Still busy, but here's what we're doin'....

Playing catch up again, but oh well. With all our trees in our new house, it makes for alot of raking. Luckily the kids LOVED IT! "I want to do this every year Mom!" Well guess what son, that's exactly what you get to do, until you move out! The appeal is probably the jumping in the big pile, but I'll settle for what I can get!
Garrick jumping in
Aleksia's turn
Trestin is in there somewhere.....

All three, enjoying the leaves in our new house! After we raked and bagged the leaves, we found out that Pullman has a leaf pick up! I thought people where just lazy and raking them to the edge of the road off the side walk! Oh well, we'll know for next year!

25 (little) cinnamon rolls for Garrick's Birthday Treat at school! That's what he wanted last year too, but I convinced him to take cupcakes, but seeing as Mom wasn't nauseated from pregnancy this year I didn't have a good excuse!

The birthday boy! Well Saturday it was, but no school on the weekends!

One happy class to be getting cinnamon rolls. I heard one girl say, "These are better then my Mom's!" So I think they where a success! Garrick's cute teacher, Mrs. Thompson in the back ground who is due in February.

She finally decided that baby food and real food are okay! She liked Garrick's chocolate cake. She is her father's daughter!

Due to craziness at our house, we didn't get around to birthday cake till 3 days after his birthday! He was a good sport!

Garrick at his first b-ball game! He's not just running from one side to the other to stand under the hoop now. He's actually trying to block people and make 3 baskets last game!

So this past week was Disney on Ice, Worlds of Fantasy, up in Spokane. It consisted of Cars, Little Mermaid, Lion King, and Tinkerbell. It's always fun, but the best part is seeing our children's eyes light up, and the pure excitement in their faces gives me goose bumps! Trestin sat beside me, and he was so fun! He would get SOOO excited every time someone new would come out, and YELL, "MOM, LOOK! IT'S ______!" So much fun! So here is Minnie and Mickey.

Goofey trying to help fix Mickey and Minnie's broken car.

Well they couldn't fix the car, so who came to help... Mater! Cars was my favorite part of it. They where REAL cars being driven on the ice by people hidden inside. It was very cool!
The entire Cars crew that showed up. Minus McQueen of course.

Lightening McQueen! Their mouths moved, eyes blinked, and voiced by the actors from the movie!

Next was Ariel. Here they are dancing to Under the Sea!

Timon and Pumba where my favorite on Lion King, and they where cute on ice too! Simba and the lions where kinda whimpy though, not real big, but easier to skate in probably.

Then Tinkerbell. That one was the longest, and probably from one of the Tinkerbell movies (which we haven't seen) when she becomes a Tinker Fairy. It was cute, but wish it was shorter and Cars was longer. Oh well!

Aleksia's Kindergarten Fall Feast was the 19th. They made stone soup, muffins, and pumpkin pie. They made cute little turkey hats and sang the Turkey song:
Gobble gobble went the turkey,wobble wobble went his tail.
Shall we eat him, shall we great him, shall we let him share this meal.
"Please don't eat me," begged the turkey. "I am quite a friend you'll see.
And soon you will discover stone soup tastes better then me!"

The hat

Albuquerque the Turkey outside of her class room.

So Than defended his Masters thesis on the 20th, and PASSED! He was so nervous and stressing out, but he did awesome! Now to just finish his thesis and hand it in by Dec 1st! Here he is working out the kinks before his Power Point presentation. His title of the thesis is:
Catacholamine Innervation of the Ventrolateral Bed Nucleus of the Stria Terminalis: Role in Corticosterone and Feeding Responses to Glucose Deficit
Try saying that 10 times! I can bearly say it once!

Than's sister Sarah, got Cassiah these ADORABLE Robez boots! Even thought they are HUGE on her, they are too cute to NOT have them on her now! So here she is very stylin' ready for church today! And how appropriate since it snowed all day today! Although they aren't very good snow boots!
Cassiah's stylin' boots from Aunt Sarah! Thanks, we (and everyone at church too) LOVES them!
