Happy Birthday, Mom!

February means it’s time to celebrate Mom’s birthday! We watched some old home videos which gave us a little appreciation for what Mom (and Dad) went through in all the years raising all of us kids – we were an active bunch! We’re thankful for Mom, and look forward to the seeing the ways God is going to continue to work in her life.

Enjoying our meal

We enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner together around the table!

Matthew carved the turkey – he has plenty of experience from all the years carving one of the turkeys at the extended Bennett family Thanksgiving get-together
Lydia slicing the cranberry jelly

Here’s some pictures of some of us with Mom over this past year!

We also celebrated Valentine’s Day this week in a way perhaps a bit different than most people …and had a candlelight dinner for 12! 🙂

Kathryn made Jello Jigglers – a sweet reminder of Grandma, who used to make Jello Jigglers for us on Valentine’s Day.
Mom’s favorite Bible verse:
“Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me.”

Psalm 51:10
