jayden brown is coming to town!

"jayden brown is coming to town"
by Rebecca Miller

...we want to see him when he's sleeping, and play when he's awake.
he knows that he's been really good so come visit for goodness sake.

oh you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout i'm telling you why,

what a happy thanksgiving!

this thanksgiving was one of the best ever. although it was weird not being home and around a million family members, it was fun to host our very first ever thanksgiving dinner. we were lucky enough to have quinn's family fly all the way from boise out here and spend the holiday with us. i had fun decorating and making all sorts of foods i'd never made before and quinn loved cooking his first turkey (which was the best and juciest i've ever had). we didn't want quinn's family to leave (especially jayden who was held literally the entire time) but it was comforting to know that we will see them in two weeks for the christmas break.

waiting patiently for the fam to arrive

the fun arrives!

with quinn being the young men's president, we happen to have a whole lot of paint ball guns in our garage, so after thanksgiving dinner, joe, quinn, joel, and our friend j.d. went into the woods behind our house and played for a while. other than j.d. getting hit in the face by quinn, there were no real injuries. thank goodness.


coco always knew how to make jayden laugh

joel did a fantastic job at putting jayden (and himself) to sleep

grandpa has the magic touch

grandma not letting go of jayden right before leaving and pleading to take him with her. i'm sure j-dog wouldn't mind.

here's a little video to show jayden's cute little laugh
