we give thanks...

Tonight at dinner we talked about the first thanksgiving and the importance of giving thanks to God for all that he has given. It is such a fun experience seeing Bekah begin to really understand things and just soak everything in. I am learning that this is such a special age. Every new piece of information and each new discovery is just so exciting! If only we could hold on to that excitement on into adulthood....

We have so much to be thankful for...

I thought it would be fun to ask Josh, Bekah and even Anna what they are thankful for and add it as part of this post...

Rebekah is thankful for.... (these are her exact words:) )

2.) Apple Juice and Orange Juice
3.) Birds
4.) Elephants
5.) My Toys
6.) Anna
(I am loving that she loves her sister..... we will see if she is just as "thankful" for her in about 3 or 4 years :)

Anna is thankful for...... (As interpreted by Mommy)
1.) My Blanket
2.) Bath time
3.) Grapes
4.) Mommy and Daddy :)

Josh is thankful for...... (This is all Josh)
1.) For all my girls.
2.) A job I like
3.) Being a part of a church family.

I am thankful for..... ( I could write endless pages just listing the things that I am grateful for. These are the things that first popped into my head)

1.) My Salvation.... My destiny is secure because God sent his son to pay the price...
2.) My family.... both immediate and extended.
3.) My friends.... God has given us wonderful people to laugh with, vacation with, cry with, share with and just enjoy life with.
4.) My home...

Tomorrow, Thanksgiving, is a day to remember God's faithfulness and blessings to us and our country. And as I think about all the things I have to be thankful for I am truly humbled. We have been blessed beyond measure.

I am adding some pictures of our evening activities.....

I have been promising Rebekah that we would do a craft involving paint for a couple days now. So tonight I finally got out the stuff and she painted a cross for her bedroom. She loves any chance to be creative!

CHEEEEEZZZZZZZ...... Tomorrow, you bring the turkey..... we've got the ham right here! ;)

And look what this little monkey mastered today! Nothing is "safe" with this child!

Yep.... she climbed up there all by herself. And then shows us.....

"Look mommy and daddy!!! NO HANDS!!!!"

She keeps us on our toes!
