Hunter's Gingerbread looks so good! He was very proud of it, but he just couldn't wait for Dad to get home before he ate it. It was pretty much eaten by the time Dave saw it.:)
The kids started with an empty milk carton, they frosted one side of the graham cracker and stuck it to the milk carton. I thought that this was a very clever idea because I have made gingerbread houses with kids before when I taught school, and we had a heck of a time keeping them standing. With the milk carton, you didn't have crying kids because their house had collapsed.

We had mentioned to my family that we were going to the parade, so they decided to join in on the fun.
Before they lit up Christmas Village, they had a little ceremony. We couldn't see it but we could here everything on the PA system. A little girl named Mckell was going to turn on the Christmas village lights, so of course our Mckell thought that they were talking to her. She was so excited. Luckily we were standing by a building that had a button on it. When everyone started the count down, Mckell was ready :) When we got to 1 she pushed the button, and all of the lights turned on. She thought that was the greatest. The whole night she kept telling Hunter that Santa was going to bring her lots of presents because she turned on all the lights for people to see. Isn't she the sweetest!

Dave and the guys!
Notice the cliff they are standing on.
The scenery really is beautiful in Moab!

Like Father Like Son!
We were making camamel apples, but instead of putting the caramel on the apple Mckell put the caramel in her mouth, well at least attempted to :)
No we didn't take Lexi out Trick or Treating, but the kids wanted to show her all of their candy.

Hunter painted a spiderman pumpkin. One side he has a red spiderman and the other side is a orange spiderman (he swears that there is such a thing as an orange spiderman).
As you can see, the weather wasn't the best to hunt in. Dave said that it was freezing and they didn't see any deer when the storm hit because of the snow and the fog. He walked about 16 miles in this weather, and said that he had a good time. I don't know about you, but this doesn't even look fun to me. I guess that's the reason I don't hunt.

Mckell absolutely loves her little sister. At the hospital she kept telling the nurses that they couldn't take "her" baby. The trick for us at home has been keeping Mckell off of Lexi. Mckell is constantly hugging, kissing, and tounching Lexi. It doesn't matter if she is sleeping, eating, or being held by someone else, Mckell will not leave her alone.
