"Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and make a joyful noise until Him with psalms. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand are the deep places of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker." Psalm 95:1-6

This is Tyler and I's first big holiday spent in Virginia, just the two of us. We're still in our PJs and slippers this morning watching the parade and cooking up a storm. On the menu is maple bacon glazed turkey with bourbon gravy, smokey bacon biscuit stuffing ("Everything's better with bacon!" might as well be our family motto), green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, rolls, and pumpkin pie. A lot of food for two people! There's also a pot of russian tea on the stove and all of the boxes of Christmas decorations have been pulled out and are ready to be put up. We may spend time with friends this evening, perhaps ice skating at the Sculpture Garden or just taking in a movie.

We are SO thankful for all of our famiy and friends that we can't be with today. We miss you and are thinking of you. We have such a great, supportive, close family and so many friends whom we love. We wish there were a way to be in Arizona, California, Georgia, Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri, and Alabama today, but....we don't want to travel that much. :) We are also thankful for good health, a nice, warm house, income and food on the table, and a great church. We are truly blessed and wish not to forget the One to whom we owe it all.

We love you all, think of you, and thank God for you today. Happy Thanksgiving!
