Shopping and a Party

I hate that I only have time to blog once every couple of weeks but honestly I have to make myself sit down and update this blog. These past few weeks have been crazy. It started with an awesome weekend away with my mom, sister and some great friends. We went on our annual shopping trip to Cincinnati and went to 3 outlets and 2 malls. Like every year, it was a great trip and I got a lot of my Christmas shopping done. We also got to have dinner with my brother and his girlfriend, Laura, which is always nice.

Here is a picture of us at a late lunch on Sunday before heading home -

And here is the picture when we got home before we unloaded -  

Keep in mind this includes the purchases for only 3 of us. We had a great time like we do every year and I can't wait to see where we are going next year. HERE is our post from last year.

Last week we also celebrated my dad's birthday on Tuesday. He turned the big 6-0 this year! We celebrated by going to our normal spot, Puerto Vallarta. He also had to wear the hat like everyone else.

We not only went out to eat to celebrate his birthday, we threw a BIG surprise party for him on Friday night. It turned out so good and he was so surprised. The party turned out great and the kids had a blast dancing all night.

On Saturday we went to a Halloween party and had a great time listening to a live band. Unfortunately I have no pictures from the night but we didn't miss much because Aaron and I didn't dress up this year. We are dressing up for sure next year and I have already told Kristin and Jonathan that they are going too.

On Sunday morning we had breakfast at Mom and Dad's before Jonathan and Laura had to go back to school and I got this cute picture of Blake singing a song to Papa from my phone.

I will end this post but I will be posting one more post tonight with our night of trick or treating.

Annual Huber's Trip

Last Monday we made our annual trip to Huber's to pick up pumpkins for our porch. This time it was actually with the daycare because the kids had a field trip scheduled. It was a beautiful day and we all had a great time.

The kids LOVED the big slide! They both went down them about 15 times each.

Even Daddy went down!

They were both so proud of their pumpkins!

Blog Hiatus

Well here I go again...another short hiatus from blogging. Life has yet to slow down these past few weeks. School is still in full force. I do have to brag about my A on my finance test. I studied almost 7 hours for it so I think it paid off. My other class doesn't have test but a lot of work outside of class. After next week we will be half way through the semester!!
Last weekend my girlfriends and I had a nice weekend away. We headed to Nashville on Friday after work to celebrate all of us turning 30 this year. It was so great to spend time with my girls who mean so much to me but I don't get to see a lot of. We all went to school together since we were in middle school so we are a pretty close group. You never realize how much you miss people until you spend some time with them. We had a great weekend but we can all tell that we are getting older!
On the 12th, we went out to eat for Aaron's birthday. I am such a slacker because I normally post on the day of someone's birthday, at least a picture. I actually went to eat with the family and then went to class from 7:30-9:30 so I kind of have an excuse :) We celebrated again this past weekend and some family came over for pizza (Aaron's fav) and Saturday we played poker until 2am. Kristin, Jeremy, Jonathan, Aaron, and I played and I think Jonathan came out the big winner for the night!
My grandmother, who I have talked about just recently, is doing better. Her memory will never be the same but she is starting to eat more and getting a little more strength each day. She recently moved to a different place so I know it will be so much better for her. We can already tell a huge difference in her.

We are also still battling Strep in this house. Kylie had it first and then Blake. Kylie had a temperature yesterday and was up all night so we took her back to the doctor today and she still has it!! Uggg! I am just afraid at this rate that she is a carrier or even worse will have to get her tonsils out :( Hopefully her new medicine will make her better very soon and hopefully Blake won't get it again! Grandpa Roger has been a lifesaver and has kept them this whole time they have been sick. Thank you, PopPop!!
I also was one of the lucky ones who got the new iPhone 4s on Friday! I was due for an upgrade so I decided to go for it. I LOVE it...especially the camera on it. Some of the pictures below are from the phone and you can't even tell. A-Mazing!

This weekend we also discovered a new song that Kylie and Blake sing at school. Kylie was humming a song that I thought sounded familiar and I finally realized what it was. Baby Bumble Bee! I loved that song when I was little! So with my new phone, I used the video to get her singing it. Remember with the iPhone 4 there is a camera on the front of the phone so you can see yourself and you can tell she is watching herself sing. So cute! You can ignore my awful singing :) Be sure to mute my playlist so you can hear her cute little voice. At this rate I think she is going to be a professional singer!!

I captured this picture this morning. Kylie and Daddy were sleeping the same way and I thought it was so cute!

2 Cute Videos

Below are two very cute videos of Kylie Rose. The first video is her performing Roll Call from Micky Mouse Clubhouse. She says everyone's name and she is so excited about it! Don't forget to mute my playlist on the bottom of my blog to hear her sweet voice!


This video is of Kylie when she should be taking a nap. She decided to stand up in her bed and perform for us. This video is from my phone looking at the video monitor. I think we have our hands full!
