What am I thankful for...

I asked Emma today what she was thankful for and she said her family and Zoe!

I asked Brooks tonight what he was thankful for and he said God!

Oh how I love my 2 sweet babies! I sure am thankful for them both and Ben and the rest of my family and friends and most importantly God!

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Emma's Fairytale Ball...

They had a fairytale ball at school where they got to dress up as their favorite fairytale person. It was too cute watching them all walk out one by one. Parents were invited and they had refreshments afterwards as well as dancing where we got to join in. It was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures from the ball.

All Aboard…It’s Brooks’ 3rd Birthday

Saturday morning we celebrated Brooks’ 3rd birthday. He decided he wanted a Thomas the Train birthday party and was SO EXCITED about it. Here are some pictures from the party.




He is loving all his new presents and has been playing with them all weekend. We are so blessed with such sweet family and friends that came to join us in celebrating our little man!

Happy 3rd Birthday Brooks

I can not believe today is your 3rd birthday. I look back at the last 3 years and can't imagine where the time has gone or what we did before you were born. You bring so much joy to our lives. You are SO loving and SO laid back. You say things that amaze me everyday and you have been talking so well for so long I sometimes forget before today you were only 2. You love your daddy but you are a momma's boy. You love Emma so much and boy do you love Zoe. You are such a snuggler with us all including Zoe. We love you MORE then you could ever imagine. Here is a picture of us giving you your birthday present. I'm not sure your mommy and daddy knew what they were getting themselves into! Like Aunt Jessica said, it's something you give people you don't like (and that made me laugh out loud).

We decided to get some drums because he was using a Christmas tin for so long with ribbon around it to hang from his neck and spoons from the kitchen to play the drums. Now he has his first real drums. He loves them so much and has been playing them all day.

We love you so much Brooks, happy 3rd birthday!

Daddy, Mommy, Emma and Zoe

Every Halloween we go to my mom's neighborhood and trick or treat. This year they sold their house and moved to the lake. So we decided to go to Nancy's (Ben's mom) neighborhood and my mom and them joined us. We had a great time. This year Amy, Mark, Braegan, Shirley, Jennifer, Brian and their kids joined us. Here are some pictures from the night.
