Water for Christmas

Water for Christmas is a wonderful charity that helps provide people in Africa with clean water. Today they are doing a special campaign. I pray that you will consider donating even just $10 today...it will provide clean water for one person for 10 years! 100% of your donation goes toward these fresh water wells.

one

Silas,
Yesterday you turned ONE! You are such a special part of our family. As I laid you down for your nap I looked down at you and all I could think of is that you are a GIFT. A true and precious gift. God did miraculous things to bring you into our family, and I couldn't be more grateful.
-Your smile can truly make ANYONE smile.
-You're a little comedian already!
-You are my little snuggle bug, and I think you would snuggle all day long if you could. I love it!
-You LOVE to eat and we've hardly found a thing on this Earth that you don't think is tasty.
-You are on the move, crawling faster every day, pulling up onto your knees, and loving to stand! You've come such a long way sweetheart.

I could just keep on bragging on you! But most of all I just want to let you know that you are a JOY. I am so blessed to be your Mama. I hope you had a very happy birthday.
We love you sweet, sweet boy!!!

All of the kids (including Silas!) love Electric Company. They sit just fascinated by the words and music. They have seen this song on a few times and they think it's the best thing ever. And now I'll be singing it the rest of the day...

little tricky treaters

We had such a fun day yesterday. Phil was gone for work all day, and since it's no fun to trick or treat alone, we headed to Brookville, Indiana (my hometown). The kids got to snag candy with their cousins and as Gibson said, "It was awesome!" Silas also had an amazing day and happily let my whole family hold him. It was a nice break for me! He had a ball just hanging out. He also showed off his new skill...calling me mama! He started saying it to me on Thursday but I was still unsure. I'm definitely sure now that he knows. He says it so sweetly and it's music to my ears. Now on to the pictures!

All the little cousins in a row
They were adorable and had such a great time going around the neighborhood.
And then there's this one...
How could he do this to me?!
Goodness gracious.
