Happy Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving our family has so much to be thankful for. Matt and I are both in school and with that comes a lot of work to do. We are thankful to have wonderful parents to help out with cooking supper, spending time with Hunter (we really have to beg them to do this), and etc. so that Matt and I can do schoolwork. We have all been in good health lately besides the normal sinus and cold stuff that is going around. We have a roof over our head and food on the table. These are things that most people take for granted but our family doesn't. With Matt not working because nursing school is a full-time job, a lot of people question how we are making ends meet. We simply answer, "With the Grace of God". God has been so good to us and has never let us do without. We know that times are going to be tough for the next couple of years but he provides us with the essentials that we actually NEED and not just WANT. Happy Thanksgiving from the Brannen's!

Boys are supposed to be dirty

Matt and his dad had to cut up some wood for his parents to burn in their fire place. Hunter was so excited to get to ride the BullDog through the woods to where we needed to be to cut up the wood. While the men worked, we played! Hunter loved gathering all of the rocks and putting them in a pile, then taking each rock and putting it back in its place, then doing it all over again. (he is very easily amused) His favorite thing is getting dirty.... There was some soft red dirt/mud (yes red dirt.... gotta love getting that out of clothes) and he realized that we can draw and dig in that dirt. He would get his stick dirty and wipe it on his pants just to get them dirty. He is definitely ALL boy and I love every moment of it. I wish I would have gotten a more pictures, but we dug a picture of a cross and he just sat there and listened as I told him about the cross and the significance of it. I'm not sure that he understood me, but he knows what I was telling him was important and one day it will sink in. I never take any moment with this little guy for granted.......
