November Lookback


A month marked by Thanksgiving.

A lead up into the month long holiday of December.

Sometimes I think you are overlooked.  A month to be endured until Turkey Day on the last Thursday of your month.

But I love you for that.

A month of thanks-giving.

Because no matter what this world looks like, and where your situation currently is, there is still hope in Jesus.

And unfortunately that can sometimes get lost in what we make the big picture of life.

Make thankfulness your offering to God 
and keep the vows you made to the Most High
Then call on the Lord when you are in trouble and He will rescue you and you will give Him glory.  Psalm 50:14-15

And now we are rolling into December, where we celebrate a month of that Hope that is Promised.

But first, a pause of thanks.

Took our kids to experience a concert for the first time.  Chris Tomlin and Rend Collective.  It was an awesome night of worship.  Owen made it all the way through, the girls fell asleep for the last 20 minutes.
I am so thankful for this man.  Thankful for his commitment to me and most importantly to Jesus.

The beginning of the month gave us a few mild evenings where the kids could practice some soccer skills with Paul before the sun went down.

 The joy of just playing in piles of leaves

 And then it turned frigid and we tried out the woodstove.  This room will most certainly be the gathering place for the winter.

Due to jaw issues and teeth being pushed out of the gums in fear of falling out, a new adventure: Braces.

 Madeline's leaf crown project for school

 Having friends over for cabbage, bacon, noodles. 

 Several inches of snow fell mid month. This creation was made completely by them.  

 Thanksgiving with the Suvar's.  Brothers playing basketball, fried turkey, and homemade noodles.

 And to finish up the month...putting up the Christmas tree, of course!
