Busy Holiday Week


We have had my whole family here for the Thanksgiving week. Chuck flew in Wednesday night. My parents arrived about a week ago and my sister and her family also got here the night before Thanksgiving. It has been a full house and lots of fun.


We only get to get these cousins together every 3 0r 4 years and amazingly they all get along and have a lot of fun. Susan and her family are missionaries in Japan and are currently living in California. I wish the visits weren't so few and far between.













We went and picked out a tree (hopefully we wont celebrate Christmas in this house).













For fun we have gone letterboxing.












And the kids put on a Christmas play. Including an angel, Mary, Joseph, a shepherd and a director/narrator. It was so sweet.













***We should have our house appraised this week. Please continue to pray that it appraises for the agreed amount. If it doesn't, we will have to figure out what to do. We are trusting and believing that it will appraise, but in this crazy market, or if these buyers have someone working in their favor, we could have problems. Please pray!***

What a blessing to have the "whole push," as my Mama would say (have no idea of the etymology of that phrase), coming from all across the U.S. Praying about the appraisal...

It HAS been a blast doing lots of fun things together. Sure wish we could do this more often. So thankful for this Thanksgiving together. The play WAS too cute. We'll try to put the video of it on our blog when we get home. We love you cousins.

I'm so glad you had such a good time with your family. I know it's extra special when you don't get to be together very often. It's great to see your family again (even though only in pictures)!

It looks like you had a busy fun filled Day of Thanks!! It is always fun to be around family that you don't get to see that often. I will pray for your appraisal that things may go well!
