This year for Halloween I decided to do our family in simple costumes.  I originally asked Kate what we should be and we decided on ghosts. But after I started making the costumes she told me she wanted to be a carrot instead (totally random). In the end she was fine being a ghost. And I think we looked cute! (the girls more than the parents.) But even the Bishop at our ward Halloween party said like us, he requested a family picture and we were in the program at church the next morning! 

But don't these girls just look too cute?!

I'm OLD!

And this is an ugly picture of me, but it's all I got to depict me one step closer to 30. Can you believe 27?! I feel like there is no way I am really that old! But alas, I am. And I vow to have as much fun this year as I have any other! I have amazing friends who kidnapped me and took me to dinner, then we had some cake at my place. I seriously have the best friends and family ever! I am one lucky lady. I guess I'll keep getting old if I can keep these awesome people around me too!

Sick days

 My poor girls seem to be constantly sick these past few weeks. I will finally get their coughs/runny noses to go away and will make it back to the gym 1 day, and they will both be sick again for a week. I'm seriously starting to doubt this whole gym thing....I LOVE working out alone, but my kids aren't staying healthy long enough for it to be worth my money! Anyway, this is what they like to do when sick--lounge around. Abby bear hugging a bear while watching a show, and Kate using Jon's 'toy' to watch a show of her own.
In other news Abs now officially has 3 teeth! Our kid may have a full set of teeth someday!

And other unrelated news, I started this blanket awhile ago for a dear friend who is having her first baby. I finished it yesterday, and am proud of how it turned out!

Taking our issues one step further

Having the dog under her control wasn't enough, she has now started to push Abs around the house in a basket WHILE controlling the dog.

Happiness is:

 Sharing baby dolls. And giving them lots of hugs and kisses.
 Taking Chance for a walk around the house...dressed in mom's shoes and a rockin' outfit!
 Giving the dog a hair cut. (Sadly I'm not sure it will be the last one he receives...)
 Two fists full of popcorn.
 (I love how she looks like she is guilty in the first one, then elated at getting away with snatching 2 fists full!)
