Ok, one of these nights I'm going to devote some real time to updating the blog! The last month has been SO busy! Kids are now on Christmas Break until the 6th. Connor will be in Montana until Jan 2nd. I talked to him this was 45 degrees and he was freezing! I remember when 45 degrees felt like a heat wave! Is all relative I guess. We have indeed become thin blooded islanders!

Ryen bought PlayDoh for her birthday with the money Great Grandma VanLierre sent. She and Kaelan love seeing what they can make out of it!

All of us! Connor, Ezekiel, Paul, Ryen, Leslie Jonathan, baby Oaklee, Kaelan, Krista and Caroline (Krista's mom). Was a good night!

Halloween 2009! The 1st time the kids have EVER gone out in just their bulky coats, boots, gloves, hats, etc. It was awesome! We took the girls up to the "Trunk or Treat" that members of the Mormon church put on. Some people really went all out in decorating their car trunks! Girls got quite a haul in candy. After we were done at there, we dropped Connor and his friend, Ezekiel, off at one of the subdivisions for more "treating". The rest of us went home and went to see how our little neighbor friends were dressed up. Melia was Cinderella, Ryen was a princess fairy, Sophie was a butterfly (I think!) and Kaelan was a pink punk pirate!

Big hug for NerNer! Ryen sure loves her big brother!

It's been SO HOT! We tried cooking an egg out on the blacktop! Took a while but it actually did cook! (The egg was NOT eaten.....ewwww!)
