for a happy, healthy baby whose face lights up when he sees me

for a loving, faithful husband who is kinder to me than I deserve

for a wonderful community of friends and neighbors

for family whom we miss so much today

for a Savior who loves me

for beautiful fall days

for being able to run 

for delicious food that brings people together for fellowship

for sappy movies that make you feel all warm and fuzzy

for a whole 4 days to spend with my boys

for simple joys and pleasures that give you a taste of heaven

for sorrows and pain that make you long for heaven

for a church where the gospel is not only preached every week, but lived out in its community every day

for reminders that the world is bigger than what I see every day

for laughter, especially Caleb's

for forgiveness and restoration

for the hope of Jesus

for a special day to remember how much there is to be thankful for

Ahhh, the life...

Watching Praise Baby sort of puts him in a trace. Every once in a while though, I'll hear him squeal, and when I look over he's got a huge grin on his face as he watches a baby come up on the t.v. screen. Too cute...
He actually started out sitting up here, but slowly slid down and wedged himself in between the pillows.

The Army Crawl

Playing with Jack

This is our sweet friend, Jack, who lives across the street. It's so fun to watch him and Caleb play together because Jack is about 6 months older and has a lot to teach Caleb. Caleb knows it's cool to have older friends.
