Belated Happy Thanksgiving

We truly enjoyed our Thanksgiving Day yesterday and hope that yours was wonderful too!  Though these five babies are keeping us on our toes and constantly challenging us, they are a perfect reminder and example of how blessed we are.  God has given us so much for which to be thankful!

"Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens." (James 1:17)

What an amazing thing to know that the one true God who created all the grandeur in the skies above us and on the earth around us also deems to love and bless us with so many good things when we have no merit at all!  He is good and we are thankful!

  1. What a wonderful day of thanksgiving your family had! Thank you for the photos! With 4 babies home there must have been very little "fighting" over whose turn it was to hold a baby!! 8) So nice to see both of your families!

    1. It is a cannula, but he is still on CPAP. It's kind of confusing, since the other hospital used different equipment that you would have seen in other pictures.

  6. Oh, what joy, your pictures brighten my day. Strength to all, and so proud of big brother. If all children were blessed with parents like you, what a beautiful world it would be. Prayers for strength from Florida, feel our arms wrapped around you. Our God reigns.

  7. How blessed you are. I've been reading your blog since the babies were born, but don't often comment. I still love the pumpkin caps although it looks as if Will's will not fit much longer. Thank you for keeping us updated and providing pictures and videos. I'm quite familiar with mission work and our church has connections with JAARS. We will continue to pray for each of you, that your bodies stay renewed with enough sleep and that volunteers are provided for every need.

  8. Happy belated Thanksgiving! How exciting that the babies are doing so well. Looks like the pumpkin hats are getting to little for them. :) I'd love to volunteer to help take care of them all, but MN is just too far of a drive. I hope that you have had some luck in finding more help.

  9. That picture of Gracie cracks me up. I keep looking at it just to giggle. So cute!

    Seth is looking amazing! His little face seems to have come down a lot since he was on the steroids.

    So many things to be thankful for!

  10. I just want to say I am not actually 250 pounds as my robe makes me appear. I was cold on the porch. It was definitely in the 60s at that point (I know, you Northerners must think what a wimp I am). :) And it was my birthday, too, this year on Thanksgiving, so it was my party and I could dress like I wanted to. :) Thank you all for your kind words and everything else you are doing and for praying! Love, Carrie

    1. Carrie, I've followed the blog of your incredible journey and the picture did give me pause, because you look amazing!!! U think we all knew it was the robe :) still praying for all of you, if I wasn't in New England with 3 little ones I'd take a shift!
      Ps- I wear a sweatshirt at 60 degrees too ;)
