twilight countdown!!!!

Halloween Party and HSM3...a great combo!

So needless to say we had a very busy saturday. It is at this point in the year that the months seem to just fly by! The girls had so much fun at the ward halloween party...they ate donuts on a string and went fishing in the haunted pond! A little trunk or treat and we left with three happy girls... then we raced home to change clothes and were off to see HSM3.The dancing was amazing... the songs are now being blasted in my hip mommy mini van...and being sang by the whole family. It was really cute to watch ashlyn and hannah get all gitty and be soooo excited to see it and ashlyn loved every second of the movie! Then the best part was on the way out we saw this car that looked just like THE CAR (the gaurdian) that bella drives in breaking dawn...yes I am sorry but WE can turn just about any experience into a "twilight" moment.... sigh! Obessed much...just a little. So then bella and I got really excited and squealed like six year olds and bella goes hurry take a picture ....we were scared that who ever owned the car would see we took some pictures really quick. I look really retarded so just look at the car!

lake michigan, ashlyn's first game, and more princess obessions!!!!

So to save on doing more than one post I decided to throw them ALL together! So bare with me!!!
Aaron had a long weekend so we decided to take advantage of it and explore past the ghetto a little bit. We had heard that the beach towns on lake michigan were beautiful... so we packed up the kids and headed out the three hours it took us to get to Lake michigan. The kids were really excited to go to the beach one last time before the dreaded cold sets in, and
we totally lucked out! It was 85 degrees!!! So we went start to the lake. It was so beautiful...and I am now happy to admit that not all of michigan sucks. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand and splashing around in the water. we saw the big red lighthouse, which was a highlight for me! Ate lunch in a dutch bakery on main street. And finished the weekend off with culvers and a movie in the back seat... We wished we could of stayed longer but after one night in the hotel with three kids...we were ready to have them sleep in their own bed!!!
This has become my signature shot of the girls.every time we go to the beach or a lake...ok any body of water I try to get them to sit long enough for me to take this picture. I dont know why I was like the way it looks.

OK so on the way back to the hotel we saw this neighborhood with really cute houses. Aaron and I love looking at houses and picking out what we like and dislike...and also to get ideas... if we ever decide to build a house ourselves...well we were driving thru gawking at all the beautiful houses and we turned the corner and I made aaron stop so I could take a picture. I loved this house!!! So maybe some day I will live on a lake in a house like this one!!! Well...a girl can dream! Aaron liked this one! Which one do you like better?

Ashlyn's First Soccer Game

Once again the good thing is she is having fun! And she looks
really cute in her uniform...which is points in my book. But she has not improved since practice. Oh well she loved being on a team with hannah. So after the game we decided to take the kids to ice cream...and I think they liked that more than playing in the game, well everyone but zach... he dropped his ice cream cone on the ground and spent the rest of the time pouting while we all rolled on the ground laughing at him.And alysse thought she had a cone too and ate part of the cup before we realized what she was doing and took it away from her! What a way to end the night.

Alysse the drama _Queen!

i thought that with time we would see the end of the princess obession but it seems to have gotten worse. It seems that detroit has worn off on alysse. And she is now going for ghetto fabulous! With her leporard pants ...which she picked out and her sexy jewelry! I dont know when this is ever going to end but it sure is cute! And if you look closely she is carrying around a foot skelton that aaron used in med. school. She loves that thing and she has named it "buddy"
