Another Birthday and Thanksgiving....

The third and final birthday this fall.
The baby is now a teenager.

Jake is in 7th grade this year.
Started the year homeschooling and taking classes at Grace.
Just transferred to Coosa Valley Academy.
He makes good grades, loves his siblings and his friends 
and loves to do all things outdoors.
He is playing basketball for the first time and is such
a leader on the team.

When the weather is bad...
Call of Duty
is the inside game of choice.

For his birthday, Jake just wanted to have friends over
for pizza and a bonfire.

Anna transformed the garden shed
into Party Central.
It definitely helps to have a very 
creative sister!
Thanks Anna!


We spent Thanksgiving at Mom and Dad's this year.
And enjoyed having Sarah and John with us for a few days.

The kids needed to burn some energy after lunch...
A game of Two-hand touch did the job!

Love these kids!!

My personal favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal....

Turkey. Dressing. Cranberry sauce.
