We've got family coming in today so I'll post a quick hello and wish you all a wonderful, family filled Thanksgiving! We are also celebrating Dennis' BIG 40 Birthday on turkey day. Happy Birthday Honey!!
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17
Hard work pays off. Over the weekend the boys helped their dad chop, haul and stack wood for warm, cozy fires this fall and winter. We also got the master bath painted, the powder room trim finished and the hole my darling son punched in the wall patched.
We stacked more than this, but I stopped taking pictures.
It's LOGAN! He celebrated his 13th birthday with a bonfire and lots of friends. I took a few pics of him opening gifts (first thing in the morning, of course) and then when the party started I gave my little point and shoot camera to the party goers and told them to capture the event for me. (partly because it was super cold outside and partly because teenager's don't want their camera geek mom hovering around the party.) Also, I would like to give a shout out to Katie J who reminded me to post these pictures. Thanks!! Now onto the fun stuff.....
Money and a Corvette from Grandma (matchbox of course)
Body wash kit from mom and dad, because we know how bad teen age boys can smell
More money, this time from Great Grandparents
A handmade birthday wish from our dear friend Karrie Laskay
More money, are you sensing a theme here?
Now, onto the party.....remember, the kids took these pics. They crack me up.
Love the cupcake frosting on his face, don't you?
No party is complete without some teen aged trampoline wrestling now is it?
I think we should have swept the leaves off of the trampoline first!
There's the back of the house where all the food and hot chocolate were.
No shoes on the trampoline! Good job guys!
My kid and the neighbor kid, look like deer caught in the headlights. hehe
One of my evening photographers. Thanks H!
Looking a little cold there J! Ahhh, there's the bonfire. Warming up before facing the cold night air. Happy Birthday Logan!!
I've been a tad bit busy lately working on the business end of my life. I've ignored housework, laundry, my poor blog, my poor children and husband. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I just photographed my last family session last weekend. So here's a brief look back over the last 2 months.
