Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope that you all had as great of a day as we did. We have so much to be thankful for.

We started out our day just hanging out, watching the Macy's parade, eating a big breakfast and being lazy. Later in the afternoon we went to my Grandma's house to visit for a little while before we headed to Kyle's mom's house for dinner.

It was a great day to just spend together, eating.

And this is how our day ended -

Fun around the house

Brayden being a marker monster!

Showing his Johnston blood - helping mom make the pudding pie for Thanksgiving.

Making hand Turkeys - except that they didn't really look like turkeys...
And he wasn't very interested in looking at the camera.

So much fun!

This has been their routine since Brayden was just a baby!

We have a jumper!

Time just flies!

Sorry it has been so long since an update. I can't believe how time just flies. We haven't been up to much of any excitement which is part of the reason for the delay. No point in posting if there isn't anything to talk about. I did realize though that I never even posted Halloween pictures.

On Halloween Kyle and I had to chaperon a Halloween Party at our church, so we didn't have much time for Trick-Or-Treating. We met up with Grandma Maryanne and Tiyler and went trunk-or-treating at the Impact Church in Lowell. Whoever came up with this concept was brilliant. It took us about 20 minutes to hit a parking lot full of cars. The kids ended up with more than enough candy, and it didn't involve dragging a toddler to a bunch of houses. Brayden of course didn't really understand the concept at first, but once he realized that he was getting candy and that all the other kids were really excited about it, he started to really get into it.

We also took Brayden to his very first Red Arrow football game. The Red Arrows took on Caledonia for a very good game. I have to say that I have never seen Red Arrow Stadium so full. The game was pretty stressful right around half time, but they ended up pulling of a win. Unfortunately, they couldn't keep the streak going and have now ended their season. :( We only stayed until the end of the third quarter, but he had a blast. We had to park at an elementary school and take a shuttle to the stadium, so he got to take his very first bus ride, which was beyond super exciting. Once we got to the game he got to see Brittany and Travis, some of his favorite people in the world. Brittany is a cheerleader, and since this is her senior year, this was also our last chance to see her cheer. Unfortunately, the picture I have of Brit isn't very good, the stinkin cheerleaders kept moving.
