Homemade Pasta YUM!!! I love cooking with my kids. Even dad helped out with this one. We get to laughing and they are always so proud of the work they do. I hope to do it more often this year then we have in the past. In fact as I post this we are waiting for some cookies to finish in the oven :)

After the morning photo shoot I met up with the family and we headed downtown Portland. I must Confess I did not have time to empty my photo card so the pictures were limited :)
Miss C brought her list so she would remember all the things she wanted to tell Santa. Yes Mr C is wearing shorts and a tee shirt that is all he wears no days. I have been told this is common and I am hoping it is a phase that he out grows :)

Book overview from Amazon:
Maybe in the wide-open country she can learn to breathe again.
Happily married and owner of two successful boutiques, Jade longs to begin a family with her husband, Max. But when she discovers that Max has an illegitimate son—who he wants her to help raise—Jade’s life is turned upside down.
She flees to her childhood home, a rambling Iowa farmhouse, with enough room to breathe. There— while her mother’s health grows fragile, and the tug of her first love grows stronger—Jade begins to question everything she thought she knew about family, love, and motherhood. In the wide-open landscape, Jade begins to see a future that doesn’t rest on the power of her past, but in the goodness of God's tender mercies.

I Love this Family! As you can see by the smiles one their faces they are so much fun to be with! It is and honor and a privilege to know them and spend time with them. It is crazy to think just how long we have known each other I will not say the years as that would just make us feel old :)
Melney thank you for all the years we spend together in youth group, as students and Couches, thank you for loving and caring for my kids while I was working, and most of all the many hours of listening and good advice. I hope we can get together soon and chat. You and your family are truly beautiful inside and out!
