We went to the circus last Sunday afternoon. It was the first time for Grant and Micah. Micah loved the dog act they had and Grant loved the clowns. I wasn't able to take a lot of pics due to it being dark. We really impressed how well Micah did since we were a little worried he would be fussy since it was during his nap time, but he stayed awake the whole time. He crashed when we got home. Oh, if you haven't been to the circus in awhile bring lots of money. Cotton candy was $10, snowcones $9,
elephants $15.

Thanksgiving Feast

Broadmoor Serve

A couple of weeks ago our church had a serve night instead of Sunday night service. Our small group decided to hand out water bottles at two different parks to get our kids involved. We had a great time passing out water and tell them Jesus loves them. We didn't have an opportunity to share the gospel, but we hope we planted some seeds.

Chili Cookoff

Last Friday night, our Sunday school class had a chili cookoff party out at my in-laws. Richie and Chris had the winning chili and they made a big announcement that they are expecting which we have been praying for for quite awhile. Dan's chili came in 2nd to last out of 9 different chilies. I guess his chili didn't have much kick to it. The party was lots of fun and there were kids everywhere! All the kids in our class are under the age of 5 and they were about 15 kids running around.
Dan and I enjoy teaching our class so much. It is amazing to see how God is and has worked in our class during the last two years. This past Sunday we had to take down the tables and use chairs only. We are offically out of space in our room and there is no where to move. The people in our class have such a love for God and have a desire to grow closer and be in the word. I'm excited to see how and what God has in store for our class in the future.Plus it's bonus when everyone in there has children the same or near your kids ages.

Fun with a Box

I had a Southern Living at Home party a few weeks ago and the order came in last week. The items came in 5 huge, heavy duty boxes. G of course wanted to keep some to play with so we let him have 2 boxes. The boys have had hours of fun with the box, but I have already told him they are going in the trash on Monday since they are falling apart.

First Trip to the Dentist

G was out of school for the election. I'm not posting a blog about that because I don't want to get into politics. Anyways, he got to go to the dentist for the first time. We were in and out within 20 mins. He was so good and could not have asked for him to be more perfect. I was little worried since he has a bad gag reflex, he never gagged. The dentist said his teeth were perfect and we don't even need to floss since there is so much room between his teeth. She said he might never have to have braces since there is so much room for his other teeth to come in later!! The best part about the visit for G was the fact they had to TV's on the ceiling for the kids to watch movies. That day they were playing Ratatouille. We'll go back in May!

Grant's first hunting trip

Last Saturday, we went out to my in-laws, so that Dan could take G squirrel hunting. G did pretty well. He lasted about 30 min. before he was ready to head back to the house. So pawpaw brought him back and Dan stayed out in the woods to hunt a little longer. He came back with one squirrel. Micah and I stayed at the house, played and visited with family. I'm sure this is the first of many hunting pics and stories!

A date with Grant

Grant and I had a date last week. I picked him up early from preschool and we went bowling. Dan swung by for a few minutes to say hi and bowl little before heading back to work. Then Grant ran some errands with me before we picked Micah up from MDO. He was so excited to spend a few hours just with me without having to share me. I believe I'll try to make it a monthly date.

Halloween 2008

This year Grant dressed as the UPS man and was eo excited every time he saw the UPS truck. He would yell out, "Hey, that's what I'm going to be." Micah was a monkey since we call him the chunky monkey. He was really good about keeping his costume on, but he did he get a little hot in it. We went to church for the fall fest and then out to the P's to go trick or treating.

Carving Party

Back on Oct. 25th, we went over to the Soto's, they are new to our Sunday School class, for a carving party. We had lots of fun and can't wait until next year.
