November has been a full month of activity for our family. In addition to Nate going to Costa Rica, we (Nate & Laura) were able to go to Delaware to be part of 2 weddings of our former youth group kids. Nate officiated one wedding and we were able to attend the other. Nathan was also able to share at Immanuel Church for a few moments on Sunday morning before flying back home later that day. It was wonderful to catch up with so many people we have missed since moving from Delaware to Costa Rica, and then to Florida over 5 years ago!
We are grateful that Nate's brother, Jason, was able to come from Michigan to watch the kids while we were away. They love their Uncle Jay so much!
A definite highlight was being with Laura's brother, Caleb, his wife Liz, and their boys, Eliott Finley, and 1 week old baby Harley!
We celebrated Malachi's 12th birthday on November 28th. Malachi continues to keep us on our toes and brings passion and excitement to our lives on a daily basis! Praying for God to continue to work in his life, and for wisdom for us as we parent him. God has big plans for him!
We were so blessed that Nate's parents were able to come from Michigan to spend Thanksgiving week with us. We treasure the time that we get to spend with our extended family!
Christmas is now just around the corner and we are filled with hope for all that the Lord will do in this next season. Praying that the God of peace fills your hearts with joy as you celebrate His birth this month.
