Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! This is the girls second Thanksgiving but it's the first one home. So much has happened since last year at this time. I have reflected back on last Thanksgiving and am so grateful for the progress and the milestones that Haley and Rachel have made since that time. Thomas and I are so grateful for our beautiful daughters. They have brought so much joy and happiness to us. We cherish them and love them more than anything.  We enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday with Grandma and Grandpa Benedict (my parents) in Austin. We had a nice Thanksgiving meal and enjoyed time together as a family.  The girls also enjoyed Grandma's backyard sitting in the leaves.  The weather was warm until a cold front came through mid-day.  We got some good pictures outside before it got cold.  It was a wonderful Thanksgiving all together as a family.  We are so blessed and grateful!

  4. Hello Stansels, I'm the micropreemie twin mom who met Thomas and the wee ones at the mall a couple months ago. I wanted to share this link with you, as it may provide good Christmas gift ideas in case anyone has asked you what to give the girls. One that's not on the list that I highly recommend (if you have room in your house) is the Jump-o-lene.

  5. I loved the photos and the girls bibs. They just get cuter and cuter. The pictures of them in the leaves are adorable as well!!!
