We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at my parents house in St. George. We had our Thanksgiving meal on Saturday and everyone had a job to prepare a food item it turned out yummy. The weekend always goes by to fast but here are some photos I took while there. We hiked around up by the Dixie rock and enjoyed the warm weather. Hiking there is Hunter's favorite thing to do while in St. George, besides playing with cousins.
Our shadows, it was Eric, Hunter, Grandma and Tami. Grandpa got to stay home and play with Cole(thanks Dad)

Hunter showing how strong he is(with a little help from dad)

There are so many holes to climb in(when your hunters size)

Okay I climbed in one too. It brought back memories of my days at Dixie College we would climb down this hole all the time.

Sorry blurry...hunter in the crack

Cole fell asleep in his excerise saucer.
Happy boy in his highchair. Still hasn't eaten much food, not to interested but he enjoys the highchair to play with toys.

He has the best smile.

I love Hunter's eyes, he's making sure Cole is looking at me for the picture.
Cole in all his chunkiness.

Hunter's new name for Cole is Colee olee. It's cute coming from Hunter sweet little voice. So this post is for Cole. It's so show how much he has grown and continues to grow. It's going by way to fast for me.

Urgent Care

We took Cole to Urgent Care last night, he had a fever of 102 and was miserable. I could tell he was fighting an ear infection. The doctor confirmed that I was right his left ear had a bad infection. We gave him the medicine at 8:30 pm and he slept til 7:15 this morning. He woke up happy and is now back in bed for his afternoon nap. I'm glad he is on the mends.

Eating an apple while counting his candy.
Trick or treating with our neighbors the Jensens, in our neighborhood.


At uncle Tyler's fire station's Halloween party. It had a huge jumpy and 2 pinatas. Hunter got to swing at both and hit off the head of Frankenstein, he thought that was AWESOME!!

Climbing up the jumpy

Abby and Hunter pulling silly poses

We had a pretend Halloween at Eric and Jana's house for the kids. Emily and I would hide behind a door in the house and they would have to try and find us and when they did they got a treat. They kept saying"this is SO fun"!!

I love Hunter's arm around Abby. These 3 are best buddies!

Hunter saw a Dora cupcake online and he was set on making cupcakes today. So we did. He cracked all the eggs, stirred all the ingredients, put all the cupcake cups in the pans and assisted with me in putting the batter in each cup. He checked on them every 5 minutes while they were in the oven. He added the coloring to make the orange frosting and was so excited to decorate each cupcake. We did the first one...the"Dora" one and when we finished with her he looked at it and said "it doesn't look like her" and then he was done with the frosting thing...so I finished them up and this is what we have.

St. George

Well we took a road trip up for the holiday weekend to St. George it was lots of fun being with family and enjoying the sites of the city.

Cutie pies

Hunter loves mini golf..he got a hole in one!(St George Temple in background)

I could live there. I love it so much, but I would be husbandless if I did, so I will stay where I'm at... which I'm very happy with, it truly is home for us, but if I had a second choice of where to live it would be St. George. Utah
