Happy Thanksgiving

So as usual in our family on Thanksgiving Day, I am at home with the kids cleaning, cooking (not so much I was asked to bring a relish tray -- Costco makes great relish trays) and laundry while Leigh is playing Football. He will come home and not be able to move so I will have to get the kids ready for dinner and anything else that needs to be done--
Isn't Thanksgiving GREAT!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Family. Thanks Kiel for your service I hope wherever you are they are making you a great Thanksgiving dinner. We can't wait to see you in a couple weeks!

Go Orange Go Big Blue

Fight, Fight, BSU
Saturday my Dad gave us his season tickets seats for a hot date. My "sister-in-law" Jenica :) and my brother Luke came with us. At the start of the second quarter we(the girls) went out to get something to eat for the boys and when we came back we decided to have a good time. We were chest-bumping like the guys do and yelling (it was a very boring game). We had a great time, but Leigh and Luke thought we had made a detour for the beer garden. Just having FUN guys!!! Thanks Dad for the great afternoon. I also have to thank Grandma (Jenica's mom) my kids were really calling her that by the end of the night:) for watching Kiera and Dryson. After the game we played games at the Cotterells and lets just say I'm not sure Luke knows what Yoga is! Also watch out for his ability to sculpt almost anything out of clay! Thanks for the Laughs


Craft night will be Thurs Nov 20th. Ck out for all the info. Thanks

Trick or Treat (smell my feet)

Thats right give me something good to eat! Holy cow my kids got loaded up with candy, playdough, pencils, crowns, earings, lipgloss, cars, balls, and did I mention CANDY. I have very spoiled kids but people seem to love them. We have some great friends who have 2 kids(one in college and one in High School). He called us up Friday morning and had to make sure we where coming to his house. He had gotten each of the kids a bucket full of things they would like. He got Kiera a princess dress up thing and as soon as she put everything on she walked passed his fireplace looked into it and said "I AM CUTE". After Grandma Teri's, Grandma and Grandpa Hanks, Papa Durrant, Grandma and Grandpa Patterson's, the Castoe's, and the Kerbs we really didn't need to go anywhere else but we had already told the Francis Family we would go have dinner and trick or treat with them. Kiera had a blast and Dryson loved it (he was just a little to slow for all the older kids) I ended up dropping Dryson off halfway through the neighborhood and then we finished. We had great weather (the best I can remember) and great company.

What a cute GIRAFFE!!

Say cheese Dryson!

Thanks to a great neighbor who had a giraffe and zebra costume, It's a jungle out there!

Trick or Treat!!!
