We are very blessed

"No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jusus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Happy Thanksgiving! We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving this year with our friends and neighbors from Eagle River. Thea's husband Mike is deployed to Afghanistan until February, but she and her daughter Lily, and her sister, Brita joined us at our house for lunch today. Lily wore her special dress she has been saving all year until Thanksgiving, and she entertained Duke
by reading to him from her Barbie coloring book while the adults played Catchphrase. We all came up with the top 10 things we were thankful for this year (we all have much more than 10!), we had a wonderful lunch, doing some major damage to a 17lb turkey, which I am proud to say I didn't burn :) Brant and I finished the night off by watching Home Alone, our yearly tradition and trying to feed Duke the giblets, which he is not too fond of :)

Tomorrow, we are going to get our Christmas tree and start decorating! Only 29 more days until Christmas :) We hope everyone had a nice holiday today!
