Remember to Give Thanks

This Thanksgiving we decided to stay at home and take it easy.
Only one other time had we not spent Thanksgiving with one of our families.

Aaahhh no packing, no traveling, no time schedule...It was actually kind of nice!
We enjoyed the day with our girls and our good friends, Stephen and Sarah.

It was a good day...
The Cowboys even won!

As I prepared for the day I began to look through my recipe box for a certain recipe and came across this sweet recipe card that was made by Mere Bear when she was around 6 0r 7 years old.

I totally lost it when I read her precious handwriting.
I think I am a bit emotional right now because in a couple of weeks our precious 22 year old pumpkin will be graduating from college!

We truly have so much to be grateful for.
This little pumpkin shaped card was a reminder to me of God's faithfulness and provision throughout the years.

2 Cups of Bisquick Mix
1 Cup of Milk
2 Eggs
1 Cup Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp Cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together and pour onto hot griddle.
Enjoy with Syrup or Plain

PRAISE THE LORD , O My Soul, and forget not all his benefits -
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Sometimes despite God's great goodness all around me I sometimes fail to thank Him or remember what he has done for us.

May we never forget what He has done on our behalf!

Thank Him now and tell others of His wonders!

A Week of Giving Thanks ~ OH BOY!

This is my niece Priscilla and her precious family.

I am grateful for them and for God's provision and protection in their lives.

I am also grateful that I get to watch their baby Egil (pronounced Eagle)

when my schedule allows.

Here are some pictures of our time together

Great Aunt Veronica and Egil at a recent Ladies Brunch and Bible Study.

I look at him and thank OH BOY do we have a lot to be grateful for!

He is our little blessing!

My niece started a job on Monday and I volunteered to watch Egil for a couple of days this week.
The girls are home from school so they get to have fun with him too!
Here is Ju Bean playing ball with Egil. This is him throwing the ball to her.
He is good!
He loved playing with the girls.
Here he is laughing with Ali Bug.
I had three girls sooo....
this is what happens when you stay at my house!

We play dress up!

He really liked the hat!

We had fun!!
Hope I don't get in trouble from his daddy!
