We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!
Three little boys who have never eaten Turkey breast, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and croissants, gobbled them up faster than we could grind them. Only Noah of those three can "chew" a little.
Just about every food we feed the 3 new boys, from egg salad to wild rice, is eaten quickly and happily. They have never enjoyed so much food in their precious little lives of 7,7 and 9 years. They enjoy tasting everything we give them!
We Thank God that we are the ones who get to share these kinds of blessings with the boys. Simple blessings we so often take for granted.
We Thank God that we are their family. We will NEVER take that for granted! We will never take for granted that God gave these precious boys to us!
Tom and I feed them.
I take the youngest two. Julius is starting to put random bites in his mouth. Julius and Pauly can eat bites now, but continue to swallow before chewing out of habit. They are only 5 so we're still working on it. Pauly with his autism does not like to "touch" food, and only accepts food on a spoon. He is not able to get food from the bowl to his mouth yet on his own. It takes me longer to feed because I am working on transitioning them to eat more on their own.
The 3 new love bugs have only been home 2 months. They get a break. :o) We just feed and love on them. :o) (Way too much fun!!) They have their little surgeries coming up~ that will be enough for them, for now! No hurries for new skills.
So much to be Thankful for. And that is just a tiny little glimpse into our day.
We didn't cook anything from scratch so we could spend more time with each other. I loved that the grocery stores were open so we could get things as we needed more! :o)
Everyone was asleep by 9 p.m.!! Even MA and SP.
Of course by 1 a.m. it was a new day for MA and she and I were up the rest of the night..............but what a blessing!
