The day after Thanksgiving just made this year even better because we had the chance to get on the computer and skype with my entire family. All of the kids were together at my parents house and they brought us up on the big screen tv. We got to be there to pick names for Christmas as well as do a little program with the Johnson family. My dad had us come up with something we are thankful for that we never thought we would be thankful for. That was an interesting list and we had some good laughs (I was thankful to not live on the beach anymore). It was amazing to be there with them even while being so far away. It was so fun to see all the neices and nephews, the dog and of course all of the adults. We love our families and missing out on the holidays is hard, but skype makes it a LOT better than it could be.

This year we have so much to be thankful for. We are so very blessed and we are reminded of that daily. Thanksgiving definitely made us SO excited to be coming home in just three weeks for the holidays!
