We had such a great Thanksgiving this year. Dave's parents and brother Dan and his family and his uncle Bruce and his family all came in town and we had a big family dinner at his Aunt Pam and Uncle Steve's house. There were a total of 28 of us (I think 29 if you could my sister's baby Ladd) and it was perfect. After dinner I gave up trying to keep Addison out of the fountain in the backyard. In just one big splash she was soaked so I just took all her clothes off. It wasn't freezing outside because it is almost never freezing in Phoenix, but it was chilly and the water was really cold, but she didn't seem to care. By the end she was shivering so hard she couldn't even walk, but she just kept laughing and squealing with joy. When she tried to climb in the fountain is when we decided she was done.

We love weekends!

We had such a fun day last Saturday. First thing in the morning Addie went outside with her dad and helped clean windows. Her "assignment" was to get all of the suds out of the bucket. That was so much fun that she stuck her head in the water as well. She was sopping wet by the time they finished.

After a nap we went to the Arizona State Fair. Addison wanted to camp out in the petting zoo the whole time.

This was a fun exhibit where little kids get to "plow" a "field". She didn't care what it was. She loved riding on the tractor.Lastly she rode the Carousel. She looks so old in this picture.

I am finally finding time to blog about Halloween. Addison was so excited to wear her bee costume. When I first bought it I put it on her to make sure it would work and she thought it was really funny. When I pulled it out of her closet on Halloween, she couldn't stop giggling. She was so excited to wear it. I had to take these pictures quickly because she wouldn't stop running around the house. She was already way too hyper, even before the candy came out. I think she likes this holiday. There aren't any good poses, just action shots.

At our ward trunk-or-treat she rode on a train with this girl named Chloe. You can't tell from the look on her face, but she absolutely loved it. She screamed when I took her out.
