Thanksgiving week!

For Thanksgiving this year my Brother, Jed, his wife, TomiLee, their little boy, Sawyer, my Mom and Dad, and my Brother, Jordan all came to stay with us and have Thanksgiving together. It was so nice having family here for Thanksgiving. We went ice skating at an outdoor skating rink in Lakewood and had such a fun time. Rafe was a little hesitant at first, but once he was on the ice, he was loving it and didn't want to stop. We then went to one of my all time favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory. Yu-um!

The next day we drove up to Winter Park Resort. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful drive. The kids got to play in the snow and loved it!

Rafe and cousin Sawyer got to color a giant turkey that our friend Taylor Weitzeil made for my mom to bring. We used it for the Turkey shoot on T-Day. It was a hit!



Rafe sporting his Turkey hat that Grama La-Li brought for him and one for Sawyer Doodle. Now he is ready for the turkey shoot and the prizes he got for each shot.

Finn also got a chance to shoot for his prizes and he was a natural. All I did was position his hands and then.........(notice the orange dart in the second picture down....) Now you see it.....


Now you don't!!! He shot it on his own! He literally pulled the trigger all by himself. I was so surprised! What a little stud!

Cutest little Turkeys EVER!!!



Pa and La-Li with their grandies. The boys LOVED being with them!!! They all had such a fun time. I'm very grateful for my family and that they could come and be with us for Thanksgiving. I'm very thankful for my amazing husband and all of his hard work and love for us. I'm so very grateful to be a mother to two of the sweetest and cutest boys. I love my three boys very much and am thankful for the joy and happiness they bring to my life.

Halloween!!



Woody, Momma Angel, and my little Giraffe at the Halloween lunch at Ryan's school. They provided a lunch and had a costume contest and then we got to take the kids trick or treating through all of the offices.

Rafe had a blast trick or treating. He knew exactly what to do. He would run from house to house. This picture of him holding Ryan's hand was a one time thing....we couldn't contain the energy. He would go up to the doors, say "Trick or Treat" and then try to go inside the house. He even trick or treated the same house twice within a minutes time. He definitely knows what Trick or Treating is all about. It was so fun watching him! We could barely keep up with him.
