Sydney's Tree of Thanks

Sydney always brings us the best crafts after her time in Sunday School on Sunday. Yesterday's craft was my favorite of all time.

I hope you can see the words that she asked her teachers to fill in on the leaves of her "tree of thanks."

Oh, sweet & precious child, we are so thankful for you too!

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

In the event...

that you see our Christmas tree this year, and wonder:

Do they realize that some of their ornaments are backwards? Why are most all of the ornaments on the bottom 3 feet of the tree?

I'll go ahead and let you know that the sweetest little elf you'll ever meet is responsible for how beautiful it is.

She decorated over 90 percent of it herself while we had the joy of watching.

I will not change a thing about it. It is the most beautiful tree indeed!

JJ's 18 Month Checkup

Today, the kids had Christmas photos taken and this is one of my sweet JJ. It was very strange to take them dressed in their snowman sweaters when it was so warm & beautiful outside :)

This afternoon, JJ had his 18 month checkup, which went very well. He is 34.25 inches tall (95th percentile), 29 lbs (85th percentile in weight) and head at top of charts as always. His health report was very good, and Dr Chris was so glad that he had not seen us (besides at church) since JJ's one year visit. JJ hated his shots, and the scales, and the doctor checking his everything. :) Sydney was along for the ride and they both were able to get their flu shots for this year. We are so thankful for our healthy children.

Luke's "Party"

Last Monday, my friend Dwan hosted a baby shower in honor of sweet Luke!

Sydney was confused by the "shower" term, so we called it a party! It was a very special time for us to take time to celebrate the miracle Luke! One of the best parts of the "party" for me was having my sweet girl there alongside me to enjoy the cupcakes, help me open the gifts and everything else. The big sister had a big time!

Big sister Sydney and I were surrounded by our sweet family and some special friends who really fixed up our Luke!

Luke Asher will be in our arms 9 short weeks from today!

Mickey & Minnie (part 2)

Mickey and Minnie tackled the streets of our neighborhood last night to do some serious trick or treating! Minnie walked, while Mickey rode and walked. Mickey had his first ever lollipop! Minnie was so excited and had so much fun. Mommy and Daddy just had fun being a part of their special night. Halloween has never been so much fun:

It is such a blessing to enjoy life with these sweet faces...
