This is the second year that we've spent an afternoon carving pumpkins with the kids in Mexico. Last year, we took a weekend trip to Mexico with our friends Zack and Amber. This year, they came to visit us since we now live here. We added in a pumpkin painting activity which was a huge hit. I love getting to form these traditions with the children in our village and am already excited to do Christmas here for the first time!

Today I'm linking with my girlfriends Amy and Erin for Thankful Thursdays, which I was lucky enough to be able to design the linkup button for! I love these girls and their giant Jesus-loving hearts. I tend to forget about reading directions until after I've done the work, so I didn't list 5 things I'm thankful for like I was supposed to. I think they'll forgive me ;)

What are you thankful for today? Go here or here and linkup with us so we can delight in the gifts God gives us, together.
