celebrating Jesus's birth...

because he gave He gave His life for us...
we celebrate new life in Him.

praising Jesus for this year:

in prayer,
in fellowship,
in fun (for those of you wondering, this is St. Basil's Cathedral in candy),
through song ("Go tell it on the mountain!")
through creation,
and the enjoyment of creation!,
in hidden places for quiet times,
and joyously for all to see,
we worship you Jesus,
thank you for our family,
but most of all, thank you for YOU and YOUR love!

And on the more composed side...

It has been a while since we all had a photo together, but here we are as a family for Thanksgiving: The Hoffmans. What a blessing!

we thank the Lord for laughter...

We enjoyed a very fun Thanksgiving with lots of laughs!

Evan told us about a game called "push." This entailed two people standing with their feet planted and only their hands can touch. You try to push the other person off balance using only hands.

This literally provided hours of entertainment...

...and laughs!

It was so great to have all of the family together in one house for an extended time! We look forward to many more years like it!
