Cade's Baptism

Cade got baptized this month. He kept telling us all along that he "wasn't gonna do it! Nope! Not gonna happen. Not gonna get baptized!" But in the end he did, and he was actually excited and happy to get baptized because his little buddy Michael got baptized with him. (thank goodness for Michael!)

Jens' Football Season

Jens' football team did so good this year! They only lost one game the whole season!

So because they were almost undefeated, they qualified to play in the Superbowl. We were the best team in the league. Other teams had lost more than us.
They played the Superbowl against a team that we had beat before. But we lost by one touchdown!
Good job on the season Jensy!

Happy Halloween 2011!

I loved my kids costumes this year. Sidney wanted to be a punk fairy. I thought it was a dumb idea at first and then we put together her costume and I loved it!
She put on Katelyn's old dance costume, our neighbors army boots and we added some fishnet tights, a fishnet glove, and wings and she looked awesome!

She was the perfect Punk Fairy!

I ordered the c u t e s t costumes for Caden and Molly this year from Chasing Fireflies. They were NOT excited to be the Big Bad Wolf and Little Red Riding Hood but when their costumes arrived and they put them on, then they decided that they were cute and they loved them.

Mostly I think Cade loved it because he could chase Molly around and scare her without getting in trouble.

On Halloween we always go to Sam and Whitney's neighborhood to trick or treat. We have a big dinner party with all of Whitney's family too. All the kids bring their friends and they have a blast. We all bring a ton of candy so every kid likes to trick or treat from us too because when the kids come to the door, they get to take like 5 or 6 pieces of candy instead of just getting one treat.

*Cooper: We're not sure what he was (including him!) *Alli: The 80's fashion girl *Keyne: The Chick Magnet *Jens: We're not sure what he was either. Just some kid with a mask on *Katelyn: The 80's fashion girl *Nick: Coach Hines from Mad TV *Sidney: A punk fairy

Every time these cousins take their picture together I always laugh to myself because:
Katelyn in 14 years old
Averi is 10 years old
Sidney is 11 years old
So even though Sidney and Averi are close in age, Averi looks like a tiny kid next to her and Sidney is a few years younger than Katelyn but she is almost taller than her and she looks just as old to me.
