Happy Thanksgiving!!

I love Thanksgiving, it really is one of my favorite holidays. I love having my family all together and remembering all that we have to be thankful for. Oh, and the food is out of this world. My mom can seriously cook! Yesterday was such a good day and it put a smile on my face. I actually spent the majority of the day in the kitchen. Which, I haven't ever really done. My mom had her knee surgery and needed a lot more help this year and I was happy to do it. I loved being with her and having her show me all ropes to cooking the delicious dinner. It made me really want to host my own Thanksgiving(when we get our own place again). My mom is amazing and I am truly thankful that she is my mother. I loved watching the kids play with their cousins and have so much fun. I love that Stephen gets to go out and play football and then comes home and plays with the kids. I loved hearing Kaleb say the prayer and remember (all by himself) to bless Uncle Kyle that his back will get better ( I cried). And again, most of all... I love my family! I am so thankful to have an eternal family, and I look forward to many fabulous Thanksgivings with them.

Blake is so close to crawling!! He starts out trying to crawl and then just decides he can roll faster. It is so cute to watch him roll all over the place. I took this video a couple weeks ago, enjoy:)

This is a little behind schedule since the fair was a few weeks ago, but oh well:) I LOVE the FAIR!!! I always have, it is so fun and the food is the best! It has been so great to take the kids and see them enjoy it as well. Every year we spend the whole day out there. We get there between 10am and 11am, and stay till about 10:30pm when the fireworks are done. The kids ride the rides, we look at exhibits, hold the baby chicks and ducks, eat a ton of delicious food, and lastly watch the AMAZING fireworks(that is my favorite part)! I cannot wait to go next year!!

Soccer Star

Kaleb finished up his soccer season a couple weeks ago, and he did really good. He was funny though, he did not like to practice, he just wanted to play. Stephen was the coach and I don't know if we will do that again unless they have smaller teams. But, overall Kaleb did have fun and he was happy to get a trophy. I was very proud of Kaleb, and I loved watching him play.

Happy Halloween!!

We had such a fun Halloween!! We had 2 kittens, Ben 10, and a pumpkin. Oh, and we were lucky to have Indiana Jones with us as well. Indiana also won best adult costume for our ward:) The kids loved the ward party and trick or treating, double the candy. Now, we just have to eat it all:)
