Yay for the month of November and the celebration of Thanksgiving. I have been writing on my facebook page every day something I am thankful for. I know that we should be thankful besides the month of November, and believe me, I am, but it's been fun to think of something every day that I am thankful for. Sometimes it's the beautiful weather, sometimes a friend or sibling, sometimes for the country which we live in, and often times for my fabulous husband. Something else I am thankful for is the word of God and the ability to attend a church and worship freely.
Thanksgiving is a few days away. We celebrated this past weekend with my family because originally I thought I had to work on Thursday. One of my attendings was nice enough to give us Thursday off, so we will be making the trek back to Dallas Thursday to spend Thanksgiving with Jonathan's family. I love Thanksgiving food. You know the kind of food I'm talking about: Ham, Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, jalepeno cream corn, and of course pies. YUM! One good thing about having 2 different Thanksgivings is that they are a few days apart and I will be able to fully enjoy the food both times. This past weekend we had a blast at my sister's house with my family. They recently bought a pool table and ping-pong table and we spent a lot of time playing Ping-pong. Brought back memories from college when we would play in the student center between classes. We also went to see Harry Potter and we LOVED it. It was wonderful to get to spend so much time with my mom, dad, siblings, grandma, nieces and nephew. It will be nice to get to spend the day on Thursday with Jonathan's family.
I am also thankful to have our home study set up. It is so exciting to be so close to having kids in our home. Our home study was originally set up for 2 1/2 weeks from now but because of some schedule changes we changed to one week from today! This weekend while I'm working nights Jonathan will have to clean house and get a few things organized. On Friday we are going to set up our Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas. Hopefully I can sleep some at the hospital on call so I can help on Saturday and Sunday. We are so close to the end, it's unbelievable. We do still need about 35 hours of observation time still but we can get everything else done before that.
I'll post the pictures my sister took of us this past weekend as soon as I get them from her. They turned out great!
I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
