Lu Lu got this Reinedeer sucker in her stocking on Christmas. For some crazy reason she thinks that reindeer must growl. It was the funniest thing EVER to listen and watch her!

*The shutter on our camera we haven't taken many photos as of late, except with the kids' cheap camera. Be patient...we'll get it fixed someday. I'll try and be better about posting all the photos we took up until it died.*

Ultimate Gum Kit...Noah's dream come true.

We got to make our own gum and pick the flavors. We had a lot to choose from.

As you can imagine it was a horrible mess.

But like any good scientist Noah persisted and though he disliked the sour batch he loved the cotton candy version we made, and even saved some for Mom and Arwen.

We went and visited Grandma and Grandpa Nielsen and all the Aunts and Uncles and cousins this year for Thanksgiving. Here are a few silly pictures from the trip!

Remember Fenton's Ice Creamery from "Up?" We went there. Twice. It is the yummiest place to get ice cream. Ever. Larkin insisted on sporting this fashionable hat the first time we went. Apparently she brought along her own treat :)

Noah made friends with a gopher snake.

Arwen fell in love with Grandma's chickens.

Joshua had fun playing the the ashes and munching on all the yummy pomegranates and persimmons from Grandma and Grandpa's trees!
