A (late) Thanksgiving Recap

Life has been busy with work and a death in the family which has
kept me away from the computer and blogger for over a week. 

Let's back up to Wednesday night, Joe and I went to "Pie and Praise" at church. 
It was beautiful to hear everyone's testimonies and listen to all the various blessings
and trials that people are thankful for this year. 
I felt moved to speak and it was an emotional experience. 
I thanked God for my and my husband's salvation. 
He's changed our lives this year, my husband and I were both saved within 3 months
of each other and now we're a Christian family raising our daughter to know Jesus. 
To me, that's amazing
Olivia's life will be radically different than if God hadn’t done work in our lives and hearts. 
So, I thanked Him publicly for our salvation. 

Thanksgiving day we had dinner with my parents, mother-in-law, sister-in-law and nephew. 
Olivia had a blast playing with her cousin and the food was delicious!  Of course Olivia wouldn’t know that the food was good because I couldn’t get her to eat anything besides a roll!  Kids.

Joe and I did a little shopping on black Friday but NOT in the middle of the night!  We enjoyed the rest of our long weekend at dance, a play date with friends and their kids, church, shopping and more church! 

Now, it's time to start decorating for Christmas!

(I didn't take any pictures on Thanksgiving, I'm so bad with remembering to take the camera out!)

Was wondering where you've been - no posts, no Instagram...I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how tough it is when someone passes and I always think of those that have lost or lose someone around the holidays.

It is so awesome that both you and your husband were saved so close together. I have been praying that my husband gets saved, and waiting is so hard because I know how much more our lives will be when we are both living for the Lord.

Anywho, I hope you had a nice holiday! ANd I only got 1 picture from Thanksgiving so don't feel to bad ;-)
