So this picture will go in the memory book for 2 reasons. 1st of all it is so dang cute of Ridge in his Power Ranger costume, the kids loves to dress up! But 2nd of all it is the last picture we have of his beloved blanket. About 3 weeks ago he lost his blanket at the church while I was playing Volleyball and we have never been able to find it. He has actually done really well without it but it just makes me so sad that he is now big enough to not need one. I can't believe that he is 3 and turning into a little man!

So I just got my hands on this picture but it was too cute to not post. Last November Justin and Hunter went out to North Carolina and went to a Panthers and Lions football game. Justin's brother Travis did his residency in Michigan and so they are a little sided to the horrible Lions. They had such a great man trip and Hunter loved all the play time with his cousins. They want to start making a tradition of it and maybe the Lions will actually win one of these times!

I can't believe that our little chub turned 3 on the 10th! He had a great party with most of the family and his one little buddy Landon. He has talked about his birthday for months and all he said that he wanted was a Scooby Doo cake. I normally make the kids cakes and love the chance to be creative but he talked about the cake from the store for months so I gave in and got this little round one from Target and then made a Kahlua Chocolate one for everyone else. We gave him a scooter that he just loves and as usual he was spoiled with too much!
Our sweet Ridge truely is a delight to parent. He is our snuggly, cuddly and lovable child. He has more funny sayings than any child I have ever seen and so much personality! He was the baby of my dreams! I also wanted a chubby, round child and the Lord blessed me with my 9lb joy! I love everyday of being his mom and love even better that he says daily "mom your number 1!"

These are pictures of the kids at Hunter's Halloween party. It was so fun this year to be in charge of the all of the games for the whole 1st grade. I used to love it when my mom helped for parties and I am glad that I get to do it now!
I am sorry but she is the cutest freaking Tinkerbell!
Ridge and cousin Jackson were both the same thing without any planning!
Dragon, Tinkerbell & Ninja

I know most of you have heard it but we have to remind you that we truely live in the best place EVER! We have great neighbors, amazing friends, high caliber schools and the best ward. One thing we love the most about our ward is that we are all very service oriented. It is not uncommon to have a major service project going on monthly. We all help one another LDS or not! Weather it is cutting logs for heat for winter, remodeling a bathroom for a wheelchair bound member, cleaning house and watching kids for a family with a child in the hospital, remodeling a home for and elderly family the list goes on and on. Justin is 1st counselor in the Elder's Quorum and so he is privileged to plan and find a great deal of these service projects. Hunter has helped with dozen's of projects sometimes willingly and sometimes not.
We are blessed to have Hunter's teacher live right at the end of our street. Our prayers were truly answered when he got Mrs. Anderson for 1st grade. Mrs. Anderson's sister Mrs. Cook was Justin's 1st grade teacher and she was his most memorable teacher! Well when Mrs. Anderson needed a new roof the ward and neighborhood was right there to help. So on Halloween Justin and Hunter went down and worked almost 10 hours with alot of others and was able to rip off her old roof and put a new one one. Hunter worked the ENTIRE time. He came home dirtier than I have ever seen him and he loved every minute of it. If I do anything right raising children it will be to teach them the act of service and to do it often.
