Birthdays – I’ve had a few. In my case – 72! But my November Family Calendar is filled with much more than just my birthday! There are 7 other birthdays in our family starting with –
Dear BIL Fitz! He’s the “ancient of days” member of our family these days and he turned 80 on November 4th! He drives me a little crazy sometimes, but I still love him just the same. I especially love the way he loves his family and his Lord! He’s a keeper!
Next up is Maddie on the 8th –
SIXTEEN!!! How can that even be??? She’s a love – and seeing the beautiful young woman she is becoming is exciting!
Then comes me on the 9th!
My day was filled with a little work, a little play (i.e. ice cream), and a good solid nap! Throw in calls and greetings from folks whom I love – and it was a very good day indeed!
Today (the 10th), this young man turned 7!
Hugh is a great-nephew and a fabulous game player! We’re looking forward to some great competition at next summer’s Family Reunion!
Coming up on the 17th is another great-nephew, Noah, who turns 14.
He’s the oldest of 6 -and from all that we can see, is a great big brother!
Great-nephew Stephen turns 16 on November 20 – he’s quite the athlete and hunter (and much less grainy than this picture would indicate!).
As we wrap up the month, we wish my lovely sister-in-law, Sharon, a very happy (mumble)th birthday on the 21st! We’re so glad you’re part of our family!
And finally – our Thanksgiving grandbaby, Hayley, turns 19 on the 26th!
These years are going by way too fast. But we are thankful for each birthday we get to celebrate. I consider November my Birthday Month (and I like to celebrate all month long) and I’m so very happy to share the month with these beautiful family members!
Birthdays. Yes, I’ve had a few…..
