A Birthday, An Early Thanksgiving and A Milestone

Wow, the last month has been super busy so this post has been in draft for awhile waiting for pictures. To start it off we went up to our home in north Georgia as the hubby was asked to help at the plant near our home there for the week. It was nice to get to spend time with family. The kids always enjoy getting to stay for awhile and go to my mom's school and do sleepovers with the grandparents. It was made even better because we celebrated Josiah's birthday all week long.

His actual birthday was spent rather quietly but the next day we went to my mom's tutorial school to celebrate with his friends. We brought cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday and that made his day. Since moving to south Georgia the kids have really missed seeing their friends at school. They are making new friends here but they always  enjoy spending time with their old friends.

At the end of the week we went to my mother-in-law's for an early Thanksgiving with all the family. We don't get to see Nana as much as we would like so it was a special treat to get to spend the night there. She had gotten a Ninja Turtle cake for Josiah so we got to sing to him for a second time after a wonderful dinner. The kids definitely did not want to leave and hopefully we will get back up there soon.

To top the week off we celebrate Josiah's birthday one more time at my Grandmother's home. Josiah asked for a Jake and the Neverland Pirates cake with lots of crocodiles. I love making our children's birthday cakes. They may not be the best looking but seeing their face when their ideas come to life is amazing. Josiah enjoyed helping this year by placing the figurines on the cake. Josiah loved being doted on. Sometimes I feel like he gets the least amount of attention because he is the quietest. So I really love to make him the center of attention every now and then.

Once we got back home I almost let Hezekiah turning four months old slip by unnoticed. He is so big and strong I often forget he is so young. He is already out growing his 3-6 month clothes in length. He his quite the talker, loves to play peek-a-boo and be tickled. His smile is infectious and has an instant calming affect on everyone.

I am so thankful God blessed us with our cuddly, sweet, caring Josiah and our happy, bubbly Hezekiah. I cannot imagine our family without them.
