Trouble in Three's

They say trouble comes in 3's, right? Last Friday, I wrecked into a car. An hour later we got the news that Jason's father had just had a massive heart attack. And yesterday, Palmer tripped up the brick steps and knocked his 2 front teeth back. It's been a stressful week before Thanksgiving.
Still, I am SOOO thankful for all that didn't happen. Each situation could have been so much worse. No one was hurt when I backed into the parked car and the family who owns the car is so sweet and understanding. Jason's father was blanketed in prayer and saved. The doctores successfully put in a stint, and he is home for the holidays. And Palmer is okay (although his mouth looks bad and he might lose his teeth.)
I am so happy to know that God is in control as always. And I know we have a LOT to be thankful for this holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Better late than never!

I finally got some pictures of the kids in their costumes. . . then it took about week to get them posted. Life is so busy, it seems impossible to get everything done. Anyway. . . one thing down, one million to go!

Halloween pictures

Brooke and the girls made this cute cake!

Friday was a blast. This was our first Halloween in a "real" neighborhood. We started the day off with a field trip to see some real bats at McDowell park and then had a little family get together before going trick-or-treating with all of the cousins on Jason's side of the family. It was so much fun. Unfortunately, I couldn't my kids to stay still long enough to get any good pictures of them in their costumes -- so tomorrow, I'm going to make them get all dressed up again and pose for me! I did however, get some good pictures of the food :)
