The turkey was carved and consumed. Ty and I had completed the drive back to our home and were sitting on the floor, playing with our beautiful twin baby boys. My parents joined us a short while later; they were planning to stay overnight. They took off their shoes and got down to the serious business of playing with their grandchildren on the rug.

My father, ever sentimental, got this dreamy look in his eye.

"Whoever would have guessed that we'd be so lucky," he wondered aloud. "I mean, one would have been a tremendous blessing, but we got two! We have so much to be thankful for."

The babies gurgled and cooed. I smiled. "Awww, Dad. I know exactly what you mean."

He leaned back and sighed. "Imagine that. TWO parking spaces that are legal for tomorrow's alternate!"

HAHAHAHAHA! Perfect. You, about to get all mushy when BAM - not so much what you thought....been there done that. TOO cute. (And hey, two parking spots are PHENOM and totally worth getting excited for!)

a worthy blessing to be thankful for! and just in case there's any consideration that this has nothing to do with the twins, it's even more time to spend with them not having to move the car in the morning.

Well, the holidays ARE a time for counting one's blessings. I personally am thankful that Amoxicillin stains come out relatively easily and also that breastfeeding means I don't have to spend extra time with airport security trying to get formula through.
