Yes, I am thankful for my husband and children, my extended family, my home, my car, that we have food on our table each night, and I could go on and on, like most of you. So, on the way home from picking the children up from piano, I began to really search my heart about this (there are moments of peace in the car to be able to think). Right about then, this song came on the radio. This song is the reason we have Thanksgiving, the reason the Pilgrims traveled far to a strange land so that they could have the freedom to worship. This song brings me to tears each time I hear it, and even to my knees. I think this song sums up why I am so thankful this Thanksgiving. Jesus is everything to me and I hope he is everything to you.

Forming their loaves.
Almost ready to put in the oven. Wonder if those hands are clean? (No, they did not eat the loaves they made.)
Showing them how their oven works. Kinda wish I had one of these:).

This was our group.
This was outside in the gardens. I imagine this is really beautiful in the spring.
The kids were sitting here doing some sketching of the gardens. The museum gave each of them a box w/ paper, crayons, pencil and eraser, and an art card. They can bring their boxes back each month and Philbrook will give them another art supply and art card. Isn't that neat? I am definitely going to take advantage of this wonderful place more often.

The BANDITS played 3 games and took 4th place in the tournament. Way to go! Henry was so proud of his trophy.

I just want to say thank you to my mom and dad. They helped me out w/ the 2 little ones this past season and made things a lot easier for me. Here is Silas in the car w/ mom. We tried to get him to wear this ear muff outside, but he wouldn't keep it on, until he got in the car and didn't need it.

1. When Aaron and I were first married, I thought I never wanted to have any children (I now have 6).
2. I once took a hip hop dance class a few years ago for a couple of months (don't ask).
3. I love to play just about any sport.
4. When I was kid, I was hit by a pick-up truck while riding my bike. After I was hit, I just got up and got back on my bike and rode off. I laugh when I think about what those people must have been thinking.
5. I flunked Physics in college (don't know why I didn't get out of the class?)
6. I have had only one pedicure in my life.
7. I change and wash my sheets at least once a week (I know that that is a little extreme).
Maybe I'll tag someone on Facebook.

After taking my shower and getting ready for the day, this is what I walk out to. Aaron has his apron on because he makes breakfast for himself and the children. He has his headphones on because he is usually on a conference call while doing this. He will unload/load the dishwasher and sometimes feeds the baby. He also voluntarily does my grocery shopping (Wal-Mart and Sam's) w/ at least 3 of the children. The last time he did the shopping he came home w/ these:
I think I have the best husband in the world!
