Countdown To Thanksgiving Day 1

Yesterday and today have been all about preparation.  I'm exhausted but it's a good kind of exhausted.  Lots of cleaning, cooking, and baking!  Plus today I had the opportunity to teach at our wives' group.  It has been a long day but we are looking forward to a nice big dinner and sharing about what Thanksgiving means to us to our Russian and Ukranian friends tomorrow evening!

Tonight we also put up our Christmas tree!  It has become a tradition that I make a few snacks to go along and we also listen to Christmas music.  On the left we have pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, in the middle we have peanut brittle, and on the right we have chocolate peanut clusters.  I think Jojo ate more than half of the peanut brittle, while Nathan consumed most of the chocolate. 


The bread is drying for the homemade stuffing.

And ta-da Mr. Tom the Turkey is defrosting in the refrigerator.  He isn't quite as big as the turkeys in the States but he will have to do the job.  

Today I am so thankful for our wives' group.  These women are the wives of the men who are being trained to be pastors.  They are a real neat group of faithful ladies who desire to grow in their walk with God.  It is such a blessing to be a part of this special group of ladies.  It is also exciting to see God working in their lives.
