Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

I did not take one picture on Thanksgiving. I know, I know, Bad mom. I was cooking though and it just got crazy!! The day after we went to the Christmas tree farm and I made up for lost pictures. A friend told me about a different Christmas tree farm so we decided to try it out. We LOVED it!! There were animals and hot chocolate and hay rides! Above all BEAUTIFUL trees!
On the hunt!

Gracie liked this one, but it was just not big enough!

On the hay ride! We actually saw the tree we picked from the hay ride, great way to see a lot of trees quickly!

Sean was not that amused. I may have been a little obnoxious with the camera while on the hay ride.

So lets put him in the spirit!

Back on the hunt (with hot chocolate!)

We found the tree. Sean and GW had fun with the pole while waiting for them to cut our tree. Here they were bending it and then letting it go.

The kids played chase through the trees while they were cutting it down and loading it.

All loaded up and ready to take home!

It is decorated now, but I still have several things to do today so the final product will be in a later post!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Fall Pics






Julie did an amazing job! I am having trouble picking which to print off for frames and which one I want to use for Christmas cards, even which to put on my blog!

Julie - Thank you so much! You have captured some of my most treasured family pictures!

He is Eight


I just snuggled him and told him eight years ago right now he was still in my tummy. It just does not seem possible. He is eight. I love you my sweet red haired, freckle faced, cartoon loving, little man!

Viking Sunday


Little Man is not looking at the camera, but I thought they were so cute in their matching Farve jerseys playing football at half time!

Joy



Meet Baby Bum. We did not find out of Baby Bum is a girl or a boy, even though S/he tried really hard to show us! We did find out that Baby Bum does not have rocker bottom feet. Baby Bum does not have a cleft lip or palette. Baby Bum does not have anything that would cause the doctor to be concerned or think that Baby Bum is anything but a normal, growing baby. The ultrasound tech even got some amazing shots of the heart and those images ruled out 98% of all heart defects. To say Sean and I walked out of the doc's office with a huge weight off our shoulders would be an understatement. The US Tech spent all the time we needed looking at anything we asked her to. She said that God was with us because the baby was in the perfect position to get the images we needed. Sean told her 21 weeks of anxiety was just lifted. I think for the first time in a long time I felt just pure joy. Thankful. Blessed. Joyful.

Cute Boots


at least I think so. Sean bought them for me a while back and I thought they would look cute with the skirt I wore today. The problem is I am 20 weeks pregnant. I am so swollen (I always swell bad and early on) and these cute boots were not made for 20 week pregnant, swollen legs.



Sorry, maybe I should have posted a warning of gross feet pictures! They looked fine this morning when I left for the school ( I was subbing today), but when I got home my legs were spilling out over the top of the boots (not cute) and there were huge indentations where my ankles usually are. So, no more cute boots for me this year. I will be wearing tennis shoe or something comfy!

Trick or Treat!






The kids had a blast! I love our neighborhood! We invited some friends to go with us and all 5 kids names start with "G" ! I think I was tongue tied all night. They got a lot of candy and had a lot of fun playing afterward and Sean played with his car so all in all, it was a good night!
