I ate way too much - I always gain a few lbs. when I go back home! I brought home a delicious pumpkin roll - thanks Grandma Fogle and I'm looking forward to having a little of that each day this week just to savor Thanksgiving a little longer.
It was great to visit with family, the Sizemore side and the Farmer side this visit! We love all of you and it was great to catch up with everyone!

The Christmas Tree is up - I don't believe we have ever been this early. We are heading out of town tomorrow and will be gone until Sunday so at least it is a project that we won't have to do when we get home! We are looking forward to Thanksgiving and BlackFriday Shopping . My mom and I go every year and we have such a great time. There is nothing better than spending a whole day shopping, eating, laughing and talking with your mom.
We have so much to be thankful for:
- Healthy children that are smart and energetic
- A husband who works hard and loves the Lord
- the shelter of our house
- the food on our table
- family that loves and cares for us
- friends that are always there to help us out
- our freedom to Worship the Lord
- Knowing Jesus as my Lord and Saviour
I could go on and on because there are so many wonderful blessings in my life. There are so many things that I take for granted and should be thanking God for everyday. God is good and He is a Provider, Comforter, Saviour and Friend. I' m so thankful that He is my Friend!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving

We did have a busy day - homeschool group then a few families came to our house for lunch and of course she was up last night - she got up to go potty about 11ish and when I went to bed around 12:30ish she was asleep in the hallway outside of her bedroom. Then her and Rach were up around 6:20 this morning. So finally, she sleeps with daddy!

Zach and Jord have been going out every day at lunch to practice basketball, they just came in and their whole faces are red from the cold outside!
Jord just got her own e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org , so she has been sending me e-mails everyday and this is one that I received the other day -

It makes me cry every time I read it - I'm glad to know that she would never request another person to take my place as mom. As far as she if concerned her dad and I are doing a great job of raising them and she loves the Lord and knows that she will serve Him all of her days!
Precious huh? Giving her an e-mail address has gotten her creative writing juices flowing.

Of course, now I'm a little anxious for the night - will anyone else get it! The kids seemed so hungry before bed and were asking for all kinds of snacks and I was trying to ration out the smallest amounts.
We'll see what the night holds!

We picked up our nephews Kane and Gabriel for the Family Fun Nite and ended up keeping them all weekend. We just took them home tonight.
Saturday we spent the day outdoors - it was beautiful here! We did yardwork and cleaned out the van and garage and did some "painting". I hardly ever get out the paints, but we got out some pieces of wood left over from the building of the playhouse and got busy making some awesome masterpieces.
We had a wonderful service today at church - I love that song, "I am a friend of God!" Who am I that You are mindful of me? It's Amazing! Pastor preached about Love - 1 Corinthains 13 - one of my personal favorites!
I love all of you - God has blessed me with wonderful family and friends.
Well, we've survived the Fall Back time change! It was dark tonight at 6pm! Looking forward to voting this week and our big Election night party and no school on Wed!
Have a great week,
