I cut and colored my hair the other day. She thinned it out a lot. It's nice to not have soooooo much hair. I went pretty short in the back. I like it but I can't pull it back in a pony tail.

Here's Coop in my witch hat. He was being pretty cute. He would put the hat on and then he would dance. He has such a cute personality:)

Nana and Papa came to our house for dinner for the last time before their big move to Arizona. We are getting really sad to see them go. They move today:(

Uncle Scott and Aunt Rachel came and played with us too!

We went on our last Rhino ride of the year. It was a beautiful day. Who would've ever thought that we would have a snow covered ground a few days later. Gracie and her cousin Whitney rode in Uncle Jake's Rhino with Aunt Kristi.

Neither one of them lasted very long:)


Me and Cooper

I really got into the spirit of Halloween this year. Here I am in my first costume, the wicked witch of the west. I had a church party, and I dressed as a Zombie cheerleader from East High, tribute to High School Musical. The costume is my mom's old pep squad uniform from high school. I'm not sure if Cooper liked it very much:)
And last but not least, my actual Halloween costume. A witch! AGAIN...

My sister in law was the only other adult in the family to dress up. Thanks Nat for having Halloween spirit with me:)

Gracie was a lion. Here are the two kids with their cousin Kinzie before we went trick or treating down main street.
I love this costume!!!

We met up with some friends.

I think Cooper had a really fun Halloween!

Kinzie and Cooper on our way home from trick or treating on Main St. Gracie's cousin Amber in her little Mermaid costume. Carly is behind and she is Tinker Bell.
Me and my sister in-law, Natalie, dressed as witches.
Gracie didn't like keeping her hood on. I'm not sure if there was much of a difference between the hood and her hair:)

Baby Rex in his Yoda costume.

We threw all the kids into the back of the truck. It was a good way to keep track of all of them. Gracie some how got out and snatched some candy. This is her way of creeping back into the truck, candy in hand, hoping that no one saw her:)

Gracie and her cousin Carly walking around at the trunk or treat.

This is daddy and the kids after trick or treating, enjoying the treats!

Cooper loves his Grandpa Clark. Sometimes he chooses to be with Grandpa over mom. It's sweet to see those two together. This is Gracie on picture day. It's sad that such a cute picture was taken in front of a wheel well:)

I know it's been a long time since my last update. I'll try to get better. Here is a preview of Gracie in her Halloween costume. She's a lion:) Coop is the cutest scarecrow I've ever seen!
Here I am as the wicked witch of the west.

This is Camden and Gracie in their Halloween costumes. Even though Gracie is going to be a lion for Halloween, my mom really wanted her to wear this witch costume at least once this year. The girls never get to trick or treat together so we got them all dressed up and let them trick or treat at Nana's house. I think it was good practice for the big day.

We had a blizzard in October!!! I can't remember the last time it snowed this early. The kids had so much fun. We had snow ball fights and we went to visit Uncle Bryan and meet the newest member of his family. His mule:) As Ryan would say, "look at those handsome ears". Can you believe the snow? YIKES!!!
Kimi and Camden were in town visiting from South Carolina.

Ryan recently went to Yellowstone/Jackson Hole with our brother-in-law Brandon.

Gracie and I made cookies the other day. She is such a big helper and she loves her job, putting in the chocolate chips... and also cleaning the beaters:)
I was so excited to get a picture of Gracie and Cooper in their new church outfits but Coop wanted nothing to do with it.
Gracie loves getting her picture taken these days. She is growing up so fast. I can't believe that she is already 3.

My mom and I had the opportunity to go and see the "So You Think You Can Dance" tour. We had so much fun!!! We went to the Cheesecake Factory with my friend Katie and her mom. We had a little mom and daughters night out:) Yummy food!!!
We had amazing seats thanks to my sister Kimi.

I came outside the other day to the cutest site. Ryan was washing his Rhino and Gracie was washing her truck. You can see how much this little girl admires her daddy!
