Bring on the Turkey

So I just wanted to write a quick blog post. We have so much to be grateful for this year. We are spending time at my Dad's house for Thanksgiving in Las Vegas, and it has been fun seeing how happy he is around my boys. He loves to do little projects with them.. They've tilled the garden, played basketball and lot's of hugs and kisses.We won't mention that Camden knocked out the headlights in one of my dads old cars out back... ( seriously Camden???)
It has been great to see family and friends and share traditions, and pictures of our Kyndal. We went to my cousin Chad and Rebecca's house last night for an early Turkey Day dinner. It was great. A few weeks ago, I was laying in bed and remembered that Blades had always wanted the kids' profile's done in black and white. Rebecca paints, and I sent her some pictures. I picked up the paintings last night and they are adorable. It was supposed to be a suprise for Christmas for Blades, but I couldnt wait. Im such a BAD secret keeper... I can't wait to get home and rearrange some items to find the perfect place for them. She did Kyndal's with a big flower in the picture on her head. It's perfect! I will post pictures later..
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!

7 years and many more to come

We celebrate our anniversary today. 7 years seems like so long ago, but when I look at these pictures it seems like yesterday. Blades is an amazing husband, friend and father. Here are a few pictures from our special day all those years ago. We are going to a resort tomorrow night thanks to a cousin who is coming to watch the boys overnight. We have grown so much over the last 7 years.. and will grow so much in the next 7... ( and hopefully more).. I love you Blades!!!

Pumpkin Carvin'

We waited til about 2 hours before Halloween night to do pumpkins. Dad did them with the boys.. I took the pictures. The roasted seeds were oh so delicious!!!

Camden didnt like the feel of the pumpkin guts.. can you tell by his face??? ha ha

Cowboys and Indians

When my mom was here, she brought the kids a few toys ( from the dollar store)... and they loved them. They are still playing with them weeks later... These boys are too cute not to share their adventures with you!!
