Thanksgiving fun

What a fun Thanksgiving! We enjoyed spending time with Grandma and Grandpa, Deanne, Gohkan and Gamze, Brian, Heather, Bella and Maddie, Bart, Jed, Nommy, and Papa! Papa left the boat in the Carribean and flew home to be with us for Thanksgiving and will fly back next week to finish sailing to Jamaica. All the girls had matching frog pjs. So cute! We love spendng time with our family!

Halloween Costumes

I finally got my Halloween pictures up! Laura was the cutest pumpkin ever with funny pumpkin tights. She loved her pumpkin bucket! She and Joel trunk-or-treated at the ward party while I passed out candy and she told Joel, "Heavy!" Joel tried to carry it for her, but she didn't want that! She'd already seen his hand go into her candy bucket and eat her licorice, and knew that she didn't want any more of that! As I passed out candy, I put some in one boys bag and said, "Happy Halloween!" He looked up at me and said "You're mean!" His dad said, "No, she's nice, she just gave you candy." "No" the boy said, "She doesn't like dogs!" And then he started to cry! His dad quickly hurried him away to the next car. I thought, well kid, you're right! Why do you think I picked this costume?
Hope everyone had a fun and candy-filled Halloween!

Disney fun!

We went to Disneyland Monday afternoon with Tobin, Aubry, Aizlyn, Esppin and Ambria, who began in the morning. We had a fun time going on rides and spending time together. The parade was great fun as well! Espin was a HIT! We are happy we did the Give a Day of Service, Get a Disney Day and then got to turn those tickets in for a season pass! We are even more happy that since we moved from Victorville to Riverside we are now only 1/2 hour away! We are planning to go Mon or Tues of Thanksgiving week with cousins Elizabeth, Bella and Maddie!

CRAZY hair!

Laura's hair is getting so long! Especially after her nap it can get kind of crazy! She found my Cruella wig and wanted to put it in. Then she asked Joel, See? That means she wants to go to the bathroom and stand on the stool and see herself. We do a lot of "seeing" like when she is wearing a costume, has a tiara on, a pretty dress, etc. She is such a crack up!

Halloween Sunday Best

I love croched things! Remember that great pink dress Laura wore when she was about 6 months old? When I saw this peach dress for Laura, I HAD to have it! We're matchy-matchy in black tights, and orange crochet top! Halloween Sunday, here we come!

Carving the Pumpkin

Carving the pumpkin was a fun and messy business! I forgot to take a final picture once we were done though. It sat on the windowsill in the kitchen and Sunday morning when I walked into the kitchen it had fallen over in the night and smashed! So that night as we passed out candy we had to use the fake one.

The Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch and had a great time! We didn't get our pumpkin there though. After we left, we went to Stater Bros grocery and bought one for $2.27! The same one would have been $15 at the patch! We also bought 3 mini pumpkins for fun!

Sit down

When I am getting ready in the morning, Laura will come into the bathroom and say "sit down" even though I am already sitting, and will get her comb and crawl up on the edge of the stool to comb my hair. She'll also get her comb and come sit next to me on the couch and comb my hair. I tried to get her interested in combing Joel's hair, but since his is so short, it's not really as fun!
