More of Aidan's Artwork

Not sure exactly what the rectangular growth on the rabbit's back is, but c'mon, that's a pretty good rabbit for a 3 1/2 year old, eh? Seriously, this kid is pretty good. His fine motor skills are really taking off. He gets so detailed in his coloring lately, and can write letters almost as well as Caleb. It's fun to see his artistic bent, but it is going to be a challenge to his un-artistic parents to nurture it!

So proud of our biggest little man...

Caleb, we had your first real parent-teacher conference last week. Mommy was SO excited, even if it meant sitting in those little bitty chairs... Daddy and I got to hear your teacher go on and on about how well you are doing in school.

We are so proud of you Caleb. Proud of the way your mind works to figure things out. Proud of your creative imagination. Proud of how determined you are and how hard you work. Proud that you are so enthusiastic about learning. Proud that you are responsible. Proud that you are respectful and kind to others. We could go on and on, because you are an amazing kid.

Most of all though, we are so extremely proud of your heart. A heart that loves the Lord. A heart that desires to know more and more about Him. A heart that trusts Him. A heart that is excited to tell others about Him. A heart that is often insightful beyond its years. We pray that this heart of yours will only love Christ more and more deeply each day of your life, for we know He has such incredible plans for you.

We are so thankful that God chose YOU to be part of our family.

Halloween Festivities Part One

We had another incredibly fun year celebrating with the kids. We started on Thursday night, dressing up for some activities at Aidan's preschool, and then trick-or-treating at the High School. Friday was Caleb's Halloween Parade and party, which I got to help out with. Friday night we carved our pumpkin and ate some pumpkin bread. Aunt Robin and Uncle Will arrived about then also, to spend the weekend with us. Bonus! Saturday we headed to the church for Trunk-or-Treat, and then trick-or-treated up and down our idyllic street. So much fun. So much candy. All done and exhausted by about 7PM. Not bad at all.
