our thanksgiving

This year, we hosted our first family Thanksgiving in New Jersey. Nick's family flew in on Sunday night and our house was full of people, food, and laughter for the week. We had 9 people total and though sleeping quarters were tight, we made it work! This was our first Thanksgiving without Nick's dad which made the holiday very bittersweet. On one hand, we are so thankful for all the blessings that we have and the chance to be together. It's still so hard to imagine life without him and his absence is felt even more strongly on big family gatherings. 
The kids' cousins kept Hayden and Charlotte busy, happy, and entertained. It was sweet to see them running around the house, playing together, making up their own silly dinner conversation, and cuddling together for movie nights on the couch. I put together a quick video of our Thanksgiving week, which I'll share below! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! XOXO
