All Things Fall

All set up to be thankful...

The party favors- homemade pumpkin butter! It doesn't get better than that.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes- better than Starbucks 

Pumpkin Pancakes

Carving Peppers

Last week we got together with some friends in honor of Fall and all things pumpkin. We had pumpkin pancakes (that I made from scratch- yes, I consider it from scratch even with that can of pumpkin pie mix!), biscuits and gravy, pumpkin spice lattes, apple crisp, and carving peppers. I can't think of much that is better than a combination of all things listed above. Major sugar overload but worth every bite! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

We are thankful to be able to hold onto some of these fun American traditions- even in the Middle East. Thankful for friends to do it with and the way things taste that much better when they are a special treat!

We Have So Very Much To Be Thankful For

Those sheep totally photo-bombed me!

I wonder if on that first Thanksgiving they knew- if they knew what that day would become. A world-wide holiday celebrating our thankfulness to God. But they couldn't have. They couldn't have known that so many of us would LOVE this team of year. The changing of the trees, the cooling of the weather, the obsession with all things pumpkin. They couldn't have know that around this time of year there would be a natural thankfulness in our hearts. They just looked at what God had done and they said THANK YOU! With a feast. I love it.

So today as I look around me I feel the same. Thankfulness to God for the place He has brought me to, the people He has put around me, and for the marvelous way He has made this world with the changing of the seasons. 

We truly do have so very much to be thankful for!
