we are so thankful for so many things: our children, our health, our friends, our family, our home, our jobs, a working car, food on the table, and mostly our Savior who sent his only Son to die for us.
psalm 92: 1-2
"it is good to give thanks to the Lord,
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
and Your faithfulness every night."
thank you to the Nordine's who opened their thanksgiving table to us. what a tasty feast!!

it took us a moment, but we soon realized that jacob is a little more observant than we give him credit for. here is a photo of our brand new local library...
and the little town of Bethlehem in jacob's book...
so while we're comparing things, i can't help but think how much jacob resembles Curious George every time we watch the movie. and i found this photo to do a little comparison to a picture i took of jacob this morning. ancestors? surely not.

jacob's on the verge of potty training. he does #1 on the potty about 3 times a day, yet still manages to fill his diapers with liquid in between. this child drinks ALL THE DAY LONG! he still doesn't seem interested in #2 on the potty, even though he has done it successfully once or twice. one thing is for sure- he certainly likes the undressing part of going potty. i find him several times a day in his birthday suit (for him everything needs to come off in order to go to the bathroom- pants, shirt, socks- everything). ahhhh...the joys of toddlerhood.
kate's been practicing her newly developed walking skills. she is now walking about 80% of the time, and only crawls when she is too fussy to walk. (i guess she gets lazy?)

aunt brianne and uncle kevin spent the weekend with us. we wnjoyed having them visit and i think they had a good time playing with the kids. i know jacob is now very fond of his uncle kevin. :)
we took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and had a fire on friday night. played outside, went shopping, watched the penn state game, and ate some great food on saturday. and said goodbye to them after lunch today.
we love seeing the kids interact with family- just wished we lived a bit closer to pittsburgh so we could see them more often.
