Emma has gotten to be a big girl. She walks everywhere now. The funniest thing she does is she makes funny faces. She will look at you and move her eyebrows up and down, It cracks me up. She will make a grouch face and then make a surprised face where she makes her lips into an o shape it is really funny I will need to get a picture of it. She is growing up fast now. After Christmas I need to get her sleeping in her bed, and Ammon potty trained before the new baby comes.
The week of Thanksgiving we got a huge snow storm. It started on Sunday but didn't stick so the kids went to school on Monday, but they let them out early because it was getting bad and the buses can't operate with snow. They where home the rest of the week and played in the snow,and sledded down our hill. It never got above freezing all week and with the windchill it was around 7 degrees. The roads where so bad and we couldn't get down our hill so we had to walk to the store to get our stuff for thanksgiving dinner. It was a lot of fun, to have Chase and the kids home all week. We ate Thanksgiving dinner at our next door neighbors house, and I didn't get any pictures. We really missed our families.
It was Hannah's first band concert and was as good as can be expected from only a semester of learning an instrument. Chase had his orchestra concert and it was really good. They have really improved over the years. Since Chase is so competitve it is kinda funny how he even is in orchestra. His best friend and him compete over who gets a better chair. Somehow they are always sitting right next to each other but it switches who is in the higher chair. Chase practiced so hard and won this time. I love to hear him play the violin.
Ammon turned 3 on the 16th of November. He had a fun day and got all of the toys he could ever want. He found his presents in my closet about a week before his birthday. He would go in and stare at them and tell me he couldn't have them until his bday. Even though he knew what he was getting he was still excited to get to play with them.
It has been so crazy lately, and I am so far behind on my blog. I don't even remember Sim's bday. I have pictures though, and I do know it was on Nov. 10th. We love you Sim! We took Sim out for his bday dinner with Ammon who's bday is on the 16th, because Chase was out of town on Sim's day. After football practice he had cupcakes with his team.
