Hey all! I was sitting here last night thinking about what I wanted to do with my kiddos this weekend when it hit me, we only have a few more good weather weekends to play, get stuff done, whatever. So.. Outside it is! I have made a list of some fun ideas of things to do with your fams, pick one or two and enjoy! P.S- We would LOVE to see pictures of your fun family outing! See ya Monday!
1- So.. This one is indoors but.. buy the time everyone gets home from work its almost dark anyways so why not go watch the weber state men's basketball game tonight! Its a fun and cheap way to get out of the house with your family! The kids LOVE it and the team LOVES the support!
2- Go on a hike! Check out the leaves, find some rocks or pinecones. My littles LOVE to go and explore different places and you can get some pretty cute pictures! Here's a list of hikes in Ogden you could check out!

3- This one isn't as fun but.. Sometimes that's the case! Do some yardwork. Pull weeds, Mow the lawn, Clean the garage or even put up some Christmas lights while its not snowing! At the end reward yourselves with a night by the fire. Make some hot dogs and roast some marshmallows.
4- My kids FAVORITE fall activity... Jump in the leaves!! Its really two birds with one stones kind of a thing! You get your leaves raked up and your kids are happy! Now that is a double whammy!

Hey guys! For some people November means a number of different things.. No shave November, Football, Food, Shopping etc.. For me it means most of those things and some! Above all it means gratitude. I know I should be grateful everyday,365 days a year but.. I'm not perfect so before the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I like to remind myself of everything and everyone I'm thankful for. Last year I tried to involve my family however I wasn't very committed which means I wasn't very successful. If you know me then you know that failing isn't an easy thing for me to handle. So.. this year I'm making a priority for my family to participate in the 30 days of November challenge. What that means is everyday whether it be morning or night I will sit down with my family and we will all take turns saying what we're grateful for. My hope at the end of this challenge is that my family can be humbled by how blessed we really are! I realize we are a few days into November, better late then never though right?! Now my challenge for my favorite families. In these next few weeks take a few minutes out of everyday to sit with your family. Talk about your days good or bad and before you finish take turns saying what your grateful for. Hopefully come thanksgiving we will have witnessed a change in the hearts and attitudes in our homes and we will be able to celebrate thanksgiving for what it really is. Here are a few ideas for the challenge, I hope you can find one that will work out for you and your family! Till next time...
Love, Your CC Blogger
