lbs. 3 oz. and is 22 3/8 inches long (he's almost doubled his weight in 2 months!) This kind of growth has never happened to my other kids so it's kind of weird:) He's growing sooo fast and changing so much!
He really likes to "coo" more and gives smiles that melt your heart:)
We're so thankful for family, friends, and the Gospel!

Here we are gathered around the Thanksgiving table with Grandma and Grandpa Murphy and 2 Elders from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We had such a wonderful day visiting, eating yummy food, singing, and expressing our gratitude for the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that's been restored here upon the earth.

How lucky we are to know that God loves us and cares enough for us to send his only begotten son to show us how to live, to Atone for our sins, and to give us the wonderful Plan of Salvation so that we may return to live with our Father in Heaven as an eternal family.

We're so thankful for a wonderful DADDY!
He played a ton with the kids over the break! He's such a wonderful person who always thinks of others, works hard, is giving of his time and talents, and loves his family!

We're thankful for our children!

We're sooooo blessed to have wonderful kids who are kind, thoughtful, and caring towards others.

We're so thankful for sleep!

Here's a rare photo of grandma sleeping while holding little slumbering Matthew! (please don't hate me but I thought this was a sweet picture!)
Grandma Murphy worked so hard to put together a GREAT thanksgiving meal and to take care of all of us over the holiday week.
Mommy got lots of sleep over the break since everyone let me sleep in every morning and took care of Matthew!
Thanks Grandma!!!

We're so thankful for Grandparents.

Here's Grandma Murphy snuggling me and giving lots of loves on my first Thanksgiving.

We have such wonderful grandparents!
