Soren's 6th Birthday

Soren you are 6!!!!!!!!!!!!  Wow, you are so precious to us and I am so grateful for the last 6 years.  5 seemed like such a big year for you and now we are moving onto 6!  You love Planes right now so that is the theme of this year's party.  Planes!  Friday morning we had your friend birthday party at out house.  Daddy even surprised us and came home from work for the party!

Good morning to you on your 'real' birthday!
You at exactly 7:49 am.  You are officially 6!

The only present you really wanted was a real bible.  You love trying to be like dad and reading your bible.  Melts my heart and makes me so thankful!
After church we went over to G'ma and G'pa's house to celebrate...
All of us!

We praise God for creating you Soren.  You are such a blessing in our lives.  We pray that you would fall more in love with the Lord this year.

Cutting down our Christmas Tree

Dustin and I bought a fake Christmas tree the first year we were married.  This year we brought it up and found it was covered in mold.  We immediately threw it in the garbage.  We decided we wanted to be fun and start a new tradition of cutting a real one.  So here we are, cutting our first tree down...



and decorating...
Turns out, Selah is extremely allergic to 'real' trees.  She woke up the next morning (Thanksgiving) with hives and it continued to get worse.  We got rid of the tree and ended up buying another fake one!

Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year at Paul and Carolyn's house.  They had a perfect set-up for our kids and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable day.  We had a great time fellowshipping with family!!!
