Thanksgiving recap....

Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday!

This year we went to Dallas where Sam's sister Amy lives. They rented out the clubhouse that is available in their neighborhood--it was beautiful! There was a roaring fire keeping us toasty and warm, a media room with big screen tv and comfy chairs, a kid's room with toys and a separate tv and bean bag chairs, a work-out type room with big balls for the kids to bounce around, and Amy set up a LOOOOOOONG table to seat all 25 or so of us!

The kids had so much fun! Henry and Jonah will be talking about it for years to come. :)

The food was great, there were more pies than we could handle and lots of pre-dinner snacks. The guys watched football and then headed outside during half-time to play football even though it was a little chilly outside!

It was a really great day.

Yes, Sam actually wears these sunglasses. I have no comment.

Henry had a fun Thanksgiving feast with his pre-school class on Tuesday before the holiday. It was adorable! They had a great time together and got a little crazy.

One final story. We've been wondering if the boys are getting the true Christmas message, or if they're just getting caught up in a more worldly view of it. Sam and I have been really working with the boys and praying that they would really "get" it this year. We were in the van today and Jonah saw some Christmas decorations. He shouted out, "Hey! It's almost God's birthday!" :)

I can't stand it! Sam WEARS those glasses. No, tell me it's not true. He is an optical technicians nightmare! That man needs some serious eyewear intervention!!

Love the recap. You guys are the most blessed family. What a great bunch of people to spend the day with.

Precious little Jonah. Doesn't it just bless your heart when the truth becomes their reality?!
