Christmas activites

We tried to stay busy and do fun things before and after the normal Christmas Eve/Day festivities. We went to Bass Pro Shop and saw Santa Claus and had a fun evening hanging out there looking around and playing. We went to a cookies and milk party at church that was super fun for the kiddos. We also took the kids to the Broadmoor Hotel to see all the lights and the gingerbread train. We always go by ourselves on a date night but wanted to take the kids this year. They loved it. After Christmas we made a date with the "big" kids and took them to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We all LOVED it. Well, at least us Harry Potter fans did!! We had a great time together.

Thanksgiving 2016

Not too many pictures of Thanksgiving, but it was a good day. Grammy and Papa came over and brought a few side dishes with them to share, oh and pies...they brought pies. We all had a nice, relaxing day and enjoyed good food.

Henry was ready to eat!

Trick or treating & Pumpkin Carving

We ended up having some sick little ones this past Halloween so we had to for-go our plans we had made with friends and just went to Grammy and Papa's house to trick or treat. There was hardly anyone out trick or treating, so the kids got a pretty good haul from the people who were passing out candy. They all had a lot of fun. We also had fun carving pumpkins, thankfully no one needed stitches this year. I made sure to make my husband use the "safe" carving kit this time. Over all we had a great fall season with all of the festivities we went to.

Henry decided to be Yoda on Halloween instead of Batman.

The little ladybug had not trick or treated before so it was fun to see how much fun she had.

Treat Street 2016

Every year the school where my husband works has a carnival around Halloween time for younger kids in the community. Our kids always enjoy going and have lots of fun. They have hallways full of high school students passing out candy to trick or treaters and also have an area full of games the kids can play.

The toddler didnt want to take pictures this day, she was there just not in the pictures.

Henry loved fishing.

Even big boys like playing the games!
