Snow Clothes

We are gearing up for Thanksgiving in Sunriver (our annual tradition). We were trying to figure out what we have and what we need to go sledding, and snowshoeing with the kids. Whitney is excited....really. We are excited because these snow boots have now made it through 3 kids. We are going to go over the hot pink (which you can see in the picture) with a black sharpe when Whitney grows out of them so that they will actually go through 4 kids. Yippie. And if you were wondering those are the hardwood floors Whitney is standing on. Although unfinished the entire downstairs (well except for the kitchen and entry which we still can't decide what we are doing with) now have barnwood floors. We still don't have furniture in the downstairs (its been 8 weeks) but I am hopeful to have it back in before the Christmas dinner I am hosting on Dec. 6th (no pressure Rob) (really no pressure).

This is a picture of Crew from this past August. We were at a "Dude Ranch" in Virginia for a McFarlane family reunion. Isn't he so cute! I put it on my computer today as my backdrop and everytime I see it, it makes me smile. He is a happy little guy.

Veteran's Day

For the long weekend I took the kids up to Albany to stay at my sisters house and then to the Veteran's day parade to watch Jordan (their cousin) in his middle school band. It was a really nice day and we went for a walk along the river afterwards.

Fall Leaves

We decided it was time to rake the leaves. We of course made big piles to jump into. It was so much fun. Whitney however, wasn't so excited to take a picture of course so she hid in blueberry. Crew on the other hand loved laying in the leaves. He really wanted to eat them, but we just let him roll around in them for a while. Happy fall!!!

Beef Jerky

We caught Whitney eating this huge, like as big as her head huge, piece of beef jerky. At least she is getting her weekly serving of protein taken care of in one sitting.

I'm having fun!

OK so Whitney stayed a little bit sour through the pumpkin patch field trip until we bought doughnuts. It was extremely muddy from a week of heavy rain. So we literally had two inches of mud stuck to the bottom of our boots. It is still stuck to the floor mats in "blueberry". Back to the doughtnuts however, we went to Lee's doughnuts. Seriously the best doughnuts I may have ever had. It was a proud day for me to only 4 out of the dozen I bought. I shared with Rob, Whitney had one, then I gave the rest to Cheer. She probably thinks it was me saying thanks for watching Crew for me, however, it was really so I wouldn't eat the rest of the box. Which of course I would have.

Baby Crew

So some of you may not have seen Crew before. He is absolutely amazing. Since I am just getting around to posting photos I am putting this one from last February on. He is 3 months old and already sooooo handsome. This is his Oh I am so satisfied look. The diaper is obviously clean, he is obviously well fed (from the size of his cheeks), and life is good.
