We are Thankful!

Thanksgiving this year was spent in Buckeye. We had quite a crowd with all 3 of my brothers and my Grandparents. It was a typical Thanksgiving, lots of great food, football, and family. My Mom did an amazing job this year with the table. Around the napkins she put two paper leaves and after we ate dinner we wrote what we were thankful for and we put it on her "Thankful Tree". She made a scrapbook and each year she will put the leaves into the scrapbook.. she's pretty awesome that Mom. 

Sorry for my lack of pictures of Thanksgiving, I think I was too busy just hanging out to take pictures :) These two were actually stole from my brothers wife Meghan, Thanks!

The day after Thanksgiving we got a babysitter for all 6 of the little kiddos and we all went to the ASU game. We lost, but it was fun to go and hang out with the group. 
 Here is half of the group, on the other side of Dad was Mom, Chris, and Kati
That Saturday, Kati and I decided we didn't want to sit around all day- so we made plans to go to the Wildlife World Zoo. If you ever want to go, I suggest buying a carton (or 2 or 3) of Hickmans Eggs and using the BOGO Free Wildlife World Zoo tickets! The zoo can be a little expensive, but since we had enough of these it was a little more affordable, and there is no expiration date so look out on your eggs and clip out those coupons! 

As you can tell London was VERY excited to go to the Zoo!

 A lion cub, his poor paws were bigger then his head!

They're adorable aren't they?
 The best picture I have of the motley crew, Mom and Dad, Chris, Kati, Wesly, Travis, Nathan, Brelee, Me, Kyle, Macy, and London.
 I don't think I've ever been to a Zoo where the littlest one hasn't fallen asleep, which means it was an awesome adventure!

Big Girl Beds!

I got a call from my Mom asking if I would like a set of bunk beds, they were in good condition and she had a friend that was giving them away. Of course! I'm always up for free things, if it's not "my style" I can change it up a little to make it my style. The beds were a light wood color, and they were about 15 years old, so they have their fair share of dings and scratches. They didn't really match Macy's room, so I decided to paint them white! If only I had taken a before picture, but ta-da!

I love them :) The top bunk is about to my chin, which really isn't tall at all. When we move London into Macy's room we need to build a ladder, but that won't be hard since the bed looks like 2x4's. Yay for "free" bunk beds! (After primer, paint, and seal stuff it probably cost me about $70, still way cheaper then a "shabby chic" bunk bed from the store!).

"I'm just changing her diaper Mom!"

When your 13 month old walks up to you like this....

 You automatically say to your toddler "Umm... What happened?!" Macy's response? "I was just changing her diaper, mom!" "Whose diaper?" 

"The bear..." Oh.. of course.

Victim #1...

Happy Halloween!

Like every other parent out there, about the beginning of October I started asking Macy what she wanted to be for Halloween. The answer? Christmas! Hmm.... okay. We talked about it A LOT. We looked at pictures of cute butterflies, flowers, and princess costumes, but it was always the same answer "Mom, I told you. I want to be The Christmas." I tried figuring out exactly what "The Christmas" was and it turned out that was Santa Claus. Okay, I can do that. Then, it turned into the Christmas Tree. That's a hard costume people! So this is what we came up with...
 Most people guessed she was some kind of fairy, but I won't hold it against them because it's not often a little girl wants to be a Christmas Tree for Halloween :)  And here's another one of our little smurf...
 We started out just going to a few houses, started off at the Larson's then onto the Millers and Grandmas, but Macy quickly learned that the more houses we went to the more candy she got. We went up on "the hill" and made the rounds up there, and now we have a huge bucket full of candy.. yum!
