Happy Thanksgiving!

We are busy getting ready take the turkey on the road to gather on Thanksgiving at our son Daniel and DIL Jess's home this year. Since their baby is due two days after Thanksgiving, the family is taking the meal to their house so we can all be together. Who knows?- we'll see if the little one holds out till then:) Little Sam will be welcoming his new little brother into the world soon!

Our blessings are too many to count. God has blessed us beyond measure with a loving family, good health, warm homes, good food, wonderful church families, and dear friends. We have three new family members so far this year. Back in March, little Sophia was born to Ben and Lisa. In August, Tim married our sweet new DIL Brooke, and three weeks later my sister Melissa married her wonderful husband Jeff.

We'll miss being with Ben, Lisa, and sweet Sophia this week, but look forward to Christmas when they will be here with us. Love you guys!

So as we all look around us and count our blessings, I am also thankful to live in this country whose forefathers made it a priority to stop and give thanks. I hope that you and your family will have a wonderful time together this holiday.

Blessings to you and yours:)

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Can't wait to hear about the new blessing to your family. Hoping he will wait till the meal is done for his arrival.
We got our newest blessing Nov 7th and he is doing well.
Blessing to you.

Congratulations on Elijah! I love that name. Two dear couples that are friends of ours named their little baby boys Elijah too. He is adorable:)
