Brandon took Taylor to her very first Princess Party at our local library. She was delighted to be surrounded by her "friends": Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White, and Ariel.
This was at the Festival of Tree's in Salt Lake. We couldn't believe how many trees, ginger-bread houses, etc. there were up for sale all to be donated to the Primary Children's Hospital. It was hard not to be moved to tears as some of the trees were dedicated to certain children...some of which had already passed away.
Aren't our Angels just Angels?
Here is "Jesus' House." It was such a fun Family Home Evening!

Above, you could touch the sting rays...Taylor never wanted to touch them but she enjoyed putting her hands in the water! She later did touch a Starfish but my hands were full of squirmy Callie so I couldn't take a picture!

Here is the final product. Taylor's is on the left, then Callie's, Brandon's Pirate (notice the patch) and Tina's lip girl--hee hee.
Below are the pictures we took right before we went to a friends house for a little Halloween fun. Aren't the girls beautiful? Callie is getting the hang of this picture thing by saying "cheese."
Our little Cinderella and Tinkerbell--THANKS Nana for making some sweet costumes!
This is at Brandon's work party. I am a princess as well and Brandon is Prince Charming. He said it was quite the task being a Prince of three Princesses!
After our pot-luck dinner and watching of "Charlie Brown: The Great Pumpkin," we always have a trick or treat event at each classroom door.
Here we are finally celebrating Halloween on Oct. 31st (the rest was just warming up)! We went to our ward trunk-or-treat. It started with a fun parade of all the kids and their costumes. Then Brandon took the girls around to each of the cars for some candy while I stayed at our van and handed out the candy. Afterwards we enjoyed some yummy donuts and hot cocoa. Later we wanted to give the girls a chance to actually go trick-or-treating so we went to a dozen homes and let them walk up the driveway and ring the doorbells themselves. They are truly adorable! What a fun Halloween!

Cabinets, Cabinets, and more cabinets!!!
The pictures are kind of dark because I took them when the sun was going down...but there are a few that I took with the flash and they came out better.
Brandon got a phone call from the same guy that he made that gigantic frame for a couple of months ago. He asked Brandon if he'd ever done cabinets before and of course Brandon said "no." He responded with, "want to learn and I'll pay you?"
From that moment on Brandon hired Tucker and together they labored many days and nights (some times even till 2 am or on Saturday for about 15 hours straight). Tina did her fair share of work as well as she handled most of the staining.
All in all it was a good experience and helped us all out financially. We think they turned out beautiful but only time will see (meaning...I hope they don't fall on somebody and kill them!). Just Kidding!!!

The girls got to ride a pony, slide down a huge slide, take a train ride through the corn maze, do a hay ride where kids in costumes throw candy at you, go through a fun blown-up maze that was "haunted", and pick out a pumpkin to keep. Oh yeah, we also got some yummy doughnuts and hot chocolate. It was such a fun night and the girls just loved it.
**NOTICE THE GIRL TEXTING WHILE SHE IS IN CHARGE OF TAKING TAYLOR ON THE PONY RIDE**--What did Sister Dalton say, "Ever TEXTING and never coming to the knowledge of the truth!"
This is just a very short video of Taylor kind of chasing the pig. We just thought it was funny to hear the pig squeel like it did! You should have heard it when Brandon picked it up...scary!
