NIPTO, Day 291

Happy Thanksgiving, readers! I'll have a whole post about what I'm thankful for coming up :)
Today. Has been great. Got up around nine... watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and ate breakfast of home made cinnamon rolls and mint hot chocolate!

The making of the cinnamon rolls last night
yum yum yum

All rolled up!


It looks delectable. I know you want one. 

It was soooo good.
We sat at the table and talked for a long time. Cleaned up from breakfast, got ready for the day. Then Dad and I went out to find a news paper so we could look at the Black Friday Ads. Annnd so we came home and did that and watched part of The Dog Show. 

Here's a random silly picture of Katie and me. She's goofy.
All threee of us. Uhm. Are we sure we're sisters? Because we really don't look alike.
 We brought up all of the Christmas stuff from the basement and then Katie, Hannah, Dad, and I went on a walk while Mom cooked and cooked and cooked (or waited for stuff to cook...).

Birds nest in a tree that I thought was cool lookin'
When we got home it was almost time to eat, but not quite. So we put up the Christmas tree! In 11 minutes. Oh yeah, we're beast.

Katie and Hannah spreading "branches"

You can see where the holes that need to be filled in are...

Mashed potatoes&gravy, turkey, Sweet potato fries, and stuffing. And peas. But I didn't have peas on my plate at this point.
Along with crescent rolls and jam. And homemade applesauce. It was all delicious!

Such good food! So we cleaned up. Some of us. Others took a nap. ;)
Mom, Katie, and Hannah went on a walk. And now Katie and Hannah are watching a video...
And I'm blogging.
So life is good. :)

Ruth 2:19-23

19 Her mother-in-law asked her, “Where did you glean today? Where did you work? Blessed be the man who took notice of you!”
   Then Ruth told her mother-in-law about the one at whose place she had been working. “The name of the man I worked with today is Boaz,” she said.

When Ruth got home, her mother-in-law, Naomi, asked where she had worked and gleaned that day because she had a lot of grain! Ruth told her where she had been working. With Boaz. Boo yahhhhh.

 20 “The LORD bless him!” Naomi said to her daughter-in-law. “He has not stopped showing his kindness to the living and the dead.” She added, “That man is our close relative; he is one of our guardian-redeemers.”
 21 Then Ruth the Moabite said, “He even said to me, ‘Stay with my workers until they finish harvesting all my grain.’”

Naomi asked the Lord to bless him. She was so grateful that Boaz would show kindness to Ruth. Ruth had no idea that Boaz was a close relative, a guardian, of theirs. Ruth told her that Boaz had told her to stay with his workers until they finished harvesting all of the grain.

 22 Naomi said to Ruth her daughter-in-law, “It will be good for you, my daughter, to go with the women who work for him, because in someone else’s field you might be harmed.”
 23 So Ruth stayed close to the women of Boaz to glean until the barley and wheat harvests were finished. And she lived with her mother-in-law.

Naomi told Ruth that it would be good to work for him because she would be safe. If she worked somewhere else, she might get hurt/be harmed.
So Ruth just stayed close to the women who gleaned in Boaz's field until the barley and whete were all harvested. All during this time she lived with her mother-in-law. 

And now I'm off to decorate a Christmas tree!
