November week 4

This week started out as any normal week.  Volunteering in Connor's class and working.  Ashlee had another Orthodontist appointment.  They put brackets on her new back teeth.  We can see the end of the braces coming for her.  Hopefully only another 6 months.  She is getting really excited to finally have them off for good. 

Colton received Principals pride this week.  He received it for going up 2 reading levels at PTC and for being a fantastic kid.  I sure love him.  It was a really sad morning (which I mention later) so between the tears and laughing because he would not talk to Mr. V, it was a good morning.  Here is a cute picture with him and Mr. V.

That morning our sweet dog Roky passed away.  It was a really hard thing for our family.  Roky had Hip Dysplasia and was almost blind.  We has been with us for 6 years.  It was 6 years ago that day that Roky came to our home.  Roky had gone on bomb deployments and 1 week before his death his went on his last deployment.  We sure miss him but understand that he was needed in heaven for something. 

What a great day.  Great food and family.  Also our annual gingerbread decorating.  Pictures will come later.  The kids had a great time.  We changed it up this year.  We did gingerbread trains and little houses.  It was a lot of fun.  With the change of time this year for black Friday.  We started early with shopping.  Walmart at 10 pm and we stopped at Shoe Carnival at 9 the next morning.  What a great day.  The other tradition we have is to go to a movie on Friday morning.  This year we chose the Muppets.  It was a great movie.  I love a movie that my children love and I can laugh at too.

Saturday was my Grandparents 60th Anniversary party.  It was really nice to get together with the Hussey family and celebrate a milestone in their lives.  Good night with good food and family. 

Great week with Great Traditions.  Ready or comes Christmas!
