Our Thanksgiving Day

our friend Steve is gonna kill me for posting this
we were being silly
this looks like Po in Kung Fu Panda as
Mantis does the acupuncture and pokes his facial nerve

perhaps you can see some similarities...

still waiting for turkey....
standing on her daddy: on top of the world
watching charades: don't they look like they're having fun?
more charades
Their cat black bear wanted to go for a drive.
let's just say he was disappointed.

So what do you do on thanksgiving?
Pictionary anyone?

this is just a too cute picture of Micah with his daddy

some of the boys waiting patiently to eat

It was not only thanksgiving,
it was this special young lady's 8th Birthday

friends side by side

after a long day
best buddies cuddle and share the days stories

smiles as we hung out

those of you who knew me would never believe this is something I absolutely enjoy

but here was out day of thanks celebration

We have good friends that have almost become our family out here. Being military the holidays can be so lonesome but not with friends like these. They are a terrific homeschooling family with 8 children. what is so neat about our families it that they get along and share tons of the same ideals. They built most of their own home- intially it was just a simple cabin- and they have been turning it into the neatest house around. They live 'off the grid' (and for those of you that dont know that term- it means they generate their own electric with solar power and don't rely on the power company). Since the blog started these kids have been in many of our blog photos. But today I would just like to say how very thankful I am for each and every one of them. I cannot imagine my life without them, and our lives are so much richer with them in it, and no, I didn't just say all that 'cuz they fed us turkey yesterday! When family is 3000 miles away it is comforting to know that God provides 'family' wherever we are.
