Halloween Fun!

Well we didn't end up going to the dunes for Halloween. Brandon went, but the kids and I stayed home. We went out to dinner with Jesyka and then had a fun night of trick-or-treating with Jesyka. It was a great day and night and the kids had a blast! It is amazing how much more fun holidays are when you have kids! Seeing them get so excited is just so amazing...I love it!
Tomorrow we will take down all of our Halloween decorations...go find some deals on new Halloween decorations for next year...and decorate for Thanksgiving! :)

Fall Break In Las Vegas

When we asked the kids where they wanted to go for a little family trip over Fall Break, they both said the same thing..."LAS VEGAS." The kids LOVE Las Vegas! So the kids won and we went on a trip to Las Vegas with the kids, myself, my sister, and Brandon. Other than Jace getting sick on the trip, and then me getting sick on the trip...and then Cade getting sick when we got back and me still trying to get over the was a fun trip. :) We are hoping that it was the swine flu we all had and now we are are free from getting it the rest of the season. :)

We stayed at the Luxor again. It is so convenient to stay there because there are 2 hotels that are connected to it, so it gives us lots of options with the kids. We played at the arcade games a bunch of times and walked the strip one day. We went and saw the shark reef and the lions. Cade was even happy when we were in the hotel room and he was throwing around the football with Brandon. It doesn't take much to please them, so that is nice. :)

I am sure we will head back to Vegas again next year sometime. Hopefully we can all stay healthy on that trip. ;)

Ready For Halloween!

Well the house is decorated and we are ready for Halloween. It is hard to get into the spirit of Fall when it is still over 100 degrees outside....but we are trying. :)
The boys have picked out their costumes already. Cade is going to be Jango Fett and Jace is going to be Boba Fett....from Star Wars. It looks like we will be spending Halloween at the Dunes this year, so the kids will dress up and go trick-or-treating at the trailers in our group. They don't mind missing trick-or-treating here at home. They are excited about getting to the dunes to ride their new quads. :)

The Boys and Their New Toys

Well Santa Claus came early this year for Cade and Jace. They both got new quads. We found someone selling these brand new quads for a good price and couldn't pass it up. The boys are super excited to head to the dunes to try them out. Cade is really excited that Brandon even bought paddles for the quads so they can "go faster" in the sand. :) They have helmets and all the gear and they are ready to go!

Jace Turns Four

I can't believe that my baby is 4!!!! I still remember the day that he was born. I had my first contraction at 7 am. We got to the hospital at 8 am...and he was bown at 8:32 am. When I found out I was pregnant with Jace, my doctor said my due date was somewhere around September 14th-21st. I remember telling Brandon this and he said..."he will be born on September 11th...I just know it." I was scheduled to be induced on September 12th. But Jace decided to make his apperance on September 11th.
We ate at D'Vine for his Birthday dinner. He loves their pizza and chocolate cake. :) His Birthday party was at Peter Piper Pizza...his favorite place to go!
Jace is such a fun kid! If you ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he always says..."just myself." :) He is always happy, has a great sense of humor...and such a sweetie pie! He still loves giving me big hugs and cuddles...I love it! He LOVES his big brother Cade and always wants to do whatever he is doing. He loves to play LEGO Batman, Star Wars and Indiana Jones with Cade. He falls asleep anywhere! If he is tired, he will find a place to sleep. His favorite color is pink...even though Cade tells him..."pink is for girls." :) He is always carrying little guys or cars around or whatever else is his favorite thing that day. He learned how to swim this year! He started a new preschool and loves it. He also is excited to be getting his own quad this dune season. I feel so lucky to have such a great little guy!
Happy Birthday Jace!!

Silly Boys

I just had to post some random pictures of the boys. They are at really fun ages right now! They get along even better now since they get a break from eachother when Cade is at school. :) I am so lucky to have such sweet boys!

I laugh at the picture of Jace asleep in the chair. We were out to dinner at Got Sushi and he fell asleep. He has always been the child that falls asleep at restaurants! :)
