Carving Pumpkins







We carved and painted our pumpkins in high fashion this year!

Thomas-Jensen's pumpkin has a bat-cat, Jackson is the spooky face, and Asthon is the two little ghosts! It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of hard work! Jack wants to take the seeds and bake them, now if only I knew how to do that?!?

Hut, hut, HIKE!

Ashton and Jackson played flag football again this year. Football is something they really seem to enjoy. I cringe at the thought of tackle football and am thankful they are happy to just play flag football! Next year Thomas will be old enough to join them on the field, I am not sure how I feel about that!

Pumpkin Patch: Family Tradition, 2011



It's our family tradition to go to Don's Pumpkin Patch every autumn. This year, my mom, sister Heather, brother Don and son Alex, and sister Donna, son John, and grandson Taylor joined us. We had a blast in the corn maze, actually found all six scarecrows, found three lovely pumpkins and ended with supper at McDonalds!

My BIG Boy!



My baby learned to ride his bicycle! TJ asked me to take off the training wheels of his bike and just like that he was riding! I am so impressed with how quickly he understood the concept of riding his bike. There was no training involved, simply, the training wheels came off and he was off! I am so proud of you Thomas! You are growing up so fast!

Soccer Season 2011

Another amazing soccer season for the Parker boys! Next year will be insane, Ashton will be in U12, Jackson U10, and Thomas-Jensen will be in U8. Ashton and Jackson will both be travelling and Thomas will not. So a great deal of juggling to do! But, soccer is awesome, so it will be well worth it!
