Halloween 2013

 About 3 weeks ago, while shopping at Walmart, and listening to the pleadings of our children, I finally said, "Nope...I am not doing it...There is a whole bin of Costumes in the playroom...We will be creative and use what we've got"...
Well, 1 week later, I caved...I felt guilty for not wanting to be creative so we dug in and made some costumes...Cute ones if you ask me...And we used most of what we already had
Rebekkah - little Red Riding Hood
Kaden - an evil Purple Minion
Lizzy - little Red Riding Hood (but here she is pictured as a little minion)
Dustin - a yellow minion although he also decided to be a wizard, and then a power ranger, and then a storm trooper, and then a wizard again, and get the picture...Luckily we had enough costumes in the bin to fit his changing wants...
I have to admit that it was fun...although our kids had very little interest in Trick or Treating Halloween Day...After 2 Trunk or Treats this week & their classroom parties and hitting a few homes, they preferred to just watch a Halloween Movie...I had no problem with this...I'm really not a big fan of staying out really late and being spooked...I also preferred the nice quiet evening with our family

Quick bean bags... Ha

I planned to make simple bean bags that would take seriously ten minutes this morning...they had fun...but I way underestimated... this pumpkin toss was One that a Lady in our ward
Asked for help on a number of years ago...Since our ward no longer Does the festival, I ended up with It...I am Happy to share or give It to anyone that would like to have It. I rrally dont know what else to do with it.. so for now, we will use It for clases parties and fun today...

Cousin Trunk or Treat 2013

Grandma and Grandpa Snow
Kaden(evil minion), Claire(pioneer), Camrie(Alice in Wonderland), Bekkah (little red riding hood), Madison(Poodle Skirt) and Dustin (our wizard) 
Lizzy (our little red riding hood) had a late nap so she was a bit grumpy at first... After a yummy dinner, she quickly warmed up to the Trunk or Treating part...

Every day after we drop Dustin off to Kindergarten, Lizzy loves to take her sweet time walking Home...She loves to look up at the trees and watch the leaves fall.  She beckons for me to sit by her on the curb, numerous times just to admire the sky and the leaves gently falling to the ground. Fall is wonderful!

Lizzy was in the piano room saying "cheese!" Over and over... She wanted a picture taken all by herself in different poses...

I'm so Glad when Daddy comes Home!

Ryan is such a wonderful Father!  The kids always look forward to when he comes and so do I!

Bee Sting?!

Bekkah wasn't too disappointed When the doc told her she needed to stay home and keep her bee Stung foot up (along with some meds)...I feel like we just did this...
