From Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary (which has more biblical definitions than any other dictionary)

THANKSGIV'ING, n. The act of rendering thanks or expressing gratitude for favors or mercies.

Every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if received with thanksgiving. 1 Tim.4.

1. A public celebration of divine goodness; also, a day set apart for religious services, specially to acknowledge the goodness of God, either in any remarkable deliverance from calamities or danger, or in the ordinary dispensation of his bounties. The practice of appointing an annual thanksgiving originated in New England.

I hope you all paused for Thanksgiving to celebrate His goodness.

As we celebrated, I tried out a new recipe. Apple pie. Yummmm. Can you get any more American than apple pie? Nope. I found the recipe here. To say it turned out good would be an understatement. It was delicious to everyone that ate it. A few tips to take note of in case you decide to make it... DO double the crust recipe as it suggests. Also, I didn't have cider vinegar on hand so I used white vinegar but only used 2 tsp instead of 1 tbsp.

Now... here it is... along with my sous chef...

It's Fall Y'all

We've been busy around here with tons of Fall festivities. We've been to festivals, to the zoo with friends, trick or treating, and just hanging out here at the house.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of the kids over the past few weeks.
