So this has become an annual family tradition, going to the Coconino game. (or the Flag High game, which ever you want to call it?) Josh went to Coconino, and I went to Flag High, so it becomes a bit of a problem, like where to sit and what color to dress the kids in. When my little brothers were playing, of course we would sit on the Flag High side and Josh got to dress them in black and red. Now what do we do? This year we sat on the Coconino side because we went with Grandma and Grandpa who would not want to sit on the green side. I decided oh well, we can sit on the losing side, all that really matters is who wins, right? So there I am sitting with my green shirt on in the middle of a black and red crowd. Whoooooo! Both kids fell asleep but as always we had a great time! There is always next year, and the next year............

I love this picture!!

Grandmas is a great pillow! Thanks!
I will let you guess who is home and guest!?

The First Snow

This was the PERFECT snow!!! It was just enough snow to be beautiful and finally feel like winter, but there was no need to shovel, there were no cinders on the road, and the snow was melted by the time the kids came home from school so I didn't have to bundle them up to go out and play! Although I am looking forward to more snow, this was a nice first storm! I love Flagstaff!

Here are some pictures from Halloween. This is the warmest Halloween I can remember. In years past there was either snow on the ground or it was 20 degrees. This year was nice so we didn't have to bundle the kids up like they were going sledding. You can actually see their costumes this time.

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!

Josh is the carving pumpkin expert!!! I just watch.

Everyone at the Oldroyds for a fun PARTY!!!
