HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!!!

We had my mom and Aunt Karolyn's annual grandkid Halloween party on Oct 25th. There were lots of games and prizes and tons of treats and food. It always is a blast and we have tons of fun and get really stuffed. This year Preston even decided to copy his big sister Gentri and 'bob' for apples. It was the funniest thing ever! Except he didn't really want to go for the apples, he was just wanting to taste the yummy backwash water left over from the other 7 kids that had already gone. Everytime he would come up from the water he would lick his lips and say "yum!" Silly boy!!
Even though I woke up Halloween morning feeling not too great, (my throat and sinus'), we still had a fun day. This Halloween was a lot more fun because we had Harlee and Gentri and Preston is a little bit older, although he still had no idea what was going on. Harlee was a Butterfly Fairy, Gentri was a Angel Fairy(kinda not really sure), and Preston was a little worker(or Daddy). First, we went to our ward Trunk or Treat. I stayed at the car and the girl's and Marimom walked around to the other cars with the kids. A lot of the people just let you pick a candy out of their bowl, so Preston would pick his (a lollipop or twizzlers) and then he would sit down and want to eat it right then. When we got home from that the girls went out with the cousins around the neighborhood and got plenty of candy. My mom and I took Preston to a couple houses up the street, but then it started raining and Preston just wanted to eat his candy, so we just decided to come home. The one year we actually didn't have snow on Halloween, it had to rain, but kids didnt mind at all, at least it wasn't freezing and windy. We let Preston eat a few pieces of his candy that night and boy was he excited and crazy the rest of the night. We now have to hide his trick-or-treat pumpkin because he knows exactly what's in it and that is all he wants to eat. (hmm, sounds like his mother) We hope everyone had a fun Halloween and cant wait to see everyone's pictures!

Preston also got some cool glow in the dark skeleton pj's that his Daddy thinks are totally awesome. Preston loves them too. We take him the pantry so he can see them glow in the dark.

I am now unemployed...and that's a good thing!

I officially had my last day today working at Home Depot. I'm FREE!! After three years I have had enough of retail and am ready to just be a mom! And I'm tahnkful that it is possible for me to do so. I no longer have to wear this dang orange apron anymore, yay!! I keep thinking I'm gonna get bored and not know what to do, but with silly Preston these days, he keeps me plenty busy and with a new baby coming, I'm sure I'll find ways to occupy my time. Now I can actually sit down and USE all the scrapbook stuff that I just like to purchase but not use...haha! (but with 2 kids we'll see if that will happen or not) I'm not gonna know quite what to do on Saturdays now...I guess clean and hang out with the family. That will be a nice change!!
