Pictures and Birthday

Here are some recent pics of us....mostly the boys! Dawson got his hair cut this past week. So we took some before and after shots. We didn't do so well with cutting his hair, so I made Renato stop cutting, then we called our friend Rachel to come over and finish it up....and fix our mistakes. :) He looks so grown up now....:(

And after "we" cut his hair and before Rachel came to fix it...

And with big brother...

And it was Daddy's Birthday this week!!!! We got to celebrate with friends last night and it was such a blessing to be surrounded by friends in our home again!

Yes...I made the cake. :)

The family!!!

Camden Thinks We Need to go Shopping

So here's a little funny I want to record for the future. :)

Early this morning, as I was preparing breakfast, both boys were playing. Suddenly Camden got up, came over to me and said, "We need to go buy a new baby." At first I wasn't sure I heard him correctly, so I asked him, "What did you say Buddy?" And he very clearly stated....."We need to go buy a new baby. This one's not good, he's too stinky."

And if you know Camden, he KNOWS what he's talking about and will try to convince you of it. (Yes, he's definitely a leader.)

So as I was trying not to laugh, I explained that Dawson is a gift from God, and that God gave him to us to take care of, love, kiss, and hug. And Camden just looked at me and said, "OK." Then he proceeded to go give Dawson a kiss. :)

I have no idea where Camden got the idea to go buy a new baby from, but he was certain he knew what he was talking about. :) I have a feeling it may be because Dawson is now doing the "Army" crawl and getting into all of Camden's things, so Camden thinks buying a new baby would probably make his life a bit easier. Ha!

Menu Plan for the week of Nov. 16th and Misc.

We're looking forward to a good week ahead as it's Renato's birthday on Wednesday. I'll cook his favorite's on Wednesday, but we'll have a small party with friends over on Sunday. Also, we have the house almost completely painted! Yay! Renato has worked soooo hard painting this house. He's pretty much exhausted from this past week. We're praying for good work/job opportunities and connections coming soon. We continue to pray for God's provision, and grace. It's so nice to feel like we're getting "settled in"! I pray for a wonderful week ahead!
