Riley's Third Birthday and Thanksgiving

My baby turned 3 this year. I have had feelings of pure Joy and pure sadness. Knowing she is our last has made the memories more sweet. She is growing so fast, sometimes it seems that she is way past 3. She loves to read to her babies and play with her "dishes". Matt and I can have coffee anytime we want and her meals are so interesting (seriously: cookies, onion rings and celery- YUM!) We had a very low key party. She celebrated at school with her friends and then she chose to go to Red Robbin for her birthday dinner. Then it was home for presents and to bed. We are so blessed to have this little wonder in our home. God knew what he was doing when he fashioned her. I look forward to watching her grow into an amazing young woman of God.

We spend Thanksgiving up at Lee and Linda's this year. Lee was discharged from the hospital 2 days before, so we enjoyed getting to spend time with him at home. The kids were ecstatic to have grandma and paw paw at home, while we were there. It was hard for them to understand why we were at their house, and they were not there. Scott and Heather, along with their kids came over and we all ate a great dinner. We had a really relaxing time and were happy to help Lee and Linda get settled after being in the hospital for several weeks. (there were no pictures as I forgot my camera here)
