We're BIG Chiefs fans these days!!

 Last weekend was the Billings Family Thanksgiving Day!  We had a blast eating Turkey, yummy mashed potatoes, homemade stuffing, awesome cranberry salad, and all the rest of the fixins!  We  got to spend some time playing with our niece and nephew outside because the weather was gorgeous!  After the meal we watched football, played some bball and threw the football in the backyard.  We are very fortunate to have such loving families.  

Next week we head East to celebrate our second Thanksgiving!!!  Whoo hoo!  We will drive to Hartville, OH on Tuesday evening and hopefully it will take us close to 15 hours (max!).  It always snows in Ohio over Thanksgiving, so pray for good driving weather!  We will be meeting my parents and my brother and sister-in-law, and all of my Yoder relatives.  Phil, my little bro, is still studying overseas in Morocco and will come home in December!  Which we are all very excited to see him and hear all about his adventures.  (and knowing him, he'll have MANY crazy stories)

This week Aaron put up our christmas lights on the front of the house around the the porch.  It looks so beautiful all lit up at night.  I am very excited to continue the holiday celebrations in the next couple weeks.

Danielle, my sister-in-law, took some great family pictures while we were in Garden City, KS.  Enjoy the Chiefs pictures!  Casey wore the jersey for under 5 minutes, but he filled it out very well.  The last picture I added just for fun because it really shows how he filled out the jersey :)  We'll use a picture or two on our Christmas card, so get excited for that to come in the mail in the next month!

Such good lookin men!!!

I loved the black and white!


Happy Thanksgiving!!  We love you all!

Our small family is staying busy these days!  We've had some fun times with friends, watching football, shopping with family, and enjoying time together!  This past weekend Aaron's sister's family came to visit and we got to go shopping :)  Need I say more?  I haven't been out shopping like this in awhile, so I was excited!  We found some great decorations at Hobby Lobby!  Aaron had previously installed these shelves and they have sat empty for a few weeks.  Do you like how we each took a shelf to decorate?  I sure love it!

On Saturday morning Aaron decided to rake the leaves in our front yard and gather them up!  We had fun doing this big job together.  The trees in our front yard are huge and we still haven't raked the back yard.  Yikes!

 I just love it when we get to play with Logan and Makenah!!
Aaron was teaching Logan how to fly a plane on the IPad.  Logan's big stuff these days!  He answers questions so cute and he totally understands what we are saying!  Adorable!

Uncle Bear is so loved!

Last night (Sunday), we went to see Brian Regan perform in Wichita!  He is a comedian and was hilarious! For both of us, this was our first time going to see a comedian.  Oh boy did we enjoy ourselves!
