Nate's Day at the Train Museum

To celebrate Nate's birthday, we all went to the train museum...probably the favorite place of many 2-year old boys. He was so excited. He just kept saying, "Look at that train!" Of course the Thomas play tables were the biggest'd think we didn't have one at home!

It was a perfect outing to go along with getting his new Geotrax set for his birthday!

Grandma's Birthday Weekend

Back in October, we had a great weekend with Grandma and Grandpa for Grandma's birthday. They came over on Friday for a birthday dinner at Claim Jumper and then came to Brandon's baseball game. Saturday morning we went to Zach's soccer game and then played a raucous game of haunted mini golf. Thanks for a great weekend!

Brandon's Fall Ball Season

I didn't get any great pictures of Brandon playing baseball this fall. The light is kind of weird and the fence gets in the way. But for posterity's sake: He played on the "Hooks" in the Farm Divison (half coach pitch, half machine pitch). At the end of the year banquet his coach commented on what a consistent batter he is. He got a hit every time he was up, most of the boys couldn't say that. Great job Buddy!

The End of Soccer Season

Zach just finished his first season of soccer. His team was the Dolphins and he had a lot of fun. He got to play with 2 of his friends from church, Tanner and Rebekah, and have his Dad coach his team. His favorite position was defender where he did a great job either kicking the ball back the other way or forcing the dribbler to go out of bounds...he was particularly adept at that one. They had a hard time getting around him! He also played offense sometimes and scored a goal! He's excited that next season he'll be the oldest/biggest kid on his team since his birthday falls just on the other side of the deadline to move up divisions. Congrats on a great season buddy! And he is the one with the ball in the photos :)

Zach's Thanksgiving Program and Feast

All the Kindergarten classes at Junction put on the cutest Thanksgiving program yesterday. They dressed up as Pilgrims, Indians, or Turkeys and sang some really cute songs. My personal favorite was "I'm a Little is my knife and here is my gun. When I go out hunting here me shout, deer and turkey better watch out!" And here I thought we lived in California, the land of political correctness. It was pretty fun to watch all their songs.

After the show, we all headed to the classrooms for a feast. They actually said a blessing. My favorite part of that was, "Thank you ecosystem for growing this food...". They went on to thank their parents for preparing it and their friends for being there. It was a nice day to hang out with my little Indian.

Happy Birthday Nate!

Nate is 2 years old today! I'm really sad that I don't have any more babies. We love Nate so much and his personality adds so much to our family. Here are our 2 favorite things about Nate:

1. This kid is so confident. He is absolutely sure he can do ANYTHING his big brothers can do. We've seen him try to shoot baskets on a 10-ft rim and get really mad at the height requirements on amusement park rides.

2. Nate is also very loving. He runs up and gives you hugs just because he sees you.

Happy Birthday Buddy! We love you so much!
