Here are some pictures I have taken over the past couple of days..

Tuesday Abby had her dance class and she was SOOO excited that she got to dress up in a Minnie Mouse costume. (thanks mom) She was excited to show everyone in her dance class!!

Tuesday night we went over to my Grandma Dots house so Mike could fix a problem they were having on their computer. While we were there, my aunt and cousin came over!! I took these pictures kinda late so Lauren was pretty sleepy and grumpy.. :) but they are cute anyways!!

And on Wednesday (today) we went over to my friends house for a playdate. The kids made a witch and had fun playing in the neighbors yard with all the leaves... and yes.. those are plungers.. but I must say they had never been used before!! :)

Primary Program and Tomatos

Kinda a weird title huh?? Well.. that is how I can describe Sunday.. Abby had her Primary Program on Sunday and she was SOO stinking cute!!! We put her hair in sponge curlers the night before and I must say I LOVE it when her hair is curly!!! What a gorgeous little girl if I may say so myself!!

The tomatos part of my title is because Lauren LOVES tomatos!! I had to pick all my tomatos off my plants a little bit ago because of the freeze so they are in a box on my kitchen floor. If I don't know where Lauren is.. I always check there FIRST!! She loves to sit in them and even sink her teeth into the GREEN ones!! So Sunday Mike gave her a tomato and these are the cute pictures we took.

Halloween Party

We went to my friends Halloween Party on Saturday. We carved pumpkins.. or I should say... Mike and I carved some I don't have any pictures of us doing that because I was kinda busy carving the witch Abby wanted and Mike was playing with the girls.. :) We frosted yummy sugar cookies and the kids played and played... They love going over to Kenshin and Bethany's house!!

Homemade Halloween Crafts

So I have been kinda crafty this year.. yeah for me!! (those that know me well know that I don't have a creative bone in my body) Anyways, so the other day Abby, Lauren and I made a witch. We made popcorn for the warts and I think the girls enjoyed eating them more than gluing them to the paper!! Abby also wanted her witch to have a pink dress.. (gotta love her) It is stinking adorable though and Abby is SOO proud of it. Anyone that comes over she has to show you what she made!! Then the next day I wanted to make bats.. the only problem was that I didn't have any more black construction paper!!
So I asked the girls (we invited a couple of Abbys friends to come over and make them too) if they wanted to use any other color and they decided that they wanted to color the bats themselves. Well.. Abby chose PINK!!! We traced their hands for the wings and they wanted me to make witch hats for the bats too.. Bless her heart.. it doesn't look anything like a bat.. but it is cute nonetheless!! Here are a couple cute pictures of the crafts we made!!

Engh Gardens Again!!

So we went to Engh Gardens again to listen to the Pirate tell us a fun "spooky" story. The girls loved it!! Then we walked around and I found the CUTEST idea.. You cut a pumpkin in half and then turn it into a pot for flowers!! I have a picture of what I did below.
(The green pumpkin in front was the one I grew in my garden... I'm so proud.. :) )
