I received an early birthday present in the mail from my sweet sister-in-law, Andrea, and my niece, Makenna Riley. How did they know these were going to be on my Christmas list? Thank you so much!! I just love them!

Happy 13Th Birthday Blake! It seems like just yesterday you were a little boy. You have grown into such a handsome, kind, athletic and funny teenager. You are a joy in our lives, and we wish you a wonderful year full of happiness, fun, and lots of love and laughter!

I made Lori's pasta recipe for dinner tonight!! It was delicious, and my family LOVED it! I used bow tie pasta (out of penne), and I added a can of quartered artichokes! It was the perfect meal to make on a night where basketball and football schedules have taken over. Thanks for sharing Lori!

Bennett is playing flag football again this year. Well, last year he didn't technically play because after the first practice he fell out of the tree in our front yard and broke his wrist, poor guy. He was so disappointed. He loves football so much, but is quite aggressive on the field, I think he might be a candidate for tackle.

I was going to do a post to just say I was "still here", but remembered how much I have to be thankful for, so here's my first ever "Thankful Thursday" post.
~I am thankful for my husband. He is my biggest encourager and supporter. He has a wonderful way of looking at things and seeing only the positive. We have had a stressful and amazing week (hope to share about it soon!), and he has held my hand and walked with me through every moment. I love you Toby!
~I am thankful for my three amazing boys. They too have hung in there this past week, with laughter and excitement. I am truly amazed when I look at each one of them, at the gift God has given me.
~I am thankful for two of my dearest friends, Terry and Candy, who have been my prayer warriors. Terry and her husband are traveling to China in one week to bring home their 11 year old son (they have a 14yr old son, and two daughters from China 5 & 3), and Candy has 5 BOYS of her own, and they have each taken time for my many phone calls and to pray for me!
~I am thankful for this blogging world. I have met some of the nicest people through our blogs as we all travel on this journey together.
