Pumpkin Painting! :)

He had a good time painting his pumpkins...


I love his concentration....



He is a little artist!






I love you so much Nathan Lee!!

Nathan with his girls....

Nathan and I were at the house last Saturday night and we heard the back garage door open. When we looked up, we saw Madi and Haily. They came over to suprise us and to play with Nathan. I enjoyed there company, even though it was really Nathan's company, because when Matthew is on nights, it gets really lonely sometimes. Nathan was so excited to see them. He got his Halloween costume and started trying to scare them. Note: he won't actually put it on :)

Here he is scaring Madi....that is his girlfriend he says.


I think he got her!



Then it was Haily's turn!



Haily put it on and started chasing him around the house! :)


They were having so much fun!




Then they gave the T-Rex a drink, because he was thirsty after all that playing :)


I'm so thankful Nathan has people in his life (other than family of course) who love him and make time to spend with him.

State Fair of Texas

Saturday, October 16, we went to the state fair of Texas! Nathan had so much fun riding all the rides.


Nathan with his two cousins, Holli and Colton!






He even rode the "roller coaster" with his aunt Kelly.







He was then ready for some lunch...when you go to the fair, you have to have something fried....we chose fried cheese sticks! :)


"Mommy, that's a BIG man!" -Nathan


The family with Big Tex


Then we went into the air conditioning to look at some cool cars!





Then it was back to more rides....







Nathan fell asleep while walking to the parking lot...


It was a great day of fun at the state fair!

today...

Today I felt....
discouraged
hurt
upset
what's the use
why do I even try
hopeless
bitter
anger
struggle
revenge
dejected
weak
disappointed
fail
suffering
tears running down my face

Then I stopped and said a prayer....

Suddenly I felt:

thankfulness
gratitude
comfort
compassion
faith
grace
peace
freedom
unity
salvation
hope
love
the cross
happiness
joy
obedience

"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Epeshians 5:1-2

This is so hard sometimes.

Nathan's First Pet! :)

This weekend Nathan got his first pet....a red-eared turtle! He has been wanting a pet turtle for a long time now. You may remember me posting about hatching turtle eggs, but they didn't survive. Ever since then, we have been on the hunt for the perfect pet turtle.


We found this one at first monday in Canton.




Meet Tuck the turtle!!!



Nathan thought that Tuck needed to go outside and needed a play mate, so he brought Tuck and his fake turtle outside.



He then decided to lay with the turtles...LOL!








Tuck!!





Nathan sure does love this little turtle!!
