Halloween 2009!!

We had a really fun Halloween this year and the kids got so much candy it is ridiculous!! We started out the night by going to our wards "Trunk or Treat" which was pretty quick this year since it was just our ward involved and also our ward had a spook alley which my kids of course didn't want to go through, even though Andrew was playing Dracula in it they told me that there was no way they were going through! Andrew had to stay and clean up so I decided to take the kids around the neighborhood for an hour or so and they loved it! Ava kept complaining that her pumpkin was getting too heavy but she didn't want to let go of it! Ava and Alex both had fun dressing up for their school parties but I couldn't get any pictures of of Alex in his costume because he had his party after lunch and he didn't put his costume on until then! We had fun carving pumpkins a few days before Halloween but I think Andrew and I did most of the carving and I forgot to take pictures of the pumpkins when they were finished! Alex carved a skull in his pumpkin and Ava carved a heart! They were both turned out awesome! All in all we had a great time and we truly love Halloween!!!

We had so much fun at Disneyland! We went with my sister and her family and had a blast! It was perfect weather and not too crowded! Alex had so much fun being picked for the Jedi Training Academy and he got to fight Darth Maul which I thought he was going to pee his pants with excitement!! Ava thought she was one of the princesses with her princess vail mouse ears. She wore those the whole time we were there and even slept in them! Violet was the best baby the whole time and didn't make a fuss at all. It was all around an awesome trip and we can't wait to go back!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. We spent the day as a family and then Andrew and I went to dinner at Black Angus. It was very yummy and we were so stinkin full when we left. Andrew bought me a new camera and these are some of the pics we took! I dressed the girls up in matching dresses for church and they both looked so cute and Alex looked as handsome as ever!

Our Baby Peach is growing so fast

I took these pictures of Violet the other day and she turned into quite the little ham! She is always so happy and smiley it just warms our hearts. She is so easy to love and so fun to play with. I entered her in the Beautiful Baby Contest on Regis and Kelly. I do have to say I personally think she is the most beautiful baby but we'll have to see what they think! She is growing so fast and we all just love having her in our family. Alex is a good big brother to her and Ava has turned into her second mommy!!

Wait, This is Henderson Right?

It was so awesome to get snow this year!! We had so much fun making snowmen and snow angels. I couldn't get the kids out of it! Luckily we had lots of snow gear for them to wear from our trip to Montana last year for Christmas. I still can't believe when I look around the valley how white the mountains are. We actually had to shovel the drive way, well I shouldn't say we I mean Andrew got to shovel the driveway! The snow has truly added to the Christmas spirit!

I dislike: LAUNDRY and ironing! Yuck
I miss: My parents. They live far away in Montana:(
I fear: That something bad will happen to my children or my husband.
I feel: So thankful to have the gospel in my life.
I hear: The young men and young women caroling at my door while I am typing this!
I crave: Chocolate all the time.
I cry: When I hear and see sad things happening to children and animals.
I usually: Try to walk five miles a day.
I search: for my tweezers every stinking day and don't know how they keep disappearing. I don't need a unibrow!
I wonder: What my life will be like when I am a grandma.
I regret: Taking so long to go back to college. (I am going back this next semester YEAH!!!)Watch out old lady on campus!
I love: my family and friends
I care: About peoples feelings and would never try to hurt someone on purpose.
I always: Try to give my kids equal time but it is hard.
I worry: About everything. I can be a worrywart!
I am not: Lazy and I think that drives my husband crazy because he is always telling me to sit down and take a break.
I remember: Sledding and playing in the snow growing up in Colorado.
I believe: in Jesus Christ.
I dance: With my kids and show them all my sweet moves!
I sing: To anything that I like. I can't hold a note but I don't care.
I don't always: Wear make up even though I should because I think I look really sleepy if I don't. SCARY!

I write: Never unless it is an email. I just don't have the time or make time.
I win: at playing tennis with my husband but he will never admit that I do.
I lose: Let's just say I am trying to lose the baby weight from Violet. Slowly but surely as long as I can stay away from chocolate!
I wish: I could be done with college. Being at the beginning just seems like a long road ahead.
