We spent Thanksgiving at my sister Katie's house in Eagle Mountain. We had so much fun (although we missed Mark and Bethany!) and the boys got to explore their feminine sides. Katie and Chad only have girls hence only girl toys...

"What is this thing?"

And sorry Katie, if Kinsey's fake foods have bite marks in them, I think Ashton was having trouble waiting for dinner!

The Bed That Love Built

2 years in the making, Dave finally had time (and a place) to finish building our rustic log bed we've had in storage! The boys were a BIG help, pre-distressing the wood and re-locating all of Daddy's drill bits for him! Mommy was supposed to be sanding, but obviously ended up hiding out behind the camera as usual. (hence Daddy is doing all the sanding in the photos) Well, it took us about 1 1/2 weeks of cutting, sanding, staining (and a little bit of tripping on the stain fumes) and we're finally sleeping like royalty! HAHA I will have to post the finished product later when I figure out a way to take a picture of it because it is so huge that I can't get in the room to photo it! (not exaggerating )

We went to see the WeeWoo!

Last weekend our friend took us to the firestation where her brother works as a firefighter. The boys got to ride in the truck and also fire off the hose! I'm pretty sure it was the highlight of their lives! Dave got to go up on the ladder and although he won't admit it, he almost peed himself! I know I would have!

Celebrating Ashton

Ashton turned 2 on November 7.
Our little guy is so full of personality, we never know what to expect from him next!
He's so sweet and cuddly, yet a little feisty and whiny at times!
We are so very blessed to have him in our family. It was such a struggle getting him here, but all worth it to have such a precious spirit in our home! Happy Birthday Ash, we love you so very much!
