Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving time is here again! It's hard to believe that this time last year, Howie & I were sharing our decision to move to Tennessee - for Howie to work here, and for us to be closer to our families. We give thanks for this, and many other joys and opportunities the Lord has given us in this last year...

Our sweet, angel boys, of course... Watching them grow & change is always so amazing! And their relationship with each other has become that of, not just brothers, but "best buddies", too.

Being near our families has been wonderful! Nothing can compare to being able to spend time with each other.

God has truly provided for us, as well. We have a nice home here in Tennessee, and now we can say it's the only home we own! Hooray!!! Our house in Georgia sold this week!!!

Howie is enjoying his job, and the change of pace it has brought. He's been challenged in different ways, and is learning new things. The clinic has also brought me a "one-day/week job", as well as new friends.

As always, we're grateful for our health and our safety.

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His love endures forever."
Psalm 136:1

Cade's Birthday Party

The Freeman & Via families gathered once again this past Saturday to celebrate Cade's birthday! We are very blessed to be close enough to come together for such happy events! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR BEING HERE!!
I think everyone had a good time. The children certainly enjoyed themselves - playing together and eating cake & ice cream! YUM! Cade loved having his cousins around, and really liked his "tractor cake", too! He wasn't very interested in opening his presents, but he's sure had a great time playing with them!! THANKS, again...
We love you all!

Happy Birthday, Cade!

Our baby boy, Cade, is 2-years-old today!
CADE - You are growing & changing so quickly!
You're now 34 1/2 lbs, and 36 1/2 inches tall... Plus, you talk up a storm, are pretty quick on your feet, and are becoming more & more independent, too. Some things haven't changed, though... You still love your "boppy", and think your big brother is the funniest person around!

Cotton Pickin' Time

One of the greatest luxuries of being back in Tennessee and closer to family is the ability to participate in special events - like cotton pickin' time! The local kindergarten classes usual field trip out to various farms in the county to learn a little bit about agriculture and to experience picking cotton - by hand, that is! The boys & I traveled to Cacki & Papa's house to take part in this activity ourselves. We had a really good time! Andi Cate and Brooks were participating, also, so that made the trip doubly-fun!

I tried really hard to get them both to look & smile at the same time, but there were way too many distractions! HA! Happy pickin' boys!

Hudson & Andi Cate were a true cotton pickin' team! Hudson carried the bag while Andi Cate picked the cotton. (Both did what the other didn't want to! HA!) They scaled the field from one end to the other!

Cade was a slow movin' picker, but he did fill his bag about half-way. Brooks, on the other hand, was his own cotton pickin' machine! He had his bag filled in no time!

Thanks, again, Cacki, Papa Ross, Aunt Candi, and Aunt Sa-Sa! We had a fantastic time!
