Thanksgiving Point





I'm so thankful that we live in an area that caters to families and set up fun activities like Cornbelly's up at Thanksgiving Point. Josh and Sam loved it, and us adults had fun too!

Hungry, Hungry Hippos



This was our activity for FHE yesterday. We went and bought the game and then taught Josh how to play. He got so into it we were worried he might hyperventalate. It was really cute!

Time to put the boat away!


We've been putting off putting the boat away, because we'd just filled up the boat with gas when the weather decided to turn on us. We were hoping we'd get a warm day when we could actually take it out. It's funny because Friday was really beautiful and we decided we'd better get a last ride in. We took her out just cruising around the lake as the sun was going down (it was too cold to get in the water). Then Saturday a big storm rolled in and dumped snow on us! It still has 1/2 a tank of gas- but I think its time to winterize and store it.

So here it is... the first real snow of the year. Josh was SO excited. Last year I bought him this snow suit, and it hardly got used because he was still pretty little to really want to play in the snow- so while the sleeves may be a tad short- I think it'll get some good use this year!This last one is of him charging me "Throw 'nowball at you Mom!"

Kitchen Update



So here's the kitchen with the new countertops, hardware, and stained cabinents. We still have a little bit of finish work (retouch painting, floorboards around bar, etc.) but it's a huge improvement, right?!

First Drawing

Josh brought this to me tonight saying, "Look Mama; Elephant!" Besides a couple "circles" or "triangles" this is the first time that Josh has ever drawn a recognizable picture and showed me what it was- and I just love it! In fact- I think I'm going to frame it. Don't you just love the big ears and large trunk- with the two little eyes on either side of the trunk?! I think its the best abstract elephant the world has ever known.

Family Shots


Maybe the family shot for our Christmas cards this year? What do you think? Its so hard to get two little boys and a dog to all look at the camera- this is the only one we have that wouldn't require major editing.

I think I like this shot so much because it reminds me that even though Josh is growing up SO fast- he's still little!

Cardboard Box Fun




After Conference on Sunday Jake helped Josh (who was already playing with this box) turn it into a car. Josh had SO much fun, in fact all this week it's been his favorite thing to play with. Maybe for Christmas we'll just give him a few boxes!
