Thanksgiving 09

We had an awesome Thanksgiving celebrated with good friends! I cooked the massive turkey and mashed potatoes and everyone else brought something else..Bruce even tried sweet potato casserole...and liked it! The Strobles and the Stilwells and all their kids joined us for a fun day of eating, swimming, games and football!

Trick or Treat!

Halloween was kind of different this year...Jonah went trick or treating with a friend so we didn't even see him on Halloween; neither Jonah nor Evan wanted to carve a pumpkin so Isabella and her friend, Katie carved them. Our street was unusually quiet this year too, maybe because there are so many empty houses compared to last Halloween. I think the kids still had fun trick or treating with Dakota and Hunter though!

Isabella carved an awesome bat pumpkin!

Gracie made a very cute witch!

Cooper was a scary spider!

Dakota, Isabella, Hunter and Evan
Cutest.Cat. Ever!
