LIfe @ 4

Nate turned 4!!

Each year we have an "annual photo session" on their birthday. Craig is snapping shots of the boys all the time, but we call this their official annual protrait.

Of course being fall, Nate's annual portrait takes place while playing in the leaves.

For comparison here is his 1st year portrait.

The hat was a fixture on his head at age 2.

And @ 3 yrs old...

Of course Andrew gets his photo taken too!

For some reason he kept going over to his own little stash of leaves that had been mulched up into tiny pieces. Those little pieces got into every room in the house not to mention every cranny of his body! But oh was he having fun.

The Lord has truly blessed us!

Boys, trucks & leaf piles

What started out as 3 leaf piles ended up as a driveway in our front yard on November 1st...

Here is a video I took from my camera. The boys were putting the finishing touches on the "driveway". You'll have to use your imagination a bit :).

They (mostly Nate) worked very hard for a total of 2 1/2 hours building this driveway.

This video is totally unscripted & unedited - so the random acts of kindness you witness are just that!

It is just under a minute long. The audio is a little hard to follow with the sound of rustling leaves.
