The Grand Canyon

saturday, my husband and his family and I set off to hike the grand canyon! what was i thinking? it was a great hike! about 9 miles total. and half of those miles were coming UP. we had a lot of fun. joseph kept us laughing, leah had a birthday, and by the end of the day...we were dead tired! the scenery could not be beat or compared to anything else in this world. it was just stunning.

joseph feeding the wildlife. that was the fatest squirrel i've ever seen!

Trunk or Treat

i love attending trunk or treats! halloween parties are the best! this year my kids dressed up and couldn't wait to head out the door. k was a pirate, a was anaken skywalker, m was a witch, and f was a purple dragon. they were so cute.
i helped take halloween pics of all who dressed up!
i saw THE cutest caterpillar...pink caterpillar, and THE cutest chicken.
i love halloween! i dressed up too! i threw a bike helmet under a
maternity shirt and went...PREGNANT!
it was fun to see people's reactions!
next year i think all the girls in my neighborhood shood do it...pregnant or not. then we should have a contest to see who can guess whose really pregnant! how much fun would that be? i am the room mom for my son's 1st grade class and this year we are going to have a real witch come and make a special BREW for the kids. i will take some video and photos and post them at the end of the month. i am so excited! i love halloween.

last night i was writing in my daughters journal and heard that sound that the shampoo bottle makes, as you're trying to get the very last of the shampoo and hope it's enough for your hair so you don't have to jump out of the warm shower just to get more. i thought to myself, 'just finish this entry and you can check on him. he's being quiet. SILENCE! i walk into my bathroom and there he is with the kids strawberry swirl shampoo...squeezing the last of it all over his legs like lotion. oh kids do the funniest things.

saturday afternoon i went with stef and angie to a fall boutique. i found the cutest little animals for my scrapbooking! BUG EYES! mass production is in the works!

don't forget!

i am suppose to be taking preschool pictures tomorrow afternoon. i am a little nervous...i don't know if it will be raining, too sunny, too shady...not enough sun...which would be okay...so nervous i can't sleep. i feel like i am going to forget something that is scheduled for tomorrow. ever have one of those days where there are so many things to do you just know you're going to forget one...it's not even tomorrow and i feel like i'm going to miss something. i will just stare at my calendar all day.
wish me luck.

finding the ONE
