Liz, Wesley, and Austin

Brooke. Courtney, Liz, Wesley, and Austin

Liz and Wesley
We had a nice Thanksgiving. We went to my mom's for Thanksgiving. I was so glad to get to see my niece and nephew. When they were younger they spent many days at our house and we spoiled them. As they got older they drifted. I have not saw Wesley in probably a year. I see Liz a little more, but not much. We had a wonderful time. I love all my nieces and nephews. I wish they could stay little forever.

Fall Fun

"Hurry daddy. I want to jump"
Ready for the Jump
This is Fun!!!!
Happy Girl
Look at that smile.
Brooke and daddy.
Courtney joined the fun. (for three minutes)
Throwing at daddy.

I wish we had went outside and played in the leaves when they first fell. They were so beautiful with their fall colors. We waited to late and the leaves were all brown and ugly. Brooke did not care. She loved it. Courtney would not play in them. She jumped like once I think and went inside. Brooke was full of smiles.

Thanksgiving Feast

Little Indian Girl
Mrs. T and 5 of her students.
Reagan and Brooke

We went to Brooke's school for a Thanksgiving Feast. I have to say it was delicious. The school went out of their way to make it nice. Each child brought something to help with the feast. We had Ham, corn, green beans, cream potatoes, dressing, and pumpkin pie. The food was so good. I felt a little bad for this one child. It seemed like every child had somebody there with them to enjoy the feast. This one little boy did not have anybody. Courtney sat by him and tried to talk to him. I made a special effort to talk to him. It broke my heart to see all the children with somebody except this little boy. There was probably 40 children. This one little boy's parents came up about the time everybody was through eating. It was also 20 minutes until the children had to leave for the day. They might of had to work or something. I don't know their circumstance, but it really bothered me to see this little fellow by himself.
We had a really nice time. Brooke was thrilled that we made it for her feast. I appreciate the effort that Kevin puts into being there for the girls. Kevin had worked all night and he was so tired. I told him not to worry about coming. He would not hear of it. He told me that he went for Courtney's things and he would not miss Brooke's. Kevin has always went with me to the girls Doctor's appointments, and most of their school things. I appreciate the time he takes for the girls. I know after working all night it would have been easy to just came home and went to bed. Brooke was so happy that her daddy was there for her.

Thanks Kevin, you are the best.

New Glasses

This picture is with the old glasses. See how dark they are outside.

Old Glasses

New Glasses, outside. No Glare or tint.
No Glare.
I think Courtney looks older in them.

Courtney got new glasses. Her prescription changed some for the better. It has been over two years since we had to get her glasses. This was a very hard task. The style has changed so much the past two years. I don't like the new glasses that are out now. They remind me of glasses that I had when I was a kid. I like the wire frames on Courtney. The problem with that was nobody had very many to choose from. Most of what we saw was the plastic frames. We went to many places to look. Courtney also is not in a kid's frame any more. That made it much harder. Finally after much looking and praying for God to help us find the right ones, we found them. If you only knew how long it took us to find them. It was way longer than ever before.
There is two things I am going to love about Courtney's new glasses. One.....We bought a extra thing with them where there is no glare. I will love taking pictures of her and not having that glare. Two we did not buy the sunglasses tint this time. I will love taking outside shots and not having the glasses so dark that you can't see Courtney's eyes.
You might have to click on the pictures to see the glasses better.

Pilgrim Cookie Hats

The girls and I fixed cookies for Brooke to take to school tomorrow. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I got the idea from family fun.

My beautiful Brooke with curls.

Brooke I love you very much. I enjoyed playing dolls with you today. You are a very special girl. Stay sweet and precious.....and stop growing up so fast.


School at the Park.

Courtney, I love you very much. I am so thankful for you. It seems like only yesterday when I held you in my arms. You are growing up to fast on me. I enjoyed last week when we had school at the park. That was so much fun. Hopefully we will have some more warm days and we can do that again.

Awards Sunday

Brooke looks scared.
Going to get her award.

We had awards Sunday at our church. This was Brooke's first time to receive an award. The children start Sunday School at two and half. Brooke got a award for perfect attendance. I did not know if she would go up or not, but she did. You can tell on the one picture that she looks scared. Her dad did not take to good of a picture. I wanted him to take two in case one did not do, but he did not have time. Brooke was walking to fast. LOL

My wonderful Husband.

I think I have the most awesome husband in the world. Kevin was off tonight and I really wanted to rearrange our bedroom. I have had the furniture the same way forever. I also borrowed my Mother -n- law's Rainbow Vacuum to try and clean our room. That is the best vacuum I have ever used. I would love to have one, but they are just to expensive.
Kevin knew I wanted our room rearranged so he takes the bed apart. (It is a King Size) We move the mattress and different things into the living room. I do some major cleaning under our bed with the vacuum cleaner. Kevin turns the bed the way I suggested. After he worked so hard and moved everything, I did not like it. I hated to say anything, but I had to be honest. He rolled his eyes and shook his head and turned it back the way we had it. I love that man so much. I think we spent 2 hours or so cleaning and rearranging the room.
The room looks and smells so good now.
I had to take a moment to brag on my wonderful husband. I told him I was more trouble than I was worth. He did not comment. I appreciate how Kevin is so good to me and the girls. He has so much patience. I wish I was more like him. Kevin treats me like a queen. Some people have said I am spoiled. I don't think so, just truly blessed.
"I love you Kevin. Thanks for all your help tonight. You are the best."

Romans 8:28

Romans 8:28 You know that all things work together for good.......

Seven words seem to say it all. "GOD IS IN CONTROL OF ALL THINGS"

There is no fine print to this promise. There are also no disclaimers. All things and every thing----
every event, every person, all of the past, all of the present, and all of the future-----
falls under God's jurisdiction.

All Things include good things, bad things, small things, and large things. All things includes people.

Knowing God and trusting His promise in Romans 8:28---that He causes all things to work together for good-------gives us hope.

I am glad We are Loved.:)

The fire that Kevin used to burn the long pieces down.

We came home Friday night to find our yard had been rolled. I thought this type stuff happened when your children became teenagers and their friends did it. I thought it might be Courtney's friends, but most of them are to young to be out with out an adult. Maybe the adults helped them. Hmmm Makes me wonder.

I can remember when I was a young person I had a few of my guy friends roll my yard. They even rolled my dads dog. Soon after that my dads dog started having seizures. My dad still wonders if those boys did something to his dog. I am married to one of those boys, and he has not confessed to anything yet.

Kevin was not to happy when he saw our yard Friday night. I had to quickly remind him of the times he rolled yards. Kevin wanted the paper down Friday night so that the person who did it could not come by Saturday morning and laugh. LOL
Some of the paper was high in the trees. Kevin burned the paper and let it fall to the ground. I was getting kind of worried that our trees were going to catch fire. We only have a few and I sure did not want them to burn. After 20 minutes or so we had the yard cleaned up. Brooke cried and cried because she thought the paper was ghost.

Kelly and better be glad yall were at church that night or you would be getting blamed for this one.:) Did yall leave church early??LOL teasing.
Brooke and Cadan.
