November 2012!

November was a fun month.  Lots of visiting with family.  Knowing that everyone would already have plans for Thanksgiving, I decided to get a few of the Bassett family together for an early-Thanksgiving.  Tia had planned to come, but work got in the way.  Bart was working in North Dakota.  And Bret and Heidi had already made arrangements to go to Wyoming State Football that weenend (which Powell won, by the way!)  So that left me, Tara, Michelle, and my parents to get together.  We had a great time:)

 First night with all the little grand kids in the tub!
 Brooklyn and Peyton are only 5 months apart and they loved getting so spend time together.  With Brooklyn living in St. George and Peyton in Murtaugh, it's a treat when they get together.
 Aunt Tara's done having kids, but she's loving lovin on her baby nieces and nephews.
 We did Peyton and Brooklyn's hair like twinners!  They thought it was so fun.
 Quite the trio.  Peyton is 43 months, Brooklyn is 38 months, and Bentley is 24 months.
 They were "chink-ing" forks while sharing a bowl of cut up hotdogs!
 Baby Charly's 3 months!
 Bentley loves dancing and loves the song "Call me Maybe" but got shy in front of the audience so mom helped him.
 This was the group get together for our "Thanksgiving" dinner.  Minus mom, who took the picture....and about 5 minutes later, dad surprised us by showing up a day earlier then expected:)
 Papa Rusty was a good baby-sitter:)
 Addison is Bart's youngest (until January) and is an absolutely adorable little thing.  She's so funny and spunky.
 Tara's kids don't have any littles around so they had a ton of fun have Michelle's and I's around to play with.
 Charly's big enough for the bumbo now, and she loves being able to be included and see what's going on:)
 Chris and Charly chillin at Grannie Annie's.
 Michelle and Rob got to come to Murtaugh for the first half of Thanksgiving break.  Paxon was so much for my kids to get to play with.
 Uncle Kyle is always a favorite because he'll take them outside and play.
 And teach them how to get into the field without having help.
 Bentley and Grandpa Dayn playing telephone.
 Grannie Annie doesn't get very much Charly time because my other kids are usually mauling her so she takes advantage when she can.
 Hop-2-it with the kids.
 Mom, Bentley, and Peyton playing in the ball pit.
 Hailie and Derek got to come down for the 2nd half of Thanksgiving break so we got to spend time with them too:) Aunt Hailie, future baby Scott(around 26 weeks), and Charly!
 Chris found a guy that would battle him and Peyton liking watching.
We had a great time at Hop-2-it with the kids and family.  It was so nice to get to see so much family in one month.  Life is good in our neck of the woods.

My Bentley Austin is 2!

My Bentley boy is 2!  He has such a good day!  We didn't so anywhere or do anything HUGE, but he had a day filled with love, family together, and a few presents, and he seemed just great with that.
 Day started out with some nice warm german pancakes for breakfast.
 Peyton loves her brother and didn't leave his side all day!
 The kiddos love eating:)
 Bentley and his presents.
 Bentley blowing out the candles.
 He loved his toys! A bus and trailer and truck.

It was a great day:)  He is such a fun kid.  He calls Chris "Tis", Peyton "Ya-ya", Charly "Ar-ey", juice cup "doos tup".  He is getting so big. The shirt he's wearing in this picture is the shirt Chris wore to his 4th birthday party.  He likes gatorade, pop, string cheese, mac-n-cheese, reeses cups, rice crispies, watermelon, corndogs(the corn bread), and toast.  He is so fun to have in our home and we wouldn't trade him for anything!  Love you Bentley.

October 15th-31st!

Fly's were finding their way into our house somehow and we couldn't figure out where.  Until the day I decided it was time to take out the AC!  They were filing in one by one through our bedroom window!
Chris was so excited to do "movie night" with his brother and sister.  Until he realized they don't actually watch the movie!  But they all had fun in mom and dad's room!
Grannie Annie gave my kids these super cute Halloween count down for them to get a little something each day for 13 days before Halloween!  My kids LOVED them!  The begged every day to open the next one.
FHE: Decorate Halloween cookies!
I helped Bentley frost, but he handled the sprinkles.
Peyton did her own frosting, and needless to say, more got on her shirt and pants then the cookie, but it was fun to watch her figure it out for herself.
Chris had a ton of fun!  He even gave his stitches.
This is how Charly spends her evenings.  Chillin on the couch, watching sports with daddy.
 The elementary put on a little Halloween dance.  Chris was the white ninja off GI Joe.
 Grannie Annie and Uncle Kyle came to watch:)
 Peyton had begged me all day to put on her costume.  Then once it was on, she didn't want the wings.
 Bentley and his monkey self, tried to eat that darn banana many times.
 She has this face when she's trying to smile for me! Real sincere as you can tell.
 They were so cure and loved showing off their costumes.
 All four of my adorable kiddos and boy does this picture just pin point their personalities!
We had a ball at the Halloween carnival and trunk-or-treating.  My kids are such a fun age!
