Claire's changing table is set up next to her crib. Last night we put her to bed in her crib. This is what we found about an hour later. She had climbed out of her crib and somehow managed to get a pillow under her head and a blanket over the top of her. So cute!

The strangest thing...

I've inherited the knack for losing things. Just ask my mom, it runs in the family. So,
recently I lost a library book. Of course it was a "new release" library book, so it could not be renewed. It was missing for about a week before I really started to look for it. The due date came and went and I continued to look. I looked EVERYWHERE. At this point it's been missing about 3 weeks. Nothing was left unturned. I honestly could not thing of a single place that I had not looked. So I finally gave in and ordered a new book from Amazon. This morning I was getting the kids all ready to head to the library to turn in my new purchase, I went into my room and what is sitting right on top of the bed??? My library book. What in the world?? On my bed?? I talked to Brent and each of the kids and no one knew anything about it. So strange...i'll be baffled for the rest of my life on this one!

Halloween getaway

For Halloween this year we took a trip up to Spokane. It was a bit of a whirlwind weekend, but we had a great time. We left Thursday night and arrived very late. Friday we visited family and got to see each their new homes that they have recently bought. All together we took a trip to a childrens museum. They were having a halloween party so the kids got to wear their costume. This is Malia doing what she does best, being a ham in front of the camera. She definately did not inherit that from me. As I look at this picture I realize how old she is getting! So grown up!

This is a picture of what the sis-in-laws like to do. We have a great time when we get together, just chatting and having a good laugh.

This is what you will find the boys doing when we get together. Huddled over the latest gadget
or toy. Brent was pretty impressed with Logan's new iphone.

Friday night we went to Kelly and Annie's for a fun Halloween dinner. We had edible eyeballs,
rotten punch, monster was really fun and really yummy.

Friday night we went trick or treating. The kids were so excited, running from house to house. I love the picture with all of the cousins dressed up.

Malia was a princess, Jacob was luke skywalker, Cole was peter pan, and Claire was a chicken. I was happy that I was able to make or borrow all of the costumes and didn't have to buy anything.

Sunday we headed over to Yakima for the baptism of my nephew Tyler. The kids love the yakima ditto house and were sad to only stay one night. But luckily we have thanksgiving to look forward to.

Here's a pic of Tyler and his mom and Dad on his special weekend. This pic looks like it should be in a magazine, what a great looking family!
