The first one is him explaining something to me(if you can figure out what he's saying let me know:). The second is at the Christmas parade. He loved the marching bands and moving to the music.

Christmas Parade

It seems to have become a tradition for us to go to the Trentwoods Christmas parade. It always helps me to get in the Christmas spirit. The parade was great entertainment for Hayden as well.

Engineering project

Ryan and his teammates were assigned to make a portable, wind powered device that charges 2 AA batteries. It took lots of time but he had fun building and perfecting it.
Ryan's very willing helper. He thought the windmill was so cool.
The finished product
Ryan's parents came for a visit the weekend after Thanksgiving and as always we had lots of fun. Although Hayden gave me a run for my money that weekend, not sure what was up with him.

We had an old fashioned Thanksgiving, we ate outside and it was so warm. Mark and Heather and the family came down for the weekend, it was so fun having them around for a little bit. We had 10 adults and 17 kiddos, which created lots of activity!
