What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Going Home

We were discharged from the hospital on Thanksgiving~ so no hospital turkey, after all.

We ended up going straight to Matt's parents' house to get "real food" without the work~we stopped by our house only long enough to grab a few diapers, a blanket and Motrin.

It was a LONG day~ we didn't get home until around 7:30. I didn't do a lick, and the children were great, but by the end of the day I was exhausted.

I struggled too, knowing that I was missing the van der Jagt Thanksgiving.

Emotional and physical exhaustion. What a combination! :-)

As you can see by these photos, Bunkin's handmade going home outfit DID end up getting coordinated booties and a hat.

So happy I got it done in time, and yet: in the grand scheme of things~it doesn't matter worth a lick. She is just as cute NAKED.

In fact, maybe even CUTER.
