Preschool Pictures!

Mickey Mouse Parade 2013

The kids and I made it to the parade again this year.  Derek got called in to work that morning so we had to go it alone.  Our friends Peggy and Tony and their daughter Lucy were going too, so we were lucky to hitch a ride with them.

We took Sydney along...which was awesome!  The kids had so much fun with her being there.  We went to American Girl, the Lego store, ate at the Cheesecake Factory, Syd and Peggy went to the Disney Store, and we all froze our butts off.  

A good time was had by all I believe...but boy was it cold!

Something was going on with my camera...we all have demon eyes!
I'm too lazy to edit the

I love the pics of them waving

look what happens when the kids get a bath at their Mimi's...


We're stuck home today since my hubby took the truck keys...which gives me a chance to catch up on some blogging!  It's been awhile...where do I begin?

Let's start with the present...HALLOWEEN!!! We went trick or treating with our good friends Kyle and Katie and their two little ones (Haley and Chase).  Both Katie and I are pregnant so we stayed home while the guys took the kids out...this being their first times man-ning up and doing it! It was also a rainy night so this mama was more than glad to stay in.

We started off the night with a Halloween birthday party for baby Martynn (Michelle's youngest) who turned one.  That was lots of fun.  There were about 30 kids - mostly all cousins - running around all costumed up.  And Michelle had some yummy chili and soups and was a really a great way to kick off trick or treating.  It's nights like this that make sweet memories. I'm so thankful for all the close friends and family we have around us.

This was the first year I took the kids to pick out their own years past, I've always just bought something or looked online since they were so little.  I wish you could have seen their little eyes all aglow staring at the costume wall in party city...they were so excited.  And again, another fun memory.

Rowan picked out Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz (which was perfect since she already has those red fancy shoes she wears everywhere) and Rig picked a super hero of course...Batman.
