On Saturday, Brian and Megan went with Brandon and Kenny to the mountains to get a tree. It has been a tradition for our families to go cut a tree down for the last couple of years. This year we decided that the dads would take Megan and Kenny. Megan was so excited to spend the day with her dad.
Megan and Kenny ready to go There wasn't a whole lot of snow, as you can tell. Probably made it easier for the kids to get around.
Our tree. Brian did an awesome job picking one this year
It wasn't too far off the road.

said they made it to about Horseshoe Bend and then
My poor little Ashlyn has finally cut a tooth. We found it on Sunday and she has been miserable ever since. Her nose is running constantly and she can't breathe. Part of me wonders if it's a cold and a tooth. I think I got about 4 hours of sleep last night. She made noises all through the night because she couldn't breath. I feel so bad for her. She is such a happy baby that it's a little weird to have her so cranky. I think I was lucky with Megan and her teething. I hardly knew when she had a tooth coming in. The only way I knew that she was getting a tooth was because she chewed her tongue nonstop. We'll have to see if she'll let me get a picture in a little while. Right now she shuts her mouth tight every time I try to stick my finger in. She hates the baby orajel.
We had a great Thanksgiving this year and really enjoyed spending time with family. We had my family's at 12:00 and Brian's family at 4:00. Even though there were 2 in one day, it was basically stress free. And for that I was very grateful.
This is my family at my parents house. We only
had 8 adults and my two girls. Pretty low key
but very good food. Especially that Costco
pumpkin pie. Thanks mom!

cool whip. Megan had a plate with just cool whip
for her dessert. She loves the stuff.

pies she was taking to Tom's house.
These last two pictures are Brian's family. We had a total of 23 people. Kind of crazy, but everyone loves to come visit during Thanksgiving. The Montgomerys stayed with us and Megan and Porter thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Each night when we put them to bed we had to threaten that one would have to sleep in the van if they kept talking. I think we ended up going in about 5 times each night. Crazy kids. They need to learn how to whisper so they don't get in trouble next time. I would have taken pictures of them but they were running everywhere.
#11 Usually when I ask Ashlyn what is in mom's tummy she says "baby" but today when I asked her said "doggie". Let's hope not!
#10 The girls are always excited when Brian comes home and the other day when he came in the door Megan said to me "Mom, come see who's home - it's an exciting young man!"
#9 When I asked Megan why she didn't want to wash her hair this time, she said that washing it made her get light bulbs in her blood in her head. Huh?
#8 When I asked Megan why she didn't want to wash her hair she said "my head is lazy and my stomach is saying 'don't wash your hair, don't wash your hair'". Where does she come up with these?
#7 We were in the car the other day and someone said $3000 in there conversation. Megan then proceeded to say "1 call that's all, 2 calls-that's all, 3 calls-that's all, 4 calls-that's all.... I'm sure you get the picture. Made me laugh pretty hard.
