9

1. Gabe stole this from our awesome dentist. My kids always find a magazine at the Dr. or dentist and want to steal a story or recipe.
 

2. Abraham brought me his bowl after he was done.  Soooo the story here is that the kiddos keep their bullet casings after they shoot at targets. 



3. Grandma Mimi bought us our first turkey..


4. Olivia sporting our wehelptwo socks.



5. This little guy is getting so big!!


6. The kiddos played so much Uno with Grandma Mimi and loved every minute of it.


7.  These 2 were so excited we had our first snow.  It was enough to play in too.  Bonus!!




8.  What would I ever do without kids in the house.  Gabe was trying to scare me after my shower.  
Abraham is totally scared of fake bugs and critters.


 9. Loving on others with some yummy cookies...

Socks



Here is how it works...

You order a package of super cute cozy socks (you get three pair!!!). They have men, women, boys, and girls sizes. We get 60% of the profit towards Abraham's Adoption  AND they will send us a pair of warm socks to donate to a local homeless shelter as well! Free pair to donate!!! That's it! It's that easy and that AMAZING!


Our family has ordered the socks... we love them! They are super cute! They would make excellent stocking stuffers, gift exchange, cute wear around the house, wear them out, donate to a local hospital.... the possibilities are unlimited!!!

You can order online by going HERE...

Just put campfunk when it asks Name of Organization you are Helping and we will get $9 for ever package you purchase! $9!!!! That is amazing! The socks will be shipped straight to you!


I am so incredibly excited about this! Fun socks that you can enjoy or give as a gift AND money towards Abraham's adoption AND a pair of warm socks we get to donate to a local person in need! It is just the most perfect thing I could possibly think of to raise funds! We are helping locally and globally! 



You can order from now until December 10! Once you order online your socks are shipped to you then, you won't have to wait until the end of the campaign! So if you need them for a holiday gift exchange at the beginning of December, no prob... they will get to you!

So order socks for yourself, your kids, your cousins, your grandma, your neighbor, your sports team, a stranger, to donate!!! We don't care who you order these super cute socks for, we just want you to order them! And share this story with your friends, because we want them to order socks too! You don't have to know us to help the cause!


I can't wait to see how God works through these socks! Thanks for joining us on the journey!

Happy Thanksgiving



Today we celebrate another year on this beautiful, broken, planet.

  We celebrate these last 3 years of our life in a different way since Dave's cancer diagnosis. There were hard days and easy days.
Bittersweet in so many ways. 

Another year added to the plate and who knew Little Abraham would be joining our family. 

God has moved mountains and dug some deep trenches.

The mercies of God cannot and will not fail and his faithfulness is unwavering.

Every sunrise proves the burn of his passionate heart. 

 God is completely amazing!

When we are weak, our God is strong.

He makes beautiful things out of us.

During those difficult times we grow.

 Each new challenge builds strength and character.

These are the moments that make it all worth it.  These are the moments that I hold on to.

My savior. 

My husband. 

 My family. 

 My friends. 

All of you being a part of Abraham's journey.
 
Undone thinking about the beauty that is this little life that we live each and every day.

Blessed...so very Blessed

 "We always thank our God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ!"

1 Thessalonians 1:2-3


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. 
We are so thankful for all of you in our lives.
We love you
 from the Funkhouser Family

Fun with Grandma Mimi and enjoying the last warm sunshine
 
Week 10 and 11

Odin is learning about WW 1, reading war horse and still doing the elements for Science.




Jonah studied about King Richard, Pluto, and reading about Robin hood.



Olivia is learning about the color purple in the early ages, speeiders, and Jesus birth.
 
Jeremiah is reading Alexander Hamilton and  Benjamin Franklin, and making stamps out of potatoes.


We had a very busy week with appointments and fun and all.
We went to the EAA Museum with our Home school group and it was awesome.  So many cool things. Lots of hands on things too. We could've stayed longer but had to get back.  

 









Between therapy, dentist appointments, AWANA, 2 kid well checks, Grandma Mimi's christmas shopping, Scoops, the Milwaukee Zoo, Costco, and everything else in between we had a wonderful visit.  It always goes so fast though.  
Thank you for everything!!! 

Our festival finds minus some pictures that we forgot to take.  Lots of sweets..thank you thank you thank you!



Hope you are off to a great week and stay warm!

this is how we roll lately...







this is the only way to keep Abraham off the table...


This little star has now taken up biting little people like him when he hugs them.  He gets so excited when he hugs them he bites them on their cheek or on their shoulder.  I have never had this with any of the kids before.  Crazy!  Any ideas besides saying no biting and showing him loving hands because that's how we roll.  



This guy is all Steelers..except the shorts!


This little star gets stuck with whomever!



My handsome officers.

The oldest and the youngest....




Our crazy ghostbuster!



Love this girl..

We picked up Grandma Mimi last Thursday and we couldn't be happier.  We are having a lot of fun with her.  

In the mean time things at the Funkhouser house seem to go in 3's. The treadmill track literally shredded, the dryer broke(all of the rollers) and we need 4 new tires on the suburban.  You gotta love this part of life!

Thank you all for helping us with our sock fundraiser.  We are so thankful and blessed.  It will be going on until December 10th.

  So order socks for yourself, your kids, your cousins, your grandma, your neighbor, your sports team, a stranger, to donate!!! We don't care who you order these super cute socks for, we just want you to order them! And share this story with your friends, because we want them to order socks too! You don't have to know us to help the cause!

Order cute socks, help pay for Abraham's adoption(don't forget to add campfunk in the checkout or we don't get the credit), supply warm socks for a local homeless person, feel awesome! It's that easy!
