Will Henry had a fun time at his big sister's class party.

Caroline, our cousin, was out of school so she came to the costume parade with Ninna.

Bella Ruth, Miss Mary and all of her class.

Clark's class getting ready for the start of the carnival.

The Star Wars character in Mrs. Pollock's class. We were missing a few others.

Clark was Commander Cody.

Trick or Treating at Grandparents with our cousins, Caroline, Reese, and Anna.

With Anna and Ninna. Will Henry would only sit on Ninna's lap after she took her spider mask off.

These pictures are a little late, but I thought that I would add them anyway. My sweet hubby is the only one who knows how to download pictures to our computer so I'm at his mercy when it comes to blog updates. And it has been a crazy fall!! Soccer coaching for two teams, All-Star coaching, housebuilding, and running a business. This is not to mention Gymnastics, Dance, Dance team and RCIA classes. I am going to have him teach me how to download, though it won't be today because he has to work. :(
We hope everyone is having a GREAT Thanksgiving Holiday!!!

I have added some updates in August (8/4 and 8/28), September (9/26) and October (10/16) too.

Our Madison

Clark and Maddie getting the playroom ready for Bella Ruth just a couple days before she was born. ( Clark had a horrible haircut for the occasion. Too funny!)
Clark was ALWAYS loving on Maddie.

Madison watching over baby Bella Ruth.

Clark hanging out with Madison and Jenni.

Maddie and Jenni on the basement stairs.

Our sweet dog Maddie, or "Maa Maa" as Will Henry says, went to dog heaven after a short illness on Tuesday, October 28. She was a 14 year old chocolate lab that I had since my first days of teaching in Oklahoma. This has been an extremely big loss to our entire family. Chris, Clark and Bella Ruth are making a beautiful wood box for her, and I am making a quilt for the inside. Her final resting place will be on our lot under a Magnolia tree. It is very fitting because she spent the first 6 years of her life under a Magnolia tree in my backyard in OKC. We love you and miss you Maddie!
