Christmas Fun

This weekend we had a great time!! We went to the Jenks Holiday Parade Saturday morning (which the boys loved mostly for all the candy!) And then we came home and put up all of our holiday stuff. We usually do it the weekend after Thanksgiving, but we are going to be gone, so we choose this weekend. Hey, if your gonna get all that stuff out, you might as well enjoy it, right? :D The boys had a ball.

The top picture is the boys and I. We are not standing on steps or anything! I realized the other day that Ethan comes up to right under my chin!! I had Clay measure to E, and he tucks right in under Ethans chin! We were going to take a picture of the 3 of us and realized that Micah tucks under Clay!! Isnt that cool? It will prob never happen like that again!! We've got some tall dudes!

California Trip!!!

Last weekend, Mom, Betsy and I headed to California for a quick trip to see the Grandmother. Seeing Uncle Dave and Aunt Kay was a great bonus too!!! :D We all got in Friday (well, after Betsys plane was delayed, she showed up EARLY Saturday!). The next morning, we got up and headed out to Modesto, to the Cook house. What a great house!!! :D It was so fun to see Grandmother, and she was excited to see us and have "company". We sat and chatted for awhile, and then decided to go on a trip to Yosemite National Park. It was about a 2 hour drive away, around steep and curvy roads! About 1/2 way there, we popped a tire! What an adventure that was. It took a little while to get fixed, but back on the road we went!! Betsy and I entertained everyone with a few AMAZING renditions of "Great Adventure" by Steven Curtis Chapman. Can you believe Grandmother said she couldnt understand us???? :D We stopped at several vistas to check out the view. At one place, we were able to see Yosemite Falls! It was so cool....beautiful. We also saw El Capitain...which I've heard about for years! It was a long trip, but amazing. And the best part, Grandmother said as we were driving home, she'd had a wonderful day. It was a Great Adventure!!!!! :D

Happy Halloween!

As we all know, last Friday night was Halloween!!! We had a crazy day, but Nana and I made it to both the little dudes fall parties. They had a lot of fun!! It was a nutso afternoon, but we made it. We came home and chilled for a little bit, then started carving the pumpkin we'd gone with Nana and Papa T to get. The boys loved it...getting their hands dirty, choosing what face to carve. Fun stuff. Finally, it was time to trick or treat!! We met up with our friends the Barths, as we always do, and after we were done with that neighboorhood, we had to empty out their buckets!!! Then we went for another round in our area. They made quite a haul! :D They were all exhausted by the time it was all over. HOpe you all had a good one too!!
