Thanksgiving 2014

It's a week before Christmas and I am just updating my blog for Thanksgiving. To say that life has been busy is an understatement. Thanksgiving was a welcomed break from the craziness and everyday stresses of life! We traveled back to Tennessee for Thanksgiving with our families.

We got there two days before and spent some time with Easton's cousins before Uncle Justin picked them up after work. We also spent time with Mimi, Gram, and Grandee.
The next morning we had three little cuties on the couch eating breakfast. How I wish we had more morning's with our cousins!
That afternoon we headed to The Pottery Place to meet up with a dear friend and her two children. We let the kiddos paint Christmas ornaments and they just loved it.
Afterwards we headed to Easton's Grandma's house for Thanksgiving with my husbands family. We had a great time!

The next day was Thanksgiving Day so we spent the day at Gram's to have Thanksgiving with my family. We had a great day and enjoyed letting the kids play. 

The next day we did a little bit of shopping and then Uncle Justin took Easton on a quick hunting trip. Easton was thrilled!

Quick Weekend Home

Last weekend we made a quick trip home. Joe and Easton dropped me off at a Vendor Blender in Murfreesboro where my mom, Kelly, and Ashley had a booth selling Advocare. I bought this cute wooden sign while I was there.
Easton went with Joe to Yates' basketball game. He had been sick earlier in the week with croup, but had seemed to feel better and went back to school so we thought traveling would be fine. He felt pretty crummy so we ended up taking him back to the doctor when we got back with a sinus infection.
The main reason we went home was to be there for the first Sunday at Ivy Bluff. The church was just beautiful and I was so glad we were there.

Our Life Lately

I'm finding it difficult these to keep this blog updated regularly lately. Here is a quick peek into our life lately.......
Last weekend we had a date night with our favorite four year old tagging along - I guess it was more like family date night! We went out to eat at a local BBQ restaurant and then made a quick trip to Target!
We also enjoyed Fall Festival at Easton's Preschool. It was such a fun event and you could tell that so much hard work went into the planning and preparation of it. Easton had a blast playing games. He also really enjoyed the petting zoo.
Maggie and Molly turned 1 year old at the beginning of the month! These sweet sisters are something else - they have added a level of craziness to our home that we never knew existed, but we wouldn't trade them for anything. They are crazy, wild girls, but they sure are sweet.
Last week Easton was really sick and missed two days of school. He is feeling better, but isn't completely over it yet. We missed his field trip on one of the days that he was sick.
That about sums it up for now! We are busy, but are so blessed!

Easton dressed up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for Halloween - Rapheal to be exact. He is loving TMNT lately. He got to wear his costume to school for a class Halloween party.  
I dressed up as a Ninja Turtle, too! He was tickled that we were both turtles! It's the first time I've dressed up with him.
We started trick or treating in our neighborhood, but there were only a few houses with lights on and only one other family trick or treating. So, we drove down to another neighborhood to trick or treat. That neighborhood knows how to do Halloween! The houses were decorated for Halloween, there were tons of kids trick or treating, and it was such a fun atmosphere!

Fall Fun

We've enjoyed a few fun fall activities lately! Last weekend we went to a football game at the school we hope Easton will go to next year for Kindergarten. We atmosphere was great and we really enjoyed it! 
Earlier this week we carved a pumpkin! Easton did not like all of the icky stuff on his hands so I had the privilege of doing it! :) He loved drawing on the pumpkin and seeing what it looked like when we carved it!
