This Thanksgiving wasn’t a traditional one, but it’s by far my favorite to date. 
My family made the trip to Dallas and also brought two special visitors. My Nanny and Granddad came with mom and dad and got to meet their great granddaughter! 

The past few years I have either hosted Thanksgiving or helped prepare the feast, but with a newborn we decided to go a different route. This year we catered Thanksgiving dinner and it may have been the best decision yet!! It was so nice to just spend time with the family and not worry about cooking prep or cleanup! I highly recommend giving it a try if you have a crazy schedule, life, or just don’t want the stress! 

After all of the celebrating on Thursday, Tyler and I got to talking and without a doubt this is the most “Thankful” Thanksgiving to date. I was holding our sweet baby, rocking her to sleep in the nursery and just was overwhelmed with how blessed we really are. I probably talk about that a lot lately, but I sincerely mean it. I’m so thankful for my family, my husband and our precious baby girl that arrived just in time to celebrate with us. 

These are the days I never want to forget. Although we are so sleepy we can hardly stand and some most days we wonder what we are actually doing... life is perfect! I am so thrilled because my favorite photographer in Dallas (who took our amazing maternity pics) reached out and we set up an in home newborn session. 

 Becca came to visit us when Ella Jane was only nine days old and captured some of the sweetest images of both her and our family! 
I know I will treasure these pictures forever and I couldn’t wait to share a few favorites with y’all. 
ps had to save a few favorites for the Christmas card...

We have been enjoying life as a family of three so much. Literally dreading tomorrow when Tyler goes back to work... but so thankful for our time together!
