So many things to be thankful for!

Faith, hope, family, courage and friends – the 5 things I am most thankful for in my life!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  I wanted to post some great family pictures from our Thanksgiving in Troy.  Thanks to Uncle Al and Aunt Sissy for hosting all of our extended family and sharing their home to all of us!  We had a wonderful time playing with their Wii game console and even Willpower played a few games.  He pitched a few homeruns for Uncle Al and bowled a few great games.  I am hoping Santa Claus gets our x-mas list that includes a Wii console.

With only 23 days until Christmas, we have been reading and talking about Santa Claus with young Will.  He knows he must be a good boy for Santa to leave gifts under the tree.  Very tempting bribery when he is completely misbehaving…

Check out the Will Christmas Tree this year!

2009 Halloween

Finally, I got off my lazy pants and uploaded the Halloween and birthday pictures.  And it’s not Gordy’s fault at all.  I was very excited that I was able to make Will’s costume this year – “Mommy’s Little Mummy”  Hoping every year Will and I can get creative and make his costumes.  I looked at a lot of the racks of costumes at the retails stores and thought everything was a bit boring and redundant.  Plus I kept thinking back to my mom making every one of our Halloween costumes and thought I should carry on the fun tradition.  The weekend before Halloween we got together with all of our friends and kids and did a big pumpkin carving night.  Of course the kids did it for all of 10 minutes and left the moms left to do the hard parts!
