Thanksgiving, Texas style

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Grandma Lunn's house. The kids all ate at the table with Grandma and Grandpa Lunn, that was a nice break for the moms and dads. We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, fruit, corn, green bean casserole, cranberry salad, rolls, and I am sure I am missing something....but needless to say, we had plenty to eat. My two kids, didn't like the turkey....they prefer ham.
Chloe and her Grandpa play on the floor. Chloe loves her Grandpa Lunn.

It isn't Texas if the weather is exactly the opposite of what it should be. You know, Thanksgiving should be cold and make you pull out your favorite sweaters...well, not in Texas. This year, thankfully, it was a beautiful day so we were able to get out of the house and go for a walk. We ended up at the park and the kids loved being able to play and run around (which they weren't allowed to do in the house). I had to leave early b/c of a diaper issue, but the kids had fun.

Finally after almost 8 months, I got a picture of Keira with Grandpa and Grandma Lunn...don't they look great???
All tired out after an exhausting day of being held and loved on....
Happy Thanksgiving...enjoy the holidays this year!

Caleb had a Thanksgiving feast that we were able to go to. He dressed up as an Indian who was named "Climb the Mountain" (he gave himself that name).

We had a play group with some of Caleb's friends on Monday and decorated gingerbread cookies. Everyone ate their cookie (Chloe only licked the frosting and candy off) except for Caleb

Proud of his cookie

Decorating the tree in the kitchen was loads of fun. Here, Chloe adds yet another red bulb to the same branch....they had fun.


The finished product!


Caleb go to put the star on top of the tree. He thought that was pretty cool.

Keira is crawling

videoMy baby is getting so big. She finally figured out that she can move much easier by using her hands. Now the fun really begins....shutting doors, keeping all small objects out of reach, etc...Enjoy the video.

What a weekend...

This weekend we went to some dear friends' lake house. We had so much fun. The kids were able to play outside in the leaves (lots of them), practice fishing (which they loved - Grandpa Lunn would be proud of the way they can cast their lines), and just playing with Halie. The weekened was really relaxing and cool. We enjoyed a nice warm campfire and lots of hot coffee. Josh and Paul played Bocci ball and Sarah and I scrapbooked. It was so nice to get away from the busy weekends and enjoy just hanging out and spending time with friends.
This is Halie - she is three and the kids play so well all together. We hardly had to entertain them :)

Soccer Party

Caleb's soccer team came over to our house for and ice cream party after their last game. It was hot, but they had fun and the ice cream was yummy. Keegan is missing, but the rest of the kids were able to come (Caden, CJ, Reese, Caleb, and Ben). They all were so excited to get their trophys......
Caleb sporting his trophy. Love that smile!!

Halloween

Happy Halloween! The kids had a blast this year. We went to the church for their festival and I think they could have stayed all night. They had these huge slides and jump houses that the kids loved, and they also had games indoors that they enjoyed as well. Keira just came along for the ride and she hardly made a peep. She was great. Chloe had a wide variety of costume choices (tinkerbell, carebear, supergirl, skunk, and peter pan). I think she made a good choice, green is definitely her color. Caleb, as you can well imagine, enjoyed being spiderman and seeing all the other villians and super heroes out trick or treating. After we went to the church, we went to Grandma Lunn's neighborhood and did some trick or treating. All in all, we ended up with lots of candy - go figure. The candy fairy is coming to trade most of the candy for a special prize. We hope you had a great halloween as well!
