It was a really great day.
Yes, Sam actually wears these sunglasses. I have no comment.
Henry had a fun Thanksgiving feast with his pre-school class on Tuesday before the holiday. It was adorable! They had a great time together and got a little crazy.
One final story. We've been wondering if the boys are getting the true Christmas message, or if they're just getting caught up in a more worldly view of it. Sam and I have been really working with the boys and praying that they would really "get" it this year. We were in the van today and Jonah saw some Christmas decorations. He shouted out, "Hey! It's almost God's birthday!" :)

My two boys are truly best friends. They play everything together, they love to dress alike and they LOVE to make each other laugh. A little over a year ago we decided they should share a bedroom (as a way of learning to get along and share, and also just to foster a positive and good relationship between the two). It has been great, and they absolutely LOVE sharing a room.

Where does the time go? Does anyone else feel that the days are flying by? Henry (whose birthday isn't until the end of May) is counting down the days until he turns five. I find myself amazed that my little Jonah is going to be three years old in a few months. And how is my baby already three and a half months old? Seriously, how did it happen?
Being a mom is such an amazing thing. I love everything about it.
I'm not saying it's easy. I'm not saying some days aren't rough. I don't mean to insinuate that I don't struggle.
I just want to remember that they are little for such a short time. I want to enjoy every bit of their childhood. I want to feel the joy that they experience in every little thing. I don't want to rush through one stage just to get to the next.
There isn't really any point to my post today, just some things I'm thinking on.
Hope all you moms out there have a great day!

"Would you please turn that camera off so that I can smile?"
The boys are finally loving playing outside again! It got a little hot for them this summer and my boys who have always LOVED to be outside have been hibernating inside as much as possible. Lately the temperatures have been upper 70s to lower 80s and low humidity--absolutely perfect!
A sunset walk/adventure. This was at the start and the sun was already setting. We thought we were on a loop, but after two miles we weren't getting any closer to our car. By the time we got back it was completely dark and we got to see some bats flying around.

And here's Henry with Lexi, his favorite friend from soccer. These two are inseparable at practices and games--the coach finally figured out that if they're going to actually play they can't be on the field at the same time! (Notice the other kids in the background--they're actually practicing!)

One of the hay rides that I love so much! The jack-o-lantern designers. They're not old enough to actually carve yet! The faces that have lined my porch for a week!
