Happy Thanksgiving from The Sisemore's!! I have so been bad with this blog :( Even if nobody is reading it, it is a scrapbook of our life and now there are BIG gaps. What was I thinking :( There is so much I need to update but for today I will just share Thanksgiving!! If you are reading along PLEASE comment and let me know!! I so miss the old days of blogging in so many ways! Anyway here you have Thanksgiving 2013 in pics! :)
Watching the parade this morning!
Noah was beside himself with excitement over Santa Claus in the parade!! :)
What a day it was! My stove has been out for over a year and I have worn out several other type cooking items in that time but we had everything figured out to make all the food today we needed and then BAM electricity in my kitchen went out. Well not the entire kitchen. We had lights and the stove that is broke had power! IRONIC huh! but all the outlets to plug things in are gone and the fridge outlet gone. No clue why :( A friends hubby came to try and help and was not able to figure it out but he brought extension cords so we cooked with things plugged in other rooms and run to the roasters and then we had a small roaster on a card table in the living room. It was one handed down and I burned myself pretty bad on it. By the hardest we finally got our meal made!! We had turkey, cornbread dressing, green bean casserole, gravy, rolls, and stuffed eggs.
Noah pointing at the mini Chocolate pies he helped make :) We also had bakery pumpkin pie and bakery pecan pie tarts. Did not try baking this year with so little things to cook in.
My handsome boys!!! :)
So thankful for my amazing frogie boy!!!! His smile lights up a room!!! I love how he loves me!!! and how he loves God!!! I sit and watch his face sometimes at Church!! That boy sees things that we just do not see and I believe he is closer to God than any of us!!!! I am honored the Lord allowed me to be his mom!!! I feel in so many ways that I fail this baby boy and the Lord but I will spend my life trying to give all I can for him and savor every second I have with him!!!

Thankful for my sweet Panda!!! This boy so has my heart!!! When I was going through surgery and such a hard time wanting babies with my sweet hubby it was spoken over me that the Lord said she will have the child of her heart! And oh my I so do in this boy!! He challenges me to my core at times and I have had to learn so much in order to be the best mom I can to this boy but oh my he has my heart!! I learned so much about myself and God in our journey to adopting Noah! I never knew before that I could fall in love with a child I had never even met and do anything it took to help that child! I am so thankful God called us to Taiwan and to my Panda Boy. Noah I love you with all my heart!!

Me and my girl!!! I so love this beautiful child!!! She is the one that made me what I always wanted to be, a mommy!!! I look at her and am so amazed by the woman of God she is! She is so brave, so smart, so beautiful, so loving, and so Jesus with skin on for so many!! She also has a way of getting me to laugh so hard sometimes!! She usuallly can get me to laugh even in bad times! :)

I adore this man!!!! I am so thankful for him!!! He brought such love to my life and he shared my vision and dream of adopting and orphan ministry!! As he prayed today over our meal I looked from face to face of those who are now in my life that would not have been had God not blessed me with Bobby and my children! God is so good!!!
