Happy Birthday to Ashton!!!

We celebrated Ashton's birthday on November 7th.  I know that his birthday hat says the 6th, but that is the one that the school gave him.  The Miner Family was visiting that weekend, so we had a little party.  Ashton loved every minute of it!  He is now 6 years old! 

We absolutely love Ashton!  Some of his favorite things to do are:
1.  Spend time working with his Dad.  Ashton loves to work in the garage building things with Ben. 
Even if Ben is cleaning and organizing, Ashton is right there.
2.  He loves doing math in school.  Especially his "mental math".
3.  He loves us to read his scriptures to him every night and he will remind us if we forget.
4.  He loves to practice his drums that Uncle John is letting us borrow while he is on his mission.
5.  He loves to eat eggs every morning! 
6.  He is a great student!  His teacher told me how thankful she is for Ashton because one of the kids that gives her trouble is now being great all because Ashton talked to him.  Ashton just told him to do his work and pay attention.  The influence of others...:)
7.  He loves to run around and play with his brothers.
8.  He is great at holding and taking care of Lacey.
9.  He gives the best hugs and always makes sure I get a hug and a kiss on the cheek before he goes to school.
10.  Ashton is thoughtful, silly, full of energy, loving, caring, good at building, fun to be around and a great kid!  We love you Ashton!

Catch Up-Halloween

Here are a few pictures of our Halloween Costumes:
Me-I was a punk rocker.  I had fake Eyelashes on and boy were they heavy!
 I just wanted to close my eyes and fall asleep!
Caleb-a rodeo clown, and a good one at that!
Carson-a circus clown.  Another night he dressed up as a doctor.
Calvin-a dragon
Ashton-a ninja of some sort.  Another night he dressed up as a mad scientist.
Devin-a nice shark.
Lacey-a pixie fairy.  So cute!
Ben-he was a rocker with a mohawk, but there are no pictures.  So sad...

(5 boys + 1 girl) x 2

I know that some people think that it is crazy that we have five boys right in a row and so fun that we now have a girl.  But my cousin, Janelle, did the exact same thing.  She had five boys and then within months of me having Lacey, she had a girl as well!  So we had a Reed dinner a few weeks ago and decided to take a picture of all the kiddos, moms and dads. This was last minute, so we are not dressed up in any way.  (In fact, our family just drove straight to the dinner after going camping, so we were flithly!) 

What a good looking group of boys...and girls!

"Ashton is Smart"

Ashton brought home a paper of work he did at school.  It was an addition paper.  At the bottom of the page there were "counters" you could cut out to help you with the adding.  Ashton didn't cut his out and just did all the math in his head.  On the paper his teacher wrote "Ashton did it all with mental math"  and "Way to go Ashton!".  Well, he was so excited that he had to show everyone and tell them that he did mental math and finished way before everyone else, and then he put it on the refrigerator.  Later, he came up to me and said "Mom, why didn't Mrs. Adolph just write on the paper, "Ashton is smart"?  Haha!  The confidence of a child!
