Say "YES!" to God's call.
When He calls, He always enables.

I usually get my camera out for big affairs, like birthday parties, wedding showers or shows.  However, on occassion, I remember to get it out to record our ordinary daily life.  We are blessed that Jerry is able to join us in the middle of the day so we clear away the school books for an hour or so and this is what we look like most afternoons.

Thanksgiving Tree

I didn't remember to put up our Thanksgiving tree until just a few days before Thanksgiving day.  It was created from items on hand (think paperbags and construction paper) so it was a little crude, but by the time the kids (big and little) finished decorating it, it was lovely.  I was thrilled with their enthusiasm and their grateful hearts.

The Christmas Parade

Our small town has a Christmas parade very year on the Sunday following Thanksgiving.  Since Jerry is a volunteer firefighter, the kids get to ride on the truck in the parade.   This was Simon and Jed's first year to ride and they were beyond delighted!
