Well, November is half way over and I'm finally caught up with my October blogging! Here is my monthly post of random things that didn't get their own post.
|I just love this sweet face|
|We get excited around here when a box comes|
For Ryan's birthday this year we celebrated over the whole week. It was a busy week of work, etc. so there really wasn't just one day that we could do it all. It was fun to spread it out.
|Happy Birthday Ryan!|
|I let James pick out a card for Ryan. Not too surprised that this is what he chose!|
|Of course we added some decoration|
|Ryan requested a chocolate chess pie. James insisted that daddy wanted a purple cake.|
So.... we made both! Can't have too much cake.

Every year that I taught I always bought these little pumpkins for my students. I wanted to make sure they each got to have their own pumpkin and they LOVED getting to paint them. So I decided I would let James try it. He enjoyed it, but we definitely haven't mastered the concept of not mixing all the colors so the pumpkin ended up a nice shade of brown. But hey- it kept him happy for at least ten minutes!

I also had to include this on the blog so it would be in my blog book for the future. Several (prob around 6 years ago) my parents hosted two kids for the Samaritans Purse Childrens' Heart Project. The kids were around two and had life-saving heart surgery and stayed with my parents for around 2 months. Needless to say we fell in love with the two little girls. Recently my mom received this email from the office in Honduras with sweet Darling's picture attached. I wish a had a picture on my computer from when we knew her, and it's crazy to me that James is the same age that she was. I can't believe how grown up and healthy she now is! Such a neat ministry and a wonderful experience for our whole family.
