hApPY HaLLoWeEn!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! this is one of my favorite holidays, why you might ask.....

well of course, because I get to dress up with my kids!! :) (and also cause I work at the school and we have a parade that people from the community can come and watch. I don't have any pics of the parade, cause of course I was in it, but maybe my mom took some, and I can steal some from her. but the others are at school during the halloween parties in Porters and Braxtons classrooms.

Bryn walked (more like I carried her) through the parade with me. arrr matey!

this is out of place... its at my moms when we went trick or treating

group shot. yes we were all pirates except one. (didnt realize that one till I had bought all the costumes. oopps) it was pretty funny though cause he would tell everyone he was a "stow away" on our ship.

this is a couple kids from Brax's class.
Easton, Tanner, Brax, and Bridger

We started it off with of course.... food!! boy was it delicious! yummy! we then bobbed for apples, (yes even I did it,and I was the first to get an apple. thank you, thank you! but sorry no pics of me) then we painted and carved pumpkins, decorated cupcakes and make blood shot eyeballs!

Bryn was hesitant about doing it. here she is thinking about it.

finally deciding to dive in...

Bryn painting oh so carefully. and of course its....PINK

Stockton decided Bryn needed to have some body art :) they all had so much fun painting (yes I did take her pants off, less mess! paints easier to get off of legs than clothes :) )

10 Things I Can't Live Without....

Jennie tagged me on 10 things I cannot live without...well most of these are things that I just simply DON'T want to live without!! (they are my comforts) :)

#1: of course my husband Josh.
I dont know where I would be without him. He is the best thing that has happened to me and he is the best father to our kids.

#2: definitely my kids! they are my everything. of course, they can be little turkeys at times, but I still wouldnt trade them for anything.

#3: the church, I wouldnt be here where I am without it. (I put this picture of Christ instead of an actual church, because I absolutely love this pic, it is one of my very very favorites)

#4: lets just say I have serious issues with this....I LOVE LOVE LOVE to shop. whether it be for me, Josh, the boys, or of course my favorite Brynlee. its just sooo much fun to buy for little girls!

#5: I seriously could just eat chocolate all day long! it doesn't really matter what kind, but I do get on kicks where I only feel like a certain kind, then it switches to another kind. I feel like eating some :)

#6: my cell phone. well actually any phone will do for me. whether its talking or texting, I like it

#7: DR. PEPPER....yummy! I seriously could not live without it. if I don't get atleast one everyday, lets just say I am not the happiest person :)

#8: um hello, blogging! I seriously could sit in front of my computer for hours at a time. if you ask my hubby, he would say I already do! (somedays its close) whether its blogging, emails, shopping, or even browsing, I'm there.

#9: DVR... I record all my shows I can't get to and watch them at night or after I get home from work. (cause the boys are still at school and Bryn's taking a nap)

#10: my camera. ya I wish mine was this nice! but I love taking pictures of the kids. (so I can blog about it later) well some of them anyways. but its so I can scrapbook them, if I could ever keep caught up!!

Well there it is....all my wonderfull things I DONT want to live without. Now I tag.... Rachel, Lindsay B., Amy M, Liz, and anyone else wanting people to know about your crazy must haves!!
