Santa Claus

Eden got to meet Santa for the first time. She did great. When she first got in his lap she just stared at him. Jude and Krimson both sat in his lap too. No freaking out this year! What do you know.

Here we are at the Christmas parade on Saturday! Eden loved the backpack and Krimson was a mad woman collecting the candy!

The Spirit of Giving

This past weekend our family got to join Marc's work with their Christmas project! Every year The Center for Children and Families has a huge Christmas project for the families in their programs that can't afford to give their children any type of Christmas. This year a local radio station joined with them and plugged their project for a week at the mall and had people donate money or toys to the project. Well, on Saturday the trailer that was at the mall with the radio station delivered the goodies to Marc's work and all the families from Marc's work unloaded and sorted thru the presents. It was such a blessing for our family to get to help with, and I couldn't have been more proud of our kids has they helped get the toys off the trailer, sort, and bag them. I heard only a few, "Can I have this?" And when we told them no and why there was not complaining. This is a wonderful time of year to remember others and to remember it is better to give than receive. These two pictures are a shot of the toys piled up on the floor that we unloaded off of the trailer.

Happy Thanksgiving

Eden's first Thanksgiving was a good one! We headed to St. Louis to the Fager's! Eden tried bread for the first time and ate sweet potatoes for her Thanksgiving lunch. The 3 older kids played, played, ate, played, and then played some more.

First Braid

Krimson sat still long enough for Grandma to braid her hair.

Thanksgiving Bash

Here are the boys at their Thanksgiving bashes at school. Jude sang his heart out and Adam loved showing off his art work. Grandma and Big Daddy made it down for both events and the kids had a great time.

Bath Time

Eden Beth experienced her first bath in the sink. She did great! She loves to get her hands on anything near by.

Seeker Springs

Marc works part time at Seeker Springs doing a ropes course for various groups. The boys love going with him and "helping". Here are some shots of Adam doing one of the high elements. This was what he did the day of his first rite of passage and he's just been doing it all since then.

Wore Out

Well, if there's one thing I can say about our parenting skills it is that we can wear our kids out! This picture of Jude says it all. If you can sleep in a wagon like this at trunk or treat, you're tired!

Fall Updates

Well, we are enjoying our fall! After 4 trips to the pumpkin patch and bucket loads of candy we are officially in Thanksgiving time!  Adam had his tonsils out at the first of October. We had a rough week, but he is doing well now and talks a little different.  Jude and Adam are enjoying their soccer season! Jude played his final game of the fall Saturday and had 2 goals! Adam has his last game this fall on Sunday. He averages about a goal a game and several assists. They will both start back up in the spring. I know they will miss playing it on the weekends.  Krimson has started preschool this year and loves it everyday! She got to have a pumpkin hunt last week and dressed up for it as well. Eden is eating baby cereal, bananas, sweet potatoes, and carrots! She loves her food and fusses if it doesn't get to her mouth fast enough. She's getting so strong and her hands are grabbing everything.  Eden just turned 5 months on the 2nd, Krimson is 2 1/2, Jude is 4 1/2 and Adam is 6 1/2!  We are enjoying our growing kids very much!  Marc is busy with work, but enjoys to a ton! I have started selling Pampered Chef again and it's been fun getting back into the swing of things!  Enjoy the pictures and We pray that everyone is blessed this Thanksgiving season.
