A day on the farm with Hunter

We had Hunter with us one afternoon at the farm a few days before Thanksgiving and he had an absolute ball. A lot of Adam's family was already in town so he just made himself at home and played with Landon (Adalyn was staying with Autumn!) and enjoyed walking around the farm. He is a typical 3 year old boy who loves tractors so he had a blast.

Once Christopher and Brandy picked up Hunter, we all went to dinner. It was such a fun day/night!!

Thanksgiving 2016

What a fun day we had celebrating Thanksgiving! We had great weather, great company and great food! We ate, lounged around, took some family pictures and shot guns the rest of the day. It was fabulous!

and SEE what else we learned?!?! YAY! I'm going to be an aunt AGAIN!!!

After pictures, the sweat pants went on ;)

and this was the result late Thanksgiving night :)
Tummies full and exhausted from playing non stop
and why they chose the floor, who knows! A king size bed is right beside them! 

For the first time since Adam and I have been together, his family celebrated Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving day instead of the day after due to traveling situations so we missed it :( It is always so nice celebrating on two separate days because we have always been able to spend the entire day/night with each family but we were still able to partake to tons of leftovers the next day! 

We had a great Thanksgiving break!

Landon's 5 year check up

I took Landon for his 5 year check up back at the beginning of November and absolutely could not believe I was walking in there with my 5 year old in tow. I thought back to all of those regular infant check ups where we brought him in his car seat and had to make sure we had pacifiers accessible at all times to help soothe after those shots to this particular day I took him to his appointment and we sat and talked while we waited about what kind of candy he was going to pick out once we left there. What a difference a few years makes! It's fun to think back and reminisce on his baby/toddler years and to see how much he has grown today. I love that sweet boy and so thankful he is mine!

We learned he is in the 98% in height and 97% in weight! He weighed in at 56 lbs and what is so funny is I found my old Ident-A-Kid card the other day dated back to 1994 when I was 8 years old. My weight was listed as 50 lbs... at 8 years old.... I couldn't help but to crack up knowing my 5 year old weighs more than I did at 8!

Happy Halloween! 2016

Finally, the weather for our area on Halloween was just about perfect. The past THREE years the weather was freezing cold and rainy!! It made for 3 messy Halloweens. But this year, thankfully, was perfect! It was actually on the warm side so I decided to put Adalyn in a short sleeve shirt instead of a long sleeve like she had worn days before at the reading night at school. We always Trunk or Treat at our Church for the night and then stop by and pick up supper on our way home. We have a picnic in the living room to end our night and snack on a few pieces of candy as well! 

I'm not even kidding when I say these are the only pictures I took on Halloween! That is really not like me but just imagine lots of inflatables, games, and waiting in line going from trunk to trunk. Lots of fun was had, promise!

Like mother like daughter :)

Halloween Reading Night

A few days before Halloween, Adalyn's school put on a Halloween reading night complete with lots of Halloween stories by different teachers, face painting, snacks, games and a HUGE trunk or treat to finish off the night! It was so so much fun and I am SO blessed to have my family be apart of this school!

Landon decided to be Thor this year for Halloween (which worked out perfect since we already had the costume!) and Adalyn chose to go as a Shopkin! She made the cutest Strawberry Kiss shopkin ever!

Just thought I'd throw these few pictures in at the bottom of this post. These were taken at preschool for their Trunk or Treat for the kids. Landon wanted to go as Superman!
