Thanksgiving 2009

The Pilgrims who came to our Thanksgiving (aka Chloe, Grant,& Tate)

Roasting marshmallows around the fire pit

We had a great thanksgiving in Weatherford this year. We went up on Wednesday and came back Saturday. We enjoyed seeing alot of our family and the kids loved playing at Mimi and Dado's house. Creative aunt Carol made pilgrim costumes for Tate, Grant, and Chloe and even paper mached a turkey and pie for her her pilgrim pageant that was held after we ate. David enjoyed going to my dad's ranch to hunt and finally shot a doe! He was thankful for that..... On Thursday night we went over to David's sister, Emily's house to see Ella, Matt, Nana, and Babbo. On Friday we hung around the house and that evening we made smores on my parent's fire pit and sang songs around the campfire, it was truly a Norman Rockwell picture. We are home and ready to start preparing for Christmas!

Halloween 2009

Nascar Tate
Brooklyn and Grant

waiting patiently

Did you know Jeff Gordon is friends with Colt McCoy?

Look who we found! Tate's teacher, Mrs. Haschke, lives in the neighborhood.

Halloween was great this year! Tate dressed up as a race car driver and Grant was a builder (however if you asked him he really wanted to be a monster!) Our friends, the Reaves, came over and went with us. Most of the neighbors were out either in their culdesacs or their front yard so it was easy for the kids. Tate and Barrett ran ahead of us to get as much candy as they could and Brooklyn and Grant walked with the parents and enjoyed seeing all of the spooky halloween decorations. It was a fun night and I think the kids really enjoyed it!
