Santa and Colton's School Program

Our Santa picture.
We also saw Santa at the Y.
Looking dapper before his school Christmas program.

Colton and his teacher, Mrs. Jeanie.

Welcome to the family, JoJo!

I decided to get the boys an Elf on the Shelf this year.  After I read the story to Colton, he decided to name him JoJo.  We love JoJo in our house and it's a big thing in the mornings to go see where JoJo ended up.  


Colton thought JoJo needed something to eat before his long trip to the North Pole.


JoJo went for a run in his new tennis shoes.  He listened to mommy's IPod and got so thirsty he had to drink a whole bottle of water.

My mom and I went to the Mall of America on Thanksgiving night at Midnight.  It was so much fun.  We stayed until about 5:30am.  We were so exhausted when we got home!!!!

Trying to get the boys' picture for the Christmas card.


Minnesota Wild Game

Casey got a chance to get tickets through work to go and watch the Minnesota Wild.  They are leading the NHL right now.  We had great seats.  Since they play at XCEL Energy Center and that is the company who Casey works for, we got to sit in one of the suites.  It was mine and Casey's first hockey game and it was actually pretty neat to watch, especially from the suite!!!  I guess we should start liking hockey, since Minnesota is called the State of Hockey.



Pre-Game warmup.
Mike Fisher is #12.  You might know him as Carrie Underwood's husband.
They turn the lights out while they do player introductions.

Halloween 2001



Thank goodness it was nice weather again for Halloween.  Colton went as Lightning McQueen (big shocker) and Chase was Aubie, Auburn University's mascot.  Unfortunately, no one up here knew who he was, but he still looked cute.  Colton, of course, loved every minute of it and Chase still needs a year to get in the swing of things.  We will never get through all the candy!!

My 2 pumpkins.

 McQueen and Minnie.

Aubie the Tiger








He wouldn't put the candy in the bag.  He wanted to eat it right there.


Watching big brother go first.



This was as far as he would go at this house.

Waiting for trick-or-treaters to come to the door.

We always have to do what big brother is doing.

Beautiful Fall Day


Last Saturday was a beautiful Fall day and will more than likely be one of the last ones before the Old Man Winter blows in.  We are trying to enjoy doing things outside for as long as we can.  We went to a park overlooking the Mississippi that had walking trails and a huge playground.  








Colton showing Chase the right path.

Although it's a little blurry, we think we might have a Sasquatch sighting on our hands.



The boys with their walking sticks.


Looking for a squirrel.



Riding on the tire swing.

These beautiful trees will be covered in snow in probably a month.  So sad.
