The boys both wanted to be football players this year. Elliot, of course, wore his WX jersey. I'm not sure how this qualifies as dressing up considering he wears that jersey just about every day. Charlie is representing the Utes. Or as we like to call him, black out Charlie. Again, does it qualify as a costume if you wear this same outfit around the house, to Grandma's and to sleep in? Lucy wanted to be a witch...again. This year we spiced it up with some spider tights. She's more of an adorable witch than a spooky one. She posed like this with absolutely no prompting. Seriously.Thankfully, the Utes scheduled their game out of town this year so Daddy could join us for trick or treating. And when I say us, I mean him and the kids. It was raining and freezing cold, mama doesn't roll like that. Despite the weather fun was had by all!

Remember when you made plans with your best friend to live across the street from each other so you would always be BFFs? Well lucky for me, my plans worked out. (Oprah doen't believe in luck so it must've been meant to be) To make things even better our kids are friends. We didn't even plan it but Charlie and Liza were born five days apart. The kicker is the babies of each family are now BFFs! They are in preschool together. They fake played tiny tot soccer together. They play together almost everyday. Today they bonded over a mani/pedi session. BFFs are the!

Princess Lucy

The princess celebrated her birthday in true princess fashion. There were girly presents galore...a purse, a pedicure kit, princess games, dresses, books, a singing tea set, money, ballerina nina and a dora game. Sheesh! We smashed up a pink and purple pinata. Lucy even took some serious swings. To top off the night she blew out her candles without cowering!

The night was made even sweeter with David, Nana & Grandpa skyping in to join the fun. Happy birthday our "fancy" Lucy! We sure love you.

How many questions does Charlie ask in a day? Let me answer the question with a question. How do I count that high even? Here's a sampling: What would you do with a million dollars? Where's Afghanistan? Why do people fight wars? How far away is Grantsville? Do you have any gum? What flavors? Why do people decorate for halloween? Have we seen both those wolves before? Do birds have rabies? What can diseases do? I could go on and on and on. And on.
