Thanksgiving 2012

 It was a Thanksgiving to be Thankful for...Especially since the Heaps made the trip home!!  Every year I have more and more to be Thankful for!!
This Year I am especially Thankful ....
That I have been given the chance to be a MOM and raise these 5!  It is my greatest blessing!
That I get to be a stay at home mom, send them out the door each morning and be here when they get home.
That I have a healthy body to take care of my family do the things that I need to do.
For Jason who knows me better than I know myself and for his complete sacrifice and dedication to our family
For the Book of  Mormon challenge that we are trying so hard to finish.  It is the bright spot in my day.
For my relationship with my Heavenly Father and the power of prayer.
I am the luckiest girl alive!

A Perfect Halloween!!

 Grandpa Clark was a good sport and came down to celebrate with these kids who LOVE him!
 The two cutest teenagers I have ever seen.  Emilee loves her Bestie Jen!

 This is my favorite face ever!  She has been counting down the days until Halloween.  She chose her own costume and has put in on everyday for weeks. 
 Jayne and Ryder heading off for their big preschool party.  The highlight of Jayne's life is playing with Ryder.  She came to me after the trunk or treat at the church with the biggest smile on her face and said "Mom, I found him.  I saw Ryder!" That is the best part of her Halloween.
 Lucy was insistent on being a clown this year. And she loved every second of it. She spray painted some of Jason's old shoes blue and clomped around all day.  She never stopped smiling and she told me that EVERYONE loved her costume and she was extra popular at school:)
 Abbie is my easy going child.  She doesn't really care what she is for Halloween.  She chose to be a hippy girl again and it just kinda fits her personality.  She just goes with the flow.  I got to help with her class party and loved watching her with all of her friends.  She is a darling girl!  She spent her Halloween Night being a "haunter" at the Roberts  Haunted Garage. She was dressed in all white and had so much fun!  We all went to the Roberts and it was fun to see her.  When it was over she couldn't stop telling us about all the boys at her school that went through it. 

 Max LOVES Halloween and always has.  It is his favorite Holiday of the year.  He didn't get to dress up at school today and it was kinda a bummer!  We had a hard time deciding/coming up with a costume for him last minute but he humored his mom and made the best of it.  He said thank you for helping him and acted happy even though I knew deep down he was a little disappointed.  I love that Boy!!!
 Mr. Dos Equis showed up to our trunk or treat and made our Halloween!  He had us laughing so hard!  He definitely is the "Most Interesting Man in the World!"
 These 3 girls melt my heart.  They are best buds and are still little little girls for now. 
 Check out that Millie Moo's costume... A Colett Speciality:)

 Jayne loved passing out the candy!  She liked to sneak more than one in each bag:)
 Then we finished our night off at Grandma Miller's famous Halloween Bash
 Lily looked so cute even when she didn't feel very good.
 These 3 darling girls were all about the trick or treating.
And little Wes is my favorite!!! Oh how I wish he had a twin that was mine:)  And of course beautiful Erin is my hero in so many ways!
Hope your Halloween was as Great as Ours!!
