A Princess Pirate and Her Parrot!

Belen had a great time trick-or-treating.. although she just stared at the people and said nothing when they opened the door. Thyssen was over his costume in about five seconds. I made Thyssen's costume with my limited skills... but I loved Belen's costume! I have to give a little shout-out to Julie Presley for making it last year for her daughter.. she's sooooo talented! It's inspired me to want to take a sewing class... I really want to be the type of mom that hand makes her children all their costumes and mends their clothes.... Why does that seem like a far-off dream to me? Anyway, we had a successful night and we're doing it all over again on Saturday for our ward party. Wanna come? Happy Halloween!

A few new pics from the week

My parents came to town today and so of course we went to Dland!We got there at 1 and we had a great time and were totally worn out by 5. I love living so close and having a pass.. it's so fun!

Our family actually went to the pumkin patch this year! Well, it's a California-Style pumkin patch- the pumkins are lined up in the dirt as if they were in a patch and there is a small carnival attached. Anyway, we got a family picture and that's all I wanted.

A few cute pics at Atlantis park with Luke and Penny.

Big Boy

Thyssen can sit up by himself in the bath!! Yay!!! It's so much easier to bathe the kids now. I don't have to use his bothersome bathseat anymore and he and Belen can splash and play now. It may not seem like anything that exciting, but it's huge for me!

Temple Night

We actually got to participate in our stake temple day! I think it's a first for us. My parents came to town because of my cousin's wedding reception and so they were here to babysit- perfect timing! We had a great time and really felt the spirit and the wonderful comfort that the temple can bing. Thanks mom and dad! On a side note- I may need to get a new temple dress- my bust was just about popping my buttons open! I had to keep my arms folded the entire time- everyone just thought I was very reverent. Let's hope that these babies shrink a little post nursing... it's just getting rediculous.

Good Day!

It's on these rare days that I feel like a well-accomplished mommy... Got laundry going, floors clean, grociery shopping done, kids fed and napping, life is good. I love days like this when everything just comes together... Yay me!

I'm Stuck!

So this is how I found Thyssen the other morning... I could hear him crying and when I went into the living room to get him, I couldn't find him at first. When he saw me he started smiling and giggling in hopes that I would pick him up. I had to walk away to get the camera and he started to crying again, and when I got back and he saw me again, he put on the happy face. It might be mean to toy with his emotions like that, but it's really cute.
