On Tuesday we read "Bear Stays Up for Christmas" and did activities centered around that. We love those books and the Christmas one it real cute.
Candy Bomber. Check the full story out on that link. That made the tears spill over because they brought him on stage and he spoke for a moment. I wish we could have gone to a the signing they had at Deseret Book and gotten Alife Boe to sign a cd of his I own, but that was Friday night when Stephen was working. Anyway, Vance took a picture of Stephen and I before we left.
Sickness hit our house Saturday night and continued through Sunday. Not fun. Tanner was the only one to miss out on our fun. Those are the days there isn't much to take a picture of, but kids lying around...
One of Vance's favorite Christmas books is "Snowmen at Christmas". He read it to me today and wrote a letter to his teacher about it.

We have been having fun with Christmas activities the past week. On Tuesday Tanner, Porter and I did gingerbread activities and they decorated gingerbread houses.
On Saturday we were at the Sears that is near my in-laws and it is closing so they have everything in their store discounted. We got shoes for all the boys since they all needed some sort of shoe. Then I saw the angry bird ties and couldn't pass them up so they wore them to church on Sunday.

Stephen's been letting a beard grown. This is a picture of him after a 30 day growth. He has since trimmed it and gotten a hair cut so he isn't nearly has hairy! :)

We had a gratitude tree up this year for Thanksgiving that and the boys each added a leaf a day with someone they were grateful for. Vance and Tanner wrote on their leaves and I helped Porter out with his.Here is what they came up with. In no particular order.

Looking over the pictures for this past week I am realizing that we didn't have an overly exciting week.
Since Vance and Tanner write down the things they are grateful for on their leaves each day Porter was feeling left out so I give him a pencil and a leaf each day for him to "write". Then I go back and write what he said down so we know for the future. He is funny though because he ask, "How do you spell that?" Sometimes he'll even start naming letters.

We have a "Give Thanks" tree and leaves that the boys put up each day of things that they are grateful for. We have done the gratitude leaves for several years now, but this is the first time we have a tree to go with it. I tried to make one and it looked terrible so this tree is one that Stephen made for us.
Porter just looks so sweet when he is asleep.
My little sister turned 20 on Friday and we celebrated with her on Saturday. Here is Vance working on a sign for her on Friday.

I have let myself get behind on blogging. Oops. Here is Tanner reading "The Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything" while Porter put visuals on the flannel board for it.
The boys in their costumes. My mother-in-law was kind enough to sew a bunch of things for us. Here they are at Mandy's house for a Halloween party.
