Just finished a Christmas present that I'm SO excited about! Wish I could post it, but I can't yet because I know this person's mama reads this blog...

I have to say it is much more calming to make my presents in my living room than to go shopping this time of year! :) At least once my children are asleep that is!

thankful for my Savior's love and grace that covers me and surrounds me. thankful for second and third (and forty ninth) chances. thankful for new beginnings and old friends. thankful for little boys, their unadulterated laughter, and even their dirty shoes. thankful that He knows what I need long before I realize.

thankful for these boys.

Craft Night

Last Friday night, Jamie, Erica, and I had a craft night! Pizza, brownies, candy, soda, sewing machine, ribbon, scrapbook paper, leaves, laughter = good times together! You can see Jamie starting to teach Erica how to sew in these pictures.

Xavier and I had picked up leaves a couple of weeks ago and dried and Mod Podged them. Erica and I strung them to make a garland for my fireplace.
I got two other projects done, but I can't show you yet! Jamie made 10 burp cloths with fabric and ribbon sewed on for her booth at a craft fair in December. We stayed up until 1 am talking and working!

Halloween is not too big of a deal to us. That being said, we had 3 different opportunities to dress up--at our Little Lambs playgroup on Friday morning, Trunk or Treat at church on Friday night, and a little trick or treating with his dad for Xavier on Saturday night. Here are my boys!

When I asked Jordan what he wanted to be for Halloween, he told me he would to wear Xavier's hand-me-down costumes for, oh, the next 7-10 years. How convenient. Thanks, Jordan! He is wearing his costume here on Sat. morning at the LHSN district cross country meet.

Notice Xavier's handmade treat bag made by his Aunt Jamie! It had an "X" appliqued on one side and a pumpkin on the other.

Xavier LOVES his helmet! Thanks for the costume, Grandma Hill!

Happy Birthday, Rebekah!!

Xavier also wishes you a happy birthday, but he says to tell you that he no longer participates in any type of posed photo shoot and to instead refer back to this.

We love you!
