I took Carter and Lucy to see Santa at the mall this year. Carter loved Santa - and he isn't usually very friendly to people he doesn't know. He sat on his lap and told Santa how he wanted a "jungous car" for Christmas. I am guessing he means humongous. Then they talked about transformers for awhile, so Carter thinks Santa is pretty cool. Lucy was really good with him, too. She was mostly interested in his beard!

Christmas Tree

Every year we drive to the Pine Patch in Horseshoe Bend to pick out our Christmas tree. We watch The Polar Express in the truck and roast marshmallows while they get our tree ready to go. It is so much fun - here are some cute pictures from this year.


For Thanksgiving this year we volunteered at the mission downtown. We were originally going to serve dinner, but they had twice as many volunteers as people there to eat. So instead, we went to another building and sorted all of their food donations. We had a really great time, it was fun to be there with our families and it really felt like we were doing something to help. Afterwards, we went to my mom and dad's for dinner, ate WAY too much and planned our shopping route for the next morning.


So I know I am way behind, but I have so many cute pictures from Halloween I still wanted to post them. Lucy was dressed up as a flower and Carter was a race car driver - big surprise, I know. He thought he was Lightning McQueen. We had an awesome time trick-or-treating. Carter loved it! We walked down the hill to Banbury and Lucy was asleep by the time we got there.
