Today is the day before thanksgiving WOW this year has went by so unbelievable fast so far. This year it has been raining ALL DAY LONG!!! Whelp that means Jackson must ware his raincoat and boots. Who says you need to stay in and stay warm. When you have rain boots you can splash without getting your socks wet. So He ran and ran and grabbed the umbrella I was using and ran some more. I am rather damp but he sure isn't.
I know I have not blogged all month. It has been beyond busy and we have tried to spend all of our free time doing family things and that doesn't include the computer. We have had a lot of fun though and sometimes just staying at home and not going anywhere means a lot more than having plans. Jackson also had a Thanksgiving feast this year at preschool he sang and danced and the recited Psalms 100. Then they got to eat just like it rally was Thanksgiving Day . Jackson thinks that his Indian head dress is a chicken hat FUNNY stuff. We laughed at him when he says wheres my chicken hat, but as you can tell by the pictures it really does look like a chicken hat when you think of it.
Thanksgiving not only is a great time to spend time with your family and friends but it also give you a lot to thank the Lord for. I am so Thankful this year to have a family that even though there have been a lot of sickness surrounding it and some trials that we all get to spend time together and love each other. The Lord has blessed us with healing this year by showing us that putting our faith in him that nothing what the doctors says miracles can happen. Uncle Steve is literally living proof of that. Also seeing my grandfathers faith build as he is getting sick. He has started coming to church with us and it is just an amazing and great thing to see him each Sunday also to hear what he has got from being there and from the sermon. Being with family is a huge thing this year just to have those family members close by our sides and spending some much needed time together. Plus I know I have not told you this one. On Saturday we are going to have another member. My cousin Steven and his wife are expecting their 4th yeah thats right 4th child. We don't know what Tiff is having but we cant wait to see the little person that is soon to come into the world. There will be 5 great grandchild to run and chase and tickle this Christmas.
I have a lot on my plate it seems even more as things go on. So if don't make it to every little thing. I am soo sorry . I sometimes seem antisocial because of my responsibilities at home. I'm really not I just have a lot to take care of and deal with. Just keep at me and eventually I will be around or drop by my house hehe I am usually here doing something. Welp I am sure I will have a ton more pics starting on Sunday to post this beacuse I know that on Friday and Saturday we are going to be having Thanksgiving again and SHOPPING WOO HOO. So if I dont say it then Happy Thanksgiving to your family from our family ohh and as Jackson would say GOBBLE GOBBLE THANK YOU GOD for all of you!!!

This year Jackson wanted to be Buzz lightyear HE LOVED IT. He quoted lines from the movie and begged the wear the costume a week before hand. He even asked to sleep in the costume the night he actually got to put all the gear on. We first went and visited Tootmom (great-grandmother) Aunt Dot and then to Nana and Papas. After that we went to the church for Super Hero Mystery Night where we got 2 bags full of candy and Jackson bounced in a bounce house for hours. It was a great and we all had lots of fun!

NO I am not totally crazy!!! YES that is 4 kids carving pumpkins!!! YES Thank GOD for friends that stick with me while doing so. So this year we have another pumpkin carving night before Halloween. Not really a planned occasion but it got the job done. Why do I always forget and put it off ummm lets see pumpkin guts and kids usually equals a gross mess of slime for me to clean up. So I wrapped my dining room table in plastic and went for it. James and Dana brough Alex over too so that he could carve his first pumpkin as you can tell by the pictures the ewwwww face had the words ewwww in for sure. Stephanie and Samantha were also over while Jeremy and the girl's mom Melissa were at practice for Sunday we carved 4 pumpkins that turned out pretty good I would have to say. I am the one who usually cutes peices that arnt suppose to be cut out but no accident this year WOO HOO!!!! Jackson once again loved it and wanted a" TRIANGLE" face JACKSON-O-LANTERN!!! Yeah I know what they are really called but he said he wasnt Jack he is Jackson. He also insited on getting the guts out himself. He did a good job this year too. Oh and the good thing about the plastic is you wrap it up all in one swoop and toss it in the trash. Remembering this for next year if it is raining and we cant do it outside.
