It is so very humbling to look back on all the ways
Christ has stretched us as individuals and grown us as a family this year!!
We have so very much to be thankful for!!!
Often we share this special holiday with extended family or friends.
This year we spent the day as a family of five.
Our newest treasure had many questions about
what Thanksgiving is, what we will do, and of course...
what will we eat:)
He is not terribly fond of trying new foods
so we decided to fill him up with some comfort foods for breakfast.
(fried rice and toyu (salty fish cooked in oil))
I accomplished the baking yesterday.
(Homemade bread, Pumpkin Pie, and Lemon Sponge Pie
(takes me back to my Pennsylvania roots and reminds me of home)
Today my hubby made the turkey AND the rest of the sides!
He is so very fabulous and blesses me tremendously!!!
The day was spent
thanking the Lord for our many blessings,
making thankful crafts,
eating, eating, eating,
watching the parade on tv,
playing board games,
did I mention eating??!!??
And when it was time to go back for leftovers this evening,
our sweet boy asked if he could go back to his fish and rice:)
We all giggled until his fish fell into the cooling apple crisp...
life is never dull around here,
and we would never have it any other way!!!!
I pray that all of you in bloggy land had a
blessed, Christ-centered holiday!
From our family to yours...HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
