Happy Halloween

This year for Halloween Aiden wanted to be Buzz Lightyear, so I decided that the whole family should dress up as Toy Story characters. Trent was Woody, I was Jessie and Sienna was the pig. I didn't realize that because Halloween fell on a Sunday, we wouldn't have that many opportunities to wear our costumes, so I spent a lot of money and time on costumes we wore for 2 hours. Oh well, at least we got some pictures and memories.

We went to our ward's trunk or treat on Saturday night. Aiden was loving the candy and was very polite saying thank you to each person. At one point, he even started passing out his own candy to the other kids. Sometimes he is such a sweetheart. We got to hang out with Danny and Sandy for a while before we watched the Halloween classic, Hocus Pocus.

Sunday we invited our friend Jennifer and her two boys over for our Halloween dinner of homemade chicken noodle soup and hot dog "mummies." I made some candy corn cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes. It was a great holiday! We hope you all had a good Halloween!

To infinity and beyond!!

The Pumpkin Farm

Last Friday night we went to a little place called the Pumpkin Farm. It was so cute. There was a corn maze, playground, hayrides and lots of photo ops. We let Aiden pick out his own pumpkin and walked around enjoying ourselves and being together as a family. It was a great night.

Whodi Reunion & CA trip

We got to go on an amazing trip to California to see family and have a reunion with all of Trent's college roommates. We went for ten days at the end of September. We went to Palmdale for 4 days and had a blast hanging out with Todd and Jessica and Brayden. Then we were lucky enough to stay in Corona del Mar at Molly's parent's house right on the beach. It was such a fun trip. We went to Disneyland, took surfing lessons, had a bonfire, hung out at the beach and ate a lot of good food. It was so fun to see everyone and we had amazing weather the whole time we were there.

We also got to see Casey and Lexi and Catherine and Brad for a little bit, but stupidly forgot to take any pictures. It was so great to see so many people we love and haven't seen forever. Here are a bunch of pictures in random order.

We have one chunky baby! At her two month checkup(she was 2 1/2 months) she weighed 16 lbs 4 oz and was 25 inches long!! She is in the 95 percentile for both weight and height. She is one healthy girl and is growing really fast. It makes me sad because my baby is not little anymore.

I wanted to see how big Aiden was at this age, so I was looking at older blog posts and was shocked to find that at his 9 month checkup he was 15 lbs 14 oz. That is crazy. I have pretty much polar opposites for children. We can't figure out exactly who she looks like either. Her hair looks reddish in the light, so she did get that from Trent. All I know is that I love this sweet baby girl so much!!!

Lori's visit

I have a lot of updating to do! Lori came to visit us at the end of August, I was so excited to have her here. We had tons of fun. We went to the Fort Worth Zoo, worked out, went swimming, played games, went shopping and ate barbecue. We had so much fun, I almost didn't let her leave. I'm so happy she came, Love you Lori!

We blessed Sienna on the 29th of August. I was so glad that at least one family member, Lori, could be there. Caitlin and Hugh and our Tejas family came, so we were very grateful to have them there. Trent gave her a beautiful blessing, he did such a good job. We love Sienna so much and are so glad she is a part of our family.
