Halloween 2016...

Halloween is probably my least favorite holiday, but the kids sure love it. Kate dressed up as a baby, Zach re-used his blue skin, Preston wore his "First Halloween" sleeper, and Ryan decided he would be a construction worker for the ward trunk or treat, and a fireman for trick or treating. I decided I would join the fun for our ward trunk or treat and went as a mouse. 

One of Ryan's friends, Claudia, had a cute little Halloween party, the day of Halloween, to help us get into the spirit, which was fun. With having Preston I admit I lacked enthusiasm to make this Halloween memorable for my kids, so I am grateful for Claudia's mom, Nicola, making up for it. She had cute treats, games and crafts for them to do. It takes a village!

Lakeview Farms and Plumper...

I love this time of year! I love the tradition of going to Pumpkin Patches, and the crisp air that forces us to put on our favorite jeans, sweater and boots. It's the beginning of a long string of holidays and parties. What's not to like? This year I took the littles to Lakeview farms with Ryan's pre-school class and then later in the month we went to our favorite neighborhood pumpkin patch with our cousins Christian and Brooke. Ryan was loving the tractor ride! Preston slept for most of the time and Kate was off on her own running wild. There is nothing better than taking your kids to places where most of your responses are Yes, let's go!, Wow! So Fun!

Kate's 9th Birthday...

Kate is 9! This girl loves birthdays and loves gifts and all the attention that comes with it. But since it is an odd year we kept with tradition and had a party with just the family. She was thrilled about her Ivivva Jacket(the latest trend in clothing is Athleisure wear)! Kate's favorite color is Turquoise, she loves to make up dances with her friends, loves Mac and Cheese, Tomatoes and Sea Weed, dances, plays soccer and is one of my best helpers around the house. We love you Kate!
