Luckily, I remembered that Thanksgiving was coming just in time to get an appropriately themed book from the library to read to Kiddo and buy a turkey before they had all disappeared. Dellie was really excited about all the food we were going to eat ("we have to have cranberries, Mama!") and I thoroughly enjoyed having her actually track with the basics of why we celebrate by stuffing ourselves silly with food we never would eat otherwise.
|And yes, we did bacon-wrap our turkey.|
|We watched football, Dellie taped and colored her very own "rocketship"|
|Post-dinner backyard hockey|
We originally flip flopped between going back to Colorado to visit my family and get away from our world for a bit, but ultimately decided to stay here. And staying home, keeping it small and simple, and spending the time skyping with family and watching football was a really good thing for us. It gave us the chance to actually just stop and be thankful for what God has done for us these past years, and look forward to the good that we believe He has for us. He hasn't done anything except good in our lives these past years, so I think I can believe He has no intentions of changing that pattern anytime soon :)
How was your Thanksgiving?
