Thanksgiving 2017 highlights

Last week we ventured off to the big city to celebrate Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful time visiting Joshua's family for 4+ days. While we were there, our oldest daughter, Rebekah decided to cut off her long, gorgeous hair for a big change! Her angled bob is very cute on her! I do miss her mane of locks though! She will donate the hair soon.
 Caleb had gotten a new 5 X 5 Rubik's cube for his birthday, and he was still working on it, as well as another mega cube that he had. The boys working on the cubes was a very common sight.
 Nana and the grand girls (my 3 daughters and my 3 nieces) baked pies on Wednesday. They made the dough and rolled it out. We had six pies!
 Note Mallory's amazing hairdo...
Here's the baking group in their cute aprons:
 My niece & nephew on the other side of my family came by, so my sister could take us to the hair salon. It was cute to see the girls all together. Love them!
 On Thursday morning we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving parade (with a few of their friends)...
 Bethany wrote a list of what she is thankful for... (which is amazing because she doesn't like to write!)
 The kids watching a video on Rebekah's phone...
 The crew all ready to eat! (including my brother-in-law's parents)
 The next morning, the girls were looking at old pictures on Nana's laptop...
 We had a little birthday party with these two girls, and here they are wearing their new outfits! (including new boots!) Thanks Nana and Auntie Allie! We are loving comfy LuLaRoe!
 We are thankful for our family, which are also some of our best friends! We love getting together and were sad to leave, but so happy to be in our own beds! What a blessing! We are thankful for the delicious food, fun games that we played, lots of laughing, Bunco (which may be a new tradition!), and mostly for our Lord, Jesus and His saving grace for each one of us! What a great God we serve!

What are you thankful for this year?

Psalm 136:1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.

Psalm 100
A psalm. For giving grateful praise.


1 Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

MFW- The ten plagues of Egypt

In our homeschool this fall, we have been reading through Genesis and Exodus. We have been reading recently about the ten plagues of Egypt in the book of Exodus. Our curriculum from My Father's World encourages the kids to dress up and act them out. My girls have really enjoyed doing this... what a neat way to bring Bible learning to life! Their pictures have cracked me up with all of their goofy facial expressions. My BFF is doing the same curriculum with her boys, so we exchange pictures with each other. I thhnk acting it out gives them a better glimpse of what it was like. Of course, we didn't have thousands of frogs, only 50. Our water was turned red by food coloring, not really blood, but you get the idea.
Plague of frogs and water into blood...

 Plague of flies and death of livestock...

 The plague of boils...


 Plague of the death of the firstborn...

 We didn't act out the plagues of gnats and locusts, since they are similar to flies. We also didn't act out the plagues of hail and darkness, since the kids could understand those. We did see a video of a locust invasion though... EW! To think that God hardened Pharoah's heart through ALL of the plagues, causing hardship on all the people of Egypt, and Pharaoh wouldn't let them go! WOW!

You can read more about the plagues of Egypt in Exodus 6-11 here. 

Exodus 9  The Plague on Livestock

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worshipme.” 2 If you refuse to let them go and continue to hold them back, 3 the hand of the Lord will bring a terrible plague on your livestock in the field—on your horses, donkeys and camels and on your cattle, sheep and goats. 4 But the Lord will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and that of Egypt, so that no animal belonging to the Israelites will die.’”

5 The Lord set a time and said, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this in the land.” 6 And the next day the Lord did it: All the livestock of the Egyptians died, but not one animal belonging to the Israelites died. 7 Pharaoh investigated and found that not even one of the animals of the Israelites had died. Yet his heart was unyielding and he would not let the people go.

Exodus 9:13-15   The Plague of Hail

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning, confront Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me, or this time I will send the full force of my plagues against you and against your officials and your people, so you may know that there is no one like me in all the earth. For by now I could have stretched out my hand and struck you and your people with a plague that would have wiped you off the earth.

Caleb's 15th birthday!

Our boy Caleb is 15 already!?! We had a nice party celebrating him this past weekend. He decided to have a drum theme, it was cool! We had drumsticks and music as decorations, and he loved the gifts. 

 He loves his new FLASH wallet from his cousins...
We got him a new Broncos jersey and shirt to wear under it...
 Since he was in the pep band earlier in the day, we decided to order pizza rather than make something, it was a nice change! The pizza was delicious and easy!
 A new sweatshirt and sweatpants from grandparents...
 Reading his card while Auntie and Nana look on...
 A cool new z-cube... he already figured out how to solve it! What a smart kid!
 He loves his new drummer mug from Nana...
 And the handmade Broncos scarf!
 New tech deck (finger skateboard) ramps from his friend...
 Cool LED drumsticks from Grandpa...
 And a fun Darth Vader shirt! Thankful for the great gifts!
 The birthday boy with his cake...
Our drum cake with drumsticks....

We are thankful to God for our fine young man and time celebrate another year with him! He's a pretty great teenager so far!



Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”


Proverbs 4:1
Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.

Proverbs 3:11-12
My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
