Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We hope that everyone enjoys the time that they get to spend with their family. We have so many things to be grateful for this year. This is Kaityn's first thanksgiving complete with a "Vegetable Turkey Dinner" and "Tutti Frutti Dessert". She enjoyed her meal. Our thanksgiving celebration began Wednesday night. We went to a "camp ground" with my brother and sister-in-law Lindsay. Her family every year goes and cooks out and stays in a cabin...notice I said "a" cabin. That's right everyone stays in one place...all 35 - 40 of them. However, we did not stay in the cabin. It was fun to be with all of our friends and extended family. Thanksgiving day was spent with my family. As we sat around the table we talked, ate and laughed. I was reminded of how blessed I am. As I think about the past two days, I have alot to be grateful for. I have a new sister-in-law (who is a perfect addition to our family), a new daughter, a great husband, wonderful kids, and a heritage of people who love each other and love the Lord.

Kaibryn Turns Five

Time sure has flown by. This past Saturday was Kaibryn's fifth birthday. The day was filled with excitement. We started off the morning with a birthday party with four of her friends from church. She had alot of fun. We made "princess wands" and had a lunch of heart shaped PBJ's, chips, and apples and dip along with cupcakes. She picked out the menu. When we were first talking about what she wanted to eat she wanted "salad." I don't know of many kids who ask that their birthday meal be salad. We finished off the evening with a "family" birthday party. It was fun to get everyone together to celebrate her big day. All day she kept asking, "Is it still my birthday?" It was a great day and also a long day. We'll do it again next year :) :)

My Babies

We are so blessed!!!!!

The Voices of Children

Last night Christopher and Kaibryn's choir sang in the evening service. It was so sweet. They sang their little hearts out and did all the motions with huge smiles on their faces. I love to hear children sing (especially mine). It is something that I know the Lord looks down on and smiles and gives Him a happy heart.
