style which is WILD! Had a blast with some of his school buddies with his sleepover for his birthday! Luckily we had some wonderful family here (nonna and papa) to keep things under control! Oh how thankful we were to have them here! Such a great visit with family! Always thrilled to have guests!!! Our Noah is 8 and growing up so fast! He is such a character! Keeps us entertained and on our toes! He is sweet and kind hearted and as much as that boy has a hard time using self control he melts our hearts with his politeness and knowledge of our God. His heart felt prayers make my eyes water and his love of nature and hunting make me proud to have a son!!! I love this boy! The only one of my babies to come into this world on their own 2 weeks early!!!!! It's fitting really.... :) he says he's gonna live with us forever, he'll get a job and buy his own food, but he wants to live here! :) He will eat anything and everything!!!! I am so proud he is my boy!!!!! Just in case you didn't know... Noah was named after me and Nathan's initials. When we were dating in high school/college when we wrote letters to each other.... We would write our initials N.O. A. H. Forever!!!! My maiden name was Hendrickson. :) so our initials spelled Noah. We always said if we had a son we would name him Noah ..... First baby.... A boy!!!! Destined for that name! He loves his story and thow he got his name! :)
Hope everyone is getting ready for a Happy Thanksgiving! We have been a bit under the weather with Lil Miss Jensie. But we are gearing up for a big Thanksgiving treat!!!! What??? Another guest???? Whoo hoooo!!! I love surprises!!! I have a lovely one coming to see me!!!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and have that extra piece of pie eh? I sure will be!!!!! :) mmmmmmm! So many blessings! Such a full life! So, so much to be thankful for!!!!!!
