Thanksgiving Day 2005

Today we spent Thanksgiving with the Engelsma family. There were 27 people present, all of Chris's immediate family. Mom E. made a fantastic dinner and we had our choice of about 6 desserts. We were supposed to head to Canada with my family this afternoon, but the weather was too bad. Hopefully it clears up a little tomorrow so that we can still go. Chris hasn't seen Grandma and Grandpa Roffel in a year and they have only seen their great grandson twice so we hope we can go tomorrow. Right now our house is freezing. We have the woodstove going which heats our main sitting room, but Chris has the rest of the house set at about 55 degrees F. Brrrr!! Presently I'm wearing my winter coat and have a blanket covering my legs. Andrew is sleeping in his sweats and a sleeper with two blankets covering him. Hopefully we can get that woodstove cranking to heat more of the house.
On a more serious note, I realize how much I have to be thankful for. A house, food, health, family, a loving husband, a beautiful son, and another child on the way. It is easy to take these things for granted, but I know I need to continually thank God for all He has given me. I hope you all have had a blessed Thanksgiving.
