Hello there! It's been far too long since I have blogged. I have many pictures that I need to post, but I thought I would write a short Thanksgiving post.

This Thanksgiving our family of four is in St. Andrews. We are here staying at a friend's home while they are in the States visiting family for the holidays. It's a great opportunity for Joe to have some quality research time at the library here and for us to have bit of a holiday! We won't be having a huge Thanksgiving meal this year, but I must confess that I'm really excited about cooking for the four of us. We'll have the basics...stuffing, sweet potato casserole, veggies, etc. However, this year's dessert will not be pie, but fudge donuts from the local bakery that we love :)

Also, this announcement is a bit overdue but one of the main things our family is thankful for this year is a new baby on the way! Yes, for those who don't know we are expecting baby #3 around May 21st. I am about 15 weeks along and oh so glad to be out of the sickness that comes along with the first trimester. It was rough this time around and I doubted whether or not it would go away, but here we are feeling much better! The boys are very excited and often talk about helping mommy take care of ''her'' (they are convinced it is a girl...Mommy's not so sure).

SO, this year we will be thanking the Lord for the many blessings he provides. As a family of FIVE, we will come before him with Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a very blessed Thanksgiving this year.

Congratulations! Wonderful news! Glad you're feeling better now - that can sure be rough with two little ones to look after. Best wishes for an easy pregnancy from here on out.
