our thanksgiving holiday started the night before at our friends house. we had a pie pig out with a few families. between the five of us with kids, there were 13 boys!! kinda crazy, but a lot of fun.

avery, booker, tate, landon, ridge, chance, blake, gabe
here are a few of the bigger boys.
can you believe i got them all on the couch at one time!!
we had thanksgiving day at the church with a few other friends. it was definitely sad being away from home, but it was nice to be with so many friends. this year i am especially thankful for the friendships that we have. we have been blessed to have met so many great people here in ohio. here are a few of the pics from our thanksgiving day.

Chef BOYardee

This is Tate making dinner for us the other night. It was sooo yummy. He really needed a "Bakers Hat" while he was preparing the Pizza, so I improvised with paper towells and a chip clip. Hey whatever works... he was happy, and so was I. I didn't have to cook (well kind of).

The Finished Product

Grandma and Grandpa came to visit this past week and we had so much fun.

Tate taught them how to play the Wii.

Grandpa got so good he could talk on the phone while he was golfing!!
They had lots of wrestling matches...and Tate mostly won.

Grandma and Bos Poor Dallin missed out on most of the fun.
We watched the Red Sox win the World Series.

We spent one of our days at Kirtland.

My Dad kept himself busy with a few home improvement projects.
He wired a few light switches and fixtures in the unfinished part of our basement.
Look out Electricians,
Here I Come!!!
Thanks Dad, We Love You!!

Thanks for the fun time. We loved having you here!!

a monkey and his banana

We just love Halloween, and we had a blast trick or treating.
Boston is a little squished in his costume

This is Tates friend Rusty (or spot as he likes to call him)
He was a Hot Dog.

Admiring the hard work.
Apparently one sucker wasn't enough!
