Halloween Party

Yesterday we had a family halloween party. It was lots of fun. First we had our costume contest- Mike and me won. Then we were sent on a scavenger hunt around the neighborhood to collect things- Kasi, Brady and Melanie won. Then we had a pumpkin carving contest- Steph and Jon won. Then we went to Pizza Factory all dressed up. And then last we played a scary/fun game of Sardines:) We had our fill of Halloween for sure! We will take Olivia trick or treating tomorrow but I am not going to dress up.

Newsie, Hollywood star, Sherriff, Witch, Pooh Bear, Elizabeth Swan, Jack Sparrow, Raja-the tiger, Doll, Scary Ghost from Scream 4, Dead southern belle, Jasmine- Who is who?

Mike and me tied for best costume(s)- we had a neighbor judge all of us

We didn't use the top hat for a costume but Olivia sure looks cute wearing it:)

Halloween Fun

We haven't carved pumpkins yet, but we will. Olivia and me made some homemade baking clay today and started to make some halloween crafts:

Hocus Pocus Spell Book- (we will glue it onto a book)

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1-11/2 cups cold water
2 tbsp veg. oil
bake at 300' for an hour or until golden brown or as hard as you want- We cooked ours just over an hour.-they came out white not how it looks in the picture. And then we colored them.

We also made a witch hat and a witches wand. And I think we just about have everyone's costumes figured out but Im not going to say what we all are yet- even though I have mentioned Olivia and Korver.

Hint to one of our (Mike's or mine) costume:

Little Angel?

So I know Olivia looks like the sweetest little angel:)
But latley these are some of the things she has done:
1. decided that her baby doll needed to go swimming, so to make a swimming pool she opened a bottle of water and poured it all over the couch
2. she still steals Korver's binky
3. if she doesn't like where Korver is laying she grabs his arm and pulls him where she wants him to go
4. she loves dumping out the formula and stiring it around, whether it be in the sink, or on the floor
5. loves to draw on anything and everything
6. loves to put on lotion- the whole bottle
7. eat Korver's teething tablets
I could keep on going....
... oh the joys of parent hood:)

Happy Fall!

Happy Fall!

Monday, October 24, 2011


So we made a really quick trip to San Diego last weekend. My parents, Melanie, Kasi, Me, Olivia, Korver and Kye. It was such short notice so Mike couldn't get work off. It was to show my Grandma the grandkids. We left Wednesday and drove straight through to Cali- arrived at around 2 in the morning and then we left Sat. Morning. So really quick. The car ride was horrible- 8 people stuffed in a 7 seat van- we put an extra seat in the middle of the van. The kids are so sick of being in their car seats. Well on Thursday it was quite cold:(. We still went to the beach. Olivia's first time, and she loved it! My Grandma was so happy to see us. So on Thursday we didnt stay very long at the beach, we mostly hung out around my Grandma's house.

On Friday it got way warm...yay! We visited family and played at the beach! Korver loved the sand too! Olivia had fun throwing sea shells back in the ocean. We also spent part of the day at Coronado- love that place! The trip was too short but had so much fun. Mike and me will plan to go back since he hasn't been to San Diego but we will fly...:)

First time looking at the ocean

Goofy Boy

She had fun running away from the water- she did play in it though

Our Family Update

So a little update on what's been going on: Korver is 5 months- He is the cutest thing! All smiles:) So easy to make laugh. He is starting to teeth so he does have his grumpy moments- its messing with his bedtime so I try to let him sleep as much during the day. He hasn't really lost any hair, just went a little thin on the sides but he has all of it still:) He is starting to sit up on his own. Ill be sure to sit right behind him or put pillows in case he does fall but he is just growing so fast. And getting cuter everyday!
Olivia- is a little stinker! But an adorable one:) She is talking so much more lately. She still likes to steal Korver's binky. Sometimes I feel like she is ready for potty training and so some days you think she will go on the toilet- she knows what its for at least- and then maybe we just need to get a little toilet for her. ( I don't think I'm ready to really start training her) She is such a little goofball though I love it! I love these ages with my kids~ I don't want them to grow up. I just love how much Olivia loves me and wants to be with me. I don't want it to go away.
I have been busy playing with my kids, making crafts and taking pictures. I am really excited that I am really getting into photography more.
Mike has been really busy with work. He is such a hard worker. We don't do a lot during the week since lately he comes home late, so we do things at home. Olivia has been daddy's girl lately.
Here is one craft we did about a month ago- I just didn't post pictures:
I had been looking for a desk or something for my crafts and I found this "Hutch" at the D.I., Bought some paint( my two favorite colors right now- turqoise/teal/aqua and coral), and Mike painted it. He did an awesome job! I painted the white (damask) on it. Later on I might buy different knobs for it.
