Birthdays, Holidays, and Homecomings

I guess I'll start with what came first. Ethan turned one last month! I can't believe he is already a year old! For his birthday we did cupcakes with hot dogs on them. ( the hot dogs were made of circus peanuts and caramels...not real hot dogs.) They turned out really fun. Ethan is such a sweet boy. He's toddling around the house now, and never wants to stop. Now that he can walk, he thinks he has to do it all the time! He loves to play with the boys and climb on everything. We are so glad he is in our family.

Thanksgiving also came and went. We made turkeys out of apples and marshmallows, the boys loved them. They also loved to eat them. We got to go to My mom's family for Thanksgiving day. It was a long trip down to Provo, but it was so nice. We also were able to go to our friends Eric and Leah's baby blessing while we were down. It was so nice to visit with them and see sweet baby Dane.

Last but not least my sweet little brother Adam just got home from his mission to Hawaii on Friday. It was so great to see him! My favorite part was that all the missionaries from Hawaii came home with a ton of lais? around their necks, and as he gave each of us a hug he gave us each a lai. It was so sweet! I love it when they first come home because of the sweet spirits they bring with them.

Christmas is just around the corner, so hopefully another post will follow soon.
