Thanksgiving Pictures

We had a very busy, but fun Thanksgiving! As always, Bill & I cooked Thanksgiving lunch for his side of the family...then we headed to Grandma Betty's for supper. These are just pictures from the Uncapher Thanksgiving because of course, I didn't take my camera down to Bill & Nancy's

I thought this was a neat picture because I got my mom and her 3 brothers all in the same picture - plus my dad & Nikki

Canon & Luke
Bill, Trey & Noah
Now, the following 2 pictures have a funny story. Nikki and I were trying to take a self portrait picture of ourselves...we took the first one, and decided to try again since it was off center....

Here's what we saw after we took the picture the 2nd time!! That Nathan!! We got a good laugh out of it anyway!!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving day!

I Am Thankful For....

I was tagged awhile back to do this, listing 26 things I'm thankful for - using the alphabet. I decided to wait until a little closer to Thanksgiving, and it's almost here! So here goes:

A Animals - for food, drink, companionship

B Bill Evans - He's such a great daddy & husband. I love you bunches!

C Cereal - I think I could live on it

D Dad - someone I've always looked up to

E Electricity

F Friends, and I have such great ones!

G God - There would be nothing to be thankful for without him

H Holidays - getting together with the people you care about most

I Iced Tea - one of my favorites

J Job - I'm thankful that I have one

K Knowledge

L Laughter - It's addictive, puts a smile on my face, and always makes me feel better

M Mom - who taught me so many things over the years

N Nick Evans - my wild & crazy 3 yr old!

O Old Stories - Even if they're only a couple weeks old!

P Pictures - my blog would be so boring without them!

Q Quirks - I like that everyone has them - life would be so dull if everyone was the same

R Rules - without them, it would be chaos

S Seasons - I love that we can experience all 4 seasons right here where we live.

T Trey Evans - my sweet little 5 yr old

U Umbrellas on a rainy day

V Van Wert - I truly like living here. My friends and family are here, and life would be tough
without them!

W Washer (& Dryer)

X Xtra butter on your popcorn (I know, I'm stretching here...)

Y Yukon - Things would be a lot more challenging if I couldn't drive anywhere!

Z zzz's - sleeping, and being well-rested is a great feeling

It's harder than it looks...I could list hundreds of things I'm thankful for, but the alphabet thing makes it tough!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Enjoy your families, eat lots of food, watch lots of football, and don't forget to stop and think about all you have to be thankful for!

Gingerbread Junction

We took the boys up to the YWCA to make gingerbread houses this afternoon. This was the first year for us, and Grandma Cathy even came to join the fun!

Trey was very particular about his house. He kept going to the front table to check out the "sample houses" to see how he should decorate his.Nick's was just a free-for-all of candy and frosting!!
Nick's putting frosting on his house, but I'm betting he's looking to see which piece of candy to eat next!!

A *sweet* kiss for Grandma Cathy!!

Santa was even there! Trey wasn't so sure of him at first, then finally warmed up to him and sat on his lap...I think his little brother Nick (obviously not afraid, as you can see from the 3 inches between his face and Santa's!!) talked him into it!
What a fun day!

Finally Fall!

The boys have been waiting for at least a month to rake a leaf pile to play in...well we finally did it! They had a lot of fun with it!
Most of my time was spent saying "Ready, set, GO!" and then they would take off running and dive in.

Halloween Fun!

The boys were really pumped to go Trick or Treating on Saturday! They got TONS of candy!
Trey picked Bumblebee the Transformer this year (not a surprise at all!) and Nick picked Raphael the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

I love this pose!

We stopped down at Grandpa Bill & Grandma Nancy's before we headed into town
We parked at Grandpa Jim & Grandma Cathy's for more treats, and then we were off through town!
And here's the loot! I think I'm equally excited about it! :)
