We're Thankful for Turkeys like Easton and Luke

We had our "Being Thankful" family home evening with the boys tonight. Lindsey told us a story about the importance of being thankful for the blessings we have. She tied-in the story of the 10 Lepers that the Savior healed and only one returned to say 'thank you.' For our activity we helped the boys make this awesome Winco Foods turkey, they had a blast!!! We stuffed the turkey with pages from an old phone book. The boys thought it was pretty awesome to tear and crumple page after page. They both helped color the turkey's head and feathers. I think they are ready for Thanksgiving!

The picture with the water is our version of "A River Runs Through It." The ditch in our backyard goes from empty to four feet deep over night when it rains. We thought it was a very telling picture of just how wet the Great Northwest can be.

"Lucas, say Mommy."

I think this kid very well may be the funniest picture and on camera baby ever!!

Happy Halloween!!

Halloween was such a blast with the boys this year!! Tuesday night, Oct. 30, was our Ward Halloween Party. Easton wasn't so much into the games inside with 300 kids running around all crazy-like, but he was all about the trunk or treat part out in the parking lot. He caught on pretty quickly that you get candy for saying trick-or-treat. Now we are a few days after Halloween, and he is still asking for his candy by saying 'Trick or Treat.' Luke has a good time regardless of what we are doing, as long as he is free to roam. He likes the chaos and does all he can to jump into the middle of all of it. Halloween Night was less exciting. We took the boys around our complex, and then to some members in the ward.
