Snow Day!!

It started snowing last night and snowed all day today we had about 6-7 inches of snow and the kids had the day off of school.  It was a good day of just relaxing and playing in the snow.  We even got to try out our snow ball makers and they make some really good snow balls.  The snow is still really dry and with the snow ball maker it compacted the snow really well and made good snow balls.

We're home!!  After having been in OKC for 2 weeks we are home.  On the return trip our flight from Oklaoma city to Denver was late leaving which left us with 30 minutes to catch the flight from Denver to Toronto.  We made the connection, unfortunately our luggage did not.  Fortunately we have most everything here at home we were missing our heavy winter coats, so we stayed inside to stay warm (temperatures were 15 degrees).  The car seats were also missing which was fine as they gave us a car seat for Luke and Reagan used her old one and Maddie was fine with out one for a day. We had a great trip visiting with friends and family.  THANK YOU  to everyone that made it possible.

Texas and Luke's Baptism

What a great weekend!!  This weekend we left OKC and headed down to Texas to visit with friends and have Luke baptized.  Friday we visited with our previous neighbors and  then spent the night with our friends that were the kids surrogate grandparents when we lived in England and Spain.  It was a night of laughs and good conversation.  Saturday we had lunch with Reagan's godparents, who have a pond for fishing, chickens for chasing, dogs and cats to play with and horses feed and try to pet.  For dinner we met up with Luke's godparents and the kids had friends to play with!  Sunday was church and Luke's baptism.  Luke's baptism was a wonderful ceremony.  We were blessed to have friends in attendance as we welcomed Luke into our church family.  After the service friends gathered back at our friend's home for snacks and drinks.  The kids were able to run and play outside while adults talked and caught up.  Thank you to everyone that came to help us celebrate and a HUGE thank you to Thumper for putting so much work into getting things ready!!!

Happy Halloween

This year for Halloween we had a ninja, leopard, witch, Rapunzel, ladybug, and dinosaur.  We walked around the neighborhood and the kids made out like bandits!   They were give a couple of full size candy bars and a gallon zip lock bag of candy each.  That is 5 gallons of candy!!  Plus they were give a lot of the small lunch size bags of chips.  I think those will last the rest of the year.  The kids had a good time and the weather was nice it was not too cold and no rain!

Out and About, Again

Today was another beautiful day and we went for hike.  It was a 3 mile hike (up and down).  We had a good time and pushed the kids pretty hard.  Reagan walked the entire way with no complaining.  At the end she did comment her legs were hurting and she was slowing down, but kept on trucking.  I am impressed at how she keeps up on these hikes without complaining.  We reached the mountain top had a snack and came back down.  Coming down is a lot faster tan going up.

Out and About

We went for a hike this morning.  The weather is still beautiful and we are going to try to take advantage of it before winter sets in.  This was about 10 minutes from the house and part of the East Coast Trail.  Nathan found some moose tracks and the girls built rock statues, there were 2 already started and the girls just added to them.  The Ocean Bay Sciences Center (part of the college) was right there, it is not open right now, but they have 3 harp seals they are researching and you can watch them from the observation deck.  The kids enjoyed watching them swim back and forth.  We even found a few blueberries left to pick and eat.
