thanksgiving with our awesome friends

We were lucky enough to have our amazing friends come and visit us this thanksgiving. The Swintons drove all the way from Washington D.C. and we loved every minute of it. We filled our time with a lot of game playing and food eating. Once Danny gets a few pictures off his phone and up here you can see more of the great time we had. Jenna made pecan pie and we had the typical feast, with turkey (that magically turned out) potatoes, corn and green beans, oh and stuffing too.

We also went to the Louisville Slugger museum which did not disappoint, I definitely recommend it to all that ever visit Louisville. We also went on a date without the children (I love getting to go on dates) We went to Harry Potter and can't wait to see the next one.

Por Fin (Finally)

-Applied 3 years
-Took the DAT 3 times
-Interviewed at 6 schools
-Placed on 3 waiting lists
-Moved my family across the country
-Spent $10,000 on applications and fees
-Received countless prayers and fasts in my behalf
-Have seen a number of tender mercies
-Realized that we have been blessed with the most amazing friends and family who support and help us every step of the way

And what do I have to show for it....

Last night at 12:02 AM, I was accepted as a member of the class of 2015 at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. It has still not set in, but figuratively, and to tell you the truth quite literally, a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Behind my wife, daughter, family, and friends, this is the greatest blessing that Heavenly Father has ever given me. I am so grateful and excited for this next stage of my life. Thank you all so much for your love, thoughts, prayers, fasts, and support. I really appreciate it. GO CARDINALS!
