We were busy over Thanksgiving, going from one home to the next.

but nothing beats watching the girls loving on their little cousins.

Daddy loves Thanksgiving too.... (side note, smashed grape on Joe's sock)

The girls were singing and dancing upstairs.

Scarlett had quite the "goodbyes."  Thanksgiving gives us so much to be thankful for.  We thank God for all of His blessings.

Scarlett's Birthday

Our big girl turned 5.

We had the Butler family at Pizza Hut.

Pizza is one of Scarlett's favorite foods.

Scarlett and Willow have so much fun together, all though they can pull each others strings too.

Uncle Cheese and Willow were giggling away.

Of course, Willow is all about the camera.

Scarlett loved her presents.

We can't believe our little girl is getting so big.

Pappaw, Willow and Leah giving lots of love.

just 60

My dad turned 60 this year.  So 60 days before his birthday he received little fun presents from 60 different people.  The day we had his name we gave him 60 water bottles from Buehlers.  The girls were so excited for him to open it.

I think he enjoyed those 60 days, visiting with friends, receiving notes, cards and gifts.  Happy Birthday Dad.  You never cease to amaze me with your love and strong faith.  Thank you for being such an awesome role model to our family.

As his birthday approached, we threw him a little surprise party with Scarlett and Tagen.  All of their birthdays are in December. 

I think when you are little the best part is to open the gifts.  Scarlett of course had just had some black cake and she is adorned with Grandma Bonnie's American Girl Doll dress.  All the girls go upstairs and dress up, put heels and make up on.  I love this stage and that they are so much fun.  I love that she LOVES to play with her cousins.  Thank you to everyone for loving on Scarlett during her birthday. 

I took pictures of everyone at the party, but they wouldn't load.  I will try to post so they are added to our memories.  This is Tom and Rhonda Troyer, and their daughter Lizzie was probably running around the house with the girls too!!

Fun Times

Ohio is always a load laughter for our girls.

Scarlett loves her cousins.  She names each of them, and tries to spell each of their names.

Of course, they love their jeeper at Grandma's.

They drove the jeeper down to the golf course as Daddy was teeing off.  Hoping to share a few post on our Thanksgiving trip to Ohio.
