Thanksgiving this year has been a good one, other than Brandon had to work Thanksgiving day :( No fun.  We were with my family this year and Grandpa and Grandma Sheriff were able to come down to be with us even though the crazy winter storm almost made them cancel.  But they made it and we had a really good day.  Grandma Evertsen made some fun books for the kids that was called The Turkey with the Terrible Tantrum.  The kids loved it and loved to color in them.  Then we all got to say what we were thankful for and the kids loved being able to say what they were thankful for and be the center of attention for a minute.  Asher was thankful for the turkey books Grandma made them.  Olivia was grateful for all her blessings and for her family and Avaree said (with help) that she was grateful for grandma's and grandpa's and all our family.  We ate and ate and ate till we wanted to burst!  It was all so yummy!  We didn't have room for any pie for a few hours, but when we finally felt able to eat again we totally indulged ourselves in the amazing pies that Lexy (my sister) made.  We took the kids to see Tangled and they loved it.  It was pretty cheesy even for a disney movie, but really cute.  By then it was time to go home and go to bed.  We were grateful that Brandon was able to join us for the movie, the kids were so sad he wasn't around especially Avaree, she was clingy all day and cried for her daddy.

 Making fudge with Grandma! Yum Yum!!

 The fudge never got to set up because we ate too much of it.

 While we were busy cooking and cleaning, Avaree found great Grandma's lipstick and isn't she so pretty?  Love the color Aves!

We had so much fun making fudge with Grandma!  Even me if you can't tell!  I revert back to a child when Grandma Sheriff is around- I love her to pieces!!  Grandpa too!  Over all it's been an enjoyable weekend.

November craft

Asher was really board today when none of the neighbors could play and he said we needed to do an activity and paint something.  I thought that was a good idea and got online to find a simple craft to do with stuff we already had.
This is what we came up with.  Plastic cup turkeys.  I think they are horrendous looking but they had a lot of fun making them and spending time together is always a plus!

 So I was baby sitting my nephew and my neighbors baby at the same time and the kids thought it was so fun to hang out in the baby seat.  Avaree is obsessed with baby seats and car seats with buckles!

While I'm busy watching babies all day long Avaree is free to get into any thing she wants to. Like my make up.  It's not the first time and probably won't be the last time it happens.

Halloween Night.
