We are so thankful for each of you and for the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving. We were so blessed to be able to celebrate with family!

Thanksgiving time is also birthday time around our home.  We had a great time celebrating two birthdays during the holiday weekend.

We also were excited to decorate for Christmas.  We decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.  Before we left the USA in 2009, we used to decorate our home with lots of lights.  David aspired to be Clark Griswold with his exterior illumination.  Last year we were struggling a lot during Christmas time and all we could muster the energy for was to put up the Christmas tree and decorations we hadn’t seen in years.  Last year we shopped the after Christmas sales to purchase lights and decorations.

This year is different.  We are in a better place in so many ways and enjoyed decorating, were energized by decorating.
