Yes, it is my brother Jeremy's, my husband's, and my brother in law Adam's birthday... but I was at Time Out For Women. Here I am with Hilary Weeks. I love her music. Visit http://hilaryweeks.com for more info!
After Time Out For Women, Tom and the boys left for a Stake Dance (literally before I walked in the door...) So it was NOT the day we celebrated Tom's birthday.

New-to-us car. It's an '07 Ford Focus, which makes our 5th Ford... (our first Escort, our Windstar, our Econoline, our second Escort, and now the Focus...) We've needed a second car for a while now... ever since the second Escort (our $900 wonder...) died.
Tom telling the kids the story of "The Ransom of Little Red Chief" by O'Henry. This was before Family Home Evening.

Geotrax are out again! And the kids are working together to get great interactive tracks, with complex workings. Fun to play with and change, too!

One of the cool things about our trip to Nauvoo. In the blacksmith shop, they actually heat up iron and make something right in front of you... a tiny horseshoe. Then they give it to someone in the group. This time, they asked whose birthday was closest to Joseph Smith's birthday. (December 23rd). Tom spoke up and said, "well, my wife's is December 21st... " So we came home with a tiny, still warm, horseshoe.
Goodbye, Illinois! We stopped by the Nestle Pumpkin plant on our way out of town (where my mom-in-law works). This lot is FULL of trucks with pumpkins in the fall and late summer!
Our family in front of the window in the upper bedroom in Carthage Jail, where Joseph Smith the prophet was killed.
Every time I come here my testimony is a little stronger, of the difference in our lives because of this man.
Our family is 2 daughters larger since the last time we took this picture :)
Happy 10th birthday to our Nathanael!
He was in a hurry to get here, and now he takes his time! :)
Now a Webelos Scout and in the 4th grade, we're very proud of Nathanael.
