I know it's late, but we have been busy! Melissa, Paul and I had a great Thanksgiving. The night before my mom (DD) came to visit us for Thanksgiving. As we drove to the airport to pick her up we kept telling Melissa that DD was coming to see her. She would get so excited. When we got to the airport and found DD waiting on us outside, I told Melissa I see DD. She was saying DD over and over. When DD opened the door Melissa had a big smile on her face. It's so amazing how she can remember people already!

Today myself and another lady from our bible study classes delivered a complete Thanksgiving meal and a $75.00 Wal-mart gift card to a very special family. Our Bible Study class thought it would be nice for us to adopt a family from our church who needed some help during the Holiday Season. Our Class was matched up with a Family of 5 who is going through a hard time and didn't know how they would even feed their kids on Thanksgiving day. If you have ever been in this situation then you know how they feel.
When we dropped off the meal we thought we would just say hello and make small talk with the family, but God had a different plan for us. We ended up staying over an hour getting to know this family. This is what the Holiday season is a all about giving back to those in need
I have been trying to attach the onetruemedia video, but it won't let me.
Tonight our Church (Prestonwood Baptist) kicked off the Christmas season with a Tree Lighting Extravaganza. The 300+ Children's Choir preformed all the songs. The kids did a great job!
When we pulled in to the Church parking lot Melissa could see the BIG Christmas Tree and started getting excited. Once the music started she was having a blast. She would cry when the music and singing would stop. Melissa didn't like it when the kids would start telling a story, she wanted music. I'm so blessed that the weather was nice and that we could take Melissa to this. This is just another family traditions and memories we to share with her.
What a pretty tree!
Today I took Melissa over to meet Caleb. I met Caleb's Mommy at church and found out we live about 10 minutes away from each other. Caleb and Melissa are 3 months a part. Melissa had a blast playing with Caleb and his toys. For the most part they did well, but we had those moments when they would fight over that one toy! The kids had a little snack and ate it at Caleb's table. Melissa thought this was so neat. I think we might have to get her a table and chairs. Caleb's mom and I also enjoyed our talk and getting to know each other better. Looking forward to more play dates with Caleb.

First of all I want to say Thank You to our Veterans that have served our country.
Well not much has been going on in our world. I don't even have a picture to post. I just thought I would let you know we are doing good. I have been busy getting our office stuff organized. Since we have moved I haven't been doing a very good job at keeping the desk clean and paper free. For those who know me well, you know I'm not an organized person at all. You should have seen my desk when I worked. It was always a mess, but I could find anything you needed. My bosses would always get on to me for having a messy desk. I just can't help it.
I looking forward to Thanksgiving that is coming up in two weeks. We are staying home for Thanksgiving. So we will be spending time with our family here in the DFW Area. My mom is flying in to spend Thanksgiving with us. She doesn't know it but, her and Paul will be helping me decorate for Christmas!
