Thanksgiving 2010

my favorite holiday...

we played a game called "thankerchief."
it is like duck, duck, goose-
but you have to say what you are thankful and
you can't repeat what has already been said.
it is a great new tradition, started by avaree!
we have so much to be thankful for!

Avaree the Indian

Did you know that Jason is a 1/4 indian?
My family always joked when they first met Jason that he looked like the indian from the "Indian In The Cupboard."

Avaree is pretty proud of the fact the she is part indian. She is related to Chief White Cloud and Crazy Horse.

Her teacher was so impressed with Avaree's "mature" patterns and design. This girl loves to create.

Our thankful turkey.

walking and drool

at 16 months, franklin is finally walking!
i forgot how cute it is when babies first start walking.
he is still unsteady.
he keeps his hands out to the side for balance.
he's got it down though...
there is no going back.

along with walking, he is dripping with drool.
lots of teeth are on their way.

playing in the leaves

we had a leaf fight and made shadow puppets.
weston's shadow almost looks as tall as mine.
he'll probably pass me up before we know it...
he is obsessed with the fact that he is growing big right now.

griffin is 16!

griff is a halloween baby.
his festivities usually get postponed for a day
because of all the halloween fun.

he chose chicken dumplings and rice pilaf for his dinner.

griffin has his learners permit but didn't sign up for drivers ed this semester so he has to wait another semester before he can drive. (at least he has baylee to help him get around for now! ) he is not really into dating yet, which is fine by me! jason ordained him a priest on his actual birthday. griff has a strong sense of who he is. he doesn't need to impress anyone. he is my BIG helper. he will do anything i need or ask without complaining. i appreciate his respect and obedience. my children love him- avaree likes to be his side kick while he plays video games. weston & frankie shoot hoops with him daily. i pray my children will follow in his footsteps. our family would not be the same without him.
we love you, griff.
happy birthday!
