Quality time with Olivia

Last night Cam and I had so much fun with Olivia while trying to get her ready for bed. She ran away while changing her diaper and hid in her closet. She loved this game. She's a daddy's girl and loves her time with him.

We finally got her dressed and she insisted on feeding us from her play food. She refused to look at the camera because she was being a stinker. I love my little family, I love spending time with each of my kids and my husband. I'm so blessed to have them. Tonight made me realize how I just wish I could bottle up each little memory and never forget. I'm already forgetting what Olivia was like even 6 months ago. I'm grateful that I realize I need to enjoy every little bit of right now, soak it all up because my babies are growing and they are growing fast.

Austin's 9th Birthday

Austin is 9, I can hardly believe it! His party this year consisted of a lot of hyper boys in costumes and I got them dancing on video to Thriller. I'm sure that'll come in handy one day.

Austin's disgusting finger and eyeball cake he insisted on.

It's so nice to be in a place where Austin is making friendships that will last forever. I love all these boys and I'm so glad they are his friends.

Halloween Party

Cameron and I hosted our 2nd annual Halloween party in all our superhero glory. We love Halloween. It's the one time a year we can dress up and see our friends in their crazy creative costumes.
The spread at the party, and this isn't even all of it.

My cousin Lyndsey and her husband Josh. I think he made a creepy Willy Wonka. :)

Trent and Jamie. We had great fun with her Dodo Bird.

Jen as the cutest Indian ever.

Tyler and Deann. I love how creative they were.

Clint and Michelle, Clint actually dressed up.

Cam's cousin Amy and her husband Steve. They look really pasty in this pic. :)

Lyndee, Lyle and little Ava. Ava is wearing Liv's costume from last year.

Andy and Joe. Andy is so dark you can barely see her.

Julie and Chad.

My sister Shannon and her friend Amy.

Becki as the God-dess

We played a game we titled human wac-a-mole, we drew pics of each other that were not flattering. We played mafia, ate good food and chatted. It was a great night. It's making me excited for all the holiday parties we have coming up with the same great people.
And here is little Olivia after everyone left. She had so much candy we couldn't get her to sleep. And yes those are boogers all over her face and she's dipping her hand in the salsa. Good thing it happened after everyone left, or maybe it didn't ;)

Our three cute little kiddos won reflections this year. They each entered in visual arts and photography. Greta and Alina's both went to district rounds. Grandma and Grandpa came to the awards assembly and the principal let the kids show them their classrooms. We're so proud of our kids!

The theme was "Together we can...." And here is what the kids said.

Together we can teach my baby sister how to eat without making a mess.
Together we can be a hero for someone.

Together we can enjoy the beauty of the earth.
Together we can be a friend to someone.

Together we can grow a garden.
Together we can be a happy family.
