Thanksgiving Week

We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving week. Brian (my brother) and Debbie came with their three kids and we had a wonderful time. We also had Glen (other brother) and Bekah here for a day. I know I haven't been posting a picture daily as I wanted to, but I'm not giving up! : )
We have SOOO many blessing to be thankful for, and all of our family and friends are at the top of the list!
Unfortunely we didn't take a picture of our Thanksgiving feast, but I'll be posting a few pictures of what we did during the week. Today's pictures are of a hike to Charleston Fall. It was a beautiful day and we had a fun time because Brian and Debbie taught us how to geo-cache. (You use GPS to search for "treasure" that people have planted for you to find. The kids loved it!)

Handsome boy!

Is this a handsome kid or what? This picture was taken this summer when we were on our trip to see family in Idaho/Utah. Okay, I know I haven't been posting a picture a day--but I'm going to keep trying! So keep checking, grandparents. : )

Hunter knows...


Okay, he knows a lot more than that. : ) But I thought these were fun pictures. I LOVE the stage that he's in right now, wish I could freeze his adorable little cuddly self here forever. He is now trying to repeat words after us and I love that!

St. Jude's Trike-athon at Preschool

It was a fun day at preschool for Benjamin. They had a "trike-athon" to earn money for St. Jude's hospital. Benjamin rode over 60 laps!!! It made me dizzy just watching him. : ) He had a lot of fun and it was really cute to see the kids working hard to ride their bikes/trikes/scooters. And, of course, Hunter wanted to be a part of the action. : )

We had such a great afternoon a few days ago. We went to a park where Benjamin could ride his bike around a trail, but we got derailed at the baseball diamond. I should have known it would be the fun place, since it's dirt. We played there for an hour, rolling a golf ball to see how far we could make it go and using a stick to make an X in the dirt where it landed. The last picture here is of Benjamin's dinosaur footprints. Both of the boys had a lot of fun (so did I) and it was a great reminder of life's simple pleasures.

Happy Halloween!

A few Halloween pictures for you to enjoy...
Here are our two amazing bats (Minus Benjamin's batman mask/cape; see the next picture for full effect.)

Notice the grip that Hunter has on his bucket. There was NO way he was letting go of that thing!!!

These are some good friends that we went trick or treating with for a little bit.

I just thought this family of bees was really cute!!!
