Halloween connection

Ten bucks to the person that can guess our costumes and their relevance. Alright, I wont give you ten bucks but you will be praised as a person that is caught up on their current events.

Their awesome,right? I know.

We wore them to a halloween party over the weekend (it was awesome, Twilleys!), but we're pretty sure that only a couple of people got it.
I knew I should have pushed harder to have Chad spraypaint his hair black.(hint, hint)

We're going to try them again this weekend at our Trunk or Treat. I guess we'll see how it goes.

They must look alike

because nobody got it right. (Sarah did - but she just didnt post the comment)
Its actually:

Its funny that most people thought the first picture was Nathan. All of them do look a lot alike. Alison looks different everyday!
On another note...
I fit into a "new" pair of jeans today. It's small feats like this that make a day better.

Name that child

Thought it would be fun to play a little game. I have come to the realization that my children look a lot a like. Can you tell them apart? I purposely chose photos with no clothes to up the difficutly level :)

cooler temps and family fun

We wanted to do something fun for the afternoon, so we headed north to Payson for a little R and R. While we were there we took advantage of the nice scenery and took some family photos. Enjoy... and you might see one of the family shots in or Christmas card this year :)

These two pictures of Alison are classic. She loves to stretch like this. Its one of my favorite poses.

A day in the life...

Today has been interesting so far:
Caitlyn took care of Alison while I had a client over. I had Alison fed, and changed before my client arrived and instructed Caitlyn to give her the pacifier if she got sad - but that she should be fine.
When I came back in the room after my client left this is what I found
Caitlyn then proceeds to tell me everything she did. She fed her the rest of the bottle I had there in case of a hunger emergency, she changed Alison's diaper ( "All by myself!" was said about 50 times) and she had turned her over and was patting her back to help calm her down. She was so proud of herself and the care she gave Alison.
Nathan caught a frisbee with his mouth. Not on purpose. He insisted on a bandaid. I tried to put the bandaid on his upperlip, but he really wanted it on the exact location of the "owie" so he moved it to be partially inside his mouth.

This was taken yesterday, but dont we all wish we could take a nap like this. It looks awesome.

October break

Does anyone else think that this "October Break" thing is more for the teachers to have a break than the kids.

I mean, come on! They got out of school at 11:45 last Friday, then they have the entire week off, then next week they are released everyday at 1:15. Yes, I know its for Parent - Teacher conferences, but when you smush that all together it just seems like overkill to me. I would much rather follow the California school systems' schedule - at least Sacramento's, where my sister lives. They dont have October Break but they do get the entire week off for Thanksgiving. Dont you think that makes much more sense?

Where's the petition?!

My kids, especially Caitlyn, ends up bored looking for things to do all week. I would rather her be learning in school, and I believe she would too.

Sidenote - I am a great mom who has arranged a couple play dates and MAY attempt the Zoo on Thursday. I am trying to provide some sort of entertainment. - enter applause here -

So what are your thoughts on October Break?

What we did this weekend

Enjoy the following video and pictures. Seriously - get some popcorn... its pretty entertaining. (I dont know why but it seems to take a minute to appear on the screen... just wait - its coming)

Caitlyn is convinced that she looks different and that people are not going to recognize her. I assured her that it wouldnt be a problem. She is over the moon excited. The name of the earring is "Crystal Rainbow Daisy". It fits her perfectly. Each rinestone pedal is a different color.
