Thanksgiving Blessings!

Here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving at my father-in-law's sports bar. We were so blessed to have my sister, Anj, come down from northern Cali to spend time with us as well as the rest of the family that are here.
We ate to our hearts content and were so stuffed by the time dinner came around. Aunty Rose even made some Filipino food (Penakbet) to accompany the turkey and stuffing! Yummy!

Learning about Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We pray that you would have many things to be thankful for this year!

We are learning about Thanksgiving this week and I decided to have them do crafts. JP is Squanto, the Native American who helped the Pilgrims and taught them how to survive in the new world. And Gracie is his beautiful sidekick! You should read more on Squanto and how God worked in his life prior to the Pilgrims coming.

Creativity for the Harvest Carnival

We took JP and Grace C. to our church's harvest festival a few days ago. I didn't intend on dressing them up, but Vanessa and Gen found a few things laying around the house and made these costumes. We did buy posterboard, but we didn't really need it. Gen did all the artistic work except for the red lines on the straw. My beautiful wife is responsible for the beautiful red lines. Pretty creative costumes, eh?!

JP's B-day and Daddy's Surprises

Two weeks ago we celebrated JP's fourth b-day. To our dismay we found out that we didn't have enough b-day candles. We just had two singles and two number two candles, so we got a little creative. It worked out pretty well. It turned out we had enough candles after all, and with JP being older, he also got a little math lesson.
2 + 2 = 4
That same day, JP wasn't the only one who got a surprise, but daddy got two surprises; a J-O-B and a little car trouble. Niel got the job just in time too, because after he accepted the job, he jumped into his car and it didn't start! He ended up staying in the parking lot for the AAA guys. A little embarassing, but it's times like these you know God is there... God provided us a great family, a car [that can be fixed], and a job [to get the car fixed]. Thank all for your prayers and support!

God is good.
