Happy Birthday Emily. We went to BJ's for dinner. It was tasty.

Carter and the sugar

So, first of all...Keep it classy San Diego...there ya go em. Just for you. The ONLY benefit of being 20 days away from giving birth.
Carter figured out that he could pour a sugar packet into a sushi bowl and then lick it out. It started with the chopsticks too, but ended up just being the tongue and the bowl. It was pretty awesome and also very entertaining.

Elmo Live

Apparently Elmo was talking too much and needed some quiet time!

Visit from the Malone's

Left to right: Devin, Kaitlyn, Michelle and Emma, and Colin.
My great friend Amy moved a few months ago from San Diego to Phoenix. I never really saw her when she lived in San Diego, but now it's worse.
She was out for a few days and it was so fun to catch up and see her new baby. He's super cute! Kaitlyn loved him, but he wasn't feeling it so much.

Best trip ever to the grocery store!

So sweet. They had so much fun sitting in that car cart. And they actually both stayed in the cart for most of the time that we were there. Yeah for car carts and the people that invented them.

Happy Halloween!

This pretty much sums up the night. This was Kaitlyn at 9:00. She had been asleep since about 6:30. We went to Indianola in La Canada. We went about 5 and it was empty when we got there. We ran into Dena, Becky, Jenn, Claire, Marilyn, and their families. Kaitlyn was excited to see the other kids and they kindof showed her what to do. Later we ran into the Ostler's too. We left about 6 and it was just starting to get crowded.
Gettin some candy! The woman at this house used to be the classroom assistant when I did my student teaching. Small world!
Of course Kaitlyn decided to go to the house with the dog after she had refused to go to 5 other houses right before that.
Her little tail was so funny when she ran up the driveways. Super cute.
This was after the 8th house. We didn't make it too far. But she got enough candy(which she hasn't even touched since Halloween). Hopefully next year she will like it better.

Pumpkin Carving

This is the final product. It was pretty fun.
This is Kaitlyn saying "Barf...punkin".
She actually WANTED to wear the costume at this point.

Disneyland at Halloween!

Disneyland always has awesome decorations for holidays. Disneyland is no exception. Kaitlyn actually liked this huge pumpkin in the front of Main Street. Can't wait to go back. This trip was Emma's first time to Disneyland. Yeah for Emma. We also got Emily and Carter to come along. So Fun.
Kaitlyn loved the autopia cars. She screamed everytime we hit a bump. It was so funny. Can't wait to go again.
