Aunt Janece encouraged Sarah to put her first tooth out by offering her part of her Christmas present right then! Well WHO can resist a Christmas present?! NOT Sarah!! So, in no time at all she ripped out that first tooth. And I mean SHE ripped out that tooth! Aunt Janece brought out her present and it was a Junie B Jones book, Toothless Wonder! *wink*
It was soon after that first front tooth came out that Sarah was wiggling at the second one...and soon it was HANGING in her mouth!
And at last, here's Sarah...my toothless wonder! *wink* She is growing up on me so fast!
Leave it to Kaleb to ham it up!
aww now THATS sweet!

This is Topher's Turkey, on the back he had several things written...at first I thought it was a list of the things he was thankful for...but after I read potatoes I knew that COULDN'T be it! *wink*
Here's a collage of things that Kaleb's thankful for. What I find most amusing is that he has pictures of lots of ducks and then a hunting jacket...hmmm LOL!
Emily drew this holy all by herself! I thought it was cute...so I'm sharing. And here's just a cute picture she drew. Funny story-several nights ago we were eating dinner and Kaleb called me Ms Wilson. I said who?! Ms Wilson is his teacher *wink* I then started pointing out how I didn't even LOOK like his teacher...I said she had blonde hair I have brown she's REALLY short I'm just a little short *wink* Then Christopher piped in and said, "ya she's skinny and you're fat" I turned around and acted REALLY shocked that he just said that! The kids were all laughing. I was standing by Emily and she reached over and while squeezing my stomach said "Mom's not fat she's just squishy!" LOL!!

I love how the Queen is holding up her skirt and there's a sailor (most likely from the ship wreck *wink*) that's carrying her bags.
This is just too cute. Her teacher had her spell everything...can you tell? Nearly everyday Sarah brings home a paper that says "I like my mom" I LOVE it...who doesn't want to hear that their kids likes them? WHO? Sometimes her paper says "I like my mom"..."my mom likes me" Those are my favorite papers!
I am thankful to be a mom.

Looking into the family room at Sarah's decorations.
Kayleah made this sweet card for Sarah and had everyone sign it. It was really sweet.

Sarah found her pumpkin first. It soon became mom's pumpkin *wink*
Emily found a cute pumpkin and baby one to go with it. Sadly she had to choose only one. She picked the bigger of the two. lol!
We went with our good friends the Taylor's. It's their tradition to come here each year to pick a pumpkin out. Thanks guys for sharing this tradition with us! We had a blast, as always! Isaac was hamming it up for the camera when I asked him to smile. Too cute!
Liah with a little pumpkin...this is not the pumpkin she ended up with, but it was super cute!
Wow...that's a lot of pumpkins to choose from...
how about this one...
feels good...but is it perfect? it's so hard to see if it's perfect?
yep. He's checking "levelness" of them. lol!
Finally! FOUND IT! And it IS perfect. *wink*
Kayleah found her perfect pumpkin. She tried out several before she settled on this one.
Yes, that is Sarah's pumpkin. And yes, she has turned it into a bridal bouquet. Only Sarah would turn a pumpkin upside down and march up and down the trailers humming the wedding march! *Cute story alert!* In the car on the way home Sarah and Gabriel were sitting in the back seat in Jenn's van. Sarah was apparently tired at one point and laid her head down in Gabriel's lap. Shortly after Gabriel leaned over and kissed her cheek. Now, we've had to have a couple "discussions" with our kids and lovin' each other so much...it's cute, but ya know what I'm talkin' about. Anywho!- Jenn saw this and said "Gabriel..." to which he replied "What mom? I know we can't kiss on the lips until we're married but I'm just kissing her on the cheek" ... Jenn said "I know but you don't need to be kissin' anybody till you're married, so no more kissing" A few minutes later Gabriel leaned over and whispered to Sarah "I'm gonna marry you so I can kiss you." How cute is THAT?! Pretty stinkin' cute I think. *wink*
Gabriel found a pumpkin but I didn't get a picture before he put it in the car. Here, he climbed up on the trailer, sat down and said, "here I am, King Gabriel" and he sat. on his throne. LOL!
All the kids had a ball picking out their pumpkins and then later showing them off to EVERYONE they came in contact with. The day was perfect, the weather cooperated and we couldn't have asked for better company. Ahhh, fall.
