I know the blog has been quiet for a little while, but I am going to do my best to change that! Starting with our Thanksgiving. We spend a couple days up in Iowa at our grandparents house. Seriously, it is the best place to spend Thanksgiving! Our grandparents are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet and we absolutely love every moment we get to spend with them.

We were all busy in the kitchen and enjoying lunch so much that I didn't get any pictures of Thanksgiving day... But I got some of us helping around the farm the next day!

Grandpa and Grandma's garden produces some of the largest, most delicious veggies! Or maybe Grandma just knows how to cook them perfectly. But harvest is over now so we helped winterize the garden.

Enjoying the beautiful sunshine in November.

Helping Grandpa put a floor in his greenhouse.

This is a pretty common sight on Saturdays in the fall. The Husker football team didn't do very well this year. But we still wore red and cheered them on. Hopefully next year will be better! 

When we arrived home we sat around our dinner table and made our traditional list of what we are grateful for in the year 2017. The list was long and we were once again blown away by God's faithfulness and kindness in the good times and in the struggles. I think top on the list was the power of the gospel and the truth of God's Word. It is truly life-changing!

"Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
and into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name."
Psalms 100:4
