Blessing Day!

We blessed Tason in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving weekend, at Grammy's house.  It was really special having all of Greg's brothers and Granddad in the circle.  And Grammy used her amazing short-hand skills to record the blessing, just like she did for the girls.  We also got a four generation picture, since Grandma Farmer was there.  It was a beautiful blessing.  I am soo thankful for my wonderful husband who is worthy to give our children such a wonderful blessing from their Heavenly Father.

Turkey Trot 2009

Greg and Avalyn's school set up their first annual Turkey Trot. Shallon, Tason and I came to participate also. (Briley was at her preschool Thanksgiving Party.) We had a nice little 1 mile walk around a nearby neighborhood. And the principal, Mrs. Lepisto, even dressed up in a turkey costume! She is such a good sport!  And Greg dressed down for the occasion!  I love my sweet, silly husband!!!!  :)

Student of the month...

Guess who received student of the month for November??? Avalyn!!!
Avalyn is having a really good year so far! We are sooo proud of her!  :)

Backwards Day

It was Backwards Day at school today for Greg and Avalyn.  I love that they go to school together!  I love that Greg likes to participate on these fun school days!  He's like a big kid, trying to pick out his outfit the night before, the outfit that will be the silliest backwards!  Then he's helping Avalyn pick out her outfit, it gets her excited to dress up, too!

the kids

I saw this cute pose on Kristi's blog.  The kids weren't being very cooperative, but I tried anyways.  I think that it turned out pretty cute!

Ok, I'm getting dangerously close to the big 3-0. Let's not talk about it and pretend that it's not happening. Thanks for your cooperation.

ps. I did have a good b-day though.  Greg bought me 2 tall bookselves for the living room and a gift certificate for a mani-pedi!  :)

Dr. Turner

Tason was totally passed out during our 6 week check up with Dr. Turner.  It was sooo cute!  Look at those cubby cheeks!  :)  Before we left, I remembered to get a picture of Tason with Dr. Turner.  I wish that I would have remembered with Briley and Shallon, the curse of the middle chilren!

Sleeping Cutie

When I saw Tason sleeping like this, I had to get a picture of him.  Because it totally reminded me of this picture of Briley sleeping!  If it wasn't for all that blue and pink, it would be pretty hard to tell who was who!  I love sleeping babies and chubby cheeks!!!

So, soccer season is over.  Avalyn had a lot of fun getting to know some new friends (Jasmine, Abby, Taylor and Brenna) and learning how to play soccer.  She really showed us that she is quite competitive and that she definitely has some athletic ability (which she clearly gets from her dad).  To end the year, Avalyn had her very first awards banquet tonight.  In addition to a participation trophy, Avalyn's team also received the Sportsmanship award!  We are so proud of our little soccer star.  Thanks Coach Lisa for a great season!  Avalyn can't wait until next year!

baby boy clothes...

Who ever said that boy clothes aren't cute, hasn't seen Tason's wardrobe!!!  This is my favorite outfit so far...

Unfortunately this is his last time wearing it, it's a newborn size.  Right now, Tason is teetering between the 0-3 month clothes and the 3-6 month clothes.  Thanks mom, for this super cute outfit!  And a huge thanks to Amie, Crystal and Angela for the multiple, humongous bags of really, really cute boy clothes!!!
