November 2012

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Jason's family in Salt Lake City.  It was a great trip with lots of fun with cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas.  The boys hung up Christmas lights on the house, the cousins had a fun sleepover and we all went to Temple Square.

Color Me Rad 5k
Jack and I ran the Color Me Rad 5k with some friends.  I thought for sure Jack would sit in the stroller most of the time - but he and his little buddy Max surprised us.  They wanted to run!  I would guess that Jack ran almost 2 miles on his own.  Good job my little runner!

Christmas Story Family Home Evening
The last Monday night in November, we decided to have to family night with the Nativity.  We talked about the story of Jesus' birth and I really felt like the boys were listening.  Then at the end, Jack slowly pics up the Baby Jesus - loudly burps - and says, "Did ya hear that Baby Jesus?"  Sigh . . . oh well . . . boys will be boys I guess!
This month Jack was the start student in his preschool.  He is growing up and doing so well with his numbers, letters, colors, days of the week, etc!  He knows how to spell his first and last name and even Owen's name.  Now if we could just get him to not have any more potty accidents in preschool . . . 
I asked Jack what he would like from Santa this was the response I got: "I would like a magic wand or a witches' broomstick to fly on."  I sure hope Santa can pull that one off!
Owen has loved all the Christmas decorations!  Especially Rudolph's nose (as you can see. . .).  He loves to sing "Frofy the Snowman" and "Sunbeams."  He is just a very happy and pleasant child with lots of hugs and kisses.
He does get sad when Jack leaves for preschool in the morning though!

Your boys are so stinking cute!!! I love that picture of Max and Jack holding hands and running! Adorable!
Oliver would DIE if he saw the lights at Temple Square...he freaks when he sees any lights on houses...he gets so excited!
Fun month!
