Thanksgiving

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family.  This past year has been so full.  It was a year ago this week that I left camp.  When I reflect on all that God has done this past year, I'm overwhelmed with thanks.

Here's a bit of a recap:

  • God directed me to leave the camp ministry....difficult, but part of His plan.
  • God gave me a wonderful three months of rest and time with my family.
  • God provided me with a job before I even started looking.
  • God led me to buy my first house....all by myself.....I was scared out of my mind.  It has truly become a home.
  • God led me to a wonderful church family where He is allowing me to serve Him.
  • Last, but certainly not least, God brought a wonderful man into my life.....see previous post if you missed it. :)
This past year has been such a growing time for me. He has truly blessed me and I'm thankful for all He has done.  I can't wait to see what this next year holds.

Here are few pictures of our family celebration this year.

Scott, Autumn, Jamie & Ethan - time to load up on the yummy dinner

Ethan and Me - I love the look on his face.  He's such a ham.

Donna & Uncle Smiley (just gave him that nickname this week)
We also celebrated Christmas with Scott and his family since we won't get to see them.  Below are the gifts I gave the kids.  I love them, but I'm sure their parents might not like the idea of them playing with their food.  What can I say....I'm a great aunt. :)

Looks like a great time, Eirs! I think the gift idea is great. Their parents can make them their fruit and veggie plates, so they have fun eating the nutritious stuff. :)
