Family Pictures

A couple of weeks ago, we had family pictures made.  I was super excited to see how they turned out and even more impressed with what we got.  Here are some of the ones we got that were OUR FAVORITES.
 Ashton wanted this shot next to the tractor tire at the farm we were at.  I actually thought it would turn out silly looking but I liked it.  ;)

I know... that is gross, but I love this picture!

We have a sassy little girl on our hands!

I love these two people more than I could ever imagined I would before having them!


So sweet.  They love each other, whether they will admit it or not.


We had to have some hockey pictures.  ;)

 Silly but cute!

Daddy's girl, for sure.

Halloween 2012

Just let we've done for the last several years, we had friends over for some chili and then headed out trick or treating with the kids.  We had a mainly super hero crew this year and they had a great time despite the cool temperatures!

Happy Birthday Ashton

Ashton is the big EIGHT years old!  I still can't believe we have a son that is eight years old.  It's crazy!  Alex was out of town for work on Ashton's birthday, so Maddie and I tried to make his morning extra special.  We started with this as he came out of the bedroom before school.

 He thought it was pretty funny!
Then we sang to him and had him blow out a candle in his big star donut for breakfast.  Maddie wanted to use a zebra candle even though she knew Ashton wouldn't like it.  ;)  I don't think Ashton even noticed.
Friday night, we went to the neighborhood hayride and bonfire because that is what Ashton wanted to do to make time go faster in anticipation for Dad to get home.  They really missed him a LOT!
Saturday, we took Ashton and four of his friends to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate.  The boys had a great time and Ashton really enjoyed it!
 I'm not sure where Grayson was when we took this picture.  :(
