New haircolor!

I know I am going to cosmetology school and all, but I really am not into drastic changes. Needless to say, my hair is brown.
Change is healthy for the soul.....I think!

Pumpkin carving!

This is a little tradition we started when Kaylee was little. Daddy helps the kids carve pumpkins. He is the most artistic and always helps them design an awesome pumpkin. Here they are making a game plan....

Kaylee is trying to get hers started

Their favorite part, cleaning the insides out.

It is so fun to watch them do this! Even though it is messy and a little smelly, its well worth it.

Fun Spider crafts and yummy cookies to decorate!
Eye ball toss!!!
There was even a haunted scary room which was to scary to show!!!
Overall it was a spooky good time!

Rylan is officially 6

That's right, my little boy is 6. We went to Blast Off and Texas Roadhouse the night before his birthday. We had never been to Blast Off before and they loved it! Brandon and I were exhausted from watchin them!

He finally got to open presents on the morning of his birthday before school! What a good way to start the day.

Finding Joy in our Journey

I really took the prophets message to heart about finding Joy now. It is the everyday trials, mishaps, lessons, tears, laughter, and exaustion that makes up our lives. Despite my silly complaints, I love my life and the people in it. I will choose to be happy everyday, laugh to spite my weaknesses and love with all my heart. Here are a few funny pictures of some days that Alliya got into something she shouldn't or made a fabulous mess. I now laugh at, and love, every one of these moments!

Pumpkin Patch

Rylan had a class trip to a pumpkin patch. Alliya and I tagged along with them.

They got to scout out the perfect pumpkin. Rylan really thought he was looking for the GREAT PUMPKIN because he could not decide on one. After about 20 minutes of intense searching, he found his. Whew!
Alliya got to pick one out too. Her criteria.....a little baby one!
Rylan got to help hold the poster on how pumkins grow! This was exciting because their class had been learning all week about pumpkins! Aww, the things we learned in Kindergarten.

Halloween came early...

We got to have our fun neighbors Kennedy and Carter come play one night. I was pulling out the halloween decorations and ran across costumes. This kept them busy forever. Who says Halloween has to be only one day?
