My Dad is a retired Air Force F15 pilot (and Southwest Airline pilot), so Veteran's Day is special for us. The principal at the kids school is retired military and does an AMAZING job celebrating this day.
Men in uniform helped work the morning carline. We sang patriotic songs, attended a moving Mass and had a reception. The reception hall was decorated with military gear (including items from my Dad) and they served food along with a slideshow. OUTSTANDING JOB!! I hope the kids appreciate their PawPaw and his service.
The kids had a fantastic birthday. A day or two before the birthday, Addison was raking leaves (for fun) and learned a valuable lesson... not to step on the end of a rake. It came up and whacked her in the head... huge goose egg!! We spend Saturday at Main Event (Jadon & Addison's choice of activities) and Sunday we went roller skating (Kaylee's choice). On Monday, my parents returned from their vacation and we all went to dinner at Mi Rancho.
Super busy Saturday as we finished up basketball (Cody scored 10 pts. and Kaylee 4 pts.).... soccer was rained out again, and we rushed home and threw on costumes. Then a quick photo session before going over to my parents house for trick or treating. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and a great time was had by all.
Also... the boys got their haircut this week and Jadon no longer needed the booster seat.... I remember having to hold him down because he was so scared at the barber and now he is such a big boy.... *tears*
We finished up the evening at Buffalo Wild Wings and fell into bed!!!
I am a devoted wife to the love of my life Jerry, photographer and mother to four beautiful children, triplets and a bonus baby born 21 months later. We are a Catholic family striving to raise our children with a focus on faith and family.
If you look at something wrong long enough, it starts to look right. Help stop abortion
"Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching it's people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants. And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?" -- Mother Teresa
Pope John Paul II
"To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others."
