{week 13} 10th annual t-day hunt

Monday, October 25, 2010

10 years ago when we first moved here....we started our annual family hunting trip.(usually thanksgiving weekend!) Kent's Grandpa and Grandma drive from Lumby to come up so Grandpa can go hunting for deer with him. Kent's mom always jumps in for the trip. Over the years a many of deer have been hunted! Also many additional guests have come over for turkey....sometimes we have a real big houseful! This year its just the three of them. We are so thankful for these memories.... this morning Kent took all the gramma's with them for a morning hunt! So me and the kidlets started the prep for dinner. Carrigan did the sweet potatoes and Makenna is making the pumpkin pies.
(so far this weekend the deer have been spared!):)

my boy Grady...finally some smiling pictures...the secret is to get him while he doing something he loves. We found this croquet set at a garage sale...its a hit! Anything with balls makes a great game! Oh what a lovely fall weekend!

I love being able to share an afternoon with a new family. Max is one very lucky little man. He has a very loving family to welcome him into the world. Of course he wanted to see what I was doing for most of the afternoon but I was able to snap a few sleepy shots of this sweet l'il face. Thanks for letting me capture some of his newest moments....here is a little sneak peak (more to come!)

{week 12} oh boy!

Oh boy! he is a big challenge to photograph these days! I even brought bribes; bright yellow car, rocket candies... He was one stubborn boy on this day trying to capture some pics for our xmas cards...takes after his daddy!:(

{week 11} movie & pizza night

Monday, October 11, 2010

I never let my kids eat on the couch....but tonight called for a special treat! Pizza and a movie. Daddy was away hunting so we rented some great movies. Flicka for the kids and chick flicks for me!

{friends} Farewell Canyon Hike

Sunday, October 10, 2010

A great last hurray at summer. We thought we'd better check out the great outdoors. A great way to spend a sunny day with friends.  The sand dunes were a hit. If your in the area and have never been its the best view ever and only takes us about an hour to hike in. Stay on the trail and watch out for cactus! Poor Johnny the dog got many many in his paws and such.

{5 years old} ear piercing

Saturday, October 9, 2010

I can't believe this day has come....the deal was to be 5 years old, quit sucking your finger and promise to keep your earings cleaned daily! So she has been sucky finger free since May...(or before) that's when she got her appliance removed for helping her quit!:) My little superstar. She then decided to get it done while we visited with Grama in Vernon (just like Makenna did!) She was sooo brave! Makes me a little sad to see her growing up so fast. She of course picked the ones with the most bling! (the pictures are from my p&s; forgot my memory card on camera grrr.!)

                                  {week 10} Farewell Canyon Hike

We decided to play hookie this past saturday from our regular scheduled indoor events (swimming & gymnastics) to spend a great day outside while the sun was shining! We packed our lunches and headed out west. We hiked with great friends to the sand dunes at Farewell....
We all came home weighing a little extra with the sand in our pockets and shoes! A great way to spend a beautiful fall day.
(here we are waiting for our friends to arrive; and they have been spotted...winding done the road!)
