A Year of Blessings

 I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my amazing family. We had a total of 26 people (including my whole immediate family). Actually only a fraction of my extended family was at our house. My Dad's whole family except for one brother {he's in the Navy and actually he's overseas right now on patrol so please keep him in your prayers} lives near us and were able to come. And one of my mom's sisters came with her family {keep them in your prayers as well - they are adopting a 13 month old girl from China and will be flying to China in a couple weeks to bring her home}. All in all it was a wonderful Thanksgiving and I couldn't have asked for a better one!

Speaking of grateful, I saw the ABC's of Thanks hosted over at finding joy and I wanted to join in

And onto more Thanksgiving pictures:
