Today was dress up day at school and Cailyn was a pirate. While we were getting her dressed Landon started yelling cuz he wanted his costume on, too! And then I decided to put some make up on Cailyn. Apparently Landon wanted some make up on, too, and decided to apply it himself. Little turkey. :o)
Last night we went to Mickey's Trick or Treat Party at California Adventure. We had such a good time! There were lots of trick or treat stations throughout the park and they were giving candy (and apples and carrots!) away by the fist-fulls. Since even the adults got trick or treat bags, we ended up with about a million pounds of candy!
The best part of the night was meeting Mickey & Minnie. We waited in line FOREVER but it was well worth the wait. When it was our turn I set Landon down and he RAN to Minnie's open arms and latched onto her. He would have cuddled her all night if we had let him! Even as we were leaving he turned back for one last hug from her. It was so cute!
All in all a great night and we all had a great time!
Chelsea, Aiden, & Sydney were visiting last week and we were having so much fun I forgot about my loyal fans (aka: Meagan!) and didn't keep up w/my blog. So sorry. :) We did lots of shopping, scrappy projects, duck pond, pumpkin patches, trunk or treat, Chuck E Cheese, parks, food, movies . . . the list goes on and on. I think we're all worn out from from a week of too much fun!
We went to our local pumpkin patch today, but because of the heat none of the rides were open. So the kids played in the petting zoo for a bit. Landon LOVED the animals! So different from Cailyn who was (is) always so scared of 'em. (Sorry about the lighting - our camera must have been on a weird setting.)
Also, Cailyn's friend from her kindergarten class was there and they were just so cute together.
Yesterday Cailyn came inside after playing on her swing and went on and on about how she needed a new swing. Her bucket swing apparently isn't very good for pumping and she wants one like the ones at school. So I told her she should ask Santa to bring her one for Christmas. Her reply? "No, I'll just ask Daddy. He listens better. Last time I asked Santa for a Tinkerbell polly pocket and he couldn't find one for me." :o) Apparently Daddy is cooler than Santa.
