1. Shawn LOVES the snow. He was SO excited to wake up to snow the other day and I will be surprised if we get that good of a reaction on Christmas morning. Too bad I don't join in his enthusiasm for snow. I support him and watch his activities from the comfort and warmth of the house.
Dressing up his little snowman. The first of many, I am sure.
2. For FHE we copied my cousins idea and made a Thankful Tree. We wrote things we are thankful for on each leaf.
Two of the things Shawn was grateful for
3. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE where we live (minus the snow). We have such an amazing neighborhood and we love everything about where we ended up. Including the views....

and the front yard
4. My birthday was last week and it was fabulous. It started about a week before my birthday when we celebrated November birthdays with my family. On my birthday I went to lunch with the girls in my family (plus cousin Garret who filled in for Jenae since she was busy having a baby). That night I played Bunco with the ladies in my neighborhood and came home to presents from Jon and Shawn. On Saturday Jon's mom was nice enough to come to our house and watch the boys in the late evening. Evan still won't take a bottle so usually we can't be gone more than 2 hours, but he was in bed before we left so we could be gone longer. Anyway, we went to Comedy Sports in Provo. Sunday night Jon's family invited us over for dinner and they had Cream Soda and an Cold Stone icecream cake for me.....my favorites! And last but not least, my dear friend Jen took me to lunch and to a delectable cupcake place to celebrate. I have been very very spoiled this year. Thanks everyone!
This is us at lunch on my birthday. The only picture I took of birthday happenings.
