Happy Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving marked the last week of Thankful Thursdays on the blog for the month of November but since we were out of town enjoying the holiday with family, I decided to wait to post.

Counting blessings over the last week included: opportunity to attend adoption training class; kiddo's fun day with his aunt (which included the Lego store); seeing the kiddo sing with the kids choir in front of church; that the unexpected visit of a stomach bug was brief, spared my husband, and all were healthy in time to travel to Thanksgiving; another year of counting blessing by hanging thankful leaves on the Family Thanksgiving Tree; safe travels and a wonderful visit over the long holiday weekend.

Our family time during Thanksgiving went quickly... Thursday we enjoyed a big Thanksgiving dinner followed by lots of games -- Uno, Othello, Parcheesi, pool, and a very serious Monopoly game.  The next day was Christmas baking day with my mom and sister -- two kinds of cookies, dipped pretzels, oreo truffles, salted nut roll bars, and chex mix.  Saturday we traveled to see more family with another big meal and lots of great time for the cousins to play and snuggle our youngest nieces who change so quickly between visits.

And now as turn the calendar here on the Gravelly Road, we transition to Advent season and prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.
