Thanks Christmas Gingerbread Birthday...

 Yep you heard it right!...this post is going to cover Thanksgiving, Christmas Tree cutting, Gingerbread House making, and Caden's 7th B-day!!

1st we will start with Thanksgiving...We decided to stay put this year for Thanksgiving since it was our 1st one without my Dad and we felt we should spend that time with my mom.  We had lots of fun playing with cousins and doing all of the fun filled family traditions!!

 Morgon and cousins!

 Dad & Maron just chillaxin!

 Brylee, Morgon, Tessa, Macie, Amelia, & Porter

One of my mom's many traditions is Gingerbread houses and sugar cookies with the grandkids.  I'm not going to's not my most favorite of all traditions but my kids sure do love it!!

 Maryssa & this girl!

Now...One of my most Favorite traditions is getting our Christmas tree!!  My family started this tradition LONG before I was born(I know, I know...we aren't the ONLY family that does this).  It was hard going without my Dad this year, but we all felt him with us!!

While out getting trees JT decided to propose to his sweet little girlie friend, Lexi!  Jami and I went out and set it up where we tied this sign and the ring to a tree.  Then JT took Lexi for a 4-wheeler ride and just happened to run into it:)

We also celebrated Caden's 7th Birthday Thanksgiving weekend.  Can hardly believe this little guy is 7 already!!  He is a sweet boy and we are so grateful that Heavenly Father sent him to our family!!
We love you Caden!
