Birthday Party!

After the boys' basketball game, we headed to Ankeny to celebrate our nephew's upcoming 4th birthday! The cousins all had a fantastic time together and the adults stayed up way too late! It was a really fun time and we are all exhausted today!

Game 2!

Conner and Ben had their second basketball game this afternoon. They both are doing really good and still getting used to playing their own position on the court! They both enjoy basketball so much and they play it at school all the time, so we will see if this something they will want to stick with!

The Show...

We decided to check out something new tonight. We heard about a nearby light show set to music and we were not disappointed! We went north of Center Point (with our hot chocolate) and we found our way to the show. It was awesome to watch and it had great songs to go with it. The boys really enjoyed it and it was well worth the drive!

Basketball Game!

This morning, the boys had their first basketball game! They were so excited... too excited to sleep! They had a lot of fun at their game. And they were both exhausted after that! They did a lot of running up and down that basketball court! They are already counting the days until their next game... Ben is #8 and Conner is #7!

Bring on December!

We were very busy today getting our house ready for December! We got the tree up and decorated and we even put a tree up in the basement for the boys to decorate! We also got lights up outside! We are ready to put some presents under that tree!!!

First Project and Movie of the Season...

The boys got a lego set yesterday, so we started to put that together tonight. We also watched Christmas Vacation for the first time this season and even though the boys were pretty tired from traveling, we all enjoyed watching one of our favorite movies!

Thanksgiving and Early Christmas...

We traveled to Burnsville Minnesota to celebrate Thanksgiving and an early Christmas with Nick's family on Friday. We had a wonderful meal and the boys enjoyed some gifts! They were also asked to be ushers in Nick's cousin, Austin's, wedding in April and they were very excited about the suspenders they received for the wedding!
