The zoo

We went to the zoo all by oursleves on free zoo day. It wasn't bad...except for the parking. We ran into a couple friends from our old ward in denver. That was fun.

The kids enjoyed looking at the animals and being outside. We even got to watch the sea lion show.

I thought this was a pretty cool picture. This is Kambria's profile with the lion drinking the water in the background. Not bad!

My birthday...only a month late

Thursday October 15, 2009This is what I woke up to! CINNAMON rolls!!!! It was wonderful...especially since Bryan had to work that day! He got up early and made them for me and decorated! Kambria woke up and came in my room and woke me up by saying lets go see all your presents and balloons! They are out in the kitchen for your birthday! Way to ruin the surprise! But it was wonderful for her to remember my birthday too!

This is Weston folding his arms! He does it so well!

This was the kitchen table with all My presents!I got custom orthotics from Bryan! What a surprise. He had someone from work make them for me and what a Sucker I was thinking he was taking a mold of my foot for someone to practice on at work! I got makeup and face lotion...only costing $4 by the way! I even have Bryan saving money now! ;o)
And I got new jeans!!! I also got two boxes of Tulips and Bryan's help to plant them. This is the first time I have done tulips so hopefully they will turn out!
That night I thought we were not going to do ANYTHING fun for my birthday...but low and behold our friends Trinity and Wes come over to have dinner with us and celebrate! It was something different and fun! Thanks guys!This was my birthday Pie that MaryEllen made me since she knows that cakes are not my most favorite! and Weston and Kambria had to help me open my presents...I got a wonderful Wreath to go on my front door, Some jewelry, and some underwear! It was great!
I later celebrated with my mother and father and they got me some hand weights! Just what I had asked them for! Thanks!


So I know this is a little late, but I figured rather than trying to get caught up right away on all the other posts I have been meaning to do...I would just start today and move forward...and then maybe once in a while finish an old post too...

so now for Halloween. This month we did a lot to try and have the kids as excited as we could. We made sugar cookies and decorated them:

We cut pumpkins twice.

Once at our house:

And once at grandma & grandpas house:

We had a Halloween party at Kambrias school. Forgot to take pictures of that one.

Went to the ward Halloween party: This year we were the clan from Peter Pan. Kambria was Tinkerbell, Bryan was captain hook...with a real prosthetic hook and all! Mom was Wendy and Weston was Peter Pan. We thought it turned out really good!
Kambria even got to go on a hay ride all by herself!

Then on Halloween we went over to Pat and Ashly's house and had dinner with them, took the kids tick or treating...which Weston and Lydia even got into...

Peter PanTinkerbelland then we made Doughnuts together! They were SO good and fun to make. Pat had made the dough earlier, but we got to decorate them and eat them. Kambria even helped!

We tried to celebrate my 30th birthday earlier in the month...but we all had been sick so it got cancelled! Pat and Ashley were kind enough to make me a big doughnut and sing happy birthday to me! It was quite he surprise and was fun to celebrate again! Thanks guys!
