We have so much to be thankful for - family, good friends, an opportunity to minister in a place that we call "home", etc. ----
We enjoyed a delicious meal, lots of conversation and an abundance of laughter together. What a great time we had!!
Arville didn't know whether he enjoyed the food or the conversation the most!!
Along with our Thanksgiving celebration (which we share with friends - wherever we happen to be -- because of all the American holidays, this one is unique), we also celebrated Maria's birthday. Maria is Brane and Margarita's "18 year-old daughter"!!! We cannot believe how quickly she has grown into a woman. It seems like yesterday that she was just 8 years old!!!

With Habibe, Agim, Sara and Jehona, we celebrated Maria's birthday, too. Habibe made her a beautiful birthday cake and we bought her a sweater for her birthday. Here are a few pictures of her birthday celebration:
