He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

Day 106

November 28, 2016

It's a fleece leggings and house shoes, computer and calendar in my lap, kind of day!  Unfortunately still down with fever but hoping that will change by tomorrow!  Girls still being oh so helpful- bringing me hot tea, washing the dishes, making dinner...  Thankful in spite of being sick!

Day 105

November 27, 2016

Unfortunately I went to bed last night with fever, and well, pretty much never got out of the bed on this day!  Therefore, no pictures.  Thankful for my family who can function in the midst of my sickness and keep everything in the house under control!

Day 104

November 26, 2016

Another relaxing day of movie watching, game playing and crafting.  Naomi and Anabelle made Christmas trees out of paper and cotton balls.  Maddie made a snow globe for Anabelle and big girls headed to the mall for an afternoon movie.  Biggest news- at the end of the day, we figured out how to make Netflix work.  Great news for those who are oh so anxious to watch the newest Gilmore Girls!  It's a lesson in patience though as we are waiting for some friends to finish so we can watch it together!  We did sneak in the first of the four though!

Checking out her new crafting supplies...

Day 103

November 25, 2016

The day after Thanksgiving is lazy day around our house!  It was also Annie's last day.  We played some games, watched some movies and ate lots and lots of Thanksgiving leftovers and junk food, and of course, lots of cuddles with Annie.  All in all, a great day!

Day 102

November 24, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!  Was a little different for us this year for several reasons- Annie was with us-YAY!  We don't ever have visiting family for Thanksgiving.  Also, I really think since we've moved overseas we've kept our girls home from school on Thanksgiving- it's just kind of been a thing.  Since Thanksgiving is, after all, a very American holiday, it is virtually ignored over here so we do what we can to make it special.  This year though, with Abbey and Maddie at a different, more American school, they were decorating the school for christmas on Thanksgiving day and it was a "fun day"- competition between the classes, bake sale, very little work etc.  So they went to school this year and Naomi and Anabelle stayed home.  Anyway, we headed to some friends house for our feast this year. As Annie said on her instagram post, "over the mountain and through the wadi to the Adams house we go."   

Day 101

November 23, 2016

It's the annual day before Thanksgiving cooking day.  So thankful to have Annie with us this year!  We made dressing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, pie crusts, 2 pumpkin pies, homemade rolls, broccoli salad and here Maddie is working on a new fave1 maple bacon tarts.  Yummy!

Day 100

November 22, 2016

Since Jason was already gone, and I was only with Annie 24 hours before I left for the states, we didn't have time for our Middle Eastern meal with her.  We had to wait until we both got back.  And then it was time to feast!  It's not Lebanon, but it's still yummy....
