Thanksgiving in AMERICA

It was so nice being back in the States for Thanksgiving-where people actually understand what it is all about! Reflecting back on this past year we do have so much to be thankful for-a healthy and precious baby girl, a new nephew, returning to the States safely, Paul's new job, a new home, our health, new friends...the list could go on. However, I am most thankful for being redeemed by the blood of my Savior. I am so unworthy and I pray that my life daily reflects Jesus-it is ALL about Him!

Well, we headed to Louisville to spend the holiday with Paul's family. Paul had to work until Wednesday, so I flew solo with the kiddos on Monday. God is so good and put one of our good friends sister-in-laws on the plane with us and she was a HUGE help! We actually stayed at my parents house with the Akin's because my sweet family was out of town celebrating on an island far away :) It is always great being with all the Akin's and having all the little ones together. We had a busy but great week together. On Thanksgiving day we headed to Anna's (my sis-in-law) family's house for our big meal and celebration. Her parents were the sweetest hosts ever and her Mom had gone above and beyond-the food was delicious! Here are a few pics of our week-unfortunately I forgot to take too many...
