Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope all my friends and family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We never know how ours is going to go, due to the hubs job, so we are last minute planners. So this year we enjoyed a wonderful meal with some friends, it was a blessing to be a part of their family Thanksgiving meal this year! Lots of fun, good food, laughter, and blessed friendships!

Sad to put away the Thanksgiving tree, as I love what Thanksgiving it all about. We can keep that spirit of thanksgiving each and everyday by being thankful for the blessings we are are given from above, and sometimes it is the little things that count the most! Now I am even more excited to decorate our Christmas tree, put up the manager, start our Christmas devotions, and count-down! The Christmas shopping is done, finished that earlier in the week, this lady does not do Black Friday, that thought of it causes a bit of anxiety. I just love Amazon, order and deliver to your door, what is better than that!? Today the kiddo's are getting all dressed up in their Christmas outfits my parents got them for Christmas pictures.

We enjoyed a Thanksgiving break from school, just opting to do some spelling and writing with a Thanksgiving theme. Aidan had his Thanksgiving manners meals at preschool on Monday. We will enjoy the last couple days of this week, as next week picks up with back to school and lots of activities on our calendar to attend.

Here are a few pics of our Thanksgiving week:

"Because I’ve learned something about myself over the years: my heart is whack. It meditates on stuff and creates scenarios and lingers on fears that steal the life Christ died to give me. And it needs constant Divine supervision and intervention." http://tooverflowing.com/whats-stealing-from-you/

"Jesus is not just a thought to be understood or a verse to be memorized, but a living, breathing, vibrant, loving, personal God who lives and walks amongst us right in our homes each day. Our homes must become a true and vibrant picture of the living God, of the marvelous depth and beauty of Jesus." http://www.sallyclarkson.com/focusing-on-him-in-our-hearts-and-homes/
