Happy Halloween!

Bailey had pre school this morning and her teacher asked if a few moms could help with all the fun Halloween activities planned. The kids made a spider bag (Painting their fingers black to make 8 legs) and decorating cupcakes, making a carmel apple and a cute spider book. Then they got to dress up as mummy's!

She looks a little bit like a nun instead of a mummy...oh well

Farewell for 18 months!

My parents left this morning to Utah and will report to the MTC on Monday. It was a little sad to see them go since I am so close with my parents. My mom is one of my best friends and we do so much together that it will be an adjustment that they will be on the other side of the world when I need them. Oh well, I know that they will have a blast and be wonderful missionaries!

They also started a blog of their missionary experiences if you want to keep up with them.

A little early this year

We are starting the holidays a bit early this year. Last weekend we were bored so we headed to the local pumkpin patch/carnival with the kids. We all had a great time riding the hayrides, pony rides, picking pumkpins from the patch, going through the cornmazes and playing in the box full of corn kernals.

We all got to pick our own pumpkin...but the rule was that you could only get one that you could carry yourself...Nick found the perfect size!

After picking pumpkins from the patch, the kids were pretty worn out.

Tonight in Meridian, the police were doing a trunk or treat for the kids. They passing out candy from the trunk of their police cars. Bailey and Nick dressed up and went trick of treating! How fun, being that we still have two weeks before the BIG NIGHT of trick or treating...this was just a trial run !

My pouty little girl, luckily she snapped out of it soon

One of the policemen was giving out a free donut coupon from Krispy we had to stop by on the way home...this may have been Nicks favorite part of the night

Goodbye 30, Hello 31

Another year has come and gone. This year I had some awesome friends really take care of me. Two of my BFF's (Ashleigh and Keri) came in the morning and brought donuts and chocolate milk and we had a "mini" party.

That is an awesome giant cupcake holder!

Trent was able to take me to dinner, a movie and some frozen yogurt that evening. We saw Abduction and ate at Buffalo Wild Wings. It was so nice to have a nice "Date" away from the kiddos. And a shout out to my parents who watched the kids for us.

The next day I have to say was my favorite. Ashleigh signed us up for makeovers at MAC so we were able to get our makeup done and go for a shopping trip. After eating at Cafe Rio (yep there is one now in Boise)we headed to the mall and had so much fun.

After our makeovers...this is my Sassy look!

I came away with these bad boys for only $10 Dillards what a deal they were reg. $60! And I love wedges and high heels, so these will be great with a pair of jeans! I also got a few other bargains that made my day!

Thanks to everyone who made my turning 31 so much fun!!!
