Tyrel made costumes for all the kids to act out the nativity. It was so cute. Thanks Tyrel. Madelyn was Mary and Jacob was a shepherd.
Since taking a picture of all 25 people was kinda out of the question, (including 9 grand kids) We just took a Skinner siblings picture. That was hard enough, (as you can see). My sister Amy flew down here from Seattle. Thanks Amy for making the trip so that we could all get together this year. I know I look lovely and huge. Oh well! Next time I see Amy, she will be too. She is expecting #1 in May. Scott's wife Janea is also expecting #4 in May. Congratulations girls!!!

I don't know why, but it seems like Halloween has become a bit crazy. Trunk-or-treats, carnivals, parties etc. I think that next year it would be fun to take the kids to a few family members to trick-or-treat and then just stay home and let them enjoy giving out candy to others. (That would mean less candy for me to eat.) Oh well, we had a lot of fun!
Everyone at the Oldroyds for a fun PARTY!!!
Our little Witch!!!
Becky Oldroyd makes a mean witches BREW!!
These are the kids waiting at the bus stop on Halloween morning.
Having Fun in the leaves in Grandpa's yard. I love Fall!!!

I tried all morning to find tickets that were under $800.
I called my sister in law who's sister works for United Airlines. She got him on the stand-by list. Did you know that stand-by really means STAND-BY? Well that is literally what he did. He flew from Phoenix to Denver to Wichita to Chicago, to spend the night and then get up the next morning and fly to Lansing with a few hours to spare before the BIG game.
Talk about a dedicated FAN!!!!
Well the game wasn't that great but he had a blast just being there. I can't wait to post pics. (hopefully he took some)
Maybe next time we should just plan the trip in advance and get our own tickets and guaranteed flights.
Or maybe not!!! It's always fun to have an adventure!!!
