Let it SNOW!

I have to admit that I have been dreading the snow. It is always my hope that the weather holds out until after Thanksgiving. We usually get a few small storms that sneak their way in and this was the first one. Well, my boys couldn't have been more excited, and that means ALL my boys. Matt and Tytan started as early as possible and Lloyd joined in as soon as he got home. 

At first there wasn't much snow to work with. But apparently it doesn't really matter.

Matt was so excited to make a snow angel.

The snow started coming down more heavily. Then it was down to business! 
And yes. . . Lloyd is in shorts.

Kenna turns 8

So, as a mom there are always mile markers that you know your kids will hit and you don't think it will freak you out. Well, it does. I can't believe that McKenna is already 8. She is such a big girl and as much as I love all the fun things we get to do with her being older, I want my little girl forever too. We had a fun little party with just our little crew Monday night to celebrate. She will be getting baptized on the 28th and so we will have a big family get together after that. We love you Kenna girl. Happy Birthday!!!!!

She got quite a few "girly gifts" from her brothers and a desk from Lloyd and me, but I have to say that the one that made her smile the biggest was the body glitter brush from her Aunt Amy. I guess it doesn't get any better than that!

October Overview

In my defense...we just went through a move (again) and in the process I misplaced the cord to my camera. Thus why October's post's are all going to be put together. At least I wasn't a slacker at taking the pictures though. October was a great month full of tons of activities and family fun!
