So Blessed

Happy Week After Thanksgiving everyone!!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Anything exciting happen? We spent the day with the Miraflors in Stockton. I have to admit it was ULTRA weird packing in Santa Rosa for Stockton. For so many years its been the other way around. Regardless, we drove the two hours and spent the night with my in laws and Thanksgiving with the Stockton Miraflor clan.
Seriously, it was so much fun.  We haven’t spent Thanksgiving with my in laws in several years, so it was a treat to be with them. The kids had the time of their life running around like maniacs. 
Lincoln and Evy, two little twinsies. Pretty sure its all in the hair. ha. 

Jake and Scout.  They have so much fun together.

Love this group.

My younger brother Brad was in town for three days this past week and on Friday we all went over to my parents to have dinner with him. My sister and her family also came and my parents had a big surprise for her. My dad bought a new car so they decided to give his little Mini Cooper to my sister. She was SO SHOCKED and excited!! It was so cute and sweet to see her face. The bummer is she broke her foot over a week ago and can’t drive it. :( But she’s excited needless to say!

We had a great time with Uncle Brad. Good thing he’s pretty buffed. ha.

Brandon had made plans for us to go to Petaluma {about 15 mins outside of Santa Rosa} and check out the Pirates Exhibit at the old library. Jake was sooo excited! He dressed up in his Jack Sparrow costume and about freaked out when he saw Jack greeting us in the front of the library, and so did Daddy.

Getting read too at the museum.

And my beautiful girl…we had coffee at a great little coffee shop called Acres. Evy got a cookie and milk. I LOVE her!! 

 I have just been thinking about my life and all of our blessings. After Brandon being gone nearly the entire month of November, I am happy to say his schedule is more light and local the month of December. I cannot express how wonderful it is to be together as a family. And more importantly, a family who is completely in God’s will. There is nothing better than knowing you are right where God wants you. It gives you SUCH peace. This Thanksgiving I gave thanks for what God has done in our lives and where is taking us. I can’t remember the last time I have felt this peaceful. Thank you Lord for taking care of us and for being our provider. We are beyond thankful!

Many blessings friends. Oh and do you love Evy’s Tree? There’s a couple more hours on this:

    I feel you on the "gone almost the entire month" part, but you're right…there is such peace being in the center of God's will. Amazingly, after awhile, you learn to appreciate those times of solitude…and then you appreciate even more the times you are together with your hubby. :-)
