One of the many....

A while back Chad ventured to UNchartered territory with the fellas. We had been given four tickets to see Disney on Ice, and Chad took the plunge. It was a night that I had already planned a movie night with the youth girls, so I missed it. But I was so thankful to have a husband that would take my fellas to she Disney. He said all eyes were glued to the rink! I know I don't say it enough as a wife, but this is one of the many reasons I love him so.....and extra kuddos for taking the camera and coming back with pictures! :-)

Just a little excited!

Walden Pumpkin Farm

This past Monday we went to a local pumkin patch to do all that fun. We had a great time and was able to persuade a dear friend, Zack to experience it with our family. So, to those of you far away....we didn't just pick a stranger up to have a family of six. He is part of our "extended" family! New to the farm was the corn maze...definately a thumbs up! We got to feed the goats (the two story contraption), ride the mini tractors, do the hay bale maze, check out the pumpkins, and enjoy some roasted pumpkin seeds! Yum, yum!

I really can't think of a good title for this one video because it is just so random. Today while I was fixing lunch the boys wanted to play a little b-ball, so out the door they went...raising the gargage door all the while....then all of a sudden I hear Owen yell, "Wow, Griffin that's awesome, can I try?" So, curiosity killed this chick and I peeked out the door. Let just say they both spent the next 5 minutes taking turns doing this. I'm thinking what are we in for later with adventures like this at four. What do ya'll think? :-)

Birthday Bash for Two

The line of creativity
Griffin and Gracey cooling off under the "jungle gym"
Tate's not sure what to do with ALL these peeps
Emma, Owen, and Mollie
Austin and Garrett
Yeah, for Griffin!
This past weekend we celebrated Tate and Griffin's birthdays together. We had so much fun. The boys wanted a zoo/safari theme, and so it was. It was great wonderful to have all of our local friends come celebrate with us, as well as Grandma Jo. It is amazing to think these two little guys are 2 and 4! I just love watching them play together and really enjoy one another, talk about making your heart swell up!

I must say I was probally a little insane to have 22 children in our backyard ranging from 15 months to 9, but nobody got hurt(to my knowledge) and everyone got some cake and ice cream. In my mind, that's success. Not to mention the children did such a CUTE job on their "party favor." They all got to make themselves shirts with zoo animals stamped on them. I just loved seeing their little creative minds work as they were deciding where to put each stamp.
