We are thankful for...

(We did this craft just before Thanksgiving, just forgot to post!)

Grant:  Christmas, food, the new baby, family toys

Bryce:  my family, my friends, Christmas, Jesus coming down to save me, my birthday, the baby

Carter:  Busch Gardens, electricity, donuts, clothes, ribs

Davis:  the castle (a toy), my train set, the dragons (toys), for everything

Celebrating Bryce

In November we celebrated Bryce's 8th birthday with a party at LaserQuest.  Laser tag and eight-year-old boys go together better than peanut butter and jelly.  It's a match made in heaven.  Bryce, his friends and his brothers all had a blast.  It was pure boy joy.  Bryce was also grateful to have a lot of his family at his party.  Our children have been blessed with a loving family and many great friends.

Bryce is a super fun boy.  He loves to play hard, whether it's climbing as high as he can up a tree, riding a bike as fast as he can down a hill, jumping the most times in a row on the pogo stick, or creating his own weapons for backyard wars between the boys (slingshots out of sticks and pine cone grenades).  Bryce is a kind brother, looking out for his younger siblings and often offering to help out around the house.  He is especially gifted in math and amazes us with his ease at memorization and abstract thinking.  We are grateful to see the Lord working in Bryce as his love for God and others continues to become more evident in his actions and attitudes.  What a joy it is to have Bryce in our family!  We love you, Bryce, and look forward to seeing all that God has in store for you in the year ahead!
