Happy Thanksgiving!

So, there are many reasons I have been unable to blog for the month of November...
The main one is that Judah was a sick little man for most of the month.  I kept having to go to the doctor and get him on all kinds of antibiotics.  Finally I took him in and they tested him for RSV and we found out that was what kept causing him to get sick so frequently!  I was partially relieved and partially terrified!  He had to do treatments every few hours for a week and finally those are over! Yay!!

Needless to say I didn't sleep and neither did he... for pretty much the whole month!  I am so excited to become a part of society again.  I get to go to church tomorrow and everything.  So much to be thankful for. 

We had the privilege of doing Thanksgiving at our house again this year.  I will have pictures very soon.  It was so much fun :-)  We had about 15 people here and about 150 lbs of food or more!  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  I love that you get to enjoy family and friends with no pressure of gift-giving and all that.  I love to give and I love to receive, but I feel sometimes that Christmas has just gotten out of hand.  I think we will start doing things to teach our kids that it is truly all about Christ coming in to the world and show them how they can bring Him into the lives of people that need Him.  Of course I want to bless my kids every year, but I feel the biggest blessing I can give them is to teach them how to reach out.  Just my opinion... not preaching here! 

Next week you may not hear from me.  I am taking Judah to see his Papaw and we are attending the funeral of my Great Aunt Midgie.  You may remember her from the pictures I posted back in July.  She was 92 years old and lived a full, wonderful life.  She got to meet Judah and for that I am grateful.  Her funeral is Wednesday and she will be greatly missed by all.
