Can't wait!

It's hard to believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Actually, it's knocking on the door! This makes me excited because it begins our Christmas fun. We will be finding a tree, decorating, lighting our advent candles, learning about Jesus and his arrival and return, salvation, gifts, and the greatest Gift of all! At one time we had retired some of our family traditions. It's so fun to revive them with the next generation :-) Here's a picture of our family with MomMom Bert and PopPop Jim during Thanksgiving last year.I hope to share some of our traditions in the coming weeks...And it would be awesome if some of you share yours too!

We write what we are thankful for on paper leaves and place them in a basket and read them. Also we play games together as a family. It is an all day event.

Ahhhh, Terry, I love Thanksgiving for the same reason....it begins our Chrismtas traditions. And, now we get to do all of those things we did when our grown kids younger all over again. This will be such a wonderful Christmas for us, with Ellie and Brandon now home, now settled, no questions.
I'm excited,
