Caden turns 10...

 This cute freckle faced boy turned 10 on the 25th of November.  He makes my 4th 10 year old for the year.  The older these boys get the more I dread them becoming teenagers.  Caden has always been a 'fly under the radar' type of kid.  He's pretty easy going and usually gets along with everyone.  We sure do love you Caden James and are beyond grateful you belong to us!!

Junior High Wrestling and Tristen's 18th...

 Not sure how I fee about either one of these items...I don't know how much I like that I have kids that like sports, and I don't like the fact that Tristen is 18 at all!!

Zach and Paul both wrestled.  Zach did a pretty good job for his first year and Paul eventually had to quite due to behavior issues.  I will always be a wrestling fan...It is in my blood!!

I can't believe Tristen is 18.  Where has the time gone?  He was only 5 when we got him.  I will never forget the first night we got him.  After we had fed and bathed him we put him to bed...on our way out of the room he said, 'goodnight mom and dad, I love you!'.  My heart melted instantly.  He was our first foster kid and we didn't know what the future would hold, but I knew from that moment on that my life would never be the same!  We love you Tristen Lewis Martineau and are so grateful Heavenly Father put you in our path and that you are forever ours!!

Participate in Halloween...Say WHAT??

 I don't know how in the world I allowed myself to get talked into actually participating in the Heber/Overgaard COC Trunk or Treat.  I am NOT a Halloween fan...BUT I must admit we had a LOT of fun dressing the kids up, decorating our truck, and going out to the Trunk or Treat. This may have to become an annual event for us!!
