thoughts on Thanksgiving & pictures :)

Amy and I were completely blessed to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with family. It was a little strange not being with friends from GA (since that is who we have spent the last 5 Thanksgivings with) but nothing that we would want to miss out on with our family. Nathan continues to talk about all the people he got to play with over the past 2 weeks. :)

A few pictures for your viewing pleasure...

Becca and Nathan enjoying a little snack.

Wes wanted to wear Nathan's fireman jacket all day long after we got back.

NYWC over

We are back with family after the convention. It was a joy to be at the convention, but it is great to be back with the boys. We sure did miss them!

We got back earlier than expected last night and were able to see the boys before they went to bed. What an honor that was.

I'm going to go spend some time with them now. We'll post more later

away from the boys day 6

Its been tough. The boys are doing well, but Nathan is really starting to miss us too. So, that makes it hard to call and talk to him. He told Amy today that he cried because he missed us. :(

We can't wait to get back to see them!!

We know they are having a great time with Nene and Poppy, so we're not worried. Its been good to hear how mom and dad are doing and how much of a blessing it is to have them have the chance to be together for more than a few days.

The NYWC is going great. It has been long days, but a great uplifting to talk to others who are youth workers. God has showed up in some rather "normal" circumstances.

dropping off boys

Last night we arrived in Fort Wayne to drop off the boys and dogs. Sticky and Sadie were quick to remember grandma Carol. Nathan and Wes were equally well adjusted after just a few minutes.

Today we leave for cincy. It will be tough to leave the boys, but we know they will be more than fine here with family. They will probably forget we are even gone :)

less than a week

On Sunday we are driving up to Fort Wayne. We will be leaving the boys with grandpa/grandma and they are both excited. Even today at lunch, Nathan was talking about the trip and how he was excited!

Then on Monday, Amy and I are off to cincy for the National Youth Workers Convention. We are both pretty excited about this. This is her first time to help at the convention and my third.

Then on the 20th, we are back to Fort Wayne to spend a few days with family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Looking forward to this little vacation.

Lots to do b/w now and Sunday.

Photo Friday

Wes loves to be thrown in the air. Here is a pic from our old house where we tried to capture him midair. Not too bad.

Nathan got to get up close with the tractor that pulled the hayride. Needless to say, he is a little tiny compared to the huge tires.

Wes trying to share some of his birthday cake with Aunt Kim. He didn't get near as messy as Nathan did.

Aunt Kim visited and the boys (as well as Amy and I) loved having her with us.

Here it is. The final picture of our boxes. Thanks Aunt Kim for taking them away for us :)

Here is a picture from the Trunk-n-Treat at church. What a cute Darth Vader! Hey, look at that big boy fireman.

Gotta love boys.

What a weekend

Aunt Kim visited this past weekend. It was great

Had a trunk-n-treat at church. Nathan was a fireman and Wes was Darth Vader. Sorry no pictures, but I'm having trouble getting them to load.

Yesterday we went out and did some trick or treating with a friend. Nathan again was a fireman and Wes was a Duck :) Yeah we ended up with two different costumes for him, got them last year. Needless to say the duck was a little smaller.

Will try to put pics up again.
