Dex is 7!!

Ohhhhhh how my baby has grown!!  Here is his annual side-by-side since he was 3 :)

I just can't say enough about this little boy.  He's so special and precious and I'm so proud to call him mine.  Happy 7th Birthday, Declan!!!!

 Had to throw Anna in there for one!!

Santa in the Neighborhood

We have donuts and hot chocolate with Santa in our neighborhood each year.  This year it was about 70 degrees outside and so we walked down in our summer clothes :-/ 

I probably should have tried a little harder on their outfits... I just let them pick something out, and of course now looking at the pictures, the florescent pink Minnie Mouse socks and Hemphill Swarm t-shirt might not have been the best choice for our one picture with Santa for the year :)

Waiting to see Santa!

He was not quite feeling the hug...

Halloween 2015

Halloween has come and gone!  Unbelievable... Here is a picture from earlier in October when we went to the pumpkin patch.  This was in the corn maze, which they loved :)

Here are our pictures from Saturday!  Anna and Dex were both ninjas.  For anyone who follows me on Instagram, you could have probably figured that out already ;-)

We even painted our pumpkins like ninjas.

Our old neighbors Cooper and Gavin came back to see us and trick or treat with us!  Yay!  Dex & Cooper.

All four of the kids semi looking in my direction!

It actually looks like Anna like Gavin here!  (in reality, she doesn't much) haha!   

See?  Haha!

I'm sure she was explaining something very important here.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!!  Now bring on Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS!!!  I feel like it'll be here in a week, the way this year's going!

So, Dex wanted to be a ninja for Halloween.  And they've both been into Ninjago for a while.  So, I figured it wouldn't be a waste of money to get a couple of costumes, even though Anna wanted to be something completely different for Halloween herself.  As it stands right now, or at least until her other costume comes in, she's changed her mind and wants to be the Blue Ninja ;) 

We even wore these costumes to the park today.  Oh my, these aren't made well enough to withstand a month of play before Halloween actually gets here!

Killin' those mushrooms in the front yard.  NINJAGO!

I loved her hair sticking out of her mask and had to get a picture of it.
