Thanksgiving

We spent the holiday back home again to visit family. Thursday with my in laws and Saturday with my family. We had a great time just relaxing and enjoying the company.


Of Course I had my camera out the whole time :)

Because who can afford to miss a moment like this?


Or This?
-------------------------------------------------
Again, I let a whole week go by without posting. I have been real busy. With Jackson down to one nap, I am limited with my free time. I have been spending it all on maintaining a household and working on my christmas gifts. I am super excited to show you all what I have been working on, but I have to wait... because many of the recipents read this blog :) And we can have the gifts being spoiled.
I have also been volunteering with the Children's Ministry at church. I know I have mentioned that here before, I have been asked to take on the Service Coordinator position for the second Sunday service. I help to coordinate the childcare rooms (Babies, Toddlers, 2s/3s and 4K). I have been really enjoying it because it has gotten me much more involved. I had been asking God to show me where I best fit there... because I really wanted to build relationships. I didn't have to look far, because I was approached about this. So that made me feel good and made me want to help.
I hope that everyone has enjoyed their thanksgiving and had a wonderful time with their families. I will be reading through your latest posts now... as it has been awhile for me :)

Glad you had a good time with your families and I know all about free time. Carly doesn't really nap at all in the daytime but she does sleep all night. So between my other kids and school, it gets tough sometimes.
I have been grading some papers for Ridge's teacher as she has been sick and I can't really help at school with Carly. So I try to volunteering from home. It's so nice your church asked you to help out. I bet it is alot of fun.
Pictures are great and Jackson is getting so big.
Take care
Caroline :)

Of course, can't go without pics! Happy belated Thanksgiving. I haven't been around much in the last week with Hannah being around for the week. I'm getting caught up on all the posts. My eyes kinda bugged when I say I had over 300 to read. Yikes! Just 70 to go! lol

Going to one nap a day was a huge adjustment for me! I think it was harder for me than Molly! I hear ya on getting everything done during those precious sleeping hours! Jax is so cute, as always!
