Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope each of you had a wonderful Turkey Day... as did we. Unfortunately here in Sandland, they don't so much celebrate the Indians and the Pilgrims, so Stephen had to go to school... sad for him! We were able to enjoy turkey this year, unlike last year when we just had chicken! Someone has recently returned from the States and shared with the rest of us. We were with a large gathering of khawaajas (foreigners)and enjoyed all the fixings: mashed potatoes and gravy, something like sweet potatoes and something like green bean casserole too! Sadly no yeast rolls though! Sadie Mac enjoyed her first turkey day and dressed up for the occasion.(see pic below) Yes, this may look like an Easter dress, but considering it is still in the 90's, we thought she could rock the summer look for Thanksgiving. She pulled it off pretty well. We ignore the whole "no white after labor day" thing!! She also had her 4 month check up this week and we are thankful she is now 14 lbs and 25 inches. All is well with her!

We sure do miss our families...and the snow and cold weather this time of year back home, but look back at 2008 and feel truly blessed for our lives here and the blessing of our precious Sadie McLean. We are thankful for the support of family and friends, good health and the grace we find each day from our precious Savior and King.
