This is definitely my favorite time of the year but I think it's safe to say my favorite day of the year is the day after Thanksgiving. We always go cut down our tree with my family with the morning, eat handmade donuts from the tree farm and then spend the afternoon at my parents' house. The girls usually go to a store or two in the afternoon and we spend the evening decorating my parents' tree and eating pizza.
This day last year ended up being one of the worst and scariest days I've ever had, as it was the day we thought that we were losing our sweet baby after just hearing her heart beat two days before. Chris and I rushed to the doctor's office and we were both sure we had lost our baby. Those two hours were probably the worst two hours of my life.
It was the biggest relief when we saw our baby's heartbeat, and I was put on bedrest for the next few weeks as we prayed and waiting for my hemorrhage to go away and our baby to keep growing. And she did.
What a different day this was this year! We got to go get our tree and bring our healthy baby girl with us. We got to decorate my parents tree and Addilyn fell asleep watching. The next morning the three of us decorated our own tree and Addilyn loved looking at (well really trying to eat) each ornament.
This day was a reminder that I will never know what time will look like in the future. What a year will bring, what God has planned and a reminder that He is faithful.
