Well, it all started in the morning when we were woken up by the loud construction going on across the street from our apartment. I was a little confused when I first heard them because I could not figure out why they would be working on Thanksgiving...but then it hit me they are not celebrating today! So as we got our food ready to take over to a friend’s house I began to think about how thankful I am and what I am thankful for. Then that turned into, do I show my thankfulness daily, or do I forgot when life gets a little hard how much God does really care for me and how much He has shown up when I needed Him most.
So after spending an amazing day with four other GREAT couples from our school I sat back as I watched Josh enjoy some American football with the guys and heard sounds of laughter coming from the kitchen table full of girls gabbing about anything and everything and said a little prayer thanking the Lord for all the many blessings he has given us even in this country that does not know what Thanksgiving is.
We hope you and your family had an amazing day thinking about all that God has given you!

It was my first time to attend such an occasion at Vienna Christian School. I very much admire the closeness and the family like atmosphere upon entering the building. Much to my galore the friendliness and the great costumes that Friday night added colors to the main event. The programs were great and very entertaining the pie throwing, WOW!
Here are some pictures of the night :)
