Hey everybody! I know it’s about 3 months late but I hope you enjoy some of the pictures from our family get together on Thanksgiving day this past year. Annie and I are truly blessed because both of our extended families live in the area so we get to hang out with a lot of our close relatives and eat a lot of great food. In fact we get thanksgiving meals with my family for lunch & then with Annie’s for dinner and I must say thanksgiving twice is nice! Annie and I are very thankful for all of the incredible friends and family we have in our lives and would like to say thank you to everyone who has thought about or prayed for us as we adjust to our new life as a family of three. Oliver just seems to be getting more and more of a personality each day and he makes us laugh all of time. We are extremely thankful for him and the new perspective he gives us each day and I can say honestly that I couldn’t have a better wife and friend than Annie. She never ceases to amaze me in the way that she cares for me and Oliver. Thank you God for these blessings :)  I pray I can grow to be a man who appreciates them always.

i am also very thankful for my family of three and all the extended support that we have around us!  we actually celebrated thanksgiving day with jon’s family and then celebrated with my family on friday.  my sister heidi – along with her hubby william and my nephew trey – joined us for the weekend to follow.  heidi had to work on thanksgiving, so they headed down from georgia after that.  for some reason, we didn’t take the time to take any official photos from my family thanksgiving dinner, but we had a marvelous time just the same and enjoyed having the hauns home for a few days!

Auntie Merle!!

back in the beginning of december, we had a special visit from my friend christine (who i like to call merle – her middle name), and with her she brought four of her friends.  she is in a masters program in philadelphia and was driving down to southern florida for a conference.  she asked if they could crash here on the way down or back up so that she could see us and finally meet oliver.  i was so excited to have the chance to see her, even if it was only a quick trip and offered the floor of our small condo for their sleeping accommodations.  i even offered under the dining room table if they needed more room!  while she was here, one of her friends, peter and i discovered that we had a commonality in the relationship to my sister and brother n law.  my sister and her family spent 3 months in ghana a couple years back working in a medical missions hospital during heidi’s fourth year of medical school.  peter’s father was the main doctor that heidi worked with and was the one to start the hospital many years ago.  i am pretty sure that discovery would have gone unnoticed if it weren’t for william’s photographs of ghana that we have on display in our living room (william is heidi’s hubby).  peter saw them and asked if i knew william haun.  i was a little confused by the question, because of course i know my own brother n law!  so, it was from there that we made the connection.  what a small world it really is and so random at times!  it was great to meet christine’s friends and of course to see my dear friend merle:).  it was a quick trip, but so wonderful to have that time with her and share the new adventures we both have in our lives.  it is such a blessing to have those friends that you can connect with on a deeper level, no matter how different your lives may be at the time.  so, here are a few photos of oliver meeting his auntie merle, his new friend peter and her other friends as well.
