Faith for Noah Walk

"What an amazing day we had today! I feel so accomplished and so blessed. We participated in the St. Jude Give Thanks Walk today and I am proud to say that Team Faith For Noah was the #1 fundraising team in Utah! And I was the top fundraising individual in Utah. I couldn't have done it without all of my awesome friends and family who supported us in this fundraiser. Thank you thank you!"

On November 17, 2012 the Erickson did the St. Jude Give Thanks Walk to supported little Noah!
The kids had a lot of fun on the walk and we stopped to feed the ducks too.
Even Kallie walked some
They had a fire truck and Gracie got to climb the ladder.
This is Cory driving the back of the ladder truck.
And you can't forget Denny!
It was great and we had a lot of fun and I think the kids learned how giving sometime comes with some work.  We are thankful for being able to do this.

Fall

This is what happens for fall at the Ericksons house!

We got everything picked from the garden and got it clean out. The kids played with the chickens and the dog.
Kallie has to be right by us, but that makes it to hard to work sometimes. So we have her sit in her chair right by us.
She moves it around so that she stays right by us!
This is Denny playing soccer. His tongue out helps him kick better.
This is Cory with his chicken Jellybean.
This is Gracie with her chicken Eggwina and our dog Winnie.
By the end of the day the kids had fun and the garden was ready for winter.

Halloween

This year for Halloween the Erickson family did a theme:  Scary Clowns
 
 
This is the youngest Scary Clown Kallynn at 21months.  She went to what we call her "school" the daycare at the gym and they had a Halloween parade.  She was not sure about trick or treating at first and just stayed in the stroller.  But at the end she decided she wanted to give it a try.  She would not take her trick or treating bucket up to the door because she wanted to get the candy herself first and put it in her bucket by herself, she is almost two.

Here is Scary Clown number two Dennison Taft at 3.  He had a party at his preschool and they had a program and he did great.  You could not tell that he was the youngest one there.
Scary Court jester number one is Gracelyn at 8.  This year they got to wear their costumes at their Halloween party at school.  We fought for two years to get them to be able to wear them at school.  She had to look through her candy and check it right when she got home.  To make sure it was not opened, so it was safe to eat.  Thats Gracelyn!
The other Court Jester is Corwynn at 7.  He had a lot of fun acting like a scary Court Jester and liked his custom a lot.
Wynn's work sent him out of town for Halloween this year so he only got to wear he's costume at trunk or treat.  Wynn's parents Jan and Judy and Debbie, Andy meet us at La Choi's for dinner and then we went trick or treating with Debbie and Andy.  Jan and Judy gave out candy for me.  They were a lot of help and we had fun.
