It's not very often at all that I get just a girl's night, but I vote I should get more! =)

Thanksgiving weekend was very relaxing and enjoyable this year. My parents just bought a beautiful new home in Delaware Ohio which is about 40 minutes away from me now. So this was our first family gathering at their new home. We ended up just staying and sleeping up their the entire weekend.
My mom invited the missionaries to join us for the day. We had a delicious dinner that everyone pitched in and help make.
Kai's first Thanksgiving dinner.Mashed potatoes. =)
My mom's new house has a hot tub so that was a nice relaxing luxury we enjoyed that weekend.
It was Santa's first night at the Festival of lights and we waited about half an hour to see him. This was the first year that Eli didn't freak out at the sight of him. He actually walked right up to him jumped on his lap and asked him for some new choo choo trains. =) Noah jumped on his lap and Santa asked what he wanted and he said I sent you a list in the mail. (which he did about a week prior.) He is soooo excited for Christmas!
This Thanksgiving I am so thankful to have such an wonderful family. I have the GREATEST kids and husband a girl could ask for. I have the best parents, brothers, and sisters. We all just have so much fun together and I love them all so much. I couldn't have asked for a better family.

I was going through my pictures and came across these. How could I forget to post something as exciting and fun as Noah and Eli's very first swimming lessons this last summer. My mom has been teaching them both to swim since they were about 1. Just a little 15 minute lesson every time we go to the pool. Well it has definitely paid off because they both did so good with their teachers and they loved it! They were such little fish and it made me one proud momma .=)
Looking at these make me miss summer and the pool days already!

5 years ago on November 3rd my sweet little guy Noah came into this world. Here he is on the day he was born. I loved that he had so much hair. He was such a chubby, beautiful baby. I did not want to cut his hair for the first year of his life. Don't ask me why but I did the same with Eli and am doing the same for Kai. So this is him on his 1st birthday right before his first haircut. =)Birthday #2Around birthday #3Birthday #4..... Like the bow in his hair? The closest thing I will ever have to a girl I'm sure. =)Birthday #5!!! This year for Noah's birthday I decided to just do a family birthday party. Since we had been sick the 2 weeks before his birthday, I didn't have time to plan and execute a big birthday party. We had a fun day, ALL DAY! After preschool in the morning we went our good friend Cathie and her kids to Mcdonalds for lunch and played for nearly 2 hours on the playground. Then when Kenta got home from work we met my parents and sister at Graeters and had icecream and played some more. After Graeters everyone went back to my house to open gifts, play with his new toys and games, eat pizza and watched a movie together.

A week and half before Halloween we all got sick one right after another with the swine flu. At first I didnt think it was that but when Noah and Eli starting coughing up a lung and they were sounding terrible I took them to the doctor. Their doctor tested for H1N1 and sure enough it came back positive. Oh lucky us! Columbus is a big college football town and on Halloween there was an OSU game so they switched treak or treating to the thursday before halloween. We were all feeling a lot better by then but not 100%. The kids were all ready to go trick or treating but I didnt want them to spread there germs around to much. But we decided to let them go trick or treating at grandma and grandpas house. By Halloween on Saturday we were feeling 100%. Well except for Kai had a runny nose but he was acting like his happy self again. So Chance and Jess invited us up to Toledo to stay with them and go trick or treating in their neighborhood. I warned them about the sickness we just recently had but they stilll wanted us to come. We drove the 2.5 hours to see them and we had a fun relaxing weekend with them. Lots of playing in the leaves, carving pumpkins, going out to eat, playing cards, staying up till 1:00 a:m watching scary movies and of course trick or treating!! Thanks guys for letting us com play with you. =)
Kai's little friend for the weekend was little pablo who just could not leave Kai alone! Carving some pumpkins...again....
This is right before we went trick or treating. It was a pretty cold evening so good thing their costumes were warm!
TRICK OR TREAT!!!
