What a lucky boy!

What a surprise for Robbie to receive a Thanksgiving gift this past week!  My Aunt Sherry and Uncle Jim live in Cincinnati with their 2 girls, my sweet cousins Courtney and Caroline.  They sent Robbie 2 books about the meaning of Thanksgiving, which I love.  It is one of my favorite holidays because of how important it is to be thankful and how much God has blessed us, and I hope that Rob and I are able to pass down a spirit of gratefulness and appreciation to Robbie.  And what better way to introduce the idea than through kids books!?

Don't be fooled by the raspberries - Robbie is very excited about his present!


Really enjoying digging through the tissue paper - but no, Robbie, that's not the gift.  Keep going!


Ooooh, I know what this is - I love books!
(Note the serious face...)

Grandma jumps right in and reads both books to Robbie, who is completely mesmerized by the sweet stories and cute pictures.


Thanks so much for my new books Aunt Sherry, Uncle Jim, Courtney and Caroline!  You are so thoughtful and I think of you all the time when mommy and I spend time reading at home - lots of my books are from you!  I love you.
