Sonya, recognize the shirt? :) Underneath Kimmie's apron she has on just her panties...it was so cute!

Why is it that seeing Santa always brings tears to my eyes? I just love him! And so did Kimmie and Quan!
I had to put this pic in. Colby is totally trying to make sure Santa knows just which video game he wants for Christmas. HILARIOUS!
Go Springville Tigers U-10 boys! 2nd place in the Governor's Cup in Decatur, AL. Great coaching, Jason and Kurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What fun to finally meet Katie Lin Hodge and her sweet mommy, daddy and brothers! We have been following their blog ever since we decided to adopt, as a matter of fact, their story was a confirmation from God that we were on the right path, too!

This Thanksgiving my heart is overflowing with gratitude to God for all He has done for me and my family this year.
We have brought home our two little cabooses from China, with the prayers and financial help from all of you.
God has expanded our friendship circle to include so many other adoptive families who have been of great encouragement!
He has stretched our faith and shown Himself to us so huge this year!
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

you are right, we have so much to be thankful for. it reminds me of this jeremy camp song...

"I know that I’ve been,
Given more than beyond measure,
I come alive when,
I see beyond my fears
I know that I’ve been given more than earthly treasure,
I come alive when
I’ve broken down and given you control"

hope the ferrills have a WONDERFUL thanksgiving. love, jamie

You do have so much to be thankful for! We love Katie Lin too. I love all the photos. So great that the two little ones would actually sit with Santa. Ana Claire did the first Christmas she was home. Last year she wanted no part of him and she has informed me this year No Santa. I hated that we couldn't meet you when you come down. We will have to try again.
I hope your family has a great Thanksgiving as you celebrate having the two little ones home.

I'm so thankful that God has brought all our families together!
Have a blessed and wonderful holiday. We love you guys!

happy thanksgiving Laine! You are so blessed this Thanksgiving. Two little darlings at your table that were not there last year. How blessed. Quan looks so grown up in his pic with his brothers! and hansome of course~
Love Connie

PS Caitlyn says she does not like Santa :(
We saw him at Publix and she said I no like chismas.
I hope she changes her mind. I think I am going to try letting her see that Chloe loves him and see if that will make a dif.

Happy Thanksgiving, Ferrill family! I'm so thankful that I have gotten to "cyber-know" you this past year!

What precious pictures with Santa. Madison still won't go see Santa by herself, only with her cousins. Like you said, I too have sooooo much to be thankful for this year and even more before it's over with. One thing I am especially thankful for is you and your family. You have done more for us than you'll ever know, encouragment in sooo many ways it's amazing. I know God brought you all into our lives for a wonderful reason. Thank you just for being "you"! Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you are feeling much better!
