Thankful Thursday - What Matters Most In The World


Our son, Benjamin's, 11th birthday is this Saturday so of course such a momentous occasion makes me stop and take pause, relfecting on how truly lucky we are to have this incredible boy in our lives. Our other son, Samuel, is 12 (soon to be a teenager!) and sometimes I can't remember what life was like before them. And I don't want to. It's all for them. We work hard, we play hard, we try to teach them values and ethics, our world revolves around them. And I certainly wouldn't have it any other way.

So, happy birthday to one of the two greatest kids in the universe... Happy Birthday Ben! We love you!

Oh, and because I never get tired of sharing our gorgeous area, I've included a photo of our boys at Multnomah Falls, just 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon. Ben's the one on the right.

Awesome blog!! here is a suggestion for s very low cost birthday present. Your boys will love them.

Each year for both of my kids I makeup a flyer of a one page open house brochure only with almost all pictures taken from the time of their last birthday until about two days before the next.

about 10 or 12 pictures of all sizes of my favorites... I then post them all around the home...maybe inside the cupboard where the dishes are, bedroom wall, foyer wall... garage door...bedroom closet...etc...

I put up the number of their birthday (unless they are really young and then I put up more.)  The kids love them and I keep an extra one or two for grandparents and for the scrapbook.  My son turned 21 the other day and I went over and left one at his college apartment and he was thrilled that it was there on the door when he came out...

Here are this years that are above my computer screen...sorry the picture is not better... I will do a blog on it...
