Holy moly, my boys have a lot of Martineau cousins! We get together the day after Thanksgiving each year with all of Eric's siblings. What a fun time for our kids, when they get to hang out with all their cousins!

The kids all get to open a gift (pajamas)! Half of them end up wearing them the rest of the day because they are so excited!

Yep, my boys had to wear their new pajamas too!

Turkey Trot

This Thanksgiving we ran the Turkey Trot again. We normally run this race as a family (it is a day to be with family after-all), but this year, I left my sweet husband behind. Eric pushed the boys in the jogger and I ran ahead. I finished the 6.2 miles in 47 minutes 52 seconds and Eric finished in 110 minutes. And even though it was a hot and miserable November day (81 degrees), our boys did awesome!

Full Moon

Pace was reaching to get an apple slice off the counter and...... a full moon! Priceless!

Field Trip

Today, I was able to go on a field trip with Pace and his fellow preschoolers to Superstition Farm. These are a few of the pictures I took while I was there.

From left to right..... Pace, Kayla, Tommy, Brayden, Lizzie, and Grant

Going through the hay maze.

We got to hold this friendly chicken.

The kids took turns feeding the horses, carrots, but Pace was too afraid. We just stood for a picture instead.

He wasn't too afraid to brush the goats....

..... or pet the rabbits.

We ended with a hayride to see all the cows (we even saw a baby cow that was only 1 hour old; and the mom had the umbilical cord still hanging out, she hadn't delivered the placenta yet).

All in all, it was a great time!

Our Halloween this year was spent at Disneyland! We had a great time at Mickey's Trick or Treat Party!

What a good-lookin' family, don't ya think?

Cade was a green monster.

Pace was Max from 'Where the Wild Things Are' and Eric was a Monk.

I love this picture of my boys!

My sister Carrie, the mobster.

My sister Jennifer and her kids. We don't see them often, so it was so nice to spend time with them at Disneyland.

So, little Kyra isn't showing in this picture, but I had to post this one because Brandon looks so good! The following picture includes Janae's little girl too.

My mom was there too! Not dressed up, but so glad she was there.

Brian, Brooke, and Ryah as Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles Flintstone.

This was the only shot we got of our kids in front of the castle. Oh well, at least you can tell Pace had a fun-filled time!
