We are so thankful for dear friends who traveled to the farm to celebrate Thanksgiving with us!
We all enjoyed preparing for our company….and you know my motto….many hands make for light work!
Addie Mae blessed us with not one, but two pumpkin pies!
Blake took a vote, and it was unanimous for ham this year!
We have about three miles of floors….thank you Grant for tackling that big job for me!
Chad was on dish duty – he can put away clean dishes like nobody’s business!
We enjoyed making our yummy traditional Thanksgiving dishes!
These were homemade chocolate peanut butter cups! I may or may not have eaten more than four of them!
Here are the yams before they were “dressed!”
I made a new recipe this year – a wild rice casserole from The Pioneer Woman! It was fabulous! (this was before it was baked!)
I printed some coloring pages to keep the littles busy! They had helped with preparations too!
Soon, the house was full of precious friends….and we were all talking at once trying to catch up! I am not sure any of us were able to finish a whole conversation!
So, so happy to have these newlyweds with us for the day! Aren’t they adorably happy?!!
We love you, dear brothers and sisters in Christ! Thank you SO much for blessing us with your visit!! Can’t wait to see you again! We are holding you to your plan for this coming summer!!!
As we all stood holding hands in a circle before our Thanksgiving meal, and each shared something we were thankful for, I was overwhelmed as I looked around the kitchen. We are so abundantly blessed. I never want to take all that the Lord has blessed us with for granted. He deserves SO MUCH praise!!!
Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving as well!!
P.S. Heading back to the Children’s Hospital in Madison with Eliza on Monday for sedated testing. Please pray with us! For travel mercies. For Eliza, as her sedation is not until noon and she is not allowed to eat or drink before then. For the testing to go as planned. For the IV to be inserted on the very first try. For the sleepy medication to work this time before the IV is inserted. Thank you for your prayers!
