And so it begins.....Christmas time!

Took hours but I got it put up. Sahara and Jared came over to help. Then they were off to a late Thanksgiving dinner.

Jared helped Canyon with his tree.

New lights for outside this year.

Sahara and Jared put their Christmas up before Thanksgiving. Jared is off for deployment training on Monday. As far as we know, he will be back for Christmas before actual deployment.

Last time Canyon gets to do Special Olympics bowling with the Apaches! He and Lucas bowled doubles. They got Silver. Brittany bowled single and she got Gold. I'm pretty sure that means she gets to go to State. We will find out Monday.

Too bad there wasn't a lesser evil this time around :l

4 days of Halloween

Friday night, we crashed the Bost party.  Well, we were told it was for the Russellville Bost people too, but all we saw were the adult Bost workers of Dardanelle.  Oh well, we brought a dish so it wasn't like we showed up empty handed.  Lots of good food and dancing in the decorated dark gym.

Saturday was the Annual Fall Fest for the town.  This year, it was HUGE!  I even got a couple of girl cousins Christmas gifts there! (wink wink)
Canyon loves the car show.  We watched the pet costume parade and may enter next year.  Only problem is I think it's for kids to enter their pets and we are kidless.

After a nap, we got ready for Aunt Lorie's annual Halloween party.

The whole gang dresses up.
There was a photo booth in a shed.  Someone got behind us and scared us as the picture took.  I thought this might freak out Canyon....nope!  He scared back!

The kids played some games like bobbing for apples, treasure hunt, and putting the body together.  The other kids (cousins) were so good with Canyon to include him and make him part of the guys, on the guys team  They are 7 to 15 years old.

Sunday we carved our pumpkins.

Monday, the flu struck mom, so she was out.  Sahara, Jared, and Carlee took Canyon trick or treating in their neighborhood.  He brought back a huge bucket of candy.

Till next year....
