Happy Turkey Day

We have so much to be thankful for this year we couldn't possibly list everything. Especially spending the holiday with those we love so much! We ate way to much food, had lots of crafts to keep the little ones busy and just had a relaxing day together!

Griffin's favorite holiday for sure, non-stop eating all day long!

Every Thanksgiving Rick and Lacey take a pie and some bubbly to the firefighters for a treat to say thanks for their service to our community so we all went along to deliver the goods. The boys thought it was especially neat when the firefighters showed us around the "fire crucks" just like in their books they have at home.

We decorated gingerbread houses in the evening. The boys wanted to eat all the candy and some of it ended up on their house but then our houses didn't survive the short-very short car ride home and all collapsed into a pile when we got home. Oh well, maybe we'll try to decorate another one if we get time.

Disney On Ice

Ava and I went on a little mommy-daughter date to Disney On Ice. It was the stories of all the princesses so I figured she would love it, and she did. Her favorites were Cinderella and The Little Mermaid. We had fun spending the evening just the two of us!

She thought the music at times was too loud and she also wanted me to cover her eyes if there was a scary villan, it was funny.

The Zoo

Last week aunt Katherine called with a last minute trip to the zoo so we decided to go along! It was a perfect Fall day to be outside. There were so many cute new baby animals. The kids favorite for sure was the baby elephant, we hadn't seen yet!

This year the boys were monkey's and Ava was a kitty cat! We did the traditional door to door trick-or-treating with the cousins. The kids thought it was fabulous and got way more candy than they needed and are still eating it. Everyone looked so cute in their coustumes and had a great time!

Gardner Village Witches

We took a little trip up to Gardner Village to see the witches before Halloween but the day we could go ended up being absolutely freezing cold so we did a quick walk through and didn't stay long! Next year we'll have to get a better start going before it turns to winter!
