Halloween Night

The pumpkins were carved by kids and adults with care. My mom came over the day before Halloween to carve pumpkins and see a movie with us.


The queen and pony were ready to go!

A friend who lives out in the country came into town to join us.

The next day we sorted candy!


Ava tried to hid in our candy bucket. Thank goodness that madness is done! Ava has been admitted to CAA for a week of recovery. (CAA= Candy Addicts Anonymous)

Presbyterian Preschool Halloween

Ava's school took a trip to a local pumpkin patch and corn maze. They did the kiddie maze, rode in the "Cow Train" and jumped on the giant air pillow.

Pumpkin Patch

I apologise for the tardiness of these next few posts. We have been busy.



This year we headed to a good old fashioned pumpkin patch. You know the kind with just pumpkins and squash. No mazes, goats or tractor rides.

(Luckily friends showed up as I was trying to figure out how to get a family photo, thanks friends)


Lots and lots of big, bigger and humongous pumpkins!



Their favorites

So pretty

Yes they came too.

Ava loved her Acorn Pumpkin so much she slept with it for a few nights.

Lilies sleep study

A couple of days after the wedding Lilie was scheduled for a sleep study due to her sleep issues. The test requires you show up between 7-7:30 ready to be wired up and go to bed. Easy right? haha nope! With kids a parent spend the night with the child. Since Josh had to go to work the next day, I was the lucky one:) My mom came over and spent the night with Josh and Ava since Lilie and I wouldn't be released until 6 am and Josh is on the road by then.


Lilie and I hit In-n-Out for dinner on our way to Mountain View.


After check in we got settled into our room, aka Lilie calmed down after a freak out about having to do the study.

Yes 28-30 wires and tubes were attached to her from head to toe!
Looks totally comfy right? Just a little tape and wires.

How about some wires glued to your head?
Ready for bed!
All tucked in with her blanket
This would be the toe side of things.


We watched Bed Nobs and Broom Sticks and then at11:00 off to sleep we went.


At 5:55am we got a wake up call that all was done and we were free to go! They removed all the wires and left some glue in the hair and tape all over.

Next stop? Starbucks!!

Oh and don't forget the six of these little buggers that they left on her due to the pain they cause when removed. Their suggestion was to remove during shower. She had two of these on each lower leg/above the ankle and one on each side of her collar bone.


We are still waiting on results. But Lilie did great!
