"Live" Thanksgiving from Haiti

I Thought it would be fun this year to do a "live" update of our Thanksgiving. Being so far away from family, I often think throughout the day "I wonder what they are doing right now". I thought this would be a fun way to stay connected to Nana, Grandpa, Jake, Kacey, Travis and Kerderns this Thanksgiving day. 
So, as we go about our Thanksgiving celebration today I'll be posting photos as they happen. 
Hope you enjoy this little peek into our Haiti Thanksgiving. 
Right now it's 6:00am. I am awake way too early and thinking back on how LITTLE Annabel was last year! My little turkey, Thanksgiving 2012: 

7:15am Started getting the Christmas decorations up. Annabel is jumping out of her skin excited.

9:40am Coloring Thanksgiving pictures 

10:00am Borrowed the neighbors stove to heat water for a much needed and long overdue bath

10:35am Bath time

11:15am Snack to hold us over until turkey time.

12:00pm Annie is dressed and ready to celebrate!

12:30pm Arrived at GLA and I officially stopped remembering to take pictures, like completely! We were able to spend a good long time skyping with everyone back in The States which was a huge blessing. We did some crafts with some of the older babies in the nurseries, had a blast cooking up a storm with great friends and ate as much as our bellies could hold. Thankfully our friend Molly shared some of her photos from the afternoon with us. 

We are so blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you so much for welcoming us into your Haitian Thanksgiving. What a blessing to see your little treasure Annie - what a dolly!

I know, from my Emma, what a trying thing it is to live so away from family. Thankful for your to obedient love that forsakes all for the sake of the cross. May God continue to pour out His blessings on your life -a bazillion fold!
