On the way to Las Nubes, we discussed the origin of Thanksgiving and and asked the kids what they were thankful for this year. Andrew said he was thankful for the end of school (which was yesterday). Ella said she was thankful for family and spicy food. Noah said he was thankful for 'homeschooling' (which he will be starting next semester...a story for another blogpost).
Being that I really despise touching raw meat and doing the whole turkey thing, we bought a rotisserie chicken, cranberry sauce, sub-rolls, stuffing and made sandwiches. I did actually bake a pumpkin pie...so thankful for the miracle of finding a can of Libby's Pumpkin in the grocery store along with a ready-made crust...a VERY rare find!
There are truly so many things to be thankful for...I am beyond thankful for my husband and children. Yet, above all...I am thankful for how God loves us more than we will ever comprehend. It is amazing.
Enjoy some snapshots from our Thanksgiving Day in Nicaragua.
