November Adventures

November Adventures

We had a lot of great times in November! Check them out below.

Alex lost his top tooth on November 3rd. Look at that smile!

We went to a Bowling Birthday Party for our friend Jake on November 4th! 
We all had such a nice time!

Evan is always such a huge help to Alex when we go bowling
 Alex lost his second top tooth in the same weekend and now all he wants for Christmas is his two front teeth! Look how cute that smile is!

The boys didn't have school on November 7th, so we met up with their classmate Anthony and his brothers Issac and Damien at the mall for lunch. Then went to see the Lego Ninjago movie! It was a fun filled afternoon!

Due to a "Police Situation" in the township where we live, school was cancelled on the 15th of November. I didn't want to stay holed up in the house all day, so we ventured north to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth to pick out our Christmas ornaments. It is a tradition that we do every year. Evan picked a silver disco ball and Alex picked a red round glass ornament with Santa's face on it.

Evan couldn't wait to put the tree up and get his new ornament on!

November 18th, we visited Santa at Bass Pro Shops and spent the afternoon at Legoland

 November 19th was Blake and Casey's birthday party - also at a bowling party! 
We had a blast!

Casey was super excited for his cupcake and dug right in!

 Thanksgiving - Matthew and Samantha came up from Georgia to visit!!

Alex and Evan LOVE their cousins
 Eric turned 37 on November 25th!!! I somehow only got pictures of the cake. We celebrated by going out to dinner and had cake and presents too!

 December is going to be busy with Christmas Activities!! Can't wait to share them with you next month. Thanks for following along.

October Adventures

October is always a fun month for us as a family. There are always lots of fun fall activites that we like to partake in. This year seemed different. It may have been the unseasonably warm weather early on in the month, but here's what we managed to squeeze in!

October 8 - EuroPeds Family Fun Day

We attended the EuroPeds Family Fun day at Oakland Yard in Waterford like we always do. They have music, food, prizes, games and lots of fun for the kids. I only managed to get these pics! Guess we were having too much fun??? Evan found a bunch of kids to play soccer with and Alex would roll the utility ball to Eric and he would kick it real hard into the net and Alex thought that was the funniest thing!

October 8 - Painted Pumpkins

After the EuroPeds Event, we came home and painted pumpkins!

October 12 - Candid Shots

October 13 - Eric and I celebrated our 11th Anniversary.

October 14 - Flint Farmers Market with Friends
We were supposed to go to the Fantasy Forest in Lapeer, but it poured rain that day so we let the kids dress up and did a smaller halloween event at the Flint Farmers Market. They got to see eachother and that's all that mattered!

October 22 - Pumpkin Picking and Trunk or Treat

October 26 - Dinner and Playtime at the Mall

We finally got to see Rachel, Lauren and Nathan after about 6 weeks! The kids had a good time playing at the mall together for a couple of hours!!

October 29 - Pumpkin Carving

For the first time since we started carving pumpkins with the boys, Alex was really into it this year! I was so happy to see him reach in and pull the slimy seeds out and put them in the bowl. He kept touching and looking at his pumpkin! It was awesome! Evan designed his Jack o Lantern's face ahead of time and did a great job cleaning his pumpkin out! We had a great time!

October 31 - School Party and Trick or Treating!

The boys only had a half day of school on Halloween, so their parade and party were in the morning. I didn't get many pictures of the parade because it was held indoors due to the cold temps and snow! The party was a lot of fun! Sapphire and Kingston came over to trick or treat with Alex and Evan and they LOVED it! They all had a great time and got a ton of candy!!
