Halloween and Deer Hunt

This year for Halloween the boys decided they wanted to be welders.  My mom is quite the seamstress, so I always relied on her to do the sewing for me. But since she is so far away, I decided at the last minute to make thier costumes myself. I have never really sewn a piece of clothing before but I think the shirts and welding caps turned out pretty cute for my first try! The boys had fun going to the church trunk r treat, the Beechstreet carnival and the Pleasant View carnival.

Cutest welders ever!!
The first part of November was the deer hunt. My brother-in-law Todd and Morgan both had tags this year. Julie and her boys were able to come down for the weekend also. The boys had so much fun playing together. Morgan and Todd both got really nice bucks this year.

Here are some random pictures I had on my phone
The boys on their first day of preschool. They go to Beechstreet Preschool and Lancer is in the "blue" room and Wyatt is in the "red" room.

Lancer napping in the laundry basket. I knew it was too quiet in their room when they were suppose to be cleaning.

The Farming Life 2012

Here are some pictures of the fun we had this summer farming
The boys and I changing water in the rain
Here comes trouble!! Morgan taught the boys how to drive the 4-wheeler. Now if they were just big enough to change water!

Morgan plowing the field by our house

Cutting hay on Road EE

Morgan got the windrower stuck while he was cutting barley on the Yellow Jacket field. It was quite the day. Morgan called me and asked me to come help pull him out. So first we tried my pickup and we couldn't get that tractor to budge, plus we burried my truck. So then we go BIG RED (Morgan's Massey Tractor)  Okay so just so you know I haven't driven a tractor since before the boys were born, so needless to say I was a little rusty and if you know Morgan, he isn't the most patient person. To make a long story (and long night) short, after much yelling and cussing and slammed doors and arms thrown in the air (on both our parts) we finally got that tractor and windrower out!!!.....Until the next day when it got stuck again in a different field! But this time it was a lot easier and I can now say I am a pro. haha just kidding.
The boys killing time while we were stuck

This picture is kinda dark but Morgan is cultivating beans in Yellow Jacket and I think the sky looks cool in the background

I was proud of myself this year for actually remebering to take pictures-although next year I need to do even better.

While we were at my sister's house we decided to have Julie take the boy's 5 year pictures. I thought they turned out pretty good. I have such handsome boys!!
Here are the pictures of Wyatt

Here are the pictures of Lancer


Handsome Boys!!

Me and my boys!!

What a goof-ball

This one makes me laugh so hard!!

North Dakota

This last week we flew and visited my parents in Cando.We spent a whole week there. My Sister and I and the kids went. The kids have been missing them so much and had been counting down the days till we were going to see them.
Here we are getting ready to get on the plane.
We flew into Fargo late that night so we decided to head to the Fargo Zoo before we headed to my parents house.

Easton, Julie and Me

It was more of a domesticated zoo. There weren't very many exotic animals. The boys still loved seeing all the animals

The boys riding the carousel at the zoo.
We then headed to Cando. My parents house is the white one on the left. This is one of many walks that we had. It was nice that they lived right in the middle of town so we could just walk everywhere. The weather was perfect (except the last day when the blizzard hit and delayed our plane for 8 hrs).

Playing at the park near their house

These boys loved the merry-go-round.
On Saturday my Dad took us fishing at Devil's Lake. They had been scouting out fishing spots for weeks for us. The found a spot that was perfect for a picnic and fishing plus had a playground

Grandpa getting the poles ready

What a good fishing hole!!
We also went to a pumpkin patch and let the boys pick out their own pumpkins

They decided that they wanted to paint them instead of carve them.

My parents have a really cool cabin in their back yard. The boys loved playing in it and also got to spend the night with Grandma in it.

It is so hard to get Wyatt to take a normal picture!!

Grandma with her boys!! They sure miss not having them so close anymore!!

Playing in the leaves.

Posing for a picture!!
Thanks for the fun trip Mom and Dad!! We can't wait to see you again!!
