Happy Halloween!

Did you all have a nice Halloween!!!?

We did!

We took the kids out Trick or Treating for a while, and we left a bowl of candy at our house by our pumpkins with a note on it to take 2 pieces! (We weren't sure if some kids might come take the whole bowl!) But, we came back to a completely full bowl of candy! We dont have an outside light, just a light inside our porch, so it is kinda hard to tell if we are "participating" and there are not many kids on our street anyway and the kids I do know of, don't celebrate Halloween. So I figured we wouldnt get too many people :( But don't worry! We came back early enough so we could let the kids pass out candy at our house too! I thought it would be fun for them to get to do both. We only had like 3 kids/pairs of kids stop by but Kinzie thought it was a blast getting to give them candy! When we took her out Trick or Treating she told everyone to come to our house too, so they could take some of our candy! It was cute. Malichi was being shy though, and didn't want to pass out candy at our house. Here's a couple of pics from tonight:

Cute aren't they!?

So...rewind back to Saturday. Kinzie started gymnastics! She LOVED it! She did awesome! It is 45 minutes long and she listened the whole time to her teacher, and did just what she was supposed to! She is getting to be such a big girl! She watched carefully as the other kids took their turn, and then when it was her turn she knew what to do! Like on the bars, she watched the other kids do a flip, and she got up there, and just did it like she knew what she was doing!!! It was so awesome! I am so proud of her! Here's some pics from that:

And of course, Mr. Malichi was doing his own gymnastics while we waited!

Malichi asked Grandma Carolyn to make him a sweater. He wanted it Black and Orange. And I think originally with a tiger on it or something! SO he got his sweater on saturday, and he wore it all day! He was pretty excited about it.

..took the kids bowling last week too. Man we have had a busy week.


And apperently Kinzie's ball didn't quite do what she wanted it to!

And on Monday we carved our pumpkins!

Well.. I guess thats about all for now! We had a busy and fun week, with lots of festive Halloween activities!

Happy Birthday Spifferz!

Happy Birthday to my sis Tiffany! I hope you are having a GREAT day! Love ya girlie!

We are back from a wonderful weekend back home. We went down on friday night after Aaron got off work, and spent the night at my mom's.
Saturday morning we went out to mineral springs to take some pictures.
Being there reminds me of when Aaron and I were dating back in High School.
It was "our" place.
We'd have picnics out there. And go swinging.
I remember one time we went out there in the winter and we sat there in the snow kissing while it was freezing outside! But I seem to remember the cold wasn't bothering us too much!
I remember when we called Christa while we were sitting on the big hill out there, and told her we were at the park and that I was in labor with Malichi! (I wasn't...we just thought it would be funny to get her all excited I guess!)
We had both of the kids' blessings and 1st birthday parties there!
I hadn't been out there in so long, and it was nice to be back there!

I made my mom tag along so she could take some family pictures of us! And I must say she did a pretty good job! Of course these aren't straight out of the camera, I played with them a bit, but I love how they turned out! And we got so lucky with the weather! It was the first day it did NOT rain in I don't know how long, and it ended being a gorgeous day! Perfect for a photo shoot!

So...let's get on with it already... Here are a few from the day:

In the afternoon I did a senior photo shoot for one of my best friends' brothers. It went great! I haven't had time to go through all of the pictures, but I think we got some really nice ones! I HOPE they will like them! :) I'll share some of the photos later!

Then in the evening, we had a Halloween Party/Birthday party (for me and tiff). Lots of fun! Randy made wild rice soup and we had cake...that me and Tiff got our faces smashed into, and then we went over to the school across the street and played some Halloween games! The kids had a blast!

And if you didn't already know how SHORT I will now see....

After the party we went to the haunted cornmaze (withOUT the kids). And you just might remember my blog post from LAST year when we went and I found out how deathly afraid of chainsaws I am! Well I realized this year I am STILL deathly afraid of Chainsaws! Why I subject myself to this cruelty that my family gets such a kick out of...I have no idea?! This year just might be my last going to those...sorry guys!

Then we spend the day at Aaron' parents on Sunday. We had a nice relaxing day, and they had a little birthday party for me too! I was spoiled this weekend! The kids picked out cake and balloons and a card for me. It was so sweet.
The kids had fun painting with all of grandma's "professional"! They just love painting and doing art projects! I love that they love to be creative!

Soo... now that I have spend my entire afternoon blogging, I should get onto getting some unpacking done!

Have a great day everyone!

So..if I didn't already look like my mom and my two sisters, I sure do now! I went from long, sorta curly, and blond, to short, straight and dark! Quite a drastic change..but I think I like it! Change is good right?! And I donated my hair to Locks of Love!

What do ya think? Here is my "after" picture!
