Wyatt's 1st day of Pre-School

Today is Wyatt's first day of Pre-School!!! He was so excited! He wouldn't let me take a picture of him until I took a picture of his spider man backpack first. He was 2 teachers, Mrs. Carole, and Mrs. D. There are 3 other kids in his class so far so the student teacher ratio is awesome! He makes the 2nd boy, and there are 2 girls. i can't wait to go and pick him back up at 11:45. In a week or two he will start taking a bus to and home from school. The bus comes at picks him up and drops him off at our home. He is growing but so fast. It was a bitter sweet experience dropping him off at school this morning.

First Snow

Today we had our first real snow. It was Hunter's first time in the snow since he was one (he had no memory of it). This was Wyatt's first time. They went out to play around 5pm today when the snow really started coming down. The boys had snowball fights, threw snowballs at me, and at the sliding glass door. Hunter made a snow angel and tried to get Wyatt to do it but he didn't want to lay down (never does). When Tyson came home he attacked the boys with snow balls and then together they built a snowman. We used a carrot of course for the nose, olives for the eyes, red wired yarn for the mouth, ribbon for the scarf, and twig branches for the arms. Wyatt had to have a carrot to eat too cause the snowman's nose was looking mighty tasty to him. We finished our evening taking the boys to Artic Circle for dinner and play, and then Tyson and hunter went to the college basketball game. It was a great evening.

Thanksgiving Crafts

Here are some more Thanksgiving crafts. Did I mention that I LOVE GLITTER! They last picture is a subway art board with sheet metal on it that my good friend Amy made for me (you probably remember the Halloween one, she made me a Christmas one too but you'll have to wait for that one). I am Thankful for many things in my life, especially family and friends.

This year being our first year in Idaho, the boys had a cold Halloween. We went to a thing in town with out friends the Schewie's, where the local business all got together and were passing our candy for trick-or-treaters. Afterwards we all went over to our friend Chad's (it was is birthday) to have dinner (lasagna) and then took the kids around trick-or-treating while Chad and Jake scared all the trick-or-treaters. It was a fun filled evening with our family and friends.

Jayah, Leah, Wyatt & Hunter

It was cold so I gave Hunter my sweatshirt to wear and then he would wrap Wyatt up in it with him.

Today at school Hunter fell on his face on his nose. It started to bruise across the middle of his nose and a little under his eyes, beside making his nose swell. He had just had his nose cartized a week ago.

Boys with the sonic shake guy.
I so remember the ham-burgler guy. My boys had no idea who he was.
