Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet!

We went trick-or-treating in our soon-to-be new neighborhood tonight. Here's the kiddos in front of our future home!

My little ballerina and ninja!

This is our new neighbors home - they are precious!

This one was all done up, and a little scary - music, smoke, etc!!! Some people go all out!

Can you guess what I was?????

Pumpkin Carving 101

We are alot like pumpkins...When God gets a hold of us he picks us up, and begins to clean us off!

Then...he starts little by little to take all the yucky out!

He gives us a new heart and a happier face...

So we can learn to...

SHINE HIS light to others!!!!

Halloweeened Out, Almost!!!!

Kinsley at New Creation's Fall Festival - class party

Whooo - we have been celebrating Halloween all week this week it feels like! We are about Halloweened out!'s been fun! We just like to do the fun, family friendly Halloween stuff, none of that scary evil stuff for us, no thanks! This year Kinsley is a ballerina, and Kaden is a ninja! We started off with going to Jae and John's church's Fall Festival - more pics to come on that later including a capybara, other animals (they had a petting zoo), human bowling, etc - stay tuned - I just didn't have my card in my camera that day so I have to get a cord to hook it up to the computer - not sure where that is since we've moved:) was on to our preschool's Fall Festival!

Kinsley and her friend Katie doing the "Tooty Tah" in class:)

A little girls dream!

Next was our church's annual Trunk or Treat, but first you have to get some energy - with a Jack-O-Lantern pizza:)

Jae, John, and pea pod Kai joined us too:) Sooo cuddly!

We saw some friends - kitty Delaney, and Sponge Bob Carsten

Another lollipop tree - if you pick a lollipop with red on the stick you get one of those HUGE candy bars - Kinsley won!!!!!!

I think this is Tigger!

Here's our Home Group's Trunk - Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - we had big bowls of spaghetti, and the kids had to throw the meatballs (made from foam balls and felt), into the bowl of spaghetti (yarn) for a prize! See the big meatball on the roof of the car??? FUN!

Walking With The Dinosaurs

Tonight we went to Walking With the Dinosaurs!  The kiddos were THRILLED!!!!  We had a blast!  I don't know if its just a sign of the times or what, but NO ONE was there, so we went down and had front row seats after intermission!!!  Kinsley wore her vintage mushroom shirt I just love - Jayna this one's for you, I think it was yours some...30 years ago or so????  LOVE IT!  Oh, and Kaden wore his Darth Vader Lives shirt - in case any of you were wondering:)

Here's my mom, she's so precious, she bought these tickets for them because she knew they'd love it - and she loves science, and she wants them to love science, which they do, so that's good!  Thanks so much mom - it was so much fun!

Ummm, slight detour for this architectural shot - thought it was cool, I was an architecture major once, for those of you who don't know!  Dad - for you! (he's an architect, again, for those of you who don't know:))

The amazing and HUGE T-Rex - he roared at as!!!  Wow, quite dramatic!

Don't remember the name of this one - spiny little thing!

Don't remember this one either - but it was known for its rather large head!

There was once a time when insects flourished, and therefore, so did flowers of many different varieties - the ozone was good, and so was the amount of precipitation, obviously they eventually died off and only the strongest species survived!  Hopefully we'll see these in heaven again someday!


Brachiosaurus (aka:  long-neck)

Stegasaurus - and Kaden has a song for this one:  "I'm a stegasaurus, a funny looking dinosaur, for on my back are several bony plates, and on my tail there's more!"

All in all, we had a great time, and the kiddos want dinosaurs for Christmas now:)

Beautiful Day

What a beautiful day today was!  Don't you just love when there's a beautiful Saturday - there's nothing better right?  We went to a friend's birthday party today and I was so glad it was outside at a pretty local park!  The kiddos had a blast digging in the rocks, and I had a good time knowing they were outside in the fresh air!!!  

Sweet little Ella was the birthday girl, her mom cracks me up - she bought her a four year old candle by mistake, Ella turns 5 pretty soon - ummmm, its called denial moms - yes our little ones are growing up WAY too fast!  (Ella's in the orange shirt)
