Since Christmas will be here before we know it, and our children are already trying to write their Christmas lists, we decided we needed to slow down for a minute. This year we literally had NOTHING to do for Thanksgiving. We weren't celebrating with our family, and it seemed like all of our friends were out of town this year. Rather than making a big "to do" out of our Thanksgiving meal, Steve cooked a big breakfast, and we had a casual late lunch. We worked on a 2000 piece puzzle, took a family walk and watched a movie. It was a very low key, yet pleasant day.
|2000 piece puzzle only took us 3 days to complete!|

Once we arrived at First Light, everyone found a role, and we served breakfast. Everyone there was grateful for the warm breakfast (since the shelter was technically observing a holiday, and warm meals are not served on those days). Our children got to participate, and give back, and we all walked away feeling even more grateful for our blessings (because we all know that can change on a dime).
