JB and I were heavy into infertility treatments and living in Rochester, Minnesota where JB was attending medical school. We went to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with my Dad's family -- including my Grama Huisman.
JB and I had just suffered another failed IVF attempt. We spent a low-key Thanksgiving with the Ray family while living in Minnesota.
We were now living on Eglin AFB, Florida. We had just gotten word of our adoption of Isaac, and my parents and brother and his new wife had driven up from South Florida to spent the holiday with us.
Thanksgiving at our house included, for the first time ever, one of our children. Isaac was just a few months old. We had dinner with my parents (who had driven up), our friends the Dooleys, and our good friends John and Becky Connors (who were traversing infertility along with us.) I was very pregnant as Elijah "Sidge" was due in January.
JB's parents, his sister Elizabeth (and her husband Grant), and JB's brother Ray (and his wife Gabbi and kids Nate and Grace) joined us for Thanksgiving. We now had two little boys in our family!
Our first time eating TURKEY in TURKEY! We had dinner with some great new friends (Yerrington, Jones, and Stebbins!) I think our friend Erin and the Beaudoins stopped by as well? I had just found I was pregnant with Abigail.
We had a GIANT Thanksgiving outside in our carport with about 30 people in attendance!
We now live in the Azores and I am going through IVF. Shane and Linda flew over from Germany to have Thanksgiving with us and the Seeligers also joined us. Aunt Connie was living with us at the time.
Shane and Linda fly in again for our fourth-straight Thanksgiving together. Grampa and Grama Kit. lived there with us.
Thanksgiving #10 on the Blog! My parents drove up from South Florida and JB's brother, Ray and his family joined us as well for our first of many Tennessee holidays!
I don't have it on the Blog but Ray and Gabbi and family drove over and joined us for the day. Dad and Mom went to visit their daughter Elizabeth.
And here we are today! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
John and Becky are here again! Here are our six children!
