 Quinton has been in a few programs lately. First was the Primary Program at church. He was super excited to go on stage and talk in the microphone. He had his little part memorized for weeks(I can follow the prophet by saying my prayers). He did so good and I was so proud of my little boy!! The Sunbeams also sang a little song. He didn't know the songs all that well but when a part he did know came up he really belted it:) His Grandma and Grandpa Garner, Aunt Madi, Uncle Logan, and Grandma and Grandpa Kelley all came to watch him. He thought he was so cool with all his family there watching him. We sure do love our little Sunbeam!! Definitely a proud mommy moment!

Last week Q had a Thanksgiving program at his preschool. He looked so cute up there with all those adorable kiddos. 
 Quinton's turn to tell everyone what he is thankful for.

He said he is thankful for hot dogs and mom and dad. On his next turn up he said he was thankful for his friends. 
Good job Q!! We are so thankful for YOU!

All Time Low

 Bran and I went to Boise at the end of October to go to the All Time Low, Hit the Lights, and Summer Set concert with Branden's brother Nate and his wife Heather. We had so much FUN!! The concert was at a cool little venue where we got to sit and eat while watching the concert. Perfect for us older folks who don't want to be in the middle of mosh pits and crowd surfing:)  Thanks to Jenn and Jared for watching our kiddos that night. You guys are awesome! Cheers to date nights!

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping, chasing kids around, eating out, and hanging out with family. Thanks for an awesome weekend Nate and Heather. Lets do it again soon!!

Halloween Activities

 Boo at the Zoo with cousins

 Liam was satisfied as long as he had a sucker in his mouth.

 This kid loves animals!!

Q had to go say hi to the giraffe.
 We got to go to trick or treating at Melaleuca with my cousin. Super fun!! Thanks Shay!
 Our group

 Liam aka Batman. Q helped picked out Liam's costume and of course Liam ended up being a superhero:) 
 Q aka Spider man. Real shocker, I know!
 Halloween night was beautiful. We went to our ward truck or treat and then around to see grandparents. By the time we got back home it was kinda late so we were only able to go to one of our neighbors before we  had to call it a night. Q was not ready to be done.

 Trick of Treat...
 Grandma and Papa Kelley

 Q got way too much candy!! One happy boy!

Pumpkin Patch

 I took the kids to the pumpkin patch a couple days before Halloween.We went during the day while Bran was at work. The pumpkin patch was just not as fun without an extra set of hands to help me. Liam was all over the place and was a muddy mess by the time we left. The kids had a blast though:) I felt like Halloween totally crept up on us this year. We didn't even have time to carve our pumpkins!! 
(love the drool string)
 Q helped Liam find the perfect little pumpkin.
 Big helper:)

 Liam loved the chickens.

 Hay maze

 Playing on the train.

First Snowfall

First snowfall.
We got geared up and headed outside to play in the snow.

 We made a snowman that Q named Biscuit??

 I pulled the kids around in the sled. Not as fun as it least for me. I'm way out of shape!!
 Liam sure seemed to be enjoying himself.

 The snow didn't last long and neither did biscuit:)
Fun day!! I always love the first snowfall. It's the snow that comes in April that I despise!!
