November will go down as a record low in pictures taken for us. We just didn't take that many. It was a bit of a busy month though. We had both sets of grandparents visiting us within a 2-week period. So, we spent a lot of our time with them running around to see them or showing around town. It was fun. The kids enjoyed having them around and getting all kinds of presents and treats. Thanksgiving was good. We had some great food and enjoyed 70F weather. It made it great to go outside and take kids to the park, play football, etc. We can't believe it is already December. We have lots of Christmas parties and things to attend. We have the tree up and there are lots of presents waiting. December will fly by too.

October was an eventful month. We started by finally saying goodbye to our old blue car and buying a new one. Early in October we also got our first snow. It was a small storm. Later in the month we got another storm, this time much bigger - about 6 inches. In October we also had JoLynn's and Ariel's birthdays. JoLynn turned 30. The day after Ariel's birthday, he finally got released as the Elders Quorum President after 6 long years. But now he is the 2nd Counselor in the Bishopric. So no vacations or breaks. Finally, the kids had a lot of fun in Halloween. Jason really caught on to the whole idea of asking for candy and getting some. He would not waste any time going from one door to another either. It was fun to watch him enjoy the whole thing. November should be fun. We will get visits from both sets of grandparents. We will stay in Denver for Thanksgiving this year too.
