Happy Thanksgiving!

From my family to yours, hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving! I don't know about you, but this has ALWAYS been my favorite holiday - from the food, being with family, playing Whoopie (get your head out of the gutter, it's a card and dice game), I have fond memories of this holiday!

One thing we will will be doing today is documenting some of our Thanksgiving memories. We are spending the day with my mom's family, and I plan to take a picture of each person there. I also have a handout (teacher in me) for each of them to fill out, asking them their favorite Thanksgiving day food, fondest memory, what they are most thankful for this year, etc. I plan to make a scrapbook (and hopefully one for my grandma, too, for Christmas).

Even in the hard times our country is currently facing, we each have so much to be thankful for. Enjoy the day!

My baby's turning "10"!

So tomorrow is a milestone in Evan's life...double digits! I can't believe it - I still consider myself on the "young" side, but when put in perspective with my kids ages, it begins to scare me! I will have pictures to share tomorrow - we actually had his birthday party last Sunday. We are headed out to meet our good friends for dinner tonight - today is Courtney's birthday! And then off to buy cupcakes for him to take to school tomorrow (the thought of baking scares me).

On a whiter note, the boys awoke to quite a bit of snow this morning. I snowed off and on last night, but there was a good 5-6 inches this morning! And here in Indiana, the first sign of snow means slower traffic - it seems that people forget what it's like to drive in this type of weather. I often think driving slower is more dangerous, but that's just my personal opinion (not that I speed or anything, mom).

Hope you have a great night! Pictures to post tomorrow!!

Bug Attack!!!

The boys were given all these bugs by their great grandma when they went trick-or-treating.  Easton has been playing with them ever since!

Halloween pictures

It was a beautiful night for Trick-or-Treat!  Our town had it on Thursday...our subdivision was so busy!  Easton and Bullseye were troopers - he walked the entire time, dragging Bullseye's feet behind him!  Evan had fun with his friends (I can't believe how quickly he is growing up!).  And now, it's November already!  Where has this year gone???
