date 3. thanksgiving feast.

this year, thanksgiving was a little different. i have learned something very important this year about being thankful. i think the quote below by shauna neiquist sums it up: 

“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.” -shauna

this year has definitely brought a lot of surprises. however, i have to choose to look for the sweet rather than drowning in the bitter. 

being in nyc, caleb && i were away from our families ( which we missed dearly !!! )
we thought it was important to spend time together. 
&&& boy, am i thankful we did :)

we went to out to dinner rather than gathering around a family table. 
we tried my best to make it feel like thanksgiving, including a turkey feast with mashed potatoes && stuffing. (thanks to the ellington for offering a thanksgiving feast)
caleb dined on pumpkin pie, while i was delighted with a mongolian bakery thanksgiving cupcake. 

finishing the night, we gathered around the rockefellor tree && watched the ice skaters dance around the ice. an early wake up call caused us to make it an early night as we fell asleep on the couch watching home alone 2 (new york style), of course!

  I will praise the name of God with song, And shall magnify Him with thanksgiving. 
Psalm 69:30
