In our home Thanksgiving brings not only thanks, but a Christmas tree too. Every year, the day or two after Thanksgiving, we venture out to Dull's Christmas tree farm to pick out the "perfect tree". We cut down the tree ourselves, transport it back home (via the roof of Rita the Rav4), and then we decorate it to perfection. Matt's been ready to go get the tree since Halloween. It's such a fun tradition for us and this year will be our 4th year to carry the tradition on. So stay tuned, we'll have new pictures to post as the pictures above are from our trip last year.

We took a vacation and headed down to Scottsdale, AZ. Our friends Mark and Erin Lyons have a time share in Scottsdale and invited us out for a vacation with them. The boys played golf 3 of the 6 days, while Erin and I sat at the pool, relaxed, and read books! We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the time away tremendously. One day we drove up to Sedona and saw all the beautiful red rocks and went for a little hike! It's wonderful to have good friends, free time, and each other to share such a vacation.
So we got a cute little favor from my cousin Toby's wedding out in Denver this summer. It is a Blue Spruce tree seed. So I decided to plant the seed one afternoon and Zoe was very interested! She probably thought it was food or a treat perhaps, but none the less it was very cute to see her so interested, so patient, and protective of that tree seed!

Matt got some IU golfballs from his family, along with a couple nice golf shirts and some other golfing gear!
Mindy, Matt, and Mark
Zoe fell asleep on my hand. She had a lot of entertaining to do that night!
So Matty turned the BIG 3-0 on 8/8/08! We had a cookout with some close family and friends to help him celebrate the big day. With the help of Qudoba catering, a keg of Miller Lite beer, and homemade cupcakes and cookies by Amy, I think the party was a hit. By the end of the night even ZoZo was beat! We are blessed to have wonderful family and friends.
