Trick or Treat

I love fall, but I am not a big fan of Halloween. I do have to say that I do like Halloween more since I've had kids. I love watching them get so excited about trick or treating and getting in there costumes. We went over to our friends house so the kids could go trick or treating and to eat some yummy chicken chili.

Jasmyn was a ladybug and Austyn was Wolverine

Jasi was a little slow, so the other kids went on without us.

First Day of Preschool!

Austyn started his first day of preschool today. We had a meet and greet about a week ago and everyday since he has asked me when he gets to go to school. He couldn't have been more excited.

A Final Farewell

My dear sweet grandma Adams passed away last Thursday April 22nd. Her funeral was on Tuesday and it was a tough day. I forgot how hard it is to lose someone so close. I am grateful that we were able to see her just a few days before she passed away but I am sad because I miss her and because my kids will not remember her.
Here are a few pics that I took of her and Austyn when we visited her a couple months ago.
Here is one of my cute grandpa.

Random Pics

I just thought I would post some pictures of my kids from the last month. My kids are at such a fun age and they truly make my life better in every possible way. I can't imagine what my life would be like without them.

The last couple of weeks they have decided that they like to play in my bathtub. It is so funny to listen to them play. One day they were in a cave and a scary monster was after them, and another day they were in a spaceship. They have great imaginations.

Here is Austyn outside shoveling the patio, just like his dad.

We made it through another Christmas!

Well another Christmas has come and gone. I swear every year it comes faster and faster, and every year I say I will get my shopping done early. Well needless to say I didn't get my shopping done early, I was one of those crazy people at the stores on Christmas Eve.
The festivities started off by going to my dads on Christmas Eve and having dinner. It was a quick dinner because everybody had other family they had to go see. Then we went home and the kids got to open one present, which is always pj's, and then they were off to bed so that Santa could come.
Christmas morning the kids woke up and Austyn kind of remembered that Santa came, but I think he thought Santa would actually be there when he woke up. Austyn got a Harley Davidson motorized bike from Santa and was so excited to ride it, until he got on it and it was in reverse and it went backwards and freeked him out. Jasmyn got a Tinkerbell kitchen and has been cooking ever since. That was pretty much our day, we didn't dare leave the house to visit friends and family, because it snowed so much.

Overall it was a fun and relaxing Christmas. I guess I better get started on my shopping for next year, so I don't wait till the last minute.

Tis the season

Last weekend we had a bit of an early Christmas. My mom and my sisters came down for the day and we made Christmas treats and had lunch together. Since my mom lives in Idaho, and we probably wouldn't see her before Christmas, she had presents for the kids to open.

Sunday night we had the Karren family Christmas party at my Uncle Kent and Aunt Trudy's house. This year was a lot calmer than past years, but it was still a lot of fun to get together.
