Our Thanksgiving, as aforementioned was joyful but anti-climatic.
After Jon got home from work, we had a bonfire and learned about the Thanksgiving story.
We all were in particularly jovial moods. So, even when our dog ate our cookies (that were out to be the base of our s'mores). Besides Daddy. “He was so mad his head almost popped off!” Which was a funny overstatement. When our wads of mini marshmallows that had melted in a chunk slipped off into the fire and we didn’t get to eat them, The Not-So-Littles just laughed
And the rain started. Not-So-Little-J raised her hands in the air and sincerely yelled, “Best Thanksgiving Ever!” A complete miracle.
On Friday, we had our Thanksgiving party. The power was out and came back on…
When it did, this little one was so delighted by the light bulbs. He would yell with delight when we switched the lights.
And all of these faces are a few for which we are very thankful.
Thank the Lord for my dear friend, Yeshi. She is expecting and we are thrilled!
Discovering this little toy, a stuffed horse that moves on it’s own!
I know, go ahead and scream he’s so cute.

And volleyball, disturbed only be the biting ants.

We have so many reasons to be thankful. God is so good in giving us community.
