Ethan's present. This should actually be my present since it keeps him entertained so well

Catch Up- Picture Edition

What a busy month so far! I'll just use pics to highlight what's happened.

We decorated the tree...
Brayden had his Kindergarten Christmas program. He did awesome! His favorite song was "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"
Brayden's teacher Ms. Conrad. She's incredible and Brayden loves her.
Brayden visited Santa. Tawny isn't pictured because she wouldn't go within 20 feet of him. Oh-well. Maybe next year.
But she did write him a letter. The first thing she asked for was new boots for Mommy. I don't want to disappoint her so we may have to make it happen. Only for her though...
Tonight we decorated gingerbread houses.
Tawny's was....interesting....
Ethan is getting so big! And even cuter (is that possible?)
One of my favorite places to be.

This year for Thanksgiving we did a "thanks" tree and a "giving tree". Every day in November we each wrote on separate leaves something we are thankful for and some act of service we gave. We did just the thanks tree last year and I loved the addition of the giving tree because I think the best way we can show our gratitude to our Heavenly Father for all he has given us is by serving others. The kids really enjoyed filling our trees with leaves. I loved watching them actively search for ways to serve. I think this may become a tradition.

What am I thankful for most? My family.

Ethan Pics

Not much to say. Just wanted to include some pics of Ethan since he was MIA last post. He such a cutie and happy baby. I know he's awake in the morning not because he's crying, but because he's making happy baby sounds. And he's learned to sleep through the night! He'll go from about 9pm to about 5:30 in the morning and I'm pretty much always up by then anyways. It's so much easier to be happy when you get to sleep!

Picture Post

Warning: lots and lots of pics follow.

At the raceway in Vegas last weekend
a need for speed! (notice Tawny isn't paying attention AT ALL to where she is going? That was how it went pretty much the whole time. She crashed a lot)

Carving PumpkinsEwww!Since they can't carve themselves, they drew faces with markers and then we cut them out. After that they got to paint their pumpkins. They loved it!Clint's BirthdayHalloween day at schoolI made Tawny's costume this year. The entire thing was made out of upcycled clothing (except the trim and button) It turned out pretty cute
In case you can't tell, he's holding a fire hose and spraying out a fire
At the costume parade at Brayden's school. I was so glad they let Tawny participate.
The treats I made for Brayden's party. The pics are here at Brayden insistence. He thought they were pretty dang cool

Somehow I didn't take any pics of Ethan during this whole week. I'll make sure to take some this weekend. He's getting so big and is such a cutie!
