For FHE Grandma Donna and Grandpa Ron hosted a Halloween party. Complete with gross things to eat, fun games, and pumpkin carving.Here we have an octopus, a snorkeler, a shark, and a little starfish.

For some reason we didn't think to snap a picture of Grandma and Grandpa. They looked good. We didn't get a picture of Ryan and Tara either but they're white trash! (Really they were white trash.)

We had a great dinner which included body parts!

Who doesn't like fingers and eyeballs?

Grandma keeping Natalie occupied while we were carving pumpkins.

Millie supervised Daddy, told him what to carve then ran off to play until the final product was ready.

Camille wanted Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. (Good choice because she is scary!)
Daddy was able to pull it off.

Nothing grosses me out like MICE....so I made my pumpkin super creepy!

Wanna go "camping"?

Brad and I have always enjoyed camping. It donned on us that last time we went camping was when I was pregnant with Camillie. Brad decided we were going to take the girls camping this weekend!

Yes, the tent is in our basement!

Setting up camp (I'm glad we had a tent because it was raining!)

Camille showing Dad EXACTLY where she wants her sleeping bag!

Testing it out....seems to be right!

Nattie J not sure exactly what this thing is.

Waa la the girls first camping trip! (Okay, so Natalie actually slept upstairs in her crib but the rest of us camped!)

I know you're wondering what you do when camping in the basement. Well, you watch Mulan and eat rice crispy treats (Gotta have marshmallows when camping) then turn in for the night!

Eye've been feeling a bit crafty

So I made some Halloween decor.
Made the girls some new hooded towels.

And made Camillie's Halloween costume (No pictures yet...We're waiting until our Halloween party....you'll have to check back next week.) I think I"m going to start Natalie's scrapbook, now that she's already 6 months old!

Game Time

Camille loves when Wyatt comes to play. I'm glad she can have such nice friends. Here they are warming up the game paddles so the adults could play some serious Mario Kart!

It's been six months since Natalie joined our family and we're sure glad she did!

Golden Birthday

28 and feeling greatWell it's been 2 weeks but I thought I better share how the birthday went and brag about Brad a little. I spent a normal day with the girls (okay I had the chicken pox and I got birthday cards in the mail but other then that it was normal.) But Brad came home and we decided to go out to eat. (I know I was risking exposing people to my illness but I wanted a fancy burger dang it!) Red Robin in Idaho Falls leaves much to be desired. Next time we'll have to try Five Guys Burger and Fries!

On the way home Brad said, "Oh there's something in my wallet for you." and pulls out this:

I've been wanting a Rigby Library Card since we moved here but they cost $ because we live outside of the city so I never bothered to go get one! Needless to say I was giddy! Brad did GOOD and could have stopped there but didn't!

We were getting ready for bed and I went to check on Mils when I came back there was a present on the bed. I opened it to find this:

IT'S A LABELER....okay I know I'm a total nerd but I've always wanted one. Now I walk around the house just looking for things that need a label!! (Is it okay to label your children?)

Then I was told to look in my nightstand to find this:
Now when I take pictures or videos with my phone I have a way to get them on the computer! Perfect because I've got some cute pictures of Nattie J and Millie that need to be accessible.

All in all the birthday was great and Brad definitely made me feel special and is a great gift giver! I hope he draws my name for Christmas. :)
