Benjamin turned FIVE this month. The kids had two days off from school so we went to McCall for the long weekend and celebrated Benj's birthday there. He got an ITouch, Hot Wheels track, cars, Disney Headbands Game, and a pillow pet. (Sorry about the quality of pictures...we only had Nathan's Iphone documenting the weekend.)
We had a GREAT time!!! We played outside, went on walks, watched an Ice Hockey Tournament in town, walked around in town, went out to lunch for Benj's birthday, and played a lot of games!!!
Hot Dog Bob came every day for a visit. She brought a friend with her that we've never met before so that was fun.
Happiest of Birthdays Benj!!! We think you're pretty AWESOME!!!
As I promised, here is a little "Catching Up" from the past couple of months.
We did a LOT of soccer in September and October.
Andrew had a tournament in October and we loved that Nonnie and Grandpa came from Oregon and Auntie Jayna, Uncle Ryan, Elize and Norah came from Utah to watch the boys play. Andrew's team took the Championship in his bracket.
Sarah spent four days at MOSS (McCall Outdoor Science School) and had a WONDERFUL time! She didn't even get homesick (but, boy howdy did everyone miss her at home!!!). She put feathers in all the girls hair (all but three), loved playing on the beach and thought she had the COOLEST cabin of girls!!
We had fun at the Harvest Festival at Farwest Nursery.
Benj had his last game and party with his team.
Levi and Mom played at the park.
We went to National Museum Day and had SO much fun!
Sarah participated in a program called Girls On Track. The program focuses on teaching the girls life skills while training them to run a 5K. Sarah and Nathan ran in the Barber to Boise race and had a great time running together. (Photo soon coming of them together.)
We hope you've all had a wonderful Fall and Happy Halloween!
Our home won First Place in our neighborhood for Best Harvest Theme.
The little boys had so much fun playing in the leaves!
We love carving pumpkins with the Ramey family!
Just in case you can't tell, Sarah was a Renaissance girl, Andrew was a Nerd, Spencer was a Knight, Benj was Spiderman (the black one) and Levi was Thomas the Train.
Levi was NOT excited about getting his picture taken.
So, he sat in the road for a little bit.
It took him about three houses to figure it out and then he didn't want the evening to end. Levi loved running from door to door getting candy!!
This is how he felt about the evening. He LOVED it!! But then, look at our other cute kids and they seem to have LOVED getting candy as well!!
I don't have a picture of Andrew because he and Nathan kept going. Andrew got SEVEN pounds of candy!!! Just try to imagine his smile!!
I'll do a "catch up" post soon!!!!
