Carving pumpkins

We had had a nice weekend.  It was a beautiful day so on sunday it was so nice outside we decided to carve pumpkins out there.  Brady had been asking dad every night for the last week if we could carve pumpkins.  Jas told him if we carved them to early before Halloween they would get all wrinkly and shrivel up!  So Brady said to me the very next day after Jas had said that, "mom we can't carve pumpkins because they'll get all shiveled up".  So he understood and didn't bother us till the day finally came!  This was the first year Blake carved his all by his self.  He was so proud of his self!  Bailey was like an old pro, and with his imagination he wanted to carve his as a man behind bars!  So he cut out a bunch of lines and a face.  I helped Brady with his and then he added some special touches after I was done with a carving tool!

Fort Fest in our living room!

November 2009
Gosh it's hard for me to remember exactly when all this fort building started.  But it seems like we've consistantly had a fort in our living room every morning for 6 months!  It's the first thing Brady does after the brothers go to school.  His fort's consist of couch "pushins", (as Brady would say), couch pillows, every single stuffed animal from his bedroom, his pillow and lots of blankets.  Oh and we can't forget his lovey's and bear!  Its so cute he'll ask, "can I build a fort mom"?  And I say as long as you pick it up!  But guess who ends up picking up or at least helping, yes mom or dad (if it's still up come dinner time).  On this particular morning Maggee thought it would be a good place to take a nap.  So Brady let her.  I have to say these days won't last forever.  So what the hell, right!

Spokane with 60 inches of snow in December!

We went up to Snowkane after Christmas and got to play in the 3+ feet of snow on the ground. It was quite the sight. The kids loved it. We helped Pat shovel off the decks before they collapsed like the rest of the buildings in town.

Christmas 2008

We stayed home for Christmas this year and then traveled to Spokane for a few days after Christmas. The boys had a great Christmas break.
