You have a caring heart and love your family with all that you are ~ and for that we all blessed.  The greatest gift that you have ever given us is each other.  So take a moment to sit back and cherish knowing how much you are loved on this very special day that we celebrate YOU!

What a Great Fall Day!!

Sunday was a gorgeous day, just as it has been for much of the fall..

The boys helped out by doing some raking in the back yard!

Then we headed down to Indianola to watch Bode in his last soccer game of the season.

He did such a great job and even had a goal!!!

Brystol was so excited to see Jonah and Jensen~this was his reaction when he first spotted tthem!!

4 pretty cute boys if I do say so myself!!

It was a nice weekend, even though we were missing Tony!  Friday night Jonah had his season kickoff at Kingdom Hoops, they raised over $12,000 for the charity Kingdom Cares.  Jonah raised the most money on his team and won a $50 Scheels Gift card--he also won the free throw challenge for his team and won a T-shirt.  They introduced all the teams and the kids got to run through a smoke machine--pretty cool!

On Saturday Jensen had his final football Tournament of the season in Cedar Rapids.  They won 1 game and lost 1, but played really well both games. The weather couldn't have been more perfect!  We ate at Buffalo Wild wings with his whole team and after the last game we stopped at the outlet mall for some shopping at the Nike store.

It was a gorgeous weekend, and Sunday night Jensen helped me hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters--I was a mean old lady and refused to give candy to 3 16 year old boys who were not dressed in costume....Seriously--You are too old to be out trick or treating!!

Here comes November and the Holidays...We are most looking forward to November 23rd when Tony comes HOME!!!
