After that, we came home and watched White Christmas (a tradition of mine growing up) and put together our "stockings" which in reality were assorted baskets; you can't find stockings here. Such fun!
The next morning we got up, read from the Book an account from John who said that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us bringing light to all men. We sang praises and then opened our "stockings". Benjamin really enjoyed "helping" us with our stockings!
After stockings, we headed to the kitchen and enjoyed a yummy breakfast of biscuits and sausage gravy (and by sausage, I mean a homemade beef version- which didn't turn out too bad!). Then, back to the living room for presents!
More pictures of Benjamin in the snow to come!
Love you bunches,
After dinner we were able to sing some songs and listen to the story of Squanto (which is actually quite amazing if you have never heard it!). After some yummy desserts we played a doubles ping pong tournament which reminded me of Thanksgivings back home. Keith and his partner made it to the final game but lost by a close margin. Way to go hubby!
Happy belated Thanksgiving from our family to yours! Please continue to ask that we would live a life of thanksgiving and be a light in this place.
Please ask that this holiday season we would focus on Him and why we celebrate. Ask that as people see our tree they would ask why we celebrate and the meaning of the snowflakes. Ask that this country would have an anticipation for the Savior during this Advent season and ask questions. Ask that the Son would be glorified!
