Thanksgiving 2011

We had a great Thanksgiving in Colorado.
After all the food, we went out and hung all the Christmas lights and decorated the tree. The boys were super excited to have Grandma Hutton in for the holiday and to help decorate.

That's right, we are expecting a new addition to Team Hutton.

The baby is due in late April. Ryder & Taggart are both excited to welcome a new little brother or sister. We do not yet know the sex of the baby but will find out soon.

Autumn in Colorado

The boys are loving Autumn. Besides playing sports and being outside, they now appreciate how much fun an Autumn pile of leaves may be.

Ryder actually requested the rake a couple of times so he could pile the leaves back up. Tagg on the other hand takes pleasure in destroying the pile.

Ryder's Basketball Game Week 1

Ryder has moved on to basketball. 
He is actually tall for 5 but is one of the younger kids on the team. Regardless of his height, his ball handling skills enable him to bring the ball up the court. Once past mid-court he seems more interested in avoiding any and all defenders. The game starts to resemble a point guard trying to run the clock out as he dribbles all around rarely looking at the hoop. He will pass but follows his pass as if to ask for the ball back. Upon receiving it back, he starts the process over. On defense, he is tireless. He has a couple of steals and even a blocked shot to go along with a few fouls from running through and over some of his opponents. He is having fun and we are all enjoying watching.

Ryder ended his Fall Soccer season today. The Arvada Edge Soccer Rockers had a great season. We are extremely proud of Ryder as he learned a great deal, demonstrated sportsmanship and tried his best each and every game.

Ryder and Taggart enjoyed picking their pumpkins...Taggart chose the largest one he could find but had some difficulty actually picking it up.

We were so excited to have Papa Leveque visit for Halloween. He showed the boys his pumpkin carving skills.
Thor (Ryder) and Race Car Driver (Taggart) were eager to collect as much candy as possible.
