All is Well

Day 333 of 365- November 28th Jonah woke feeling like himself again on Wednesday.  He rushed into my room saying that he felt great and could I please check his temperature.  Sure enough, his temp was normal.  It was good to see him smile again. Now that Jonah was better, it was time for a picture in front of the Christmas tree for 2012.  I just sat there snapping away with the camera as Sumner & Jonah tried to show Caleb how to smile normal.  Oh how I adore these 3 and all of the craziness they have together! Jonah: “Smile like this, Caleb.” Sumner: “Let me see...

Office Antics

Day 332 of 365- November 27th We headed to the doctors office on Tuesday morning.  Jonah was still not feeling well with a temp of 103 and Caleb woke with, what I thought was, a serious cough.  It didn’t take me long to realize that I was wrong on Caleb.  As soon as he got up on the exam table he was cracking jokes and making faces in the mirror behind him.  The cough was mysteriously gone as well.  Go figure. This set of pics was taken in the span of about 20 seconds. Jonah was a trooper and gave me a smile. Poor guy was ready to start feeling better...

The Little People Nativity

Day #331 of 365- November 26th The Little People Nativity Set has been part of our Christmas tradition since Sumner and Jonah were little.  Caleb continues to be enthralled with it, making sure it is set up just right, playing the music every time he passes by each day, and asking different questions about the nativity and the story of Jesus’ birth.  It has been such a great learning toy for all three of our boys through the years.  They have each loved having a special nativity to set up and play with all on their own.  As Caleb was setting it up tonight, Adam and I wondered how...

Christmas Tree Hunting

Day 330 of 365- November 25th We headed to find a Christmas tree on Sunday.  Jonah was still not feeling well but really wanted to go do it.  Despite the fact that we were cutting down a tree in 60/70 degree weather, we quickly realized how different getting a tree was going to be in the south.  There were only a few pre-cut Douglas firs to choose from so we opted to go with a native Louisianan tree called the Carolina Sapphire.  It has the same triangular shape but is a hint of blue in color, and has lots of branches jetting out here and there.  Very different, but we really liked...

Thanksgiving in Minnesota

Day 327 of 365- November 22nd As I said before, Adam’s sister April had no idea she would be having an extra 12 people at her house for Thanksgiving.  She handled it so well!  We had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner and a great day filled with playing games, playing some chess, shooting guns, and just being together. Jonah and Caleb spent the afternoon playing some chess with Grandpa and loving on the dogs. Sumner went with Adam and some of the guys to the shooting range before dinner.  He had never fired a big gun before and was thrilled with the opportunity.  He was even more...
