Overview of October (finally!)

We found this amazing place last year where you take a hayride out to pick your own pumpkins I think we will do it this way every year!

Cyndi and her kids came out with us

Grandma Lynn came too!

Joshua drove the tractor home (on the guys lap of course)

Then it was carving time!

Gabe will eat anything!

William with his spider

Mike (our friend) baby eating pumpkin

Shoot...I guess you can't really see Josh's. His was half happy and half sad.

Gracey (our angel) taking a few steps at the ward Christmas party
Harry Potter and....Fire guy I guess
The happiest little devil ever!!

Who is always up to no good!

Trick-or-treating with Mike

Sorry the writing is so brief and not too many detail, but i wanted to get the pictures posted so that our Alaska family could enjoy and see what we have been up to!

Our not so little man, was born October 29, 2005
He was born two weeks early weighing 9 lb 2 oz!!

After the first 24 hours he became harder and harder to wake up. The admitted him to the NICU for some testing and learned he had an infection of some kind and started a treatment of antibiotics and IV's.

Will was also quite Jaundice so they placed him under the lights while he was there

After 3 days in the NICU he was able to come home, but for 3 weeks he remained on the lights at home. Everyday for three weeks we had to drive him to the hospital to have his blood drawn til the jaundice finally went down

Joshua was so thrilled to be a new big brother!

This is Will at 3 weeks!

And this is our precious boy today at 4 years old!

For his Birthday we envited friends and family to come celebrate!

Will specifically wanted cupcakes with sprinkles!

We served fresh Alaska Halibut chowder and Chili made with Jared's moose he caught!

William is an amazing little boy. Full of creativity and love of life. There is never a dull moment with Will! He loves to dance and sing "original" songs, but still wants to kick your butt at a came of swords!
We love you so much and can't imagine a life without you!
Happy Birthday!!!
