Giving Thanks

This year, Eric and I spent Thanksgiving in Indiana. As usual, it was a fun-filled weekend. We got in early Thursday morning, and headed to Erin and Mike's place in Fishers. Mike spent the whole morning/afternoon preparing our Thanksgiving dinner, and Eric and I got to act like kids with Lexi and Parker:

The next day, Eric met Matt for lunch, and I got to spend lunch and the afternoon with my mother-in-law. She took me to a local diner, and afterwards I went to her workplace to help her finish some last minute errands and to spend some time with the residents. That evening, Eric and I linked up with the Pfeiffers to brave the cold for Indianapolis' annual lighting of the tree ceremony:


The following Saturday, we linked up with everyone to have pizza before the girls (Mom, Erin, Lexi and myself) split off to catch "Cats" the musical, and the boys went to the arcades and played miniature golf:

The weekend ended with a football game that is never to be spoken of ever again. At least Lucas Oil Stadium was amazing. 

As always, I am extremely thankful for my family and their unconditional love and support. I'm thankful for a husband who loves me and challenges me. I'm thankful for friends, old and new, who stick by me through thick and thin. I'm thankful for a healthy little beagle that we thought we might've lost a year ago. It may only be acknowledged every once in a while, but I am truly thankful for these blessings every day.
