- Our Faith
- Our Family
- Our Friends
- And soo much more!
Our kids enjoyed making these turkeys using their hand print. We have more pictures to post of all the fun we've been having during deer hunting, but they'll have to wait. Now we need to get ready for Turkey day at our house! Its a tad early, but we wish y'all a Happy Thanksgiving!

These are all of Benji's cousins (including his siblings)
*bottom: John, Jacob, Larissa, Benji, Katie (hiding behind Benji), Carolyn, Emily
*top: Wyatt, Meri
That makes 9 for grandkids. For people close to the family may notice, WYATT, our newest nephew, actually 3 days younger than John! We are so glad to finally meet and hold him!
P.S. Notice how Tubby is still sitting in his highchair, because he's STILL eating ;-)
Ahh.. it was a busy, fun - filled weekend. Benji's bday was on the 9th, so I'm naturally behind on posting these. But now that we have a computer at home, I'll be better at updating ;-) (hopefully) And on this note, I'll sign off, because we are now up to date, and I now need to get back to work like get the house in line for our "deer hunter widow & kid week" and more importantly, Thanksgiving (for about 30)!!
Happy 5th Birthday Benji! We can't believe how big you are getting! We love you so much!
They bought a cake, with a buck and a hunter, which was a hit for all the kids. Benji got lots of new presents and clothes. And not to be left out.. Carolyn, Katie and John all got a few things too!
One night, Carolyn climbed up onto the chair and started read her book. Then Benji asked her if he could brush her hair. Carolyn, "Oh Benji, that would be soo nice, but will you brush slowly, because if you do it won't hurt me!" So Carolyn read her book to Benji while he "slowly" brushed her hair. He must have done alright because she never said, "OUCH!" * She isn't yelling in the picture, just reading*
Katie is a miniature mom. She will carry a baby around all day, while wearing her dress up shoes. But she also remembers to feed her baby a bottle or sometimes she has to nurse, then she'll burp it, and finally sing and rock it to sleep. Here she wanted everyone to be quiet, so she could go Nigh-Nigh with her baby!

Here is our latest attempt to get all 4 kids picture. This "session" I tried solo, but quickly learned its MUCH easier to have Benjamin there to keep the kids ready, while I snap the camera. But we did a some cute ones, and the kids had fun running in the tall grass. John thought it was hilarious to sit in his chair, smile, stand up, clap and RUN!
