We had our last pumpkin party on the 29th. We have been doing it for 10 years and we are just kinda done with it. So instead of carving pumpkins we are going to have a fun traditional Halloween party: costume contest, pinata, games, food. It will be awesome. Now back to our pumpkins...

The pumpkins

We had a pinata which was a lot of fun.
We started with the youngest and got to Jenna.

Look at Moo Moo and Cody trying to grab all the candy. Ha ha I love it.
Here are the kids (minus GiGi and Ryans kids) with Nana.

My lovely sisters and mother.

We had a lot of fun and we are excited to change it up and party next year!

Tonight Dan had to work, so I got to take the girls out. We just went around our complex. The crazies had so much fun and were so excited to help hand out candy when trick or treaters came to our house.

Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat

The girls had their fall festival at school. They got to dress up and play a lot of different games.

Tonight we had our ward chili cook off and trunk or treat. It was kind of a crazy night, but a lot of fun. The crazies had a blast running all over with friends, getting candy, and playing games. The chili was great and the haunted house was scary. We even decorated our car. :) Awesome night!!!

Springs Preserve

I found a great deal for Springs Preserve and couldn't pass it up. Friday we picked the girls up from school and headed over for some fun. The exhibit this month is all about poop. Yes poop! It was gross and somewhat informative.

They were also decorated for Halloween.

Ty didn't like the decorations at all.

We rode a train...

And a turtle...

And sat in the beautiful garden for awhile.

It was a great day!

When 9:30 rolls around I start getting pretty drowsy.
By 10:30 I'm completely out.

At 2:00am Dan finds me here instead of in my awesome bed.
Looks super comfy doesn't it?!

3 Months

How fast she is growing. It hasn't been that long, but it seems like she has been in our family for much much longer.
Today was not a cooperative picture day. At least I got one.

She is completely loved and even has had some fighting over who gets to hold her.
She has been stepped on a couple of times. Luckily she is a tough baby.
She is our biggest baby so far. Above 50%.
She smiles and talks constantly.
Sitting up is the only way to go for her, even though she isn't completely solid with holding her head up.
She definitely is our little blessing.
It is hard to think that I have that much more love to pass out, but it is there and I couldn't be happier!

Today was a special day for my baby GiGi. It was her blessing day. She looked pretty and was a happy and good baby all day.

And here is our awesome family of 6!!

And Dan and I with our baby!

We had a yummy lunch after and then we had to say goodbye to family. So sad to see them go.

I am so incredibly lucky to have GiGi in my life. She makes my days so much brighter. If I'm having a rough day I can ALWAYS look at her and she makes me smile. She truly is a blessing!!!

Weekend Fun

My family arrived into town on Friday. We were so excited to have them here. The last time we saw them all was in July, but it seems so much longer than that. Shai, Morgan, and Jenna stayed here at the house and Ryan and Mom and Dad stayed elsewhere. Needless to say it was a crazy few days, but I loved every minute.
Friday after people arrived we went to our favorite yogurt joint--U-Swirl. Then we just hung out the rest of the night.

Saturday was a pretty busy day.
We went to the Shark Reef.

We were trying to get a sibling pic. See that cute hand behind my head?

He got what he wanted.

Here we are.


The girls then had a soccer game. They are on a winning streak. Go Dragonflies!
Next we ate dinner and had a little birthday thing for Mr. Z and a surprise for Shai.

And then we attended (for a short while) the Outdoor Picture Show at the District. Most of the kids spent their time on the carousel instead of watching the movie.

Here is a random horsey ride that took place.

Oh, I love my family!!!

The dragonflies had their first game today. What fun it was to watch them run in little groups trying to score. We did win by one goal.

Go Dragonflies!!!
