Happy Thanksgiving

I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I have a loving husband, parents, a grandmother that is out of this world. Great kids and grandkids and two great siblings. I have the most talented blog angel you could ask for. I have a huge extended family and friends. With all that to be thankful for, I'm most thankful for an awesome GOD that makes all this possible.

This is my angels Christmas picture. It was such a fun, happy session with them this year. They where laughing and playing with each other. I didn't have to do a thing, they listened to Jessica and did everything she asked of them. Maybe the fact that Santa is coming soon had something to do with it but I would like to think not. :o)

Getting ready for Santa

We are starting to get into the Christmas spirit around here. I got some things out last night at the kids request. I usually don't start this early but I'm a sucker when my kids say pleeeeese mommy. I still have a lot more things to get out but I'm definitely on my way. We even woke up to a dusting of snow this morning. Adalyn is so excited about Christmas this year. She keeps asking if its Christmas yet?
The first picture I took earlier this week. I couldnt resist, I went to wake him up for school and this is how I found him. He told me when he got up he thought he saw a flash of light in his sleep. :o)

Saturday was a busy day for us. Leslie and I went to Trims and Whims. Its kinda like a craft show all about Christmas. We where kid free. I dont think I've ever been without kids. I have to say, I kinda missed them. We met up with my sister and mom and had lunch in their tea room. The food is always so yummy. Teachers work it so it was nice to see some of Daltons teachers from years ago. We got a few Christmas presents and got into the Christmas spirit. I think I just might get the tree out.
Brrrr, it was cold. That night we headed to our lighting up out town. They close down the streets and people gather to watch our little town turn into a city of lights. The kids alway have a great time. They sale hot cocoa, popcorn, all those things that light up for the kids and the shops along main street are open.

Its a nice time to see people that you haven't seen in a while. We meet up with friends to watch the lighting and then headed back to our house for dinner and chatting. The kids played and we got to solve the worlds problems, what could be better?
Sunday has been a lazy day for us. I cant remember the last time we have just been plain lazy, and man did it feel good. We watched The Polar Express and took naps, great day. We are headed out to catch a movie tonight, Madagascar. I figured we might as well do something, we wont be able to go to bed until midnight. I hope everyone has a great week.

Trick or Treating

We hope everyone enjoyed the Halloween season. The kids had a great time this year. Adalyn is old enough now to really enjoy the whole trick or treating thing. Dalton dressed up but just to hand out candy and help his little sister, such a great big brother. We went to our church this year for trunk or treat and had a blast. So many cute vehicles all dressed up for the kids. They had chili, hot dogs and a samore making station.

After the candy gathering was over we went out to eat with another family from church. Cynthia has recently started a blog and are waiting to hear any day for news to travel back to China for their second daughter.

We had Halloween pictures taken one week and Christmas the next, crazy isn't it? The holidays are upon us. This weekend we celebrate Light up our little town. The kids are excited and know Santa is coming soon.
