We had a great Thanksgiving meal at Jim's sister's house. It included both sets of our family in one big meal. A tradition at Jenni's house is to trace our hands on the tablecloth each year. I sat next to Jim's hand from last year and put my hand and Margo's next to his. We have SO much to be thankful for!

Margo's first church service was this past Sunday. God sure does have impeccable timing - it was Jim's first time in the pulpit giving a Sunday sermon! Jim's sermon was on our dependence on God - which Jim and I have put into practice a LOT through the pregnancy and now arrival of Margo. Both sets of parents came to support Jim and hear him preach.

Bernie and Eileen sent an adorable frame that matches Margo's room perfectly. I just had to post it on our blog! :) We are so thankful for all the support and prayers and are blown away by our family and friends as they have helped welcome Margo to the world! Jim and I are so very grateful for you all!

Our neighbor gave us a pair of polka-dot leggings so now Margo is all polka-dotted out with blanket, onesie, burp cloth, receiving blanket, and leggings - although I did tone it down with the solid gray dress! She's gonna think her vision is going and she's seeing spots and not that her mommy wants her to look stylish!
Margo sleeps next to our bed in a Moses basket. She likes feeling bundled up but loves to throw her hands over her head as she sleeps.
My friend Carrie sent a Willow Tree figurine. Margo's favorite place seems to be in my arms so we took a picture to resemble the figurine.

Margo had a busy first week full of visitors from those who have been praying for her arrival.
Nana (Ashley's Mom) and Grandma (Jim's Mom) both spent a few days in town with Margo
Dori and June from Ashley's work came by the first day that Margo arrived home!
Miss Sheilah Stetson and David and Julie Gentino came by too but we can't believe we forgot to take pictures of their time with us!
We are so grateful to all those who have prayed and continue to pray for our family. We are so encouraged by your support and thankful for God's faithfulness to give us a precious gift in Margo Grace!
