Turkey Day

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Utah. We headed down on Wednesday night after Cameron got off work. My job was to make pumpkin pies, six of them to be exact. Apparently that is my job every other year. We had lots of good food and ate until we couldn't eat any more. After we let our stomach digest some of our food we headed out to go bowling. Some of our cousins came with us and we had such a good time. The kids got their own lane with bumber guards and did a great job. I wish we had the guards too, it would have been alot easier to knock the pins down. On Friday we went to the Festival of Trees and saw some awesome trees. My dad's favorite was the Home Depot tree, and of course Braden found a cool Superhero tree. We also checked out a cool Ifly thing they have downtown, it is like skydiving, just a big fan blowing people in the air!!

Saturday was the big Holiday Parade with Santa. We bundled up the kids and had fun watching the parade. The highlight was to see Star Wars characters walking in the parade. We couldn't quite get the connection between them and Christmas but to Braden it was the best thing ever. Malia loved the Pina Colada sucker that she got, so I could enjoy the parade!!

After the parade the city plugs in their lights and the whole downtown was lit up. Christmas is officially here. Yipee!!

Food!! Glorious Food!!

Well it may be a shock to hear that Malia likes to eat. A little too, much maybe. We think she may have a little reflux disease, which is fairly common, causing her to be a little whinny and "snack" a lot (which Mary's Milk Inc. just loves) and to spit up often, (lets just say everytime she moves) so we are trying a little rice cereal to try and thicken what is in her stomach to see if that may help with the spitting up. We thought we would post how messy, I mean cute she is while eating. In all honesty, I don't think any of it really got into her tummy, just on the outside of her tummy on her shirt. she had a good time with it though. She is growing, at 4 mo she ways just shy of 16 lbs. I guess we may have to give her my old nick name of the incredible bulk!!!

Happy Trick or Treating.

Our kids had a blast dressing up and going to our ward carnival party. After, we took them trick or treating in our neighborhood. We couldn't believe how much candy they got. Thanks to Grandma Linda we could both go out with our kids while she helped out with candy and Malia.
Apparently our subdivision is the spot to go trick or treating. We will have to remember to buy lots more candy for next year. It was neat to see people come to our door, in Pocatello no one came. This year Bailee was a blushing bride, Braden was Luke Skywalker, and Malia was a butterfly
