Around the MacHouse, we really love Thanksgiving. We love that it is less commercialized than most holidays and usually doesn't involve as much running around. We love that it involves family circled around a table loving each other and loving some fabulous food. We love the stories of the pilgrims and the Mayflower which has a direct link to my husband's ancestors as he had family that were part of that motley crew. And we love Thanksgiving because of the reason it even exists, to set aside time to thank God for all He has done and provided over the last year.

Today was the perfect kick-off for the season of Thanksgiving as it was filled with good friends, special time with family, fun happenings, and time for worship and testimony.

At IHOP with the boy.  It is his month to go out with Mom and he said he wants to experience IHOP before moving to Africa. #coffee #ihop #breakfastwiththeboy

Breakfast with my oldest boy.

Kroger was giving away free candy bars at the check-out today and I wasn't going to get one til my son said he thought I'd get a Heath Bar since it is healthy.  Hmmmm...just one letter difference between Heath and health.  I think I'll pretend he's right.

Free chocolate at Kroger.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
