Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

quick post

I have been a terrible blogger.  I am tired, big, uncomfortable, and a little overwhelmed with life right now so blogging has fallen by the waist side.  I hate that because this is my scrapbook and I love keeping up with our day to day lives but chasing 2 little ones while growing another little one is a tough job.  The kidney is unfortunately getting worse so it looks like the next couple weeks will be a grin and bear it kind of month.  Something else I hate because this is my favorite time of year.  I LOVE Christmas...decorating, baking, crafting, wrapping, worshipping, and I feel so crummy that I just don't feel like doing those things.  My OB put me on some pain meds to help with the kidney pain so hoping I will have some relief from the pain and can enjoy this time with my family.  Please hear me out...I am thrilled baby sister is doing well and we are getting so close to meeting her.  I really am thrilled but being pregnant 4 times in 5 years is tough work.  Just keeping it real!

So I plan on doing a much longer post of our wonderful Thanksgiving with family and the other happenings around the Spence home but here is a little tease.

Reading at night with daddy...definitely one of our favorite activities. Untitled
Loving on my littlest
Watching Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Watching the music before the Thanksgiving Parade begins. #memoriesofmychildhood
Spending time with some of our favorite people...our cousins. Precious cousins. Thankful for family. Untitled

Be back soon with more recaps.
