My House is Clean!

I know this sounds crazy but I am so content right now because my house is clean.  I still have tons of laundry, but my house is clean.  I can't help but smile.  So we've been busy, just like everyone.  But it's been fun.  Shawn and I went to Arizona with Rebecca about a week and a half ago.  It was great.

  We saw Andrea and Steve, did some shopping, a movie at the Biltmore and Andrea did my hair.   

Shawn went to a house auction and Andrea and I went for Gelato and Cupcakes.  Loved the Gelato, not a big fan of the Cupcakes, overpriced and not that great.  CrazyCakes here in Lethbridge has my heart with that one.  Rebecca did great on her first flight.  Good to know since we are heading to London, ON for Christmas to see my family. 

Speaking of Christmas, we did Ormston Cousin Christmas this weekend and before everyone came we decorated.  

The Girls had fun.  And it was great to see all the cousins (we missed Sierra though, lucky girl was in Mexico with her Mom & Dad, Karyn took some awesome pics of their trip), just having a blast.  They play so well together.  Good times.  Well enjoy the pics and my rambling on.  I really should head to bed.  I have YW's in Excellence tomorrow,  which really means the family does.  They are so great at supporting me in my calling.  Shawn even forgo a Flames game.  He really must love me!

Halloween is not just a's a week!

We have had so much fun this week and it's not even Halloween yet.  On Monday for FHE we carved pumpkins.  Spencer was here to help and the girls creativity was just flowing.  Emily was not a big fan of scooping out the pumpkin, (you'll see how unimpressed she is in the pics), but she loved drawing the faces on them.  She was very intricate with her fuzzy eyeballs and fuzzy eyes.  I had to take some creative control, but did my best to cut them they way she envisioned her finished product.  Julia got right in there and surprisingly stayed pretty clean.  Tuesday night we were Phantomed, not once but twice in the matter of 10 minutes.  The girls were so excited and couldn't wait to go out the following night and do the same.  I know I felt really loved and blessed to know that we have so many great friends.  Later after the girls finally went to sleep I made Rebecca's caterpillar costume.  Which I have to say I love!  I wanted to wake her up and put it on her, but you should never wake a sleeping baby.  Wednesday morning Julia had her Preschool Halloween Party.  Julia, Rebecca and I got dressed up.  They were too cute.  Later that day we picked Emily up from school and picked up our treats for Phantoming.  We had a blast and one of my Young Women Erica dropped by and helped us deliver our goodies.  The girls had fun running in their PJ's to the house, back to the car and then Erica or Emily would ring the doorbell and run!!!  We had to make sure we wouldn't get caught.  And for the most part I think we did a great job!  Today we will be making Caramel Apples and decorating cookies.  Emily has a Halloween Party tonight, and then tomorrow is the big day!  I've made a slideshow of our eventful week, ENJOY!

I'm Taking More Pictures...

Well since Saturday I have been taking a ton of pics.  
So let me update.  Saturday was fun. 

The Girls played Ponys

and Wii while I tried to figure out this blog thing for a bit.  

After lunch we went to the library for a Puppet Show.  
The girls saw Huckleberry the Dragon. 
 At the end they waited in line to give Huckleberry a hug.  
We took out some books and DVDs from the Library.  

Then the girls had a blast playing on the rocks for a bit outside the library.  We ran some errands.  

But the highlight was picking out one treat at the $ store.  It was so much fun to watch them decide what they should get.  In the end Emily found this gummy jewelry set with more then one piece of candy for her loonie, and Julia had to have the same.  
They were very proud of the whole event.

Let's Try This Thing

Well I've been inspired to try this blogging thing.  We'll see how it goes.  It's Saturday Morning and the Girls + Shawn are goofing around, he just stubbed His toe. Rebecca is asleep and "Sabrina" is on T.V.. We are planning out what we are going to do today, library, walk, make cookies, we're not quite sure yet.  So if all goes well I'll have some pictures posted and more to tell you about our day. - Antonia
