We are grateful

We are grateful for:
  • Storytime and fun games like parachutes.

  • two energetic children who keep us busy every day
  • one sweet girl in heaven who we'll see someday
  • one little man still baking (but there is a countdown on!)

  • This funny turkey

  • and this one too.
  • great dinners where you eat too much and then go back for more before you're really hungry.
  • the twinkling lights of our beautiful Christmas tree.  It's been decorated by kids and it's so not perfect and I love it
  • family.  Even if we can't spend this day with them, we are grateful for them.  All of them.
  • a warm house that is more than we need
  • A God who blesses us beyond measure.
Happy Thanksgiving.  We love you all!

Quote of the week

Gracie: "Did you hear my quiet toot?"


Randomness Part 2

How cute is this?  I want to make this for our little guy.  Maybe a canvas to hang up for the holidays?
This was two weeks ago so-35weeks?  Feeling low, but I don't think he's ready to come out yet!
Graham loves these two things at my friend Jessica's.  Her girls' head lamp and their little trampoline.
Our Ace Hardware does a ladies day every year.  They have venders come and set up tables and have giveaways and GREAT food.  It's a little weird to go in their back room and sit at their (for sale) patio furniture to eat but my friend Kelsey and I have gone every year.  This year she couldn't go as she had a baby girl the night before!  So I went and took a picture for her. :)
We always do an annual cinnamon roll extravaganza with my friends but this year, with the baby coming so close to Christmas and Jodi now cannot eat gluten we decided to switch it up.  We did a little crafting!
Jodi's craft was these cute frame wreaths.  Mine is the green one that needs a bow.
We also made peanut butter hot fudge sauce (and it is SO SO good!)
Homemade brownie mixes (some of you MAY be getting one of these this year. ha!)
Jo's craft was this cute tree.  I loved how they all turned out.

We started a countdown to baby chain! (there are more chain links than shown, fyi)
You cannot substitute one of these for the other when making oatmeal.  Another FYI. :)
My boys.
I made this frame wreath with my friends a few weeks ago and Shirley helped me with the bow.  LOVE it!
Hugs in front of the Christmas tree!

Here are some fun Halloween pics!  We went to our church's trunk or treat with the Gernands.  Gracie has a princess outfit but wanted to wear the size 2 dinosaur of Grahams.  ha!
painting pumpkins.
I did not have the energy to carve pumpkins with the kids and they are just as happy to paint them so it's a win win!
Superman and a good witch getting ready to head out for trick or treating!
Grandma Shirley came up so she got to go with us!
And, seriously, do you see ALL this candy!?!
It was out of control!  We ALL (cough, cough) ate our share and still have a lot left!

"Tom, Now is the time to worship!"

This sweet little video shows our big boy singing one of his favorite songs!  He, however will correct you, if you try to say "come, now is the time to worship".  It is apparently, a song, meant only for Tom. :)   Either way, I love hearing Graham singing praises to God and I KNOW it makes the Lord's heart happy!

Dear Everybody

I hope you're having a lovely day.  But yesterday at November 5, my tooth is gone.  And guess what?  My mommy tried to wiggle it a little bit as she always does but instead when she was about to do it, POP! it came out.
