Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
We are so richly blessed!
Thank you for all your prayers and unconditional love and support!

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Thy name, O Most High; to declare Thy loving-kindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness by night... For Thou, O Lord, hast made me glad by what Thou hast done, I will sing for joy at the work of Thy hands. How great are Thy works, O Lord! -Psalm 92:1, 4-5

 Grandma Mimi's visit
Grandma Mimi got the kiddos their own little tree with decorations
they had a blast decorating it together and making memories

board games
pottery and painting
talking about life
sharing lots of laughs
and creating lots of memories together
it's always hard to say good bye
thank you for a wonderful visit Grandma Mimi

and I really love a loud and crazy house!

 Operation Christmas Child

we always have so much fun doing these every year.
wish we could do more and wish the boxes were bigger
the kiddos always want to cram too much stuff in there.
Grandma Mimi's last day here today
we have had a fun visit and done lots of fun things together
It's always hard saying goodbye...

 roasted vegetables

I make this dish at least 2 times a week
It all depends what veggies are on sale.
Cut up some squash(any kind)
sweet potatoes and onions
sometimes I'll add peppers if I can get them for cheap.
drizzle with Olive oil
add some salt and pepper
toss to coat
Cook in the oven at 400 for about 25 minutes

 thank you
Just wanted to say thank you to the 3wonderful dentists that worked on our children's teeth while they were at school the other day.
What a great program they offer for families without dental insurance. 
The kiddos are always a little sketchy about going to a new dentist but it was all free and they even used good materials for the sealants and the one filling we had to get. 
I am so thankful for this and we are so blessed. 
Now if they only took husbands...

 thankful books

I started something with kiddos a year ago called thankful books
Every Sunday after church and lunch we sit down and write 5 things we are thankful for. 
They cannot be the same things
they always have to be different
We used to do it daily but I couldn't stay on top of it..
Maybe when we start to homeschool.....that is something we will go back too.

Jeremiah is thankful for the wii...
Have a great weekend!

Blessing Bags
packing  bags of goodies to be delivered to the homeless. we carry some of these in the car because you never know who you will run into and what's going on in their lives.
the kids thoroughly enjoy doing this
 especially meeting the people their blessing
wish we lived closer
they would love to go a few times a week if we could.
we have such great conversations afterward and they always seem to talk about the people they meet
...we truly live a rich life!

“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.”
Isaiah 58:10

Let’s be the hands and feet…
