Thanksgiving in Utah

It was wonderful to be able to spend Thanksgiving in Utah this year. Seth and I haven't had Thanksgiving at home in about 4 years or so. We had so much fun and the kids loved playing with all their aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. I apologize in advance for not getting any pictures of the Bryant side. But rest assured we had a wonderful time with them! Lots of pictures will be taken next time we are out! And yes that is a promise!

First off, we got to go to Lexi's baptism and birthday! The kids got to play together that day.

Cute Abbie Joy Joy!

All the boys downstairs playing MarioKart.

Lexi was such a good sport in letting Bekah pull her all around!

It was nice of Utah to send us some snow while we were there.

The Three Stooges.

It snowed again one more time!

Linc just likes to throw snowballs at people.

Linc and Maggie.

Thanksgiving at Papa and Amma's house.

Lincoln and Brynn.

There are those crazy Three Stooges again!

And of course we had to get a picture of the new babies. Here is Creighton.

And here is Kynnlie. Cutest little babies!

Thanksgiving at Grandma Joyce's house.

It was a great time and the kids didn't want to leave Utah. But we shall visit again and make more good memories!

In the meantime, in Tennessee, we had Seth's 30th, yes people, 30th birthday!!

He was able to blow out all the candles despite his old age!!

We love you Seth/Daddy, you are the best of them all, Happy Birthday!

Fall Fever

My favorite time of the year in Nashville is definitely the fall. The colors of the leaves are incredible! And the weather is just perfect. Here is what we have been up to this fall so far.

The kids colored their pumpkins in anticipation of the day we will cut them.

Bekah is a purple dragon for Halloween and Linc is Spider-man! They like to swing in their swings and pretend they are flying through the air with wings or spider webs.

I raked the leaves in front of their slide so they could fall in them.

Seth and I built and all-naturale (except for the tarp of course) doghouse for Maggie. Even when she is getting soaking wet from the rain, she still won't go in there! Oh well.

Last Friday we took the kids on a hike at Percy Werner Park. Perfect day for it. Notice Lincoln putting his hands out, he does this most of the time while hiking because he is the leader and he doesn't want Bekah or I to pass him!!


Bekah's walking stick. Always has to have one hiking. Kind of reminds me of you Papa John!

Lincoln's Log!

Bekah took this picture!

The next day we went to the Buddy Walk for Nashville's Down Syndrome Association. They both got medals for finishing it!

Oktober Fest

Last weekend was Oktober Fest in Nashville's own Germantown Historic District. Didn't even know there was one until now! It was a lot of fun especially as it was all free! They had a lot of fun stuff for the kids, like this huge blow up slide.

It was quite the climb.

Once Linc made it to the top, he was too scared to slide down. Finally some girls coaxed him down.

He wanted to go again but this time with Daddy.

They even had pony rides there, and for free! Sure beats paying, like at the fair!

Then they got to color their own puzzles.

Lincoln is getting better at taking pictures.

This is Bekah's attempt at taking a picture.

A beautiful Catholic church there in Germantown.

They had a ton of these blow-up things for the kids.

I can't remember the last time Bekah took a nap! We must really have worn her out to have her fall asleep so quickly and in such an awkward position!

Oktober Fest was awesome and definitely a keeper for next year!
