This was Ash and Mekie's Thanksgiving program at school. This was Mekie's class.

Ash's Class

I love Ms. Mekie's smile and her custom Hair bows that I love making for her!!!
The kids take a field trip to the grocery store before the play and put together vegetable soup and make pumpkin muffins. So after they sing we headed to the gym for soup and muffins (at 9:30 in the morning, yum, yum!!)

This was Thanksgiving morning. My grandparents came out, my dad and his wife and my brother. This is my grandma and I finishing up the cooking. We had all the traditional foods and the kid's had a blast playing with Uncle Tyler and their grandparents! My mom then came later that day and we spent the night in the dark! Our power went out around 7:30 and didn't come back on until the middle of the night. Then my mom and I woke up at and headed out of the house at 3am for Black Friday shopping. My favorite!!! We had a great time and filled the car with our bargins!

Halloween Night

I'm a little behind on posting. We were so busy with our fundraiser and I've been having lots of jewelry shows that I haven't been able to keep up. But had a few minutes today and I even got a shower! Which you know, getting a shower is a big deal when you have 4 kiddos running around! So this was halloween night. We had to take our traditional picture in front of our house with the kid's pumpkins.

Ethan was so excited to get candy that he fell asleep!

We went over to a friend's addition and went trick or treating with them. It was so much fun. Ash was sticking close by me when we first got there. He wasn't quite sure who everybody was because they were dressed up. Mekie was half asleep and not sure of herself either. But Garrett took the lead and showed just what to do.

Mekie was excited about the candy.
Ash couldn't believe he got to keep going to more houses to get more candy.

We had such a great time for Ash and Mekie's first Halloween. Ethan was too cute that night. He had his big pumpkin filled up with candy and he was dragging it because it was too heavy. He was acting like it was a chore to walk up to the house and get candy! Got to love the baby!He was so tired by the end. Garrett and Ash, by the end, were far ahead of us. We had to get after them to stay with us. Mekie was kind of like Ethan at the end. She wanted to be carried! Then we went back to our friend's house for coffee and snacks. And then headed to our church's trunk or treat for an hour. The kids finally crashed in the car on the way home!

This picture is of Mekie sleeping in Ethan's bed. I found them snuggling in bed together. It was so cute, I couldn't resist taking a pic. So Ethan has been coming down lately telling me "I sleep in Mekie bed" or "Mekie sleep in Ethan's bed".
