Warning - super long post!

So much has happened in the past little bit and I just haven't had a chance to post about them yet. I don't want to leave any of them out, so here goes:

Halloween was a lot of fun, despite the rainy weather. I swear Utah is cursed when it comes to the trick-or-treating weather. It was beautiful all week and then Halloween hits and its cold and rainy. But the kids had fun anyway - and maybe it was a blessing in disguise - they didn't want to go go to too many houses and didn't have candy coming out of our ears this year. The boys and I helped in Emma's class and then watched her little parade. Very cute.

My cute little trick-or-treaters - Emma the bride, Parker the cowboy and Evan the hars (horse)

The day after Halloween is Evan's birthday and my little baby turned 2 - hard to believe. Time flies. It was low key, we went out to lunch and a cute little kids cafe and then did our own cupcakes later that day. Grandma and Grandpa drove all the way from Bountiful to give Evan his gift. Grandma was too tired from the drive because of her health so she stayed in the car. But we were so thankful for that sacrifice that they made.

Evan opening presents. If your wondering why they are wrapped in blankets- Parker insisted.

Uncle Josh was voted into doing a man pageant for his college. It was quite entertaining to say the least! Emma and Skylee were his little escorts and looked so, so beautiful!

Here he is doing that snake move - whatever its called

He did the Haka (not sure how you spell that), the dance from New Zealand. Love this face!

And here are the girls with his award.

Finally, Alaina tagged me, and I really can't think or anything quirky or unique about me to post - that's about how my life goes these days. But yes, as she said in her post - I am the one who LOVES Christmas music and have it playing nonstop starting the day after Halloween. Soooooo anyways instead of the tag, I'll post this...
