Say's Christmas!

I saw this fun way to take Christmas pictures 
And thought I would give it a try :)

We had a lot of fun getting prettied up and taking pictures ALL morning long
I'm definitely NOT professional, but it was fun all the same :)

Ginger-Cracker houses

Who doesn't love making gingerbread houses?
Well more like Graham Cracker houses, but just as fun!

(Crystal cuddling with "HER" guys)

We had some friends over for a ginger/cracker house night.
We let Crystal stay up late to join in the fun
And she took first place because (as she stated)
"You know, I think I win because mine is different."
We couldn't agree more :)

I have a confession...
I thought I was a brilliant thinker for using hot glue to hold the house together... not try this. It WILL come back to haunt you
and you will end up with a poor excuse for a home. :)

 Luckily we had all night to work out the kinks
And in the end, we all had beautiful candy homes :)

Who?...what?...Is that who I think it is?

We played white elephant for one of our Christmas parties
And this is the gift Brian and I gave....
A BIG, framed, poster-size protrait of our face. HeHe

At first we did it as a joke
Thinking only we would find it absolutely hilarious.
I was surprised when it became the hit of the party.

I'm not going to lie...every time I look at this,
I get creepy goose bumps, and can't stop staring
And I can't help but giggle a little inside.

Merry Christmas :)

Sand Dunes

Coming home from the westside gets long and boring
So we try to brake it up with fun stops on the way
This was the best yet...
We found a random sand dune off the side of the road and decided to make a stop

We had SoOoOo much FUN!!

Daddy wanted to build a sand fort
It wasnt long before both girls jumped in
It was priceless watching these three work together

Our girls LOVED their little fort

(you can see her hair on the other side)


 Best car stop EVER!!

Brian does silly things with his facial hair
This time was a long stash

 Crystal thought it was so funny
And wanted to be funny like him.
I was REALLY quite funny :)

Pajama Party

Meet the boys next door.

Spencer, Crystal, Cameron, Abigail, Travis

We really enjoy the fun activities we do together
This last week they had a pajama party.

 They loved popping popcorn and watching a movie together.

Happy Halloween

 We love Halloween! 
There's so many fun activities to do
So I decided to skip school this week and enjoy the holiday with family :)
And I'm glad I did.

Daddy made delicious jack-o-lantern pancakes for breakfast


Painted and carved Pumpkins

I forgot to take pics of the decorations...but Brian took a snap of the after-mess :)

 We couldnt resist doing a little decor on ourselves as well
I wish we had a video of them sounding like little Indians...hilarious!!

Little Spiders :)

 carnivals, parties, lots of free food 
And of course...Trick-or-Treating
