We took Easton to the Polar Express. Easton loves train!! When I heard about The Polar Express I had to take him!! And of course he LOVED it. He was so excited. And the besties ( that's what Easton calls his cousins Curtis and Annabelle) came with us to top it off! On the way to Heber Easton said "if you cry when you see Santa he will not get you any presents for my birthday!" (Easton thinks that Christmas is his birthday).
My wonderful brother got Easton a BB gun for his 2nd birthday, and it has stayed in the box for over the last year. We went shooting with the enitre family out at west mountain, and Easton asked if he could take his gun. It was put away out of sight out of mind, I thought! He remembered that he had gotten his own gun and wanted to shoot it. So we took him and some cans and he shot for quite a while I was really excited that he liked it so much.
Two tough boys!!
Wow I really want my own shot gun!!
Teandra keep your eye on the target silly girl!!
' " I love my gun!" Easton kept saying then he would say " I am going to shoot a deer head!"
So on this Thanksgiving day Nick and I have discussed some of the trial's that we have been going through and even the hardest of times there always seems to be something even small to be thankful for. Here are some of things that I am Thankful for and blessed. I am very thankful for my life and the chance to share it with Nick, and are wonderful son. I am thankful for Easton, we may not have any more children, but I have Easton to bring me so much joy and happiness.I am thankful for the best husband ever and having the chance to spend time and eternity together. I am very thankful for the church and all of the wonderful members. I am thankful for having the priesthood in my home and the blessings that follow. I am thankful for the small things that people do in my life that sometimes go without recognition. I am thankful for my families health. I am thankful to wake up every morning in my wonderful house that Nick built for me. I am thankful that Nick has a great job so that I don't have to work away from home and get to spend time with my little man. I am thankful for people that have influenced my decisions in life to be where I am and who I am and not to be ashamed. I am thankful for my friends that are always truly a friend when. I am so thankful for all my wonderful nieces and nephews that are all amazing!

Totally have slacked at the blog lately!! So here is are Halloween Party! It was so much fun. We had a great time with great food and then we watched Monsters vs Aliens on a big projection screen set up in the back yard. I just wish that I hadn't spent that morning in the hospital.
