Here we go...a random collection of pictures and a quick summary of the latest.
You're not going to believe it, but surprise surprise we got sick over Thanksgiving weekend. It seems like the sickness never leaves us! But I have to say that even though it was a bummer not feeling well, I didn't mind too much. Caleb came home early on Wednesday and we spent the next four days laying low and just enjoy our little family.
My sister and her family were in town and like always we enjoyed them so so much. We love our time with them and it makes us wish they lived close.
I took David and Elijah out for a special lunch.
The kids were in heaven with their cousins for two weeks and Elijah learned some good lessons in sharing:)
The Monday after Thanksgiving Caleb's sister and family came to stay with us for a week. They are missionaries in Africa and we hadn't seen them in three years. We actually had never met their youngest, Hope, and they had never meet Vanessa or Amelia. Our time together was so sweet.
Caleb and I spent lots of one on one time with their girls, and Troy and Bekah spent lots of time with our kids. We had lots of time to make up.
(a date night...just the adults. family devotion time.
playing together. and watching a movie, don't laugh. we don't have a t.v. so they watched it on our computer)
A week seemed too short, but it was easier saying good-bye knowing we'll see them at Christmas.
The last week was spent catching up after company. Comforting a teething baby. Getting ready to go out of town. and preparing for Elijah's birthday. He turns four on Wednesday. I can't believe it.
