Thanksgiving (belated)

For Thanksgiving we were able to drive up to Blackfoot to spend with the Anderson side of the family. Luckily the roads were good so the 10.5 hour drive wasn't terrible. Everyone was there except for Uncle Lee (he would be there for Christmas though!) 

Aunt Nancy and Aunt Hailey helped man the children's craft/goody table.

 The adult table, sans Kyra (photographer) and Lee who stayed in Minnesota. Grandma Anderson put on quite the feast. 

Lots of fun at the kids table (they even got into a food fight--naughty children!)

Teaching Grandpa how to hold up three fingers

 We got in a visit with Great Grandma Anderson! We just love her.

 All the grandkids--next year there will be one more courtesy of Uncle Keven and Aunt Hailey!

Cute Grandma and Grandpa Anderson.

 Katelyn taught Grandma her "princess" pose.

Kate turns 3 (a bit late)

She really wanted a Tinker Bell cake.
 Thanks to Hurricane Sandy Aunt Lindsie had some extra time on her hands and was able to spend a few days with us and celebrate Katelyn's birthday and Halloween.

 And for dinner we went to Red Robin (Kate got sang too, an ice cream sundae and a PINK balloon). And her favorite thing about her birthday was her big princess balloon daddy brought home for her!
Katelyn, we love you and have been so lucky to watch you grow these past three years. You are a very special girl with a fun personality. Right now you love pink and purple, princesses, baby dolls and shoes! It appears three is the age that you became a girlie-girl. We love you!

Halloween, a bit late.

Better late then never right? Here are some pics from Halloween. Landon wanted to be a police officer but we couldn't find any costumes that fit him, so his second choice was Batman. Katelyn wanted to be a fairy princess, and Allyson was our little pumpkin.

 This was at the ward trunk or treat. The kids made out pretty good :)

They got a lot more candy after going trick-or-treating Halloween night with Mom and Aunt Lindsie :)
