Thanksgiving with the Romeos

Here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving dinner with the Romeos on Saturday.  Uncle Andrew and Aunt Jennie came done for a visit and the kids loved seeing them.  Of course for the kids playing with Jack, Tori and Chase trumps it all!

Thanksgiving in AZ 2012

We made our 3rd annual trip out to AZ to visit wonderful friends.  This year we stayed with Ryan, Shawna, Maddie and Trevor for 3 nights and then with Amber, Donny, Erin, Emily, and baby boy for 2 nights.  The kids had a blast and enjoyed the time with their friends.  We even got to go to Erin and Emily's 2nd birthday party and visited with our AZ cousins as well.  Unfortunately I did not get photos of those two events :(.  Our trip always goes by way to fast and we are definitely looking forward to next year!

Zach's Class Thanksgiving Party

This year I was able to go to Zach's class for his Thanksgiving party.  The kids did a great job with their Thanksgiving poems and enjoyed eating pumpkin pie.

Halloween Fun!

This year Luke and Jilly were invited to a Halloween party at their friend Nicole's house.  They decorated cookies, played Halloween bingo, bobbed for apples, got tattoos, and played around.  It was a great time and they loved seeing old friends too!
Decorating cookies 

Eating the finished product, yum yum! 

Jilly with her good friends Maddie and Ally.  They watched the bobbing for apples but never wanted to do it. 

 Luke did, though, and here he is eating his apple!

The weekend before Halloween we had Jack, Tori and Chase some to our house for a sleep over.  We started the night by going to the Birch Aquarium for a Halloween extravaganza.  They always do such a nice job of making it fun for the kids and they always have a great band playing too!

Our pumpkins this year.  Zach wanted a spider, Luke wanted squares, and Jilly wanted hearts.  Not too bad right??!

And finally, Halloween night!  Trick or Treat!!

Pumpkin Patch with L&J's Preschool Class

This year, Luke and Jilly got to go to the pumpkin patch with their friends.  They had such a great time and I felt fortunate enough to go.  The day started with a little talk about pumpkins by a witch of a lady (I am not kidding), then the little petting zoo, hay ride, corn maze and finally picking out a pumpkin.  As you can see we all had a ton of fun!
