Harper’s 2nd Birthday Party!

Due to Homecoming falling on Harper’s birthday weekend, we had her party the next weekend.  We went with a pumpkin theme this year:


I bought little gourds and stickers for the kids to decorate:


We rented a bounce house (mainly for the bigger kids, especially since to this point Harper hated bounce houses). It didn’t fit the theme of the party, but Harper loves her some Elmo:


We had been wanting to make an outdoor chalkboard for the kids for a while, this seemed like a great time to do it, so Trent did!


My sweet (insanely talented) friend made the party favors:



My kids love them a baby:

The birthday girl apparently thought the lawn could use a cut:


Harper shocked us by getting in AND enjoying the bounce house:

I think the dad’s enjoyed it even more than the kids did:

My sweet birthday girl!  She was very shy during the singing portion:

She was very excited to open gifts and had two excellent helpers:

It was such a sweet, little party to celebrate our sweet, little girl. :)

Last soccer game

We had one game cancelled due to weather, so our season went over by a week.  The last game fell on a very warm (for November), blustery day.  It was super windy:


We were missing two players and our coach that day, Trent stepped in as coach (Hud loved that):

Our boys love the run through tunnel:

Chilly morning…

We spent a fun, but chilly! morning at that park with Mallie and Alan.

I am not sure why this one thinks she is so big!!


King of the rock!


Sweet friends:


Thankful tree

Our family started a thankful tree this year! It was so fun to fill out our leaves with what we are most thankful for.  This was the night we started it, by the end it was very full. So thankful for my precious family.


Lunch with Daddy!

The kids love going to Daddy’s work and having lunch with him.  I try to take them once a month. Hudson loves the “greasy” chips and playing with Trent’s co-workers computer. :)

After rest that day, we spent the afternoon riding bikes. Which is the new favorite pastime for the kids!

Soccer Party!

The boys had their end of season party at McDonald’s. We love our sweet little team!  I hope these boys play together for a long time!

Our coach was so sweet to make awards for each of the players!
