Very Thankful

We have so much to be thankful for this year! One year ago, we thought we may never get pregnant and were starting to look for an adoption agency. Who knew that one year later, not only would we have the call that our son was just about ready to come home from Guatemala, but we have a beautiful little girl. God has always given blessings, but this year I feel more blessed than ever.
We are still waiting for the email telling us when our Embassy appointment is, but we will only have 6-10 days to plan and get ready to go. This is going to happen fast. And the sooner, the better. We are ready for Gabriel to come home.
Thanksgiving morning was spent taking care of a sick dog. Snowflake must have gotten into something, b/c she was sick all night and morning. We spent at least an hour trying to clean the carpets. We're going to probably hire the local carpet cleaner to come deep clean next week.

Thanksgiving dinner was spent with our wonderful friends Jason and Becca. We have been truly blessed with the friends God has placed in our lives, just since May. Jason & Becca (and Fred) and Aaron & Melissa (and the kids of course) have become more than friends. They are our family now. We had a fabulous dinner that included our favorites, antipasto appetizer and a fried turkey. Apparently, it's Dorval tradition for the turkey to have a last flight.

We had a TON of food. I swear, I think we could have fed an army.

After dinner Melissa and the kids came for dessert. Unfortunately Aaron had to work, so he wasn't able to be there. (Hey, guys, I think this is where the blogs meld.) Check out Becca and Jason's blog for a group pic. I don't have a copy yet. The kids played Wii (and I'm talking about the grown boys too) and climbed Jason like a tree. Hmm....we've been working on getting the house ready for a crawler. YIKES!!! I can't believe he's coming home.

Oh, yeah, Donavyn went for her 2 month well baby check today. She is now 22" long and 10 lbs 10 oz. Her head measures just under 15.25". She is getting so big! Here are some pics. Love you all!!!
