Giving Thanks

We were so blessed to spend Thanksgiving with my brother, Kevin, his wife, Nikai, and my Dad. It was the first holiday we have spent together in about 8 years. Nikai and I had a wonderful time cooking, and we all enjoyed the feast. On Friday we took the boys to Locomotive Park downtown. Everything was lit up beautifully. With the Christmas music playing, it was the perfect kick-off to the Christmas season. It was stinkin' cold, so we were thankful for the HUGE gas fire in the middle of the park. Caleb has not stopped talking about the "Choo-Choo Train Park" and how he wants to take Ra-Raff there to show him the lights, too. In this collection of pictures you'll find Noah and Jonah helping "Auntie Kai" make rolls, Uncle Kevin disrupting story time ;o), our Thanksgiving gathering, and some from Locomotive Park. I can't say enough about what a blessing it was to spend this time with my family. Our tree is now up, and the house is well underway to being Christmas ready. It should be a delightful month of preparing, and celebrating the birth of our Savior.

I'm so glad you were able to have a family gathering for Thanksgiving - it sounds like everyone had fun! We're on our way to being "Christmas ready" too. Our new place is a lot smaller than the old house, but it's warmer and a lot closer to civilization. :) God is good...
I'm so excited about Christmas this year - and we just found out Drew is safely out of Iraq - so we might even get to see him around the holiday!! :) After all the horrible things he saw, I'm so relieved that he came home without any serious injuries...

I cannot believe how grown up the boys look in the Thanksgiving pictures! Little mini men. Time is flying by so quickly. We are so blessed that we get to see them grow!
