Halloween 2008

Larry, WeeGee, Felicity and Alexia

We had a great time on Halloween. I went to City Hall and went trick or treating with the girls. Felicity got her chicken costume dirty with her orange stamps so we ended up pulling out the Ladybug costume that was a little small but super cute. We had our close friends Larry and Wee Gee come in town that night so they could see Felicity and meet Alexia. We always LOVE seeing them and Felicity just eats them up. In fact the morning after Halloween she climbed in bed with them and they read books together while I got to sleep in a little. They have become like adopted grandparents to Felicity, which I love! I really didn't have grandparents that were involved at all growing up so I love that Felicity has an opportunity to have such wonderful people in her life! We didn't end up taking Felicity out that night because some of the costumes were scary to her. We just hung out and ate some of Wee Gee's delicious meatloaf, decorated sugar cookies, and enjoyed out time visiting and catching up on life.

wild mustangs in our back yard!

I took this picture out our back door to our home. We have seen these wild mustangs a few times over the year we have lived in Fernley. We love to have this nice surprise every once in a while. They were literally 10 yards away from our house. Pretty amazing! I grabbed Felicity out of her bath so she didn't miss the beautiful wild horses.

Follow-up from the dentist

Well two visits to the dentist totaling 4 hours of time and my mouth is SORE. Once the numbness went away there has been a constant aching in my mouth. The temporary crown has been annoying, I can only chew on one side of my mouth. It's crazy, you go to the dentist to fix problems but when they are done your mouth hurts WAY more than when you first went to them.

Preschool Halloween Party

Felicity's preschool class..Cole, Drew, Chloe, Felicity, and sometimes T.J.

Felicity went a little crazy with the stamp she got for Halloween..She went to walmart looking that way!

Felicity LOVES her preschool. Her Teacher Miss Jessie decided to have a Halloween party. Felicity had a blast! I was really torn about preschool for Felicity. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend the money on it, but Trevor and I are really glad we decided to do preschool and Miss Jessie is a GREAT teacher. Felicity has learned alot and she loves the Zoophonics they use at the preschool.

Trunk or Treat

We had trunk or treat at the church on Wednesday. We had a chili cook off and then trunk or treating outside. Dana Brown did most of the work and I helped her set up the tables and chairs and made some chili and cornbread. Felicity was our little chicken and Alexia was a turtle(the same costume Felicity was when she was a baby!)When we got to the church I knew it was going to be a long night because Felicity didn't take a nap and she was already wining and tired. I went to nurse Alexia and when I got back Trevor was VERY frustrated and told me she needed to be brought to the car for timeout. So I got to deal with that while Trevor enjoyed his chili...Lucky mom! Finally I got a chance to sit down and eat(By then most of the chili was gone) and Trevor took Felicity Trunk or Treating. Felicity had a great time and she fell asleep on the way home from the church...exhausted! I am always thankful we do these fun things AFTER they are done...during when Felicity is having her meltdown I wonder!!!

The Dentist office

I left Alexia for the first time with a good friend so I could go to the dentist. I found out I need a crown and 3 fillings replaced and lucky me they have a slot open TOMORROW to get everything done. I went in today to get one filling that I had broke fixed now $800.00 later. Yeah for me I get to pay someone all that money to make my mouth hurt and for my teeth to be hot/cold sensitive for who knows how long. I love paying for pain!

Anyway, Alexia took her first bottle today and she did great. I hope she will take another one tomorrow while I am at yet another appointment. Wish me luck. I think I will ask for the gas this takes the edge off!

Just some fun pics from the week

Felicity made Alexia into an Alexia sandwich.

Felicity is Definately Trevor's daughter. Who knows maybe she will be an Engineer too.

Alexia was NOT happy in this pic but sooo cute!

Our Scuber Diver

Felicity put some of Alexia's headbands on and decided she was a scuber diver. She was pretending to dive into the water in my bed. It was pretty comical. The way those headbands scrunched her face was hilarious!

Pumpkin Carving

Every year Trevor and Felicity spend the Sunday before Halloween carving their pumpkins. Felicity decided she wanted to paint her pumpkin. Together they carved up Trevor's pumpkin. Felicity decided she wanted Trevor's pumpkin to look like a cat. When they were done she asked Trevor, "Is it scary daddy?" No it's not scary Felicity, it's just a cat. Pause...."Well, it's kinda scary daddy!"

Lattin Farms with play group

Felicity on the cow train..this is the highlight of the trip

The play group enjoying playing at Lattin Farms in Fallon, NV

Felicity, Alexia and I enjoying the beautiful day!

We had such a fun time petting and feeding the animals,riding the cow train, eating homemade cinnamon rolls, and picking out a pumpkin. Felicity decided to pick out a white pumpkin this time instead of an orange one. I really enjoy these days outside in the fall weather enjoying the trees changing colors.

Treena's wedding reception

The day was go go go for Treena's wedding. Go to bed at 1:00 A.M. that morning, get up at 7:00 A.M. drive to Reno, drop the girls off at a friends house, rush to the temple, attend the sealing, rush to friends to get the girls, change everyone into their wedding clothes, rush back to the temple for pics, miss the group pic but we get some fun pics with the bride, go to Red Robin with friends and family for lunch, rush to South Lake Tahoe for reception(2 hour drive), again late for pictures, stop at drug store for an energy drink, chapstick, and saline solution, take lots of pictures, and ahhhh just sit down and relax and enjoy the rest of the night. Help clean up, stop for another energy drink so we didn't fall asleep on our drive home, get back to Fernley at 11:00 P.M. What a day! Oh yeah in between all of the running there were feedings, diaper changes, feedings, diaper changes.... you get the point. Did I mention the dress I wore for the wedding made feeding little Alexia a challenge but we figured it out.

Treena and Tyler looked great together. We are so happy for them both!

We had a great time seeing family and friends and the girls were wonderful for the entire event. Thank goodness for small blessings!

An Unhappy Swimmer

Felicity had her 1st swim lesson. I think pictures can say a thousand words. So, I will just let the pictures speak for themselves. Alexia slept the whole time and we are EXCITED to try swimming again on Wednesday!

Tonight was crazy! Felicity threw up 4 times...not a good night for her. She is not a happy camper! I am not good at cleaning up after sick kids. It took everything I had not to throw up from cleaning it all up. Just my luck Felicity had a red popsicle tonight before she got sick so I spent a bunch of time cleaning up the mess. I am just hoping it was food poisening and not the flu. Trevor's sister is getting married in two days and we have family that is supposed to be staying with us. The last thing we need is the flu bug going around. Here is to hoping everyone is better tomorrow!!!

Summer Powelson and I had a blast yesterday making these fun headbands. We were putting flowers on everything, headbands, hats, purses. SO MUCH FUN!!! This is the one we are going to have Alexia in for Treena's wedding. Maybe I will try to make one that is black, red and white for Eileens wedding.
