Another Month Flies By

More Family Fun
If you click on the photo above you will go to my web album. I've uploaded a few fun photos of the kids. The gals in bed with their daddy are having some fun. I just loved their matching pjs! Ellie turned 19 months this week. She continues to be quite entertaining. We are really enjoying her.

Things around the house continue to stay busy. We have had lots of fun together. A few weeks ago Catherine Jo won second place in her first horse show. I was one proud momma. My third child is really coming into her own. It is fun to watch her blossom. She has gone from being the baby for 7 years to being a big sister to two and is doing really well at it. I don't have a photo of Matt in his Target uniform(go figure), but the boy does me proud working his not so fun job and staying on top of school at the same time. It is not easy sometimes, but we are doing pretty well around here.
We celebrated Davie's "i gotcha day" this past Saturday. David built a pit in the backyard for a campfire and we roasted marshmellows for smores. She thought it was the neatest thing. After the smores and baths we watched her gotcha day video. Oh my, was she cute! She was such a happy little baby from the very beginning. I am so blessed to have her as my daughter.

Thanksgiving has come and gone. Sarah was home for 5 days and we had some fun with her. We celebrated on Thanksgiving day with family and then spent time on Saturday with friends reflecting on our blessings of the year. I have so much to be thankful for. Not only do I have wonderful kids, but David is such a wonderful partner to me. This is my team and I'm grateful that so far they haven't voted me off the island.

Congrats to Catherine Jo!

When oh when are we going to chat? Life just flies by and we never seem to get around to it. Maybe after Christmas? :-)
