Ivan and I were in AZ for Thanksgiving and about 2 weeks around the holiday.  Nick’s sister and family moved down to Phoenix this summer so it was fun to visit them and the cousins had fun playing together.  While we were there we visited the zoo, Christmas lights on Natal Circle in Mesa, train park and lots of time swimming and playing outside with cars, trucks and the trampoline. Nick and his Dad joined the family for the holiday.  We had fun being together! So thankful that we have family and places to travel for all kinds of adventures.

So thankful for beautiful day for a walk and bicycle ride. Ivan did about 2 miles!

I am so thankful for Ivan’s imagination. He is here going fishing for fish for dinner!

I am so grateful for the community of moms that I share life with. Together we help lift each other up during rough patches of motherhood and celebrate the joys! Today I enjoyed watching Ivan and a friend play really well together, sharing toys.

I am so blessed and grateful for the daddy that Nick is to Ivan!

So thankful that we have such awesome friends who love to watch Ivan and he loves them that we can get a date night!

I love that Ivan is so social and friendly. We have so many friends that we enjoy playing with each day. Today I’m thankful for my normal social little boy!
