Fall full of THANKSGIVING!

Jonathan and I were able to go to the UGA vs Auburn Football game thanks to tickets from Dr. Swanson, and my mom keeping the boys!! The boys had fun with her and we enjoyed a "date" with Jacob!
The boys and I went down to my parents for a weekend and decided to take a "trip" to the farm! It was probably the coldest day yet of the year - but they enjoyed seeing the cows and Benjamin went on a tractor and 4-wheeler ride - Micah is still a little hesitant!
Here's a picture of Jacob and Poppy!
Here are the boys in front of a HUGE roll of hay!
This is Jacob on his 7 month BIRTHDAY!
AND... Happy Thanksgiving!
This was Benjamin's school Thanksgiving Feast! Lots of treats!
Micah and Benjamin at the Feast!
...and a quick picture of Jonathan and I on Thanksgiving Day at the Owens's for dinner!
The day after Thanksgiving we headed to the cabin... my boys FAVORITE part of the weekend was probably Uncle Scott making a RAFT out of a rope, sticks, and leaves that really did float down the creek behind the cabin! Wish I had an up-close picture of it!
They LOVE Uncle Scott!
We did roast a few marshmallows...
...and really enjoyed spending time with family!
We also took a "field trip" to the feed store! It really is more like a "pet shop" and the boys LOVE all of the animals. Here's Micah checking out the chicks!
We had a FUN November and we are so GRATEFUL for the many blessings of family, health, a home, job, the Gospel and countless other blessings with which the Lord blesses us!

A Few Fall Favorites!

We just had a 110% fun fall... filled with lots of family outings, field trips and fun dates! This was probably my FAVORITE ...
a date with Jonathan to the CORN MAZE!
One playgroup field trip that we went on (twice actually!) was to the Atlanta Temple. The kids were great and we were even able to walk around the Temple grounds one of the two times with them! What an amazing experience with amazing women and our little ones!
Micah loves Jacob and is so sweet to him!
This was on my 30th birthday - what a WONDERFUL gift -this little guy's smiles!
Jonathan actually got me a COOKIE cake and this Carrot cake!
We had LOTS of cake to eat!
We went to dinner at Maggiano's - the boys were a bit of a handful but it was nice to eat out!
This is a sweet picture - Micah giving Benjamin "5" after he had completed all of his laps for the Boosterthon at school!
This is Micah's little preschool class at Mt. Zion - Farmer Day and a wagon ride!
Micah excited to go on the wagon ride!
Benjamin's class went on a field trip to Cagle's Dairy and I got to meet him there!
He LOVED petting the animals ... the calves were so sweet!
This is Benjamin with his friend, Christina, on the wagon ride! She is a sweet girl with GREAT parents ...
love when Benjamin is friends with GOOD children!
This is another of Benjamin's Friends at his Fall Party - Elaina Dustin, who is actually in his class at church as well! It has been such a blessing this year!
Last but not least... one of my favorite pictures of this ADORABLE little guy on his SIX month birthday! We LOVE him so much!

A spook-tacular Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We had lots of fun Halloween happenings ...
one included a Family Home Evening of Pumpkin Carving with friends!
This was our family picture with our pumpkin... the best we could get!
Here are the boys the night of carving pumpkins...
Benjamin also had a CTR class Halloween party and invited one friend from school:
Benjamin, Elaina, Christina, Noah and Chase - fun little party with a
pinata full of candy!
Here are the boys at the Trunk-or-Treat!
The night of Halloween, I got a little Halloween card for the kids and put
it with their costumes for a fun night of TRICK-OR-TREATING!
Here's the kiddos at the Moran's!
ONE of my favorites ... Micah finally plopped down and was determined to eat
SOME of the candy he'd been carrying around all night!
This was after all was said and done ... the kids walked the WHOLE time - what a fun night!
So for 2011 ... Benjamin was Scooby-Do, Micah was an awesome dragon (tail, wings, and all!)
and Jacob wore the Beaver costume!!
