Wow...where has the time gone? 3 full months without posting? Busy, busy busy!
For Halloween, Chris took The Hulk (Peyton) and Belle (Maddy) out trick or treating around the neighborhood. They then came back and handed out candy to the trick or treaters that stopped by our house. I should clarify, Peyton handed out candy. Maddy had a break down and went to bed early!
Since Halloween was on a weekday this year, we took the kids trick-or-treating early (over the weekend) to the grandparents house. Peyton wanted this Mario costume so bad I was surprised he wore his Hulk costume on Halloween.
In October one of our friends got married. I was honored when she asked for my help that day. We shipped off the kids and I spent most of the day at the outdoor wedding location helping get ready. Her mother in law has in insane knack of party set up, home decor, etc. This was the kitchen (later on filled with food, I was too sidetracked to take pictures later on...haha!). The night was finished off with my fave band playing live, dancing and a bonfire!
At the end of October we took our first every siblings vacation. Chris, his brothers and their wives and I took off to Vegas for a couple of days. SO.MUCH.FUN! I can't wait to take a siblings trip again! This was also Chris's and my 10 year anniversary trip! Yep...10 years! :-0 Can you believe it? Neither of us can! Haha!
Chris was able to attend a few OSU games this year. Peyton really wanted to go to one, we only had one possible weekend that he could go! :-0 Like I said, busy busy! So we took off as a family to the game. Maddy put on a show at Fred Meyer's while getting some tail gate food and rain ponchos.
Maddy and I enjoyed a little tailgating before the game with Peyton and Chris then took off for the hotel while Chris and Peyton went to the game. Peyton made it one quarter before coming back to the hotel! :-0 In his defense though, it was cold, wet and windy! NOT a good combo!
Peyton lost his first tooth! I was quite disappointed it fell out while we were gone. But Mema (my mom) made sure the tooth fairy left him a extra special surprise! The picture below is of the wiggly tooth not too long before it fell out.
The whole family was able to make it to Portland to meet up with my on-line friend Karen for the first time! SO much fun! I really wish we lived closer as the kids had a lot of fun together and so did us adults! We didn't get a posed picture of all the kids together but this one cracks me up! They were having so much fun playing around!
The kids had a lot of fun playing Go Fish on New years...
We have a new thing of "I Love You" in sign language.
New years in pj's, snowboots and hats....haha!
Well if you made it to the end, congrats! :-) Thank you for stopping by! I was able to pump out a few layouts before starting my room-by-room cleaning. An attempt to purge then deep clean one room a day. So far I'm not keeping my one room a day schedule. But I'm still working at it! Hopefully I will sneak a few minutes to share my layouts!
