Happy 15th Emma Kate!

I woke up this morning in a pondering state.......wondering HOW I could have a 15 year old daughter. It really just seems like a few short years ago, we were told there may not be any "Green" children. And, if so, there would probably only be one. We prayed and prayed and learned what a "fervant" prayer was. God reassured His faithfulness to us when we found out we were having a baby. A baby girl! How could I be so blessed as this?! Emma has been a shining light in our worlds since the day she was born. Yes, there were MANY evenings that I wondered how I would make it through.....and, yet, Got proved Himself over and over!

Today, at 15, she amazes us with her grace....not only physical.....but, her whole graceful self! Her beauty shines from within. Her joy is contagious! Her sweet spirit goes before her. She's my daughter. My coffee buddy. My singing partner. My movie-goer. My biggest fashion critic. And, my friend. I'm so glad she's mine!

I'm a Little Indian.....on the go!

We got to enjoy our first Thanksgiving Feast and program with Seth at his preschool! It was so cute! And he was the cutest little Indian boy.....I'm so thankful he is mine! There is just something about him that makes us beam!
Notice the fire alarm on the wall.....inside a tidy, LOCKED, plastic box! That is where they should be, ESP. with "Seths" around! :)

This is his friend, Sydney. I think she is staking her claim on him early! :)

We all have so much to be thankful for........Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy 12th Birthday, Hanna Grace!

I am praising God today for the beautiful gift I received 12 years ago today! She is still the ball of sunshine she was when she came into this world! I am so glad she is mine! Happy Birthday, beautiful girl!

Halloween......and the festivities that surround!

I love Halloween! It is such a fun time for our family! We love to carve the fabulous pumpkins we all meticulously picked.

Lily, loving the goo..........

Sethy enjoyed his first Fall Festival at preschool. It was cowboy day......

My cute cowboy and his little Indian friend, Sydney Adee.....

Painting his sweet little pumpkin.....

.....and his first fishing pond.....I used to love this game at Parkey's Fun Night!

The kids love to dress up....and, this year, I was told to, also. About a week before Halloween, when asked what she was gonna be for Halloween, Lily would say, "A spooky black cat......and my mom is my witch!" I didn't want to spoil the fun, so, a witch, I was. A good witch.
(and there are no clear pictures of me as a good witch! That's what you get when the photographer is IN the picture! Oh, well! You get the idea!)Seth and Lily practicing!
Seth chose to be a KState football player and Emma was a fairy. Her and her freshman friends had a pumpkin carving party and then joined us for soup and then trick or treating. Then we all came back to our house for more treats and a scary movie night-slumber party. The scary movies didn't last they ended up watching "The Proposal"! That's my girl! We had a fun night!
