Happy Halloween!

Since we have already had three Halloween parties, I can show you the cute kids all dressed up! Here we are at a Donut Party. We had so much fun and the kids looked really cute! It's always fun showing off your costumes!
Here is a cute picture of Lauren sleeping on the couch. She put herself to sleep this time. She started laughing a lot and sucking her thumb this week. She looks so peaceful when she's sleeping!
Here are Lauren and Dylan watching daddy cut the pumpkin. Dylan always wants to be in the picture. He saw me taking pictures of Lauren and he jumped in there, too!
Here is a during the carving process. Dylan wouldn't touch the slimey stuff. He liked to slip the seeds out of his fingers, though.
What a cute family and pumpkin. We are starting traditions for our family!
He loved his pumpkin! Ricky took him to the street to look at the pumpkin and he said that it was scary. He started shivering. It was really cute!
At church, they had a party for the kids. Here are some of the cute little kids all dressed up! They had such cute crafts and games for the kids. Dylan had such a good time!
Since Lauren was dressed up, I asked one of the older girls to hold her. It was really cute since she was wearing the same costume! I guess Tinkerbell is a popular costume!
And here is my little Peter Pan and Tinkerbell! (this one's for you, Jenny!)
This morning, we had our little playgroup at our house. We made some spiders and ghosts out of suckers. They were a big hit! The kids all lined up along the wall and said cheese! How fun!
Then Daddy came home for lunch and got some good pictures. Thanks daddy!
I absolutely love her smile!
Check back next week to see more dressed up pictures! Hope you all have a great time trick-or-treating! Dylan is really looking forward to it this year!

Life gets in the way!

Look at our cute little girly sleeping. We have had a rough week here. Dylan got another ear infection and then Lauren got it, too. Luckily Dylan's wasn't too bad and he slept fine. Lauren, on the other hand, was not happy. She had a fever and was very uncomfortable. Poor girl. It's hard on everyone when the baby is sick.
We dog sat for my in-laws last week. Dylan loved having them here. (And no, we do not need a dog!) Since the weather was nice, I sent him outside with the dogs everyday to get some energy out. He usually has a love/hate relationship with Pepper, but this week they loved eachother.
I tried out the timer on my camera while we were playing. I think this picture turned out really well! I don't think I have many pictures of me and Dylan.
Daddy came home from work and brought Lauren outside. She was happily swinging in her swing, which she loves! (Thanks Heather! You are a lifesaver!)
Last weekend, my friend Jenny got married! Yeah! She was beautiful!

Daddy and Lauren at the wedding. She did such a great job at the reception and other than the blowout, the wedding too!

She decided to start early! J/K I know she'll be a great mom when the time comes! So pretty!
Dylan didn't get a nap that day, so he was really clingy. Jenny could still make him laugh! I love their faces in this shot!
Last week, we had some friends over to make cookies! They were so cute! Dylan was really excited and loved it! We'll have to do it more often, since it's getting too cold to go outside. We went to feed the fish yesterday and were freezing!
Dylan wanted to show off his cookie. He was so proud of them! Say cheese!
We are hopefully getting better around here! I really miss updating my blog more often! I guess life just gets in the way of things! I have a lot going on right now. I started a card exchange in my ward at church and I'm working with some other women to prepare our craft day the end on November. It is hard work, but totally worth it. It's been nice getting to know more people at church with this activity.
Ricky had a business meeting down in Indy earlier this week and got a hotel for the night. We decided to go down to spend the night with him, since he was so close. We got to go swimming and enjoyed a night away from our everyday life. It was really nice. Speaking of getting away, Ricky has a week off of work in November and we were going to try to get away for a few days. Any suggestions of fun, but cheap little getaways?

The Feast

Let's see what we've been up to! Dylan and I washed the van and the car the other day! I only got sprayed across my jeans twice! He had such a good time! (If you can't tell by his face in this picture!)Here is a picture of our van that I was supposed to post a long time ago! Life sometimes gets too busy! We are loving having a mini van! Dylan just stares out the window and tells me everything that he sees! It's really cute!
This past weekend we went to the Feast of the Hunter's Moon. This is Ricky's favorite event of the fall! This year we went early and didn't have to wait in long lines! Yeah! I guess we'll have to go early every year! My parents came up here to go with us and let Ricky and I go on a date! We went and saw 'Nights in Rodanthe.' It was really slow and a chick flick, so Ricky will be picking the next movie! It was really nice to get away from the kids for a little while! Thanks mom and dad!
Dylan got really tired at the Feast. Poor kid! He did, however, really enjoy the bus ride!
Lauren was really happy and gave us big smiles!
We are trying to go outside and enjoy the weather before it gets really cold! I've got to download some pictures of Dylan playing outside and then I'll post them!
