The boys...Wilson wouldn't keep his gloves on, so Mike tucked his arms down inside his coat so he couldn't really move at all. You'll notice he's still sitting in the stroller being lifted up!

We haven't seen them since Whitney was about 6 months old, so it was really fun to get together. We went out to dinner at Red Robin (one of our old favorites) and then went back to their house for a couple of hours and let the kids play while we all caught up. This was one of my favorite parts of our trip!

Sledding is a lot of work for Daddy! The second time we went, Mike hooked a tie down to the sled and then around his waist to pull the kids up the hill!

We decided to take a weekend trip to Salt Lake the first weekend of December. Our kids did AMAZING in the car. They watched only 1 or 2 movies each way of the 8 hour drive! We only got out once and they pretty much kept themselves entertained in the back!! We drove down on a Thursday and our first stop was the Quilted Bear. I love that store! It is a craft mall and it is so fun to look and see what I could possibly make. I got a few ideas and picked up a couple of little things.
On Friday, we took the kids to the Gateway Children's Museum. They had so much fun when we went to the one in Phoenix that I knew we had to take the opportunity to go again! It was a great place for the kids to run around too! We didn't take too many pictures, but Mike took a lot of video. Whitney LOVED the mini stage and dress up clothes. She twirled all around in the princess dresses only stopping to put on more lip gloss! I think Wilson's favorite thing was all of the little cars they had for the kids to drive. He just moved from one activity to another--definitely busy. I wish we had one of these closer--it would be so great for all of the cold winter days!

Mike loves Halloween, but has just been too busy to get into it the past couple of years, but we got out the boxes of his spooky Halloween things. Our kids are totally freaked out by anything to do with Halloween. Wilson saw some masks in a box across the garage and started crying. It was pretty fun (okay maybe mean, but we got a good laugh) taking them near the Halloween aisle at the stores...Maybe they'll grow out of it...
On Halloween, we had a fun little neighborhood party in the afternoon. That evening we went to our church's Trunk-or-Treat. Whitney did pretty good saying "Trick or Treat"; Wilson, of course, wouldn't say anything, but gladly held out his bag to get the candy. After Trunk-or-Treat we went around to a few houses and then ended the night by stopping by our old neighbors' house for homemade donuts! They were delicious!
