Before we get further along in December I need to post about Rachel's 14th birthday on November 21!
Here she is posing by the clock on the stove -- her "birth moment" was 6:14 a.m. Then there were cinnamon rolls for breakfast as we all hurried out the door -- Rachel to school and the boys and I to an all-day adventure in Fort Wayne.
While Rachel toiled away at school, the boys and I were touring a chocolate factory, sampling chocolate, shopping at Hobby Lobby, and going bowling and putt-putting. Can you guess who was having more birthday fun?
In the evening we had Beef Stroganoff and presents to open.
Laura made a special card for her sister. She is so proud to have Rachel as her older sister.
Since it is not a year for an official party we decided on allowing Rachel to see a movie with a few friends and then having them join us for dinner on Saturday, along with a cake.
Yay for 14!!!!
Once the birthday was over it was full speed toward Thanksgiving!
