I'm on a blogging roll I guess you could say! Haven't had internet for awhile because of a downed modum, so I'm getting all caught up now! Halloween was so much fun this year! I absolutely love this holiday! I love anything creepy, scary, and most of all, I LOVE scaring my kids! What a mean parent I am. I know. So this year we decorated the yard and my awesome nephew sat outside in a mask and scared kids coming to trick or treat all night! What a blast it was! Kids have to earn their treats when they come to our house. My kids went candy collecting with all of their cousins and got all the candy their little hearts desired. Saxon was Nacho Libre, Kael was a Zombie Army Guy, Vie was a football player, and Cache was a Skunk (my little stinker!). It was a great Halloween! Grandma Higbee put on a fantastic Halloween party the night before too. Complete with games, food, pumpkin carving, and a spook alley. Kids had a blast (parents did too!).


Anyone who knows me knows that I love this time of year! The colors, the weather, the coziness of it all! Thought I'd share a few pics of fall!

Family Vacation!

We are a big trip family! LOVE to go on trips together. This year has been a rough year for trips though. B has been really busy with work and we haven't had a lot of time to travel like we would like to. So, for the first time this year, we did our "big" family vacation to one of our favorite places, the Oregon Coast. We love how beautiful it is up there and we love getting a chance to see Grandma-Great and Grandpa-Great! We had such a great time. Seeing the beautiful coastline, going to lighthouses, the aquarium, whale watching, shopping, relaxing in the condo, and just being together. It's always hard to come home from a good trip. I think I could be on a perpetual vacation for the rest of my life and be completely happy. So, here are a few pics of the trip!
