Yes, this is the time of the year when one {usually} has a moment to reflect on the things that one is thankful for. 
It is because of this moment that I've decided to join the world of blogging again.
I'm not making any promises...this may be the next "WHES" post {ahem...Gramie} that stays here for more than 1/2 a year!  But, in case I get some more reflective moments, I wanted to START in an attempt to catch all of you up with some of my blessings from this year.

The first {possibly the last} of this string of God's many blessings is about the same thing that I shared at the Thanksgiving table this year.
*Yes, someone other than me asked for everyone to go around and share one thing this year that we were thankful for, and I said..... FAMILY!

Throughout this year we've both been able to see our parents twice...and we have one more trip planned before the beginning of the new year!

We saw the Bolivian side when we visited them this summer...

..and again this month when the padres came to the states for a conference and stayed a little longer:)!

This little member of the family was the "star of the show" with her expanding vocabulary and precious antics!

We were able to see my parents in June when they came to visit us here in the DC area...

 What a little treat when we talked with my mom's former sorority sister {and Alaskan Senator},  Lisa Murkowski!
 ..and then in August when we all went to a favorite place {Sunriver, Oregon} to celebrate Gramie's 80th birthday!!

One highlight of our time together was a yo-yo competition between all of the men...and guess who's man won?!:)

God has truly blessed Esteban and I with SO MANY BLESSINGS this year, especially times with the people we love the most.
