Happy Thanksgiving! ~2018~

We enjoyed a fun Thanksgiving day with the Hensons. The kids helped me cook…homemade macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs, brownies, and cranberry sauce were our contribution. We watched the Macy’s parade while cooking. Parker and Grayson made placemats for the kids. The boys played football. The girls colored. It was a super fun day with family!IMG_8084IMG_8098IMG_8097IMG_8089IMG_8110IMG_8113

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1

Run Hard and some more fun!

Anna Claire and Charlie participated in Run Hard at their school during the first 9 weeks of the semester. Last weekend they ran their 5k. I was so proud of them!! We went to the orthopedist for AC the week before because of a knee problem so I was worried we would have to walk a lot of it but she ran the entire thing! Charlie finished it in 29minutes and 15 seconds! woo hoo!! Momma and Daddy survived too. 😉 IMG_7691IMG_7718 2IMG_7719 2IMG_7698IMG_0083 3IMG_7844 2IMG_7717 2After the game AC went to spend the day with Marley playing at her house and going to Wingard’s Nursery to do the maze. Devin, Charlie, and I headed to the fields for his last game of the season which was another awesome win! IMG_7732 2That evening we got together with 6 neighbor families for dinner to celebrate on of our neighbors being home from deployment! So thankful for his service. IMG_7736Sunday morning before church Devin and AC worked on her logo for her baked goods she will be selling at a holiday show. 🙂 IMG_7745That afternoon after church we went to the Veteran’s Day Parade.IMG_7747IMG_7845 2Tuesday the kids were out of school for election day. We went to vote then picked up a couple of their friends for a day at the park, lunch at Groucho’s, then to see the new Nutcracker movie. It was a fun day off with friends we don’t see as often as we’d like to!IMG_7780IMG_7803 2IMG_7804IMG_7819
