We had a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin spending time with all sides of the family.

Noah's Thankful Celebration

A few days before Thanksgiving, Noah's preschool put on an adorable program all about the kids. Each class stood up on stage, sang a little song or prayer, then were able to each take the microphone and tell what they were thankful for. Noah was SO CUTE! When it was his turn, he walked over to his teacher took the microphone and said "My name is Noah and I'm thankful for my Mommy." Mommy was in tears, and so proud!

A few more catch up pictures!

Last weekend, we took a trip to visit our good friends the Turners in Long Beach. We had limited time on the beach, as the weather was not so great. The wind was so strong, Olivia could hardly walk!

Tiffany let the kids take a bath in the 'big tub' and put bubbles in with the jets...a huge hit!
Wednesdays we get to play with our friend Avery, amazing I got a pic of all 3!

A few pumpkin carving pictures that I forgot to add from the last entry.

Two blog entries in one day!!

It's Been Awhile.. a long while!

Halloween day it poured down rain. I wanted to wait for a day that Dave could come with us for a family trip to the Pumpkin Patch... I decided Halloween day would be the best option. I really wanted pumpkin patch pictures and wanted the kids to pick out a pumpkin to carve, so we braved the treacherous weather and headed out into the mud! It actually turned out great and we had a good time.

Olivia had a brief moment of sadness in the rain...

Olivia wants to wear hats and hoods all the time, inside, outside, rain or shine. The one day when it actually rained and I wanted her to wear her hood, did she???? NO, of course not!

My Dad's work Wights puts on a Halloween party every year. The party has a costume contest, Noah won 3rd for the 3 year olds.. he is very proud! Noah was a skunk for Halloween, and Olivia was a chicken.. they were perfect costumes for this year.. my little stinker and little chick!

Noah is giving Makena his "stink" with his skunk tail!

Olivia the little chick!

One of my favorite parts of Noah's costume

The only picture I got of the two kids together, a little blurry, but it's a picture!

Noah's preschool class took a trip to the pumpkin patch, it was cold, but a lot of fun.

And here is Noah on his first day of preschool (2 1/2 months late!) He is really loving preschool and meeting a lot of friends and learning more and more each day.

Thanks for looking! I will try and be better about posting more often!

Sara, I know you tagged me, and I will post it next time :)

Summer Fun

More swimming pictures at Grandma and Grandpa's pool. We sure will miss it once summer ends, and always look forward to the next summer for more pool fun!

Olivia's 1st Mariners Game. She had a much better time flipping up and down the seats, and climbing on and off of them!


Since this weekend officially marked the last of summer, I figured I should post a few pictures of the last few weeks. Noah starts preschool tomorrow, which I have mixed emotions about. We had a fantastic summer and enjoyed many weekends at the cabin, Grandpa and Grandma's pool and many other fun activities!

Professional Pictures

We had professional pictures taken in July, and have finally got them back and posted! It was quite the experience. Olivia really did not want to have her picture taken that day and decided it would be best to be herself! Although the pictures were not all I had hoped they would be, they did capture where our family is at with a 3 year old and 1 year old! The photographer did an amazing job at capturing the kids true selves!
