The Tree is Up

Honestly, I've actually had my tree up for a couple of weeks. This was the first year I've ever put it up before Thanksgiving. It started snowing/blizzarding and it just looked like Christmas outside so when Mitch came home from work and offered to help, I jumped at the chance.



As you can see, the help didn't last too long!! But at least we were all in the same room!

Addisyn's Two Year Pic's

I was really happy once again with how her pictures turned out. I don't know about you but every time we go in for pictures, I just sort of expect the worst because you just never know what you'll get with kids. This time I did come prepared with treats in hopes that we could bribe her into a smile if need be but thankfully I didn't even have to use them until the very last couple of shots.

I'm sorry I couldn't get this one to straighten, so just tilt your head a little!

Of course we ordered way more than just the two of these, it is impossible to not walk out with a bunch of pictures! These two were just my favorites.

Disney on Ice

My lovely mom got the family tickets to go see Disney on Ice over the weekend down in Salt Lake. It was so fun and I am really glad we went and had a little girl to dress up! I'm thinking this is going to become a new family tradition because Addy loved it- at least for her attention span she loved it :)

Turns out I was really bad at remembering to take pictures throughout the show so we just have a lot from Peter Pan, which was my favorite anyway, and it was at the end of the show.

While these pirates were dancing/skating, Addy was standing in her chair stomping her feet and turning around trying to copy what they were doing. It was very cute!

I love how they did the crocodile really big. They did the same thing with Ursula from the Little Mermaid but sadly I forgot to take pictures of that.

They also did parts from Lilo and Stitch. I really need to re-watch that movie because there was lots of stuff I didn't remember (like all of it).

They started the show with the Lion King which was also pretty cool. This picture is really bad but it is the only one I have. I can't even imagine having to skate with those costumes on. How do they even see? Just look at Pumba...really skating on all fours...impressive.
Addy's ultimate favorite of the night...
Mickey and Minnie Mouse!! Probably because those were the only one's she really knew from her cartoons. Thank you Disney Channel! Also the dog in Peter Pan, he kept her distracted from flicking snow cone on the people in front of us for awhile!

More Halloween Fun

For those who don't know, I LOVE Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays and it was even more so this year because Addy was finally old enough to take around and enjoy some fun activities.

One such activity was the city trunk or treat at the local gym. It was so fun because they had lots of different booths and activities set up for the kids. Addy got her fingernails painted (which she sat amazingly still for-I couldn't believe it!) , went fishing for prizes, got her picture taken, did the cake walk and got lots of candy.


We also went to Boo at the Zoo. I didn't get very many pictures because it was packed and I was by myself with Addy but it was still lots of fun to see the zoo with all the lights and halloween decorations.


They even had a straw maze for the little kids and Addy led us all the way through without getting lost!


On Saturday, we carved pumpkins with some friends in the afternoon. We kinda waited a little late getting one of our pumpkins so they only had really big ones left at the store and I broke three carving knives while creating my Frankenstein.

Later we got all dressed up and went to our neighborhood trunk or treat. Everyone loved our costumes accept a few little kids that didn't even want candy from me, they just quickly walked past and didn't even want to look at me!


Once it got dark, we took Addy around to a couple of houses in the neighborhood. I was amazed at how many houses had their lights off, things are way different from when I was a kid. It was still fun and I'm already thinking of fun costume ideas for next year :)




Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are still enjoying the candy as much as we are!!
