The Last 4 Months

We have been busy the past 4 months.  Christopher has been working around the clock to get through his second semester of his MBA program, and the kids and I have tried to stay busy enough that we didn't notice!

 James' first attempt at sitting on Santa's lap!

 Our Sarah turned 3!!!

 Avery had her first ever season of soccer!

Happy First Birthday James!!!!

 My baby turned 1 on November 10th!  It was a pretty busy day, but we managed to find time to celebrate!!
 He actually got really into his presents and loved ripping the wrapping paper off.  He caught on real quick that there were toys in the presents!  He did a great job opening them which made his sisters sad that their help was not needed.

 He didn't quite know what to do with his cake.  He just looked at it for a bit and then played in it for awhile.  
 Finally he took a bit!
 And he even fed some to me!
 He was a very happy boy by the end of the day!
 And so were his sisters!

Off to the bath...


We got to dress up a lot this Halloween!  
 We were invited to a costume party!  Avery was a ballerina and Sarah went as Snow White!

 Avery had her fall festival at school and she dressed up as a pink princess!  
 She got a yellow heart with orange dots painted on her hand.
 James went as Tigger to our ward trunk or treat!  

 They had really cute activities for the kids to do.  They played pin the eye on the monster and color a jack-o-lantern face on a tangerine!

 This is Sarah's twin, May.  
 We had to carve our pumpkins after Halloween this year because of Christopher's crazy school schedule, but the kids still had fun!

This is Avery's best scary face!

Athens Corn Maze

 Yesterday we went to the Athens' Corn Maze.  It was a lot of fun!  We took a family picture in front of the sign and of course a nice statue of a bulldog had to be included.  Only in Athens!
 There was a petting farm with bunnies, pigs, chickens, goats, cows and horses.  
 The pig took a liking to James
 Avery enjoyed feeding the bunny grass.  

 The best part of the farm was their corn box.  It is just like a sand box, but with corn.  Sarah and Avery loved it and James hated it.  We buried Avery and Sarah took a corn shower.

 We also went on a fun hayride.  We finished the day walking through the corn maze and didn't get lost once!
