Giving Thanks

 I wanted to create some sort of  "Thanksgiving Tree" for our gathering this year.  I found a photo suggesting the use of real branches, and it was sooo simple to assemble.  Then, with everyone's expression of thankfulness on the leaves, it became really colorful and fun!
all the Thanksgiving kids!
Taylor surprised Adrian & I with a "Birthday Pie".  It was sooo nice, since we didn't get to celebrate the week before!

And yes, we are cheering on those Packers.  They are 10-0!!!!

 Yesterday we enjoyed an amazing feast followed by lots of games and time with good, closer friends.  Today when I asked Ella whether she had as much fun as she thought she would have (with all the anticipation and all), she replied, "I had way more fun that I thought.  I think God was trying to tell me something.  He was trying to tell me that heaven is going to be like Thanksgiving every day, only better!" 

such a sweet, smart, and intuitive girl!  :)  And just one of the people I have to be thankful for!

...and I'm camera shopping so I can continue to post pictures here  :)
