Oh, David

Marissa is an avid reader. She especially loves children's literature, and she faithfully reads to her children every day. One of their favorite stories is a book entitled "Oh, David" by David Shannon. They've heard this story so many times that even little Lila has it memorized. While they were here for Thanksgiving Ann recorded Finn and Lila "reading" the story. If you listen carefully, at the very end of the story you'll hear Lila say the last line, "I love you".  TOO CUTE!!!

Halloween and Beyond

While Marissa and Levi were here for Thanksgiving we went out for Chinese. Lila didn't want anyone to carry her or even hold her hand, but she would let Isaac hold her hand. It's was pretty sweet to watch.

Once again Carter and his cousin Jared played together for the Federation Duet Festival. Their performance wasn't as polished as in the past, but the still received a Superior rating.

A recent trip to IFA was an opportunity for Isaac to pet a rabbit. Terry and I were price shopping food storage items and one of the workers offered to let Isaac pet the rabbit. 

As usual, Isaac got a bucket full of candy. I have say though, as much as he LOVES candy; he's very generous with it.

A Visit From Marissa, Finn & Lila

 Levi had an out-of-town business trip shortly before Halloween so he brought Marissa and the kiddos to visit us. While they were here we took advantage of some fun Halloween traditions. We decorated Halloween Honey Cookies. The only rule I give the kids is "no building towers" on the cookies. I did, however, spy a few candy corn towers in spite of the rule.

We also attended the Jensen Pumpkin Festival.
