Happy Thanksgiving!!

We decided at the last minute to head to Oregon for Thanksgiving. We weren't planning on going this year since we just barely got moved into our house in Tucson, but as some of you know Weston's dad suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm in October while he and Sandy were vacationing in Hawaii. He is now a walking miracle and his recovery has been amazing! Needless to say this gave our entire family quite a scare and we all wanted to be together to celebrate all that we have to be thankful for this year! I married into an amazing family and I feel so blessed to have each and every one of them in my life!

We decided to get a big group photo since it had been several years since we had one taken. What a good looking group we are! :)

Our family...don't be surprised if you see this picture again on your Christmas card. I don't have time to have another one taken!

Weston w/ his youngest brother Jon and our newest little nephew Ethan. He and London are 3 months apart and I'm sure will be best buds if their dads have anything to do with it! :)

Cutie pies...Elyse and Vella.

We had 3 tables this size set up in the family room to fit all of us!

Weston's brother Todd and his wife Jodie.

My "big" nieces and nephews...they're all taller than me did that happen?!

Karey and I...hard to believe she was 4 years old when Weston and I started dating!

Since there is no shopping in Klamath Falls...our tradition is to go bowling on Black Friday! Logan and Carson both beat my score...granted they had the bumpers up! After bowling we took the little kids to see "A Christmas Carol" in 3D.

This is the look of a boy who just bowled a strike!

London getting to know his cousins!

The kids love to feed the horses apples!

London w/ my mom...AKA grammy!

On our last day Grandma Sandy was getting out the Christmas decorations and this is Carson trying to "help." I can't wait for him to "help" me w/ mine when we get back home! :)

Halloween Fun

Here's some pictures from our whirlwind Halloween weekend! First up... carving pumpkins! I like doing this outside...easy clean up!

Carson wanted a vampire...hmmm....maybe I've been talking a bit too much about New Moon lately? Logan wanted a ghost.

On Friday night our church had a huge "trunk or treat." Logan was a skeleton and Carson a Star Wars clonetrooper. London is just wearing a cute Halloween outfit...I haven't unpacked the baby costumes yet!

This is Carson before candy...I'll let you use your imagination for the after candy face! ;)

On Halloween night we went to Colossal Cave Mountain Park for their candlelight tour of the cave. They also had a Halloween Howl Carnival w/ haunted hayrides, hay maze, and jumping castle!

They made it to the end of the maze!

This was our spooky guide through the caves. It was really cool...they told us the history of the cave and we only had candlelight to guide us!

A friendly witch we saw.

The boys at the entrance to the cave...spooky!

Our horses that led us on our haunted hayride. Our favorite was the headless horseman! London slept through the whole ride...even the crazy chainsaw guy! The boys did great, they understood it was all fake and they had fun. They did snuggle pretty close to their dad though!
