Our family had an incredible Thanksgiving, and having Magdalena with us casted a light, joyful spirit on our house. As both Halloween and Thanksgiving have passed I am amazed at the gift God has given us. I don't think that I will ever say that enough times....amazed. It isn't as though I thought God was incapable, but I guess that I began to count more on the statistics to rule the situation. I learned my lesson. God is the ultimate healer, and although I "knew" this before, God wanted me to trust it.
Noah's family came from out of town to celebrate the holiday with us, and it is one of the rare times that the entire Roberts clan was together. My mom was the ideal hostess who opened her home, helped prepare food, and so much more.
Magdalena is recovering from a little cold right now, which got better before it got worse. yay! And my ear seems to be healing well, and Noah is hanging in there while he finishes exams this week.
Of course, I must share pictures with you! I don't know if you noticed the large increase of pop tabs that we have gathered for the Ronald McDonald House. I keep an updated number on the sidebar. My nieces, Caroline and Emma, came over to help me count! As usual, a day with those two is always fun!
Last night I took this picture while Magdalena was fighting sleep. She is wearing her Christmas pjs that Mimi bought her, and they are in a big girl (newborn) size! She is about 8 pounds now!
