Gavin turns 6!!

My boy is getting older as we speak! Gavin has decided he wants to take karate. It is all he ever talks about. Blayne and I decided to buy him a Gi for his birthday. He tries to wear it almost every day. We had the Moore family staying with us, he also invited Nathan and Ryan McNamee. It was pretty chaotic but fun.

Then, not even one week after his birthday he figured his tooth was loose. He found it Monday night and couldn't go to bed until he had pulled on Tuesday night. Then he was so excited to have lost his first tooth, he had the hardest time going to bed last night. He was so funny, I wish I could have gotten the commentary and pep talk he was giving himself int he bathroom mirror. Such and milestone, to lose your first tooth!!

Some stuff.........

The other evening while the kids were "sleeping" we went into the girls room to find Maddy awake. This wouldn't have been completely out of the ordinary had we not stumbled upon what she was doing.......

I couldn't attempt to wash it until we took some pictures. We asked what she was thinking and she told us she was drawing her family. I couldn't get mad, it was pretty sweet. Of course it was cuter before I took the paint off the wall while trying to remove it.

I took the kids to have their pictures taken today. I attempted to stop and take a few of my own before we got there. I found my camera with a dead battery. I was able to take the first picture right when I turned it on then it would die. I managed to turn it off and on then repeat the process before it completely died. Thankfully, I managed to get one.

On our way home from lunch with G'ma Mary, for Gavin's birthday, we managed to get a good picture of Mt. Hood. The snow is piling up and our family is getting very excited to go and play in it, Blayne more than anyone!

Out with Halloween, now preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The kids happened to have a very busy Halloween this year. It started with a neighborhood party, then the Ward Harvest Party, Blayne and G'pa Doug took them Trick-or-treating then they finished off the night by handing out candy to other kids. All and all it was a fun Halloween. We are thankful the weather held out and didn't rain or get too cold.

I hope everyone had a great and safe Halloween!
