Zachary's First Thanksgiving
Zachary's first Thanksgiving has come and gone and it was truly a time for us to be thankful for being so blessed to have Zachary with us. It is amazing how a child can change your perspective on life and what matters and what you are really thankful for. I realize now that the Vikings winning on Sunday is not something I should really be thankful for! Though I would be lying if I said it did not give me a little pleasure. :)
It is incredible to see the way Zachary has impacted our families as well. As Ty's family lives here in the Twin Cities, we usually see them on the weekends. They simply cannot get enough time with Zachary and playfully fight over who gets to hold Zachary and who gets to feed him. It really is entertaining to watch!
With Christmas just around the corner, we are gearing up and getting the house decorated for the family party we are hosting on Christmas Day. It seems like it was just summer and now Christmas is just around the corner. Where did the time go? Beth's mom just sent us a Christmas stocking with Zachary's name on it so now the whole family has stocking hanging over the fireplace. We cannot wait for Christmas to get here now so we can start some new traditions with Zachary!
