Thanksgiving 2011

One empty chair
can take up a lot of space.

One missing voice
can be so loud.

One absent smile
can leave a big hole.

Sometimes being thankful
isn't about things you have.

It's about time you had.

Sometimes, all you can do is take a picture.

Jonah's bird feeder.

Jonah made a bird feeder last week during enrichment day. Sadie made one too, but Mary Jane got to it before we could hang it up. So we hung this up on our back deck. Jonah stared out the window for the longest time waiting for birds to come. After awhile he asked if the birds were stopping at all the other kid's houses first. Finally, the birds found it. Now they are eating from it so often, he doesn't even bother looking when I tell him a bird is out there.

Not a very good picture, but it was the best I could do without scaring the bird.

Elijah turned 9 today. We just had a laugh earlier when he said "This was the birth bestday ever!"

I love this picture, it is 100% Elijah:

We went to visit Santa at the mall a couple days ago. Sadie especially wanted to. She really really wants a pink bucket of legos and I think she wanted to make sure she had all her bases covered by telling Santa that. The boys just went for the candy cane. They were good sports though, and told Santa what they wanted.

Isaac is eleven today! He wanted a solar system birthday cake. I tried to put the planets on correctly, I was even looking at a chart, but they weren't labeled so I ended up getting a bunch wrong. We gave him his birthday present (a video camera) a few days early so we could record his concert.


A song from his concert (it's only 30 seconds long):
