Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!

Jimmy and I helped plan and put together the Sandia Ward Halloween Party on Friday the 31st. We had a picnic style dinner with a magic show followed by a costume parade. Then the kids were released to have fun at 9 different carnival booths set up around the cultural hall. After all that fun we headed out to the parking lot for the Trunk-R-Treat.

Here is our Halloween outfits:

1.Jimmy's Costume: Face paint with pendent- $0.25
Hair spray, black & white - $0.96
Cape - $1.25
Red Tuxedo waist strap - $0.99
2. Beth's Costume: Face paint with nose - $0.25
Hat with hair - $0.97
Dress - $3.50
Socks - $2.00
3. Kennedy's Costume: Free
The fun we had......priceless!!!!
Jimmy ran the Cotton Candy say least it was a big hit!
Kennedy wasn't too interested in treat-or-treating, she had much more fun standing in the back of the truck watching all the kids come by.

Kennedy won the "cutest kid ever" award at the costume parade. I introduced her and then set her on the stage to have her crawl across, everyone laughed when she did. I wish I had the video camera out then but I didn't, so I video her after. She was really cute in that costume!

McCall's Pumpkin Patch

I was bummed thinking about missing the Schneph farms this year in AZ, but never fear we found a pumpkin patch here, YES!!!!! We went on a Saturday with a big group of friends. It was fun to go with a lot of people.

Kennedy loved all the animals, we couldn't get her to look at the camera because she was too busy watching the ducks.
The one ride that Kennedy could go on was the cow ride. Here we are waiting for our little ones to get back.
She went with Hunter and Parker, and she really didn't want to go on it at first but by the time she got back she didn't want to get out.
Yep, she's getting taller.
We took a hay ride out to the pumpkin field. Kennedy liked being in the middle of all the pumpkins. She searched around until she found one her size that she liked.
Then Jimmy found one that he liked. I swear it was the biggest one in the whole field.
Later that night the Navarrette's rented a fire pit for their daughters B-day. We hung out ate BBQ pulled pork, roasted marshmallow, drank hot chocolate and celebrated Katie's B-Day.

I'm sorry I haven't been very good a posting lately.....well for the last 3 months. So I'm starting to caught up. Hopefully I'll get caught up in time for the holidays.


I made a surprise visit to AZ!! I didn't tell anyone that I was coming except for Summer & Derek and Lindy. Lindy convinced her Mom to come with her to the airport saying that she was picking up a friend and then they were going furniture shopping. Jimmy was talking to his Mom when they pulled up. When she saw me and Kennedy she screamed and threw the phone down. We then headed to the Hoopes' house to surprise Fred and Melissa. I hung out there until about 5:00pm until Derek called me and told me that "the eagle had landed". That meant that everyone had arrived at their house for Sailor's B-Day party. When I got there I walked out the sliding glass door and surprised everyone!! Mom started to cry (that made me feel good :))

We decided at the party to have a girls night out. We went to Oregano's sorry I forgot to get pics at the restaurant.

Kennedy and I hung out for the next week, one of the things she liked to do was look out the window at the dogs. It was so funny because they would stand there waiting for her to open the door and she would just scream at them.

Amber gave me a much needed hair cut!!!! Thanks Amber!!!!

One night we went out with the Hoopes' to BJ's. I miss that restaurant the most!

Fred cut a watermelon an gave it to Kennedy to eat by her self. We enjoyed the photo shoot. She is my mom's grand-daughter she LOVES watermelon. It was fun to be down I guess I'll see everyone again at Thanksgiving.

Jemez Mountains

Before it was starting to get too cold we went on a camping trip with a group of friends. (Yes I was cold all night and all day!!!) We didn't find a camping spot until Friday late so there we were 5 different families setting up tents with tired children, aaaaahhhh!!! Well as soon as we got the fire going the kids settled down. There is something about a campfire that just makes you stare at it. Saturday we just hung around and went on hikes with the kids. We packed up and came home Saturday night, it was fun!!!

During one of the hikes we went on Kennedy started to get tired so she would lay her head down on Jimmy's head. It was so cute. We cut out of the hike early so that we could go back and lay her down for a nap.
After waking up from the nap she wasn't so happy. Kennedy and Dad just hanging around by the camp fire.
