Mckenna is officially walking

Today is Sunday November 27th, 2011, and Mckennai s officially walking. She started standing alone about a week ago, and she's been walking across furniture for awhile now. We actually bought her a little walking thing for her birthday and she's used it a few times. Shes taken a few steps tho this past week, and tonight she officially has it down! She is still apart of me, which means she took over my stubburn gene. This makes it tough for me to get it on video to post for everyone to see. I will keep trying tho and hopefully she will let me show off her new skill! :) She's a doll and you should have seen her face the first time she did it and I congratulated her. It was priceless with these big blue eyes and huge smile. Might I mention that her two top teeth are halfway in looked so funny! :) Anyways, hopefully you guys can all see her walking soon! It sure is a cute sight!

Thanksgiving Day 2011

Today for Thanksgiving, our family went to Veralyn Bradshaws church and we celebrated with the Erickson family! It was so great to see Grandma and Grandpa Erickson doing so well...and to see all of our aunts and all of Landons cousins! :) He had a good time playing  with Chase Fulmer, who is Denise's sisters little boy! He and Landon look a lot alike to me! It's neat! Mckenna only took like a 10 minute nap all day so lets hope she sleeps well tonight. Evan and Ann came, and Corey and his lady Sydney, and Braden and Kent and Denise. Brain and Lauren weren't able to come tho because Lauren's due to be a mommy again in about 2 weeks! We can't wait to hear about when they have their little girl!
The kids played basketball in the church and they colored us adults tons of pictures. We at a bunch of turkey and had tons of pies. Chris and I made a cheesecake pie for the occasion! Attached are some pics of our Thanksgiving Day!

Today I have done some major cleaning. I wont have Rayden for the week, and becasue its a Holiday, I figure..why not clean cause we'll probably have some people visiting! Emily went to Saint George for the weekend, and Chris, me and the kids are spending family time with the Ericksons who are Chris' moms' family. It should be a good time! I can't wait for Thanksgiving Dinner! I am so very thankful for my family and friends who have been there for us throughout all of the years. Marriage life couldn't be better. I really do have the best husband out there! And I think he helps make some cute kids too! haha
I also am thankful for my great kids and for everything that Chris does for us! :) I love being married to my husband and life couldn't be better!

Some pictures from October-November

I haven't been able to take ANY pics off of my camera...but Chris and I bought a new laptop last night and so we were FINALLY able to put some pics on it and erase them from our camera which now makes room for more pictures. :) I am so happy cause I haven't been able to take pics of the kids. My camera was already full of pics from the kids birthdays! So...anyways, we are back in action with pics. I will hopefully post some pictures weekly of the kids. It's soooooooo nice to have a computer back in the house! Dad and Grandma and Granda Astle, we love you and hope you now will want to look at our blog again! We miss you guys! Enjoy some new pics of the kids!
 Landon was painting me a picture and he looked so cute that I HAD to take a picture!
 "See, look what I did mome?"
 Ohh goodness, it's Landon's 4th Birthday!
 Blowing out his candles on his Transformer Cake!
 Okay, so we had 24 kids show up for Landons 4th birthday. He felt so special, and holy cow, he got a lot of presents! It was great!
 I won a personalized cake at Maceys the day before Landons 4th birthday so i let him have his own cake! It was really good too! :)
 So I barely had any room on my camera since we haven't been able to take the pics off to put on a I was only able to take ONE pic of Kenna for Halloween. Landon didnt' want a picture so Chris took this pic of me and Mckenna. She was a "WARM" puppy!
 This is a photo of Landons Transformer cake that I got from Maceys!
