November 2014

Evening picnic next to the temple. Life is good. :)

Lexi-Daddy date

We celebrated Guy Fox day this year. If you don't know what that is, neither did I (you can learn more about him on-line). It was fun to meet some new to me English peeps. They were such kind people and threw a fun Guy Fox party.

Putting together last year's 90% off gingerbread houses. Haha! Happens every year around here.

Kenzie says the stuff is still good after a year.
First snowfall is always magical

I ran my first organized 5k at the CSI Turkey Trot (I've been running 2 to 5 miles multiple times a week for a year and half). 

We joined a family for Thanksgiving. They had so many people they had to move it to the church. It was lots of fun and the food was delish!
Music class
Donuts for FHE

Lexi missed her recital but participated in the dress rehearsal. She LOVES dance class!

Corn maze and visitors

Grandma and Grandpa came for my birthday this year with Brock and Addy. We did the superhero run, saw the falls, played, and talked. For the record, I am wiser and not older.

Could life get anymore fun? Don't think so!

Pumpkin farm

Dierke's Lake hike

 We've learned recently that we love to hike as a family. The kids love it and the older two are old enough to do the walking all on their own.  This is one of our favorite hikes in the area. It's a two mile hike around Dierkes Lake. I think it's beautiful. Thayne thinks it's nice in a dreary wilderness sort of way. :)

Jump shot

Dad's turn



and again.... I'm really bad at capturing an air shot

Tyson can usually be found way up ahead or off climbing on the rocks. 
When we get home, we crash and read a good book. Perfect ending.
