The greatest of which being family. Our little Ivan Alan is now coming up on 2 weeks old, and we already cannot imagine our family without him. Also, Grandma and Grandpa Christensen have been here to visit and help out after baby came for about a week and a half. We were very fortunate to have them here for Thanksgiving dinner. This was our first major family centered holiday outside of Utah, and it was wonderful to still be able celebrate with family.
Other blessings on our "Thankful Tree" include (in no particular order):
Jesus, our ward here in Albany, soccer balls (Ellie: "because they give you strength and energy"), chairs (Chris), bacon, birds, nature, nursery, our home, drawing pictures, all our cousins, the swing set, Halloween, glasses...
