Halloween is Everywhere!!!!

Saturday Rick made this Shrimp Primavera for himself and his buddies when they were going to watch UFC at our house.

The kids and I were out doing some shopping. When we got home I looked in the bowl and found this:

Savannah was super excited when I showed it to her! :-D Happy Halloween everyone!

I think this was the girls' favorite part of the summer. Biking at the campground. Too bad this is the last weekend to do it. We'll have to bike around the block for the rest of the nice weather here.

Roasting Marshmallows

So lately I joined Pinterest and of course have spent a lot of time on there like most others that join. It has helped me to find a lot of new ideas for crafts, crochet and things to do with the children.

So far this is their favorite thing we have found on there. It's a play campfire. "Roasting" marshmallows on skewers was so much fun! If the flames look a little funny to you it's because we didn't have red, yellow and orange tissue paper, so had to settle on red, green and blue! The best part was listening to the older two tell the two year old the fire was hot so he wouldn't knock it down by touching it. The grey paper at the bottom is newspaper rocks. I didn't want to risk using real rock in the house with young children. They loved helping to make the whole thing.

Thinking Disney!

The Disney Store at our mall moved downstairs to a bigger location. This past weekend they had a reopening ceremony that I was able to take the kids to. They got to participate in the "Hot Dog Dance," a parade, and calling Tinkerbell to save the store from the villains! They each got a foam microphone for doing the dance and a character mask for the parade.

Then, the highlight of the day for them was meeting Goofy. He and Mickey Mouse flew all the way up here from Disneyland on a Disney plane. For real! There was a Disney staff member there with them that I was able to talk to while we waited.

This is Savannah talking to Goofy after the rest of us went to the side to let the next people have their turn.

She just stayed and stared at Goofy. So he patted her on the head and gave her a kiss!!!! She was so excited about that. It took me a minute to get her away. She thinks all the Disney characters are her personal friends. I guess that is what happens when you visit them every year.

Of course, she and Daddy have been discussing visiting the Princesses again. I won't argue with that! :D

5 Going on Cute!

Yesterday night Daddy stayed at a hotel again without us for work. Something he has been doing a lot of this summer with his new job. Savannah thinks he is having holidays without us. What else would you be doing at at hotel?

Last night I took the kids for a scooter ride to 7-11 to get treats for bedtime snack. Really I just wanted a Slurpee, but needed to give them some kind of motivation to get all the way there and back.

On the way there, Savannah discovered a toy phone she had put in the pouch on the front of her scooter. She is much faster than L on hers. So while waiting for us on a corner, she decided to get out her "cell phone" and call Daddy. Just as we came up to the corner I heard her saying "Hello Daddy, I love you!" She had a huge grin on her face the whole time.

Then tonight after she was asleep I went to check on her and discovered she had snuck into our room and taken Daddy's fuzzy wolf blanket off our bed and covered herself with it in her own bed. What a stinker, but at least she wasn't sleeping on Daddy's side of our bed this time! :D

During her prayers she thanked Heavenly Father for the fun holiday we had scootering to 7-11! Guess I will have to take them on more scooter rides before the snow flies. We saw and heard the first crunchy leaves on the sidewalk last night.

On the weekend we went to a scrapbook store with Flower Gramma. Gramma was still waiting in the checkout line to pay when I took the kids out to get them in the car. She overheard another lady say to her friend, "Did you see how cute that little girl in the blue skirt is?" I think Daddy is going to have his work cut out for him when she reaches dating age!

What cute things have your children or others around you been doing lately?
