Guy and I came home last night from Bible study with a big suprise from the kids. While we were gone they had set the table beautifully for our family of four. The candles were lit throughout the house (that might freak a few people out) and Hayden and Cooper were beaming as we walked through the door. The soup I had prepared earlier was hot on the stove, our places had been set. Can we get any luckier?
We sat down to our meal, still sort of in shock that the kids went out of their way for us. We held hands and prayed. Guy thanked God for all that we are blessed with, especially for our family. While we ate we went around the table each person taking turns to list something that we were thankful for, here is a portion of what we came up with.
1. Ozzy, our wonderful dog
2. Ronny T our crazy cat
3. our house
5. Aunt, Uncles, Cousins,Grandparents, siblings
6. that Hanna and Hayden met at kindergarten round up
7. getting to sleep in
8. great friends
9. getting to sleep in this weekend (did I already mention that?)
10. our jobs
There were many more things that we talked about that night and as I sit here typing I am still in awe of the things we came up with. I really wish I would have said that I am thankful for Blogs and Facebook because I LOVE being able to stay connected with all of you. So this Thanksgiving please know that we are thankful to know you and are honored to call you friends and family.
