Happy Thanksgiving

Joel is on the left and cousin Elijiah is on the right. These two little guys didn't get to sample the turkey this year, but had a lot of fun visiting with family for Thanksgiving at Grandma & Grandpa Meyer's Home for dinner. These two little guys were born a week apart, and I can tell already they will grow to be best buds!

Here is little Mr. Joel with his awesome Aunt Cami. When we got to Angie's for Thanksgiving dinner, I put Joel in his swing so I could help in the kitchen. He loves his swing, and slept for a good two hours....even with all of the other cousins running around. When he finally got up, Aunt Cami was there to give him a nice Thanksgiving greeting.

Here is Miss Sophia Marie just before dinner working up an appetite playing....what is this game called again???...well she is working hard at defeating Uncle Derek, so, she couldn't possibly look up and give me a smile. I believe she did win....with a little help from Uncle Spencer who stood close by to help defend our goal. We had such a nice time visiting with all of our family. Everyone did a wonderful job on the meal, and you couldn't ask for better company.

Look....I can say hi!

Just playing with Joel while the others were at school. I grabbed the camera for some quick pictures....i said "hi Joel", and he put his hand up! He's not even three months old yet, so it had to be just fluke.....or was it??????

Still working on getting a smile on I am counting this as a half smile

Where the heck did little Joel get that light's even got some red in it. Also, where did he get that little curl up top? It makes me sad when I remember he's our last little baby. So, I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I feel to be able to spend all day with him one on one, while the older kids are at school. But I'll tell you, it seems like time is just flying by!

Just in time for Christmas

All Sophie wants for Christmas is her two front teeth! Well, along with a few other things. What a little cutie. And to top it off, she lost the second of the two front teeth two days before picture day.


HOLY COW! Anybody have an idea what in the heck this is???? Well I would be thrilled to tell you. Last week I left the house to take Joel for a check up. It was such a nice day outside, so I decided to press this tiny little black button. ( the one in the photo that is covered by tape) What does this tiny little back button do? It's ever so hard and taunting job is to make the drivers window go up and down. Pulling up to the doctors office, the darn little back button wouldn't do its job. I called Dustin and he said he would look at it when I got home, but to be sure to lock the doors so the alarm would set. When I got home I had the bright idea that maybe I would be able to fix this problem. After taking the door panel off Dustin came outside and to see what I was up to. He laughed when he saw me in the floorboard of my car with a little screwdriver trying to take my door apart and who knows what else. He asked me what my plan was once I removed ten screws, and if I new anything about working with electrical? I sadly put the door back together and called to see if anyone could look at my car downtown. Well guess what? This little black button.......the thing is a $300.00!!!!! little black thing, labor on top of that, it is going to cost $500.00 to fix. So.... I just had them put the window up, and that baby is gona have to have to stay up until Spring! and.....NOBODY TOUCH THE TAPE!

Ready For Church

Joel was the the first one to be totally ready for church today. I guess that is because he was the easiest. Mommy is usually running around the house making sure someone is either getting in the shower, or trying to get someone out of the shower, getting breakfast ready, looking for the lost church shoe.... and yes, that would be mommy's lost church shoe, looking for the crayons and coloring books, and making sure the diaper bag has enough diapers. This morning we were in a rush. That would seem a little strange since we gained an extra hour over night. However, if you stay up extra late knowing that you will have that extra hour, you will probably be in a rush to get to church on time.
As I was packing the diaper bag, I looked up and there was Joel sitting on the couch patiently waiting to go to church. cutie pie. I never like being rushed on Sunday's, but we had such a good time last night, I think it was worth it. Dustin and I haven't been able to go on a date for almost three months due to me being on bed rest for the last 1o weeks of the pregnancy, and then the time it took to recover from the surgery. We had such a good time going out with Kevin and Liz. We went to Chico for dinner, and then went to see a movie. Since we had some extra time to burn before the movie started, we went to the Mervyn's that is located right next door to the movie theater. Liz and I went to the children's department, while the guys went to see what was on sale in their department. When we headed to the movie, Liz and I noticed that the guys had bought something while we were not looking. When we were getting our tickets Dustin and Kevin ran to the restroom. All of the sudden two men approached us wearing these black "beanie" hats with black shirts that had gold and silver skulls on them. I stepped back and then realized these men were our husbands!!!!! Liz and I were laughing so hard, while our husbands were acting as though they had no idea what was so funny. We had a fun night!!

Happy Halloween!

The Ford Family had a nice, and luckley, a dry Halloween. Sophie was a princess again for the third year in a row. Joseph went as Stich. And my lil' pumpkin, went as a pumpkin. We had lots of fun going to grandma's & grandpa's houses, along with homes of our friends. The highlight of the night was a suprise visit from Brittney, Jason and the kids. We are so glad that they live a little bit closer to Oroville now. We are glad the rain held up yesterday for trick or treating, but it's nice today to have a soccer free day to sit in our warm house and watch movies. And even better, there is a pot of homemade chili cookin' in the kitchen.
