Fall Happenings

So, we started off our Fall season with a little trip to the pumpkin patch in the mall parking lot. I really want to go to a REAL pumpkin patch some day, you know, one where pumpkins actually grow, sawdust is naturally found, and there's no sign of any bounce-houses.

Next stop on our Fall adventures is Halloween. We went to the Palm Springs Ward Halloween Party with my parents, grandmother, Trena and Aaron. It was a very good time. Belen walked in the costume parade and won "Most Beautiful" She was very excited to get her own container of candy. The kids also trunck-or-treated and got way more candy than will ever be eaten. Thyssen has such a huge head that his hood was too tight and it squished his face and it was hard for him to open his eyes all the way. He looked pretty funny all night.Aaron finally exposed his anorexic diet: One gummy crabby-patty a day.
We went to a really cool air-show but got there too late and missed a lot of it. We also had to walk over a mile to get there from the parking lot and it was hot and muddy. Once we refreshed ourselves with slushy lemon-aides, we were all smiles once again. We are totally going again next year, it was really cool.




We started feeling the Christmas spirit and made a ginger-bread house for family night. It turned out pretty ugly becuase I had to use left over orange frosting from halloween when we ran out of frosting.. but, hey, it still tasted delicious!


Yesterday we started decorating the house and Belen decorated her very own tree- When I told her to stand next to it for a picture, she said, "Mom, what do you want me to do? This? or this?" and she started stricking poses. I was cracking up- Too much America's Next Top Model?? What do you think: high-fashion or commercial?
We've had a lot of fun experiencing the change of seasons this year and hope you and your family are enjoying the spirit of the season too! Merry Christmas!

love the pose Belen! We're going to Brasil just before new years..wish you guys could come :) I seriously think you should consider it sometime in the future!

Trena said...

Totally HIGH FASHION all the way. She is more Vogue than YM. Those pictures are so cute. Aaron looks really cute in all of them too, because I have him on that diet. :)

I would have to agree that our children do resemble each other quite a bit! What's even crazier is that Wyatt's hair is coming in red! Not as red as Thyssen's, but he has a lot more than my other two.

I think Belen will be the next top model for sure... you and skippy don't have to worry about the future. She will take care of you! Regan wore Ty's costume but we turned it into a princess aligator. Also, Regan has Belen's flamigo dress. My mom got it in Spain. CRAZY!!! We have to get together soon!!! We miss y'all!!!

I'm so glad that you captured photographic evidence of Aaron's unexplainable skinny self. I thought marriage would totally pork him out! I love how the kids are chowin down on nachos at the air show. That is my favorite food you know. I just told Sonny that I thought the perfect food would be nachos sprinkled with bacon. What do you think?
