Give Thanks & The Epps {Central Florida Photographer}

Today is Thanksgiving....turkey day....and ham, potatoes, gravy, rolls, macaroni & cheese....can you tell we're big on the carbs here?? Yes, the day for all of this but most importantly, giving thanks. :) We are so thankful to God for everything He's given us. We are thankful for all of the things He's showing to us and teaching us......sometimes I wish we had all of the answers right away but that isn't the way He works. :)

I've been trying to get to finishing up the Epp's family pictures - they were here WEEKS ago visiting and I am just FINALLY catching up on them! These guys are just wonderful people. :) They are also missionaries with NTM and we met them in Bible School & the Missionary Training Center that we attended in England. A bit over a year later we all went our seperate ways and hadn't seen each other in over 7 years. They've lived in the Philippines for a few of those years, moved back to Canada for health issues and are now planning to move back to the Philippines in January. It was so special to spend some time with them - meet their family (Thea, the oldest, was about 4 months old when we last saw her!) and reminisce together.

They are now very close with my sister and her family - having all lived near each other in the Philippines - and also with another sister of mine, Joanna, because she moved in with them for about 6 months a couple of years ago (in the Philippines) to help out with the kids and be a help to Char as their youngest was just brand new. Totally different living with kids and a brand new baby in a tribal - VERY REMOTE - location than doing it here in the States. :)

Ahh...long story short, we were SO THANKFUL to be able to see them again and catch up...and I was so excited to photograph their family! I wanted to share a few because, honestly, we just love these guys. Can't say enough wonderful things about them. :)
