Grandma Kathy and Grandpa John visit

 The kids were just thrilled to have their other grandparents come visit so soon after the others! They enjoyed lots of time playing, baking, reading, and working!
 John did several projects in our yard while he was here as well as painting our garage!
 Kathy sewed this little bag for Emery's bike so he could carry all his rocks and leaves or whatever else little boys pick up on their bike rides!
 All ready for church!
 And I got lots of time to myself while the kids soaked up time with their grandparents. I'm pretty sure it was a win-win for everyone!
Come again soon!

Halloween 2011

Everyone was excited to go Trick-or-Treating this year. We found a great subdivision that hands out lots of candy! Emery skipped from house to house humming and just enjoying every minute of it. Lucy was very surprised to see candy in her bucket and quickly got the hang of it. In just over an hour we had collected a whole load of candy! Just the chocolate weighed over 4 lbs! Good times :)

Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Paul visit

 The kids had such a blast while Grandma and Grandpa were here! I make this "road" out of masking tape for them to play on.

They spent lots of time playing outside, going for walks and bike rides and playing in the backyard.

 Grandma also made hats for Emery and Lucy while she was here!

We went to pick out pumpkins!

Thanks for coming! Come again soon :)

Emery's 5th Birthday!

Emery was so lucky to have his Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Paul in town for his 5th birthday! After school, they took him to the mall for ice cream and a train ride.

Emery loved decorating his cake and having everyone sing to him!

Earlier in the month Emery had a Halloween birthday party with lots of friends. They painted pumpkins,

ate mac and cheese and pb&j for lunch,

had cookies and cakes,

played games (like pin the nose on the pumpkin and ring toss)

and had a screaming good time!

 Opening presents is always so much fun!

Happy Birthday to the sweetest boy I know! :)
