Decorating the Tree

The girls have wanted to put the Christmas Tree up for weeks and tonight they finally got to do it.  Brook's was more into destroying the tree instead of helping put it together but he still got some ornaments on there.  So begins the Christmas season, it's going to be a very quick one this year because we are going on a cruise the first part of December and after that I am sure it will be busy trying to get everything done.

He liked taking apart the drums not putting them on the Tree

Thanksgiving 2011

It was the Ferran's year for Thanksgiving and to mix it up, I decided to smoke a Turkey.  This wasn't my first one, I tried it a week before, but this one turned out amazing.  It only took a few hours and the end product was very good.  So we spent the morning at home doing that and some crafts with the girls.  Around 1:30 went to the Ferran's and had a great dinner, the nice thing is that we had the traditional Turkey and the smoked.  It was a nice afternoon, we didn't see my parents because they were down in St. George celebrating with Ben and Jason's families.

Halloween 2011

Aly and Gracie were sick today so I took Isabelle and Brook's up to the Grandparents to Trick-Or-Treat while they stayed home.  With them staying home it was the first time that anyone has been home at our house in the 11 years we have lived there.  Aly had to try and scratch up some candy to give it but they were able to find some things.

It was a great night of Trick-or-Treating, Isabelle made sure that Gracie wouldn't be left out and took her bucket to get filled up.  Brook's had a great time going door to door, and he did really good except for the times they would just stick out the bowl of candy and he would try and grab a huge handful.  It was a fun evening even though Gracie and Aly couldn't be with us.
