Day 4 & 5

Day 4: Today the kids got to pick where to eat for lunch and they picked Monterrey’s. We had a very busy day at church and we didn’t even take pictures!!

Day 5: Family Game Night  Tonight the kids got to pick the games we played for our family game night. They choose Pay Day and Skip Boo. Zac had a bad day at school so he missed the first game because he had to write 25x’s I will be listen and follow directions at school!!


Day 2 & Day 3

Day 2: The kids got new PJ’s and we watched The Polar Express and drank hot coca.




Day 3: We all got up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning to go and serve breakfast at Miracle Hill. The kids loved helping to cook the breakfast and getting to serve. We had a huge group from our Sunday School class and it was a blast.


25 Days of Christmas

This year we decided to start an Advent Calendar. I thought it would help us to intentionally do more as a family. The kids loved it and we will be doing it again next year for sure! Each day they opened and envelope that told what we were doing for that day. Some days it was us doing something fun and other days it was us doing for others.


Day1: The first day we went to look at Christmas lights and finished with ice cream from Tutti Frutti. Stacy had told us about a cool house on Lake Bowen that you drive the yard at and that’s were we went. It was really cool and the kids loved it. 


I’m Back!! I have decided to try blogging again.

Pumpkin Carving and Trunk or Treat

Here are the kids pumpkin creations this year.

Karson with the Trick or Treat pumpkin:

Every Halloween our church host a trunk or treat event where you fill your car trunk with candy and kids come thru the line to trick or treat. Every year we have about 1500 kids come thru so we have to have lots and I mean lots of candy! Our Sunday School class helps with the candy and we are always able to give several pieces to each child. It was raining this year so the church decided to hold the event in our gym. It was much better because you could actually see the kids costumes. This year the Cotheran's met up with us and they helped give out candy too. The Laney's and Nana and Aunt G also had their own tables on either side of us this year so we had a long line of kids giving out candy.

Riverbanks Zoo

Before Halloween we went to Riverbank Zoo with the Cotheran's and the Laney's. We spent the day looking at all the different animals at the zoo and of course we posed for plenty of photographs along the way.

The whole crew:

After spending the day looking at the animals we left and got some dinner where we met up with the Waddell's and headed back to the zoo for Boo at the Zoo. The kids get to dress up in their costumes and trick or treat at the zoo. Karson was a diva (of course) and both the boys were something from GI Joe.

All the girls
