Thanksgiving and Santa!

We headed up north to Trent's parents house for Thanksgiving last weekend and had a great time. Trent had to work on turkey day so we got together with family and celebrated on Friday. Saturday we took the kids to the 'Christmas at the end of the road' festival in Winthrop and saw Santa! They usually close the pass over Hwy 20 by Thanksgiving, so Winthrop is literally 'the end of the road' until spring! It was fun watching the kids with Santa and listening to Gav talk to him. He wasn't scared at all, and hopped right into his lap. Teag was a little skeptical and kept looking up to see who was holding her...

We have so much to be thankful for this year that its hard to put into words. I'm feeling so blessed to be able to celebrate the holidays at home with two happy, and healthy kids. Thankful for our wonderful families and friends who have helped us in so many ways- we wouldn't have survived these last 8 1/2 months without you! Thankful for thousands of answered prayers, for wonderful husbands, and for laughs/giggles/screams from our two crazy little babes.

My lack of posting lately is due to our crazy schedule lately! Teag has weekly dr. appts. plus 2 days of physical therapy, 1 session of occupational therapy (eating) and a visit from home health. She also has various appts. for shots, dietician checkups, and trips to the pharmacy! This on top of all the regular things that go along with having a 3 yr. old and a baby make for some busy days! She's doing well though and continues to improve with her physical therapy and eating. Washington state is now officially in 'RSV' season so we got the call for Teag's first shot next week. I'll feel a little better once she's started those and built up some immunity.
Thank you all for checking in on us and for your continued prayers, we're looking forward to a fun Christmas at home!

Here's Teag sitting at Nana's counter like a big girl!

Gav and cousin Garrett out for a ride...

Teag can finally put weight on her legs and stand for a few seconds!

Tell Teags she's AMAZING for standing up like a big girl! Owen won't bear ANY weight in his legs at all. She's a rock star!!
