So Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers.
I hope this Thanksgiving finds you all with grateful hearts.
We have so much to be thankful for this year.
The biggest thing we are thankful is the love of a kind and loving Father, who cares about even the smallest details of our lives.
We are also thankful this year, for our newest addition. How different this Thanksgiving could have been, had things not gone well. So many parents are going through the motions this year, as they try to cope with life without their children. Children who were taken far too soon by CHDs. My heart hurts for them, and even though I have so much to be thankful for, I can't help but feel sadness for all of them. I cannot imagine how they must feel tonight.
All of the children are thriving and happy, for that, I am thankful.
We have arrived in Ohio, and are in our temporary lodging. We will be here through the holidays.
It is comfortable here, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Best of all, it's warm. We've quickly learned it is quite cold in Ohio.
We've tried to make it homey here and have put up some Christmas lights for the kids, outside. We are the only people here who have lights, but that's OK.

After looking at loads of houses, and praying a lot, we put an offer in on a house we loved. After negotiating all day, we have come to an agreement, and we will be closing on December 23. We are so excited to be homeowners! And yet, it is a bit scary! If something goes wrong, it's our responsibility! YIKES!! We love the house though, and could see our family there. It was the biggest house we looked at, and the least expensive! Can't beat that.
Here are a couple pics from the realty site.

I'm baking pumpkin pies, and Matt will be making a cheesecake. We've boiled the eggs. Tomorrow, we'll celebrate all we are thankful for, and know that all our blessings come directly from our Lord.
May you be richly blessed this Thanksgiving.
