Giving Thanks

So much to be thankful for this thanksgiving evening..... 2 healthy children, a wonderful man to share my life with, a warm home, an inspiring church to attend, what more can we ask for?

So here we are at our big "feast"! (ignore the date on the photos)

Started the day watching the Macy's parade, had a nice dinner, some pumpkin pie, and now the kids are watching the Incredibles. Hope your thanksgiving was just as "uneventful" as ours. Take time to thank God for all the blessings in your life! The fact that you take the time to check on us here and read about what we are doing tells us that you are a blessing in our life.

Thanksgiving fun!

Power team

Our church just hosted the "power team" for a weeks long event. These guys can do some cool things (at least the kids think so) Here is one guy breaking 9 blocks of ice with his head! Two guys had a contest to see who could blow up a hot water bottle and have it explode the fastest. You know "cool stuff like that. Here's Cody and his brother Kenny getting ready to enjoy the show.

BIG 13!!!!!!!!!!

Today was Cody's 13th birthday! Yikes now we have a teenager on our hands! Here he is with all his "loot". He wanted the radio control plane, so that's from Mom and Dad. The clothes and CD were from Aunt Martha, and the books and game he bought with money Aunt Ruth, Uncle Tim and family sent.
He could chose from any resturant around to go to and for some reason he picked "exotic" Bob Evans! But the food was good and I didn't have to cook so it was a good night.
Big 13... He 's been a bit uptight this week. He said he's in that inbetween where he doesn't know if he's a kid or if he should be more grown up. It's confusing for all of us. we've never been the parents of teenagers before. Pray for all of us!
