Air Force Baseball visits school

Every second Tuesday, the Air Force Academy visits the school and shows the kids how to play certain sports and yesterday was baseball and Gavin enjoyed it more than the rest! He was overjoyed and hyped! They learned to throw, hit and actually play the game. Here are pictures:

50th day of school and dress up from the 50's. Here is my reluctant greaser upset that mom made him dress up. "I don't like the 50's Mom".
Gavin liked this picture of the full moon because it looked like a heart so I thought I would share it with you. I was experiment with different buttons on the camera! Enjoy!!!
Guess who's due in 2 months???



SANTA!!!!!! Bet I had you fooled!

End of October

The end of October has been exciting with snow and cold and fun!!! Not to mention Halloween!!!!

We finally used our Sportsman's Warehouse card and bought this cool camo jacket. Thanks Uncle Keven!

Time for yard work but it looks like that Gavin is having much more fun laying/jumping in my pile of leaves.

Throwing piles of leaves at Mom.

Here is my knight in shining armor.


I had to work so the boys had to do their own trick or treating. They went up and down the block and a few other streets and when I called Gavin later in the evening to find out how it was he said "Mom our street gave up on Halloween, they only had 3 houses for treats". What a disappointment for a little kid. So they went a few blocks and then came home and passed out candy at the house while some friends came over.
