the kids couldnt wait to get out in the snow. The weather has been so wierd that we really hadnt had much snow that stuck around long enough to play in, but now is has stayed so cold its still here! days later. The kids made snow angels had snowball fights, helped clean the van and grandmas car off. And of course ate a few snowflakes. I was really cold out though!
It is the normal super busy holiday season. Thanksgiving flew by so fast! And we have loaded our calender with loads of holiday fun things to do. But time is flying by!!! I can't believe its only 13 days until christmas! yikes! In the mix of things my little girl lost her 2 front teeth so now she sings "all I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth" She is so cute. We had Thanksgiving at Ruth's house its close quarters but there isnt any other people I would rather be that close to on Thanksgiving Day anyways. :) The picture of the kids at the table is one of our cookie making day. We made gingerbread cookies for the first time ever. today we made chocolate chip cookies (one of my favorites). The other pic is me and mom at my sister Holly's house for our annual cookie night out. Just me, my sisters mom and any of the older nieces and nephews get together and bake ALOT of cookies. this year My sister Lori wansn't there, but my nephew Tyler decided to join us. And Britt and her boyfriend Joe too. we made PB blossoms, chocochip and I brought 2 different sugar cookie doughs and last but not least oatmeal and oatmeal rasin cookies. Then we split them up to take them home.
We had a Halloween party at home instead of trick or treating, the kids had a blast! They want to do it again next year. Micah and Matt. Ethan had to have a pair of goggles like the other kids for our science projects. PAVCS had a field trip to the pumpkin farm.

ZOO: A group photo of all of us that went to the Zoo, my kids and me, Mom and dad and my sister Lori's family. And Maddi got her face painted with a butterfly. and another photo of Grandpa and the kids feeding the goats.
MICAH SCHOOL WORK: Micah's wants to be a fireman a chef and a weather man when he grows up....so the science lessons we are currently doing on weather are fun and easy for him. If you ask him something about the weather watch out he is like an encyclopedia......:)
BIKE RIDING: Before 4pm traffic on the road is pretty slow so as long as I can get one other adult out with me I dont mind taking them all bike riding. 2 kids to go before training wheels are another milestone marked off the list of motherhood :()
We went to the zoo with Frito Lays grandpa works there, Ethan hitched a ride on cousin Stevie's shoulders. Ethan's 4th birthday breakfast OJ fruit and toast his favorite and his new bike. And Grandpa's birthday party (and some of his goofy grandsons) just wanted to let ya know what we've been up to........besides school work! Hopefully things will get easier with schooling quickly cuz I am just about burnt out.

The final days fo summer are always busy....we went to the parade in town Bailey and Micah rode on the float for Aunt Ruth's church. Soccer is in full swing and man has it been HOT! Then there is our local fair that we go to every year and the kids never tire of it. They love everything the rides, animal, shops and of course the fish game. We brought home 3 goldfish this year and they are still alive (rare for fair fish) Daddy gave them money to go down the local pet shop and get more fish now we have 8 total and they bought a bunch of stuff for the tank I should get a picture of the kids with the tank in the morning to post. They are really enjoying it.

Micah and I were so excited! Micah entered his painted dinosaur and a photo he took of our cousin Reed, his photo took 1st place and the dino took 2nd at the local fair! He squealed with excitment when he saw his first ribbon. It was cute.
I entered a photo of Maddi (and she says she won the first place ribbon too cuz it is a picture of her) 3 scrapbook pages (all won 2nd place in thier catagories, all shown closer in posts below) and 2 scrapbook albums (both won first place) One was the heritage album of my mother I will take pictures of it when I get it back from the fair and the other album is the one of this summer. I already have some pictures of on my blog here. It was fun to enter these and next year all the kids want to enter things in the fair too.
