It was a bit more work than I thought it would be, but Ryan finally got to have a birthday party where he could invite many friends from school. It turned out great and I think all the kids had a lot of fun.

The Turkey Trot Relay Race

The Relay Team

Starting Off

Keeping Up A Good Pace

The Strong Finish

The Proud (yet tired) Runner

Ryan ran in an 8-mile relay race on Saturday. He did awesome! Each team had four members. Each member ran 2 miles. Ryan ran the race with a few of his friends. Grandpa & Grandma were there to cheer him on. (If you look really close, you can see them in the crowd when he is first taking off). Great job Ryan!

Can you believe how fast I am growing up?

Ryan is 9 years old today! Can't believe it. He is a great kid and we love him so much. There are a few pictures below of the last 9 years. What a happy, responsible, kind kid he is growing up to be. WE LOVE YOU RYAN!!!

More importantly - also known as "Ashley's Birthday!". We had a great Halloween this year. Ashley and Kallee continued their tradition and flew in from Las Vegas for the occassion. Grandpa & Grandma also came on Saturday to celebrate Ashley's birthday and to go trick-or-treating with us. Ashley, Shawn, and I went to the Boise State Fball game in the afternoon. GO BRONCOS! Kallee, Grandpa, Ryan, and Alex went to a movie. Grandma was kind enough to stay home with AJ and Nick. Later, we ate a birthday dinner that I cooked (yep, cooked - not a typo!). Then, off for some trick-or-treating with Tom, Carter, Megan, and Jack. It was fun!
