Some fun at our city tree lighting ceremony. They had fake snow, hay rides, train rides, live music, and lots of crafts for the children to enjoy.

Ready for Christmas

Yesterday we spent the day getting the Christmas tree decorated and today I put the lights up outside.
Yay! I LOVE Christmas lights...

Josh had his ankle surgery on November 5th and is recovering well. He can't put any weight on it for a few more weeks but the stitches are coming out tomorrow. He has two six inch cuts. One down the front of the ankle and the other along the outside of the ankle.
I just wanted to let everyone know that he's doing well!!!

Just to keep you posted...
Recently Josh hurt his ankle while rock climbing. Just a minor fall but it still hurt. He went to the doctor and apparently he's broken a piece of bone off and now needs surgery. He's scheduled for Wednesday November 5th. I know, I know it's very soon but the doc says it won't heal correctly on its own and right now it's cutting into his cartilage. He'll be home for a couple of weeks and then back to work with a walking boot for about six more weeks. Please think happy thoughts for him! I know he'll do well!

Hay Ride

Hay Pyramid

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch last Sunday. Unfortunately the weather was not quite cooperating. The temperature was great and as you can tell, it looked like a beautiful day...

But, what you can't see in the pictures is the terrible wind! It was really whipping it up. We planned on making an afternoon of the trip but we had to leave after about an hour. We were all wind blown and covered in dirt! The kids were getting runny noses and hay fever but they still loved it.

Hay Maze Finish Line!

The CIRCUS! Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey!!!

We went to the CIRCUS last Sunday afternoon!!! They were at ARCO Arena.
It was wonderful. We had such a great time. My sister and her family joined us and the kids were so excited! Actually I was excited myself! I had NEVER been to the circus before and it was fabulous!
There was on part of the show that I don't think was intended to be "part" of the show. The elephants must have been fed right before and can you guess...
Quite a few "accidents"! Like EVERY single elephant! I don't mean to be gross and normally I wouldn't bring it up but the funny thing is, the kids in the audience thought it was the funniest thing ever and by far it got the most talk
amongst the younger crowd : ) Even Madison said it was one of her favorite parts of the show~Gross
