November Fun

 The weather here in Arizona is so beautiful in November so I decided to take the kids to the Zoo.  I also took Ingeborg and Jenna.  We had fun looking at all the animals.

 The kids love to play at the little park by the petting zoo.
 Ingeborg's first time to the Phoenix zoo.

 Adalynn and Monroe at their first grade Thanksgiving performance and feast.
 Mariana's mom sent Allden a transformer for his birthday.
 She sent Alydia this baby alive first tooth doll that she loves!
 Patsy turned 8 and was baptized, this is all the people that attended.
 This is the loft of our playhouse in the playroom.  We now have a slide and a ladder so they really love to play in that room.
 After Thanksgiving we drove up north around Pine to chop down our Christmas tree.

 Grandpa with his chainsaw ready to chop down the tree.
We brought the forest home with us!  This tree was cut down to 12 ft tall to fit in the family room, it was also about 9 ft wide!

 Brett won tickets at work to go to the Mystery Mansion and the theme was Vampire wedding.  So we dressed up like vampires and had dinner and a show.  It was pretty funny but they picked on people in the audience to participate and I was picked on a little which I didn't like but still a fun night.

 Here we are at our dinner table.  We had to put tags on telling us what character we were in the play.
 We had fun picking out pumpkins and carving them.

 Yes we dressed up for trick or treating.  I found a bag of costumes and pulled out something for Brett and I to wear we had fun trick or treating with the kids.

 We went to our ward trunk or treat and the girls brought their good friends Corey and Jessie.  We had a fun time!

Arizona State Fair

 I took the kids to the Arizona State Fair along with Allden's preschool class.  We got in for Free!  We had a great time!  First we looked at all the animals.

 These were some of the biggest roosters I have seen.
 We liked the llamas.

 Alana's favorite was the butterfly exhibit.  You could pick up the butterfly's with q-tips that had some nectar on them.  Alydia and Allden were a little scared to pick them up.
 The kids got to go on 3 rides....bumper boats was a hit!

Bumper Cars....and they also went down a giant slide and Alydia went on a carousel ride.  It was a fun day!
