In honor of the last day of November...

I am going to post our November numbers!!  Ha!  (We get them in the beginning of the month...) For anyone who is keeping up, maybe this will just make you extra-excited because it will look like we jumped a lot in just one week! :)

So, here you go:
On the girls list we are 75
On the boys list we are 48
On the siblings list we are 41

This has been such a sweet journey for us this far, and I am so thankful that the Lord has led us here...on a journey to pick up the newest little Crenshaw in Ethiopia.  We pray for protection so often, and just wonder what he/she is doing right now.  As we sit around the Christmas tree reading a verse for the Advent season, is he/she being read to?  As we kiss our kids goodnight and snuggle with them while we read, is he/she being cuddled and rocked?  As we eat and talk around the dinner table each night, is he/she getting regular meals?  We think about him/her all the time...and we can't wait to go to Ethiopia!!!

Here are some things from the last month...

Eliana turned TWO!  I still can't believe it!  She wanted a Minnie Mouse birthday party, so we had a little family get together at the park.  Here she is opening presents and then her Minnie Mouse birthday cake!


I am on a different computer tonight, so I can't figure out how to get these pictures positioned right!

We headed to Knoxville  a few weeks ago to see family and take Austin to his first UT football game!  It was awesome!  Here is a picture of all the cousins, and then us at the game!

(LOVE those sweet nephews!)


The next weekend we headed to Newbern to have an early Thanksgiving!  We had a great time at Mema's and then Aunt Blair hosted us for Thanksgiving dinner!

Here is a picture of Aunt Blair and Baby Joey (!!!) with our girls:


We had a great Thanksgiving in Memphis, and my grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins all came up from AL.  I have no idea why I don't have any pictures, but it was a sweet time!

We closed the weekend with some Christmas decorating!  Here are the kids in front of the tree:


 Shew!  How is that for a November recap!?!   I will post our numbers in a few days when we get them!! :)
