We don't do much for Halloween since it's not exactly something we want the kids to celebrate. But, we do let them dress up and hand out candy to all the kids that come by. (They are too scared to trick or treat anyway.) They have lots of fun though and they are really cute this year.

Madison dressed as a Laura Ingalls Wilder. She loves the Little House books.

Jaden as Daddy. He has always wanted to be like Robert, but since he left Jaden's admiration for all things Daddy has grown.


Madison after she got her medal for soccer.

Off in her own world while on defense.

Going for it! (She finally worked up the courage to go after the ball)

My Little Soldier

We bought Jaden his Halloween costume the other day. He so looks up to his daddy that he wanted to be just like him for the day. Thankfully our bx sells little abu's in the clothing and alterations part. What a little man!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday honey!! I love you and hope you have a wonderful day.

Btw, I really need some recent pics of you. This is from July. :) Oh, and his bday is really the 16, but since it was already the 16 where he is I wanted him to have something to read over there on his special day.

The Boise Zoo just opened their new Africa exhibit this past weekend. My friend and I took the kids on opening day. It was so fun. They got to see the giraffe, lions (that tracked the kids that ran outside their pen. Made me really glad they were on the other side of the glass), monkeys, and numerous other animals. Oh, and let's not forget the squirrel. That's right, we drive for an hour and the animal they get most excited about is a squirrel that is running around during lunch.

Madison, Jaden, and Jaxson with a giraffe.

These were the lions that were tracking the kids. They were huge.

The red panda that had babies just a couple months ago. Since the pandas are nocturnal we have never had a chance to see them. It was pretty cool.

Madison and Jaden modeling the bat-eared fox ears.

Yard Construction

We had a couple of holes in our yard from Darby digging. So, the other day I filled them in with dirt. Except that the only shovel we have is a little one for gardening. What's a mom to do? Get the kids to help with their trucks.

And now my yard is hole free. Yay!
