Thanksgiving Aunties’ Time

Aunt Anna and Aunt Mary wanted to have a special thanksgiving tea with the girls Monday.

After A, B, and C came over, the first item of business was to fix hair in braids, and Aunt Mary donned a little cap–maybe similar to the colonial ladies?



Each girl chose a tea flavor. A straw works really well to consume it with.DSC_5072

What a beautiful joy it is to give God thanks! Oh, and you’ll see a post from the entire family tomorrow ;)–working on that now.


“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise:
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”
Psalms 100:4

  3. We had Thanksgiving in Canada in October, but I am still thankful for your ministry!

    Anna, Mary and Sarah are such good aunts, I’m sure Abigail, Bethany and Tina love spending time with you three!

  4. I noticed the lists of things you were thankful for, and thought I’d share my family’s tradition. Each year, we trace our hand with our fingers together (looks like a silhouette of praying hands) on construction paper. Then we write all the things we are thankful to God for and laminate them when we finish. It is very neat to go back through our hands that we did when we very young and not only see how our hands grew but to remind us of what we were thankful for. When we were unable to write, our parents wrote for us on one side, and we “drew” on the other side.
