Veterans Day Weekend

Woo Hoo!!!!  A 3 day weekend!  It's a cold, rainy, rainy, rainy Veteran's Day (observed) here and our Veterans Day parade has been canceled, which makes us sad.  The kids and I really love making a "Thank you!" poster and holding it at the parade each year.  So I guess this blog shout out will have to do:

To those who serve, those who have served, To those who have given the ultimate sacrifice and to those who let them go - our deepest thanks.

It was an eventful end of the week/ weekend around here!

Thursday was JR's football banquet.  He looked so handsome!

 And ML looked beautiful as always.....

 Look how grown up these boys look!

We had a great speaker at the banquet and I was so proud of how well the boys all sat and listened...... and look at them sitting together as a team!  They did that all on their own.

Well, I really enjoyed the ENTIRE 12 hours we had 'off' from sports!  Ha! Football banquet Thursday night, Basketball practice Friday.  :-)

Saturday night was Miss A's 21st birthday party!

We can't believe it.  Miss A was our first ever babysitter.  And, I'm pretty sure it was just yesterday we were celebrating her 16th birthday!

Sunday the small group girls got together to make Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. (The deadline is fast approaching!  Going to try to put together the ones with the kids today.)
 And of course, there was some baking involved.  We made chocolate chip cookies with Oreos inside.  Yummo!

Dinner out with the fam and that's a wrap on our weekend thus far!
So much to be thankful for.  Thank you Veterans!!!
