Christmas lights

Matthew was determined to put Christmas lights on top of our two-story house. I was so scared when he was on the ladder with the wind blowing so much so he decided to harness himself to a tree in the back yard. This is him rappelling off our house. YES, I SAID RAPPELLING. Lets just say that I did not watch him on top of the house and prayed a lot for him. I am not looking forward to him doing this every year.

"Running" Errands

Jennfier had this conversation with Abi the other night on the way out the door.

Mom: "I'm going to run some errands, Y'all be good for Daddy and I will be home later."
Abi: "Mommy, RUN really really fast, ok.
And bring me back a scooter."

Cooper Smiling

We have a Bounce House in town now and we went for the first time today. The kids loved it!!! Cooper hung out on the floor and played while the older kids bounced. He is such a happy baby and is always smiling. I am enjoying every minute with him and can't believe he is 9 months this week. I love how he always wants to snuggle and spend time with me. I feel so blessed to have 3 beautiful and healthy children.

School Program

Logan and Abi had a Thanksgiving program at school. They each sang a song and then we had a Thanksgiving Feast with everyone. They both did very well and Logan knew the words to his whole song. We love to see our children having so much fun and learning new things every week.

Daddy and Logan at Deer Lease

We went to the deer lease as an entire family for 3 nights and slept in our new camper. It was fun, exhausting, and cold. We were pretty cold the first night with the temps in 20's. After finding a few heaters, we were ok the other nights. No one got a deer this time but everyone, including Cooper, went hunting. It was interesting, and memorable.

Conversation With Abi at Costco

We were at Costco on Sunday after church and Abi fell in love with a doll house bigger than she is. She was playing with it for a while and all these people were walking by looking at her and saying how cute she was. Well, then daddy walked by and this is the conversation:

Abi: "Look Daddy at this big doll house."

Matthew: "Oh, cool!"

Abi: "I want one."

Matthew: "No Abi, that is too expensive. Daddy could build you one for cheaper."

Abi was fine with daddy's response but continued looking at the house. Matthew and I began to walk away and we turned around to find Abi having a conversation with an older man and woman.

Man and Women: "Wow, look at this doll house. That is so awesome."

Abi (while shaking her hands "no" at them): "No, no. That is just too expensive."

And then Abi just walked off. We were all rolling, including the man and woman.

Logan's Jumping Adventure

We went to the Bounce House in CS and this is Logan having a little too much fun. I know you will laugh watching this.

Abi is also bouncing, she is in the purple shirt. But, she is no where near as adventurous as Logan.

Abi is playing in the fountains at the mall. Logan said it was too cold, but my brave little girl will do ANYTHING.

My Sweet Boy

Cooper is 7 months old and is such a sweety. He loves watching Abi and Logan play and run around. He is a mamas-boy and loves to cuddle. I am trying to take in all the snuggles I can get. I now realize how fast they grow up.
