Thanksgiving

There is so much to be thankful for. I sort of feel like Jon and I are at a point in life where we have hope, things are getting better, but we don't even know how blessed we are. Someday, maybe 6 months from now, maybe 6 years, we are going to look back at this formative time and say to ourselves, "oh why did we worry so much? It all worked out so well, that time was the start of all our blessings."

We are very excited for Jon's new job but of course we worry about making money and what we should expect from this company. This job has endless potential, we have talked a lot about not being afraid to be successful. We have a good feeling about this gig, so we are hopeful.

Thanksgiving break was well needed and very appreciated. We have such sweet families who love us. Before we left I asked God to help me see all of the blessings we have in our lives. I think our families were all we needed to see.

We left Santa Barbara with a trunk full of food, leftovers, some grocery and gas money, and we even got a vacuum for our sweet Aunt. Our families mean so much to us, it is humbling to see how much they do for us.

It was also nice to see friends over break, enjoy the familiarity of home, see Harry Potter (epic), get some work done, and watch adorable home videos from both our families.

I am also very happy Jon got to see these guys...


We are now totally ready to get the Christmas season started. We are listening to Christmas music this morning and talking about getting some decorations out.

Now we are going to get ready for church, today we are teaching our little kids that Jesus is their Savior. Doesn't get much better than that.

God Bless.
