I just love this picture of Collin sitting on the fireplace doing his homework while trying to stay warm. Collin is a great kid with a strong testimony of the Gospel. He is a hard worker and always gives 110% in what ever he is doing. It is a privelge to be his mother.
Every fall year when it is the first snow fall of the year, we celebrate with a snow party. We make some sort of Snow man treat to eat. This year we made giant Snowman, sugar cookies. We frosted them and decorated them to look like frosty the Snow man. Then we watch a movie and we eat our snow treat with hot Cocoa. My kids love this tradition we started when Collin was just a little kid. They can't wait to have the first snow fall to celebrate! I love making memories with them. These are the kinds of things they will remember as adults. I still remember every year at Christmas time when I was young kid, going to grandpa Houser's to decorate a tree in remembrance of my Great Grandma Nanny. Nanny loved Christmas so much she would leave her tree out all year long . At Grandpa Houser's all the great grandchildren would decorate a small tree to remember Nanny. Then we would make Christmas trains out of candy. I also remember every New Years Eve we would have a glorious party with homemade donuts Grandpa Houser made. I hope someday I can celebrate the first snow fall with my grandchildren, while my kids reminisce of the day the had theirs.
Collin was Merlin the Magician, Parker was Harry Potter, Sariah was an Indian , Meg a Princess. The kids had fun trunk or treating and going to visit Great Grandpa Houser, and Grandpa-ma Gibby. Sariah and Parker had all their candy gone in a day and a half! Meg was sharing with her siblings 5 days later.
Merlin and Morgana, Collin got to come to the Adult Gibby Halloween party this year. His first date ever! He had tons of fun he text simile faces to all his friends. It took him a lot of courage to ask a girl out. He had to over come is girl shyness, but he agrees it was worth it.
