Liam's Belly Button Hernia Surgery

Well, it's been a long time coming.... but the day finally came. Liam finally had his hernia operation today. Our nurses were very friendly and nice.

The experience was very good and we were impressed with the Lethbridge Regional Hospital. Mommy and Daddy were with him, of course little Hyrum came too because he is still a breast feeder.
Papa even stopped in after he was done his shift at work, and he gave Liam this hat. I think it was very comforting for Liam to have is Papa with him for a little while.

On his way to the surgery. He was nervous but brave.

After the surgery.... putting on a brave face.

He is not supposed to lift anything heavy or run around for a week. We'll see how that goes!

Chef Liam

For Cub's today Liam's troop had an Iron Chef competition. Liam chose to make a Christmas Cake. He did it all by himself, with some instruction from me. We video taped the whole thing. I think it turned out nice, and he said all the boys loved it and it even tasted good! Way to go Chef Liam!

Saje's Baby Shower

Crystal had her beautiful baby Saje's shower in Calgary so Mom, Grandma and I took a road trip up for it.

Saje is beautiful and wonderful. Crystal did a great job don't you think. So fun to have a little girl among us!

Hyrum was sick. He's still cute though.

Christmas Already? YES!

When we lived in the States we set up for Christmas on Thanksgiving. This year, in Canada, Thanksgiving is in October, setting up for Christmas on Thanksgiving here is, aparently, unforgivable, so I had to wait, but I couldn't wait very long, so I set it up on the 12th. I would have set it up on Hyrum's birthday, I've been told that Rememberance day is the first day you are aloud to do such things, BUT, I was to busy with a birthday party. So here it is now!

And the cats discovered it the very next day! ARGH!

2 cats! Oh no!

Happy 1st Birthday Hyrum!!!

Hyrum Madison turned 1 year old today! On 11/11/11! How cool is that? And did you see what time I posted this at? Yeah, I'm cool like that.
Cheyanne was our official cake decorator, and I think she did a fine job, don't you?

Hyrum wasn't to sure what to do with his cake at first...

...but he talked to his good friend Papa...

...and he figured it out...

...yup, he gets it...

...all over his face...

Happy Birthday Hyrum! We sure love you!

Alternate School

The homeschool program here has a special building class at the beginning of every month for kids age 7 and up. They let Ezra join a year early and they are super happy to have him, he does really well, as does Liam. They both love to go spend a couple hours out of their regular homeschool routine and get their hands dirty!
This month they "built" insects out of old food containers and learned about insects as well as doing their usual building project. Ezra's bug was old popcorn boxes and pudding containers for legs and eyes.

Happy Halloween Pancakes.

Halloween was amazing. We went out to Leavitt and did my old route. Beth Cahoon made her amazing popcorn balls, which I cannot stop eating. It was good to see everyone and I wish we could have been out there longer. We came into Cardston and did some of our ward boundaries. The boys had a blast and so did Bill and I.
