Our Disneyland Trip

A few weeks ago we took our two oldest children to Disneyland and had a blast.  My 7 year old rode a number of rides for the first time including the Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain and Space Mountain.  My 10 year old also experienced a few rides for the first time.  It was his first time riding Indiana Jones and Screamin' in California Adventure.  We spotted a few characters along the way and let my daughter wait in line to see the princesses.  Here are a few pictures from the happiest place on earth.

We had so much fun and can hardly wait until our two youngest are old enough to take along.  I love seeing how excited the kids get, especially when they are experiencing everything for the very first time :)

Family Pictures

Last week we had my sister take some family pictures for us.  She did a fabulous job.  I love the way they turned out, they look great!  Thanks Ty! :)

Halloween Projects

My kids have loved helping me get ready for Halloween.  Here are a few of the projects we have been busy working on:  We started out painting some wooden blocks and of course Hailee and Jaxon wanted to help with the painting.

We turned the blocks into a mummy, Frankenstein, and a Jack-O-Lantern to go on our front table.

Here they are on our table:

We still thought the table needed a little something more, so we make a "SPOOKY" banner to drape across the front:

The last project, but not final project, I've been working on is a Smurfette Costume for my daughter.
Halloween is such a fun time of year.  It's always fun to see what the kids want to be for Halloween and see how excited they get for the holiday :)
