Thanksgiving recap

I know that it's almost January, but I am just now getting around to uploading our Thanksgiving pictures (we have been a little busy packing & moving!) We enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Carolinas (and Georgia) and got to spend lost of time with some dear friends and family.

We had Thanksgiving breakfast with our dear friends, the Edingers.

Emma was thankful for a full tummy!

Emma and her (second?) cousin Taylor playing Mimi's piano.

Time for some turkey!
We cheered on those Gamecocks to a victory over Clemson (note: my husband was very kind to wear a maroon shirt even though his heart was cheering for the Tigers)!

We went to Mays Park (where Mommy played as a kid).

Had some snuggle time.

Loved on Granddaddy.

Enjoyed spending time with the cousins.

Daddy & Mommy got an inside tour of the Augusta National Golfcourse, thanks to Uncle Michael!

We had a wonderful trip and were thankful for the time we got to spend with family and friends.

What's your favorite Christmas song?

Just wondering...what is everyone's favorite Christmas song? Mine, by far, is "O Holy Night". There is something about that song that moves my soul every time I hear it. So, what's yours?

This is how we traumatized our daughter the other night.

Everything's changing (once again!)

In a couple weeks, this will be our new home.

Yes, our family will be moving into the Baptist Friendship House, as volunteer staff (missionaries). After I lost my job in October, things were uncertain for our family. Then, this wonderful opportunity arose for our entire family to serve the city with a ministry that is dear to our hearts. Matt will continue working at Earth Search during the day and I will continue to chase around Emma and help out with whatever is needed during the day. Then we will basically be "on call" at night in case there are any emergencies or things that need taking care of. If you are not familiar with the Friendship House, they are a transitional housing program for homeless women and children. They also serve the community in many other ways including giving out hygeine kits and food to the homeless, offering job readiness and GED classes, counseling, etc. We are SO excited to be able to be a part of this ministry and serve the city we love so much! Please be praying for us as we make this transition.
