Typical moment at our house-
- Carolyn took my camera.. again. (blurry pic)
- Katie's only wearing underwear. Playing with her baby pink monkey.
- Her hair isn't combed. Carolyn's hair likely isn't either.
- Benji's climing ... on the bed frame.
- John likely just jumped onto the bed OR is getting ready to bury under the covers...again. (a reason I don't always make our bed in the am)
- I'm pretty sure it's bedtime. And none of them are getting ready for bed.. because their jumping on it!

I'm embarassed at how long it's taken me to get these pictures on here. Rhonda at Sew Personal Designs was kind enough to make these shirts for the 4 kids. I've yet to met Rhonda in person, but we have many mutual friends. I'm pretty sure our paths will cross... someday soon! Thanks again Rhonda! The kids LOVE them... and so do I! (This isn't the best picture.. but it was the day we got the shirts in the mail. I couldn't get the shirts on them fast enough..)

We enjoyed our time with friends the other day. Most of the time spent outdoors was riding this toy. After a lap around the yard, Benji got the low-down on how to run the machine. Off he went. Chloe was nice enough to drive the other 3 kids around the yard. It was a blast. Now our kids want one! :)
Benji and Chloe
Then it was Chloe/Casey's turn, Chloe's turn, Benji's turn, Chloe/Carolyn's turn, Benji's turn, Chloe's turn.... until it started to rain.

Thanksgiving was here again this year. We do things alittle different. Our meal is for supper. It works out pretty good. The guys can hunt, and us girls have all day to have some fun, I mean prepare for the big meal. Everyone is happy (as long as the guys get their deer).
We had 25 people here. 10 kids. The oldest was 8. The youngest was 10 mos. The house was hopping. The food was great. The night went too fast. The end.

I bet most people thought hunting season was over. But... it isn't. I should be glad that the season isn't as long as it is out west. Either way, it puts meat in our freezers. So no major complaints here. Our hunting crew (Boppa, Gma, Daddy, Joe) brought in quite a few deer (and a few nice bucks- maybe 4-5?). I haven't heard the offical count. But judging by the meat in the freezer... it was enough until next year! :)
Katie and her kitty(Daddy brags about how fast he can gut a deer. Under 60 seconds for sure. If it were me.. I wouldn't brag about being the fastest, I'd try to be the slowest.. then I'd get out of the job. Difference between husband and wife I guess :) John was as close as he could get, saying: 'Ouch!' 'Yuck!'. Never leaving Daddy's side. Silly kid! (If you look closely, you'll see him holding onto his trains.. That boy NEVER is without a train, or two, or four)

Awhile back, All American Family had a post, I was the lucky winner. Shortly after, I recieved my gift card, some hot cocoa and an awesome
To say this creamer is delish (in cocoa) is a huge understatement. I also won't tell you how many cups of cocoa I've had since getting this creamer. :)
But I will say a huge THANK YOU to Kristin!

Better late than never, right? Almost 2 weeks ago, we had a joint birthday for Boppa and Benji. Benji requested Buzz Lightyear Pumpkin Cupcakes, topped with sprinkles of course.
John ended up napping right thru cake and present time...
6 of the 10 grandkids with Boppa. 2 were napping and the other 2 weren't able to come.
The bow goes everywhere he does. By the time he can hunt, he'll be a mean, lean hunting machine. So far his sisters have been able to out run the arrows... just kidding!
