More November Blessings

Bob and I made a quick trip south to participate in Paige's blessing at church.  We decided to drive down on Sunday morning and left here a little after 5:00 a.m.  We were there just after 9:00 a.m., so we have found the perfect time of day to make that drive!  No Seoul traffic!  Sacrament Meeting was well attended for the small Korean Branch, but with Ben's parents, sister and us, we still came close to doubling their attendance.  Grandpa Johnson was asked to speak in church at the last minute, and it was a nice meeting.  Paige certainly filled out that little blessing dress better than tiny Emma did.

 Of course, after church we had to have a little photo session with our beautiful girls!


Monday, Bob went to work at the plant and Ben returned to work.  So the rest of us took a little walk through a bamboo forest on the island.  Emma and I took a "great tumble" while running down the path.  Thankfully, nothing was hurt but my pride (and perhaps Emma's memory of "big falls").  The views of the bay were stunning and we enjoyed a fun day in the bamboo.  It reminded me of building obstacle courses out of bamboo grown in our backyard in Provo when I was a child.

 We returned to Seoul on Tuesday and took the Johnsons to the airport.  Thursday was Thanksgiving, but for Bob and I, it was celebrated all month long and our prayers of gratitude are plentiful.  Opting for a simple celebration, that evening after work (it wasn't a holiday for Bob's Korean Company), we drove over to Seoul Club to stuff ourselves with turkey and cranberry sauce, prime rib, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, rolls, corn, sweet potatoes, salads, and all of our traditional favorites.  But the buffet also included all you could eat seafood, Korean food, and their typical flavorless desserts.  Good thing I had a homemade chocolate French Silk pie waiting for us at home.  What's not to be Thankful for?!
