Happy Halloween!! We had so much fun this halloween. Zander dressed up as Tigger and Madison was a kitty cat. They were so cute!! We spent the evening at a trunk or treat at our church. Zander still wasn't quite sure about the whole trick or treat thing this year, but he sure liked the candy! After Mall the kids had gotten a ton of candy, we all went inside for a huge chili feed. Yum!! Zander even got a little nose and whiskers painted on his face at the face painting table. After dinner, Zander and I went to a few houses in our neighborhood so some trick or treating. He could have walked around all night if I had let him. He wanted all the candy he could get!

Baby Pictures

Madison is growing up so fast. She already weighs over 12 lbs. How strange it is to have a baby that actually has some baby rolls. We are loving every minute of it! Alisha and Troy took some awesome pictures of our little Maddy. Here they are...

Both My Little Buddies

Oh my goodness!! Everything at my house has been really hectic since school started on August 25th. It has been crazy trying to get 2 kids out of the house in the morning. Surprisingly, I have not been late a single day yet. I was so worried; I thought for sure that I would be late at least the first week.
I am so proud of my husband. He went to CSI last week and started taking the tests in order to get his GED. He took the last test yesterday and we are still waithing to hear how he did. I'm sure that he did just great. He did so well on all of the other tests that he only needed to score 410 out of a possible 800 points on this last test, so I'm not too worried.
Jason decided to go and get his GED so that he could join the army. It would be a great opportunity for our family. We would all have health insurance, which is a big incentive itself, and Jason would be making more money than he is now. We would also be able to see some of the world. If everything goes as planned, Jason will be leaving for bootcamp by the end of this month or the first of next month. My goodness!! Everything is moving so fast-it's nuts!! Jason would be gone at basic training and AIT for about 4 months and then when he got home we would be moving wherever he got stationed. I'm very excited for Jason. I don't think I've ever seen him so excited about anything. However, I'm also very nervous to be here alone with a two year old and a new baby and school. I'm very thankful that we live so close to family. Anyway, please cross your fingers and say a little prayer for Jason. He is so stokedand has been working so hard to get everything in order. I hope everything turns out well.

Family Pictures

On Sunday night, we went down to Alisha's house to celebrate my father-in-laws birthday with the family. We had a lot of fun. All of the kids always have a good time when we get together and it is so much fun to watch them all play together. We also had the opportunity to have some family pictures--thank you Troy and Alisha. We don't get the chance to get decent family pictures very often, so of course we were thrilled. Troy is an awesome photographer, too!! First, we went down to Granny's Pad in Declo and got some pictures on the rocks and in the creek. Then we went to a wheat field and took several pictures.

This is the only picture that turned out on our camera, but I'm sure they turned out much better with Troy's. I can't wait to see what they look like. What an awesome idea with the frame Alisha!!

First Family Outing with Madison

We had so much fun today!! Tresa and Chris stayed in town last night and offered to drop Zayne off last night and pick him up today to take him back home and save all of us another trip and therefore gas money. Anyway, since we only had Zayne for a little while, we decided we had better make the most of it. I thought it would be fun to take the boys down to Rock Creek Park to go for a walk and have a picnic lunch.
Our little princess slept almost the entire time, with the exception of waking up to eat halfway through our walk. The boys had so much fun with Jason. They climbed all sorts of rocks and Zayne freaked out because he thought there were snake holes in the rocks. It was really funny. Check them out... They also climbed a huge tree. Zayne thought the tree

was pretty cool because he could hang and swing from the branches. He had a blast. Weall had a lot of fun, much better than sitting at home driving each other crazy!! I think that we will definitely be going for a lot more walkjs in the future.
