We did manage to make it up to our church, The Ark, and volunteer to help prepare meals for the 16,000 people they would be feeding during the Thanksgiving outreach. This was when Chase was starting to feel better and when Emery was starting to go downhill. Since Emery is still tiny, she hung with Nana while Duchess, Chase, Madison, and I went to volunteer. I'm pretty sure that we made about a 1,000 pounds of green bean casserole! Here's to new family traditions!!
1) new traditions
2) all our blessings
3) realizing that there are others we can bless by helping
5) teachable moments
