My mom, my sister and I took the girls to see Pinkalicious. This was Kate's first musical and she loved it! It ran for a little over an hour which was perfect. She has asked to go see it again and every time we get on the freeway she states, "This is how you get to Pinkalicious!" Her favorite color is no longer's now Pink. Kate has not been into pictures lately and gets all embarrassed about it, but I managed to bribe her for a couple.

Fall 2011...

Our entire fall consisted of soccer, soccer, did I mention soccer? 5 out of the 7 days in a week, over the past two and half months, Zach had practice or a game, and two games on Stuardays...just sayin'. Justin had Zach in two leagues this fall, which lets be honest, I was worried about. I was worried that he would have melt downs about having to go to practice because he was tired, get hurt for playing in a second grade league, etc. I could not have been more wrong. There is something about having a goalie and a larger playing field that motivated Zach to try his best! Kick and chase was fun too, just not as challenging. I played the role of the chauffeur, minus the SUV soccer mom thing, Kate played the cheerleader, a cute one I might add, and Justin was the co-coach for both teams. Zach had a great season, scoring a few goals here and there, survived without any injuries, and loved playing with all his buddies from school, especially Nate.

Halloween 2011...

October was packed with Halloween Festivities. We hit up the Plumper Pumpkin Patch a couple of times, once to play with all the cousins, and another to pick out our pumpkins. This farm is awesome and every year they add something new. This year it was the hay bale slides. The pic below shows you how obedient Kate is these days, not to mention the little Diva attitude she has to boot! This pose is all her doing, there was no "coaching" involved on my part.

Justin and I were invited to an Adults only Halloween Party. The theme was MTV's VMA's, so we decided to appear as Snooki and Pauly D. Obviously Justin pulled this one off much better than I did. I am as white as they come. I think I need a little more junk in thrunk and some cushion, if you know what I mean. The party was so much fun, as you can see Fergie, Marie Osmond, Justin Beiber, Snoop, Cyndi Lauper, Usher, Bono, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, KISS, Britney Spears, and Elvis were also there, just to name a few.

Grandma and Grandpa threw a little Halloween party for the kids. The kids bobbed for apples, ate donuts off of a string, decorated cookies and had a fun time dressing up in all their costumes. It's always fun when Grandma and Grandpa do it up big.

And of course tonight was fun too! We live behind Ironwood, a neighborhood that gives out the "big" candy bars at Halloween, so Zach(a clone trooper) and Kate(Cinderella), were in heaven hitting up all those houses this year.
