my little turkey... :)

I've got so much to be thankful for.

We started Thanksgiving day off watching the Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade. Spicer helped Jared do a few things and I finished making her little turkey dress. After our easy going morning we headed over to my papa's house to feast with our family. My papa's wife is such a good cook. Spicer had lots of fun with another little boy that was there too. Then, we came home. I carried Spicer in to lay her down for nap. On my way to do this, I twisted my ankle and fell. It was just awful! As soon as i totally hit the ground I heard Spicer's head hit. Ugh! I just knew we were headed to the E.R. I did not know how bad it would be. It's crazy how fast things like that can happen. Jared saw about her because i could not get up. I finally was able to get up with a sprained ankle and a couple of hurting knees... We kept our eyes on miss beth to make sure we didn't need to get to the hospital. She was fine, just had a huge bump on her head! I can not tell you how many praises and thanksgivings I sang to God that day for his protection over her. I just don't know what i would have done if it had been worse. My meme told me that we already had prayers stored up for her protection at that time! I loved that! :) She's such a Godly woman and prayer warrior. In that moment I could care less about myself, my only concern was Spicer and her well being. More and more I'm learning how deep a mother's love runs. And more and more I'm realizing how deep my Heavenly Father's love runs for me, for us. Thank you Jesus!

so very, very thankful--

  1. Awwwww Kerri I am sure you felt so awful too! Things like that are scary. I once picked Bryceton up from a friend in his car seat and he wasn't buckled and I was carrying (thankfully low to the ground) and he just fell right out on the ground. I was sooooo scared but he was okay just a little scared not even a bruise. Kids are resilient at times. I am very sorry this happened and very grateful that she was okay and I hope you are too!!!
