~Thanksgiving poem and Some pics~

~My Thankful Poem~
I have so many things to be Thankful for...
That I could list them all day, and still have more. =)
I'm very Thankful that Jesus died upon the tree,
So that he could save and sanctify me.

I've very glad that my sweetheart Phillip came into my life.
He is such a dear, kind, and Godly man, and I'm glad I'm his wife.
And I'm glad that God has blessed our happy home,
With 4 precious children to include in this "Thankful" poem.

I'm Thankful also for my sister and brothers and their families,
And I wouldn't trade my sweet Mommy and Dear Daddy.
And for food, shelter, clothes, and I could NOT forget shoes...(I LOVE shoes =)
And I'm thankful for all of y' dear friends too. =)

~I found these cute little ice cream cone candies and our children enjoyed them.~~They took little bites to make them last longer.~
~UH-OH...look who found the book shelf?!~
~Elijah says that books are the best thing to teeth on. =)~

~Look at the disaster he made. =) We named him right...he is a very intense baby. (Elijah the prophet was intense too. =) I'll probably not get much done when our Elijah starts crawling and walking. =)~

~I love Elijah's little crooked grin here.~
~Elijah...All squeaky clean.~
~Noah being silly trying to look like a miniature man kneeling in Daddy's shoes. =) If you look closely, you can see that his front tooth is bad.~
~This past Saturday, Noah got his tooth fixed. We thank the Lord for a good dentist here and that Noah has his tooth fixed up like new. =)~
Lord willing I plan to serve Thanksgiving dinner to 15 Colombians plus our family of 5. We are excited about this day, but have LOTS to do before then. =) Our Colombian friends are excited to see what Thanksgiving is all about. =) We plan on going around the table and each telling something we are thankful to God for, singing some Thanksgiving hymns together, and maybe reading a short Thanksgiving passage of Scripture. We Thank the Lord for answering prayer and helping us find a turkey to have for Thanksgiving along with our ham that the Union Friends sent to us! =) (They normally don't put out turkeys until December here in Colombia.)
~From our family to yours...Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!!~

Happy Thanksgiving! That is so neat that you'll have a full table of Columbian family! We love you all and are THANKFUL you're serving Jesus in His vast harvest field.
Thank you for all your prayers and VERY meaningful phone call. Lorna just cried and cried that you took the time to love and CARE! Thank you!Jesus knew just what was needed and you were His faithful hands to put to action heavenly thoughts here on earth.
Blessings to you all!

The dentist did Super on Noah's tooth. His smile is so pretty~!, oops, I mean HANDSOME! :-) Can't believe Elijah is in a walker already. I got your e-mail, glad you found some that I'm guessing can be mailed straight to you? Kristal & I debated using them for the rehearsal dinner, but she already had more than enough decor! ;-)

Sweet pics of the kids! Elijah looks soo ornery! Your Thanksgiving dinner plans sound fun and busy! My parents have always been good about sharing our family Thanksgiving table with others who do not have any place to go and it is such a blesssing to share our bounty! I know that God will bless your family and that you will have a delicious dinner! Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
