Thanksgiving at the Llyod's home

This year the whole family got together and celebrated Thanksgiving at Tom and Cheryl's home in Valley Springs. They made a beautiful spread for dinner and it was delicious. All the kids had a great time getting together and playing. We all had a great time and made wonderful memories.
Thanks again Cheryl and Tom for another memorable Thanksgiving!!

Lexi's Thanksgiving Feast

Last week Lexi's class celebrated Thanksgiving with a wonderful potluck lunch. Everyone brought something yummy to share. They had fun telling the class what they were thankful for. Lexi said she was thankful for the trees....oh so sweet she is!! The class had fun bobbing for apples and pinning the hat on the turkey. Gavin also thinks he's is apart of Lexi's innocent he is!! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Secret Sister Gift

Every month I give my Secret Sister, which is always another wife who is married to a Highway Patrolmen, a gift. Usually I just find something off the Internet and have it shipped to her, but this month my MIL inspired me to make her a wreath. So Lexi and I had a great time making my SS this beautiful Christmas wreath for her. I hope she likes it as much as we do.

Gavin thinks he's a big boy

The last few days Gavin feels like he's too big for naps these days, but clearly he's not. On the days he doesn't nap this is where we find him after dinner....sleeping!! Thankfully I don't let him skip naps much!! 6:00 is just a little too early for bedtime!!

Night Night Big Boy

On Monday we thought it was time to transform Gavin's crib into a toddler bed. So that's exactly what we did and boy was he thrilled. After Chris was done with it, Gavin jumped right it in and laid right down! Well Gavin we cannot believe how fast you are growing up, and you make us proud each and everyday!! We love you G!!

Trick or Treat

On Halloween we took the kids to the Mall to go Trick or Treating around to all the stores. It was a little disappointing since only about 35% of the stores were open and the mall still smelled like smoke. After the mall, we walked around the neighborhood and the kids collected even more candy. Thankfully we went through it all and send most of it to work with Chris.
Happy Halloween!!

This was the best costume at the Mall!!
