Thanksgiving at our house

It was so cute, Jacksons Kindergarten class had a little Thanksgiving program. His teacher had them make homemade cornbread w/ butter, fingerprint turkeys, pilgrim hats and ties, and candles. Then after they ate their cornbread they sang a bunch of Thanksgiving songs that was really cute. Its been fun to enjoy all the fun things they do at school for the kids.

Jackson made Megan an Indian head band since she didn't have a hat. She loves being like her older brother. It was very sweet of him to think about her without.

My three cute kids with glasses and goggles on.

Some pictures of us just having some fun hanging out at home with the cold weather and all. Crazy Megan is always pulling her silly faces.

Dave played at the Turkey Bowl they have every Thanksgiving with Jackson and his cousins and Uncle. They had so much fun. Dave was glad not to have a broken hand this year like last year.

It was great having some family come to visit us for Thanksgiving. We had so much fun hanging out, playing and watching football, playing at the park, and going shopping on Black Friday, and having such yummy food for Thanksgiving. We had so much fun being with all of them.

We made some fun turkeys with rice krispies, oreos, chocolate frosting, and candy corns. I thought it was a fun and easy idea.

Megan loves to play with Whitney and hide from her under her highchair. Whitney couldn't find Megan anywhere and then Megan would peek up and surprise her. It was way cute!

Running the Louisville 1/2 Marathon!

This past weekend I ran in the Louisville 1/2 Marathon. It was a lot of fun, they had bands on the sides of the roads, water stations, and lots of people cheering us on. I've been training for it for at least a few months. I was kind of nervous doing it since I've never run an actual race that was timed and all, but it went good. I had to really push myself through it of course,but I did really well finishing till the end. I had a finishing time of 2 hours 9:20. I was pretty tired of course afterwards, but it felt great accomplishing my goal. Thanks to my cheering team on the side lines. Dave, Jackson, Megan, and Whitney were there to cheer me on. Thanks you guys!

Happy Halloween!

These took some time to upload and put on my blog, but they're here. Life is a lot busier now. We had a wonderful Halloween and hope you did too!

Our two cute little Tinkerbells.

We had a Ward Halloween Party last week and brought these brownie pumpkins to it. Jackson helped me decorate them. It was too bad it rained. We had trunk or treat inside the gym which was a little crowded, but still a lot of fun.

This year for Halloween Jackson was Spiderman for our ward party and his school parade and a Transformer for Trick or Treating. Megan was Tinkerbell for the party and a Barbie princess for Trick or Treating. I only dressed up Whitney for the party. It was too cold on Halloween to put her in her costume, figured it'd be better to keep her warm. For the party Dave dressed up as Zorro and I was his partner in crime.

Megan just loves to pose for the camera. Its lucky she is so cute, she's a tuff one thats for sure.

Some pictures of Jacksons Kindergarten parade at his school and of him and Megan with a few friends. It was cute to see him hold Megans hand to walk around all the classes with his class.

I had to do a little photo shot with Megan after I got her all ready for going Trick or Treating. I did it quick since I knew her hair wouldn't last long.

Carving our pumpkins together.

This year I decided I was determined to make a soccer ball. Dave, my wonderful Mechanical Engineer, helped me do it. I thought it turned out pretty good. Jackson wanted the spider from Spiderman, Megan wanted a funny face, and Dave did a huge eye ball. We love finding something new to do every year that will challenge us.

It was so much fun to take Megan and Jackson Trick or Treating this year. They had so much fun and got plenty of candy.

Whitney found Megans princess bucket and got caught taking some. Uh oh!

Still happy though. She's our little angel and is always so content.
