Tomorrow our team will be celebrating Thanksgiving! I can't believe how much is being made. This is JUST the dessert list:

2 pumpkin pies
pecan pie
pumpkin cheesecake (made by yours truly)
lemon bars (also made by yours truly)
apple pie
and peanut butter balls

We are going to be stuffed! And it's going to be so much fun :) We are also having a sleep over at the Garsee's house which everyone is very excited about.

This is also going to be my first Thanksgiving away from home. I kept telling everyone that although we always celebrate this holiday at home, it never really has been a huge ordeal (except when we lived in NY with the rest of our extended family), so it wasn't really bothering me to be away from my family specifically for the holiday. But, now that the day is upon us I feel like I am constantly on the brink of tears! I miss my family more than ever right now. We have also be talking a lot about Christmas already and listening to Christmas music which is making me feel even more homesick. I am extremely thankful to be surrounded by a group of people that love me and understand my feelings about being away from my family. It doesn't take away all the pain though. Only the Lord can do that and I believe his grace is sufficient.

I hope and pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families! God bless you and thank you for your prayers!
