Happy Halloween!!

Say hello to Mr. Incredible and our little Witch!
I've never seen Ethan so excited for night time to come! He couldn't wait to trick or treat! We tried to make the day go by fast! We made some spider cookies...
and visited Grandma's to get pictures with all the cousins...
He drove us nuts half the day with his craziness but it paid off seeing him run out the door with Kurt ready to yell "Trick or Treat! It was pouring rain but it didn't bother him a bit! He was so excited!!

After he got home we got in Halloween jammies and sent him to work answering the door. I think he was just as excited to put candy in every one's bag as he was to get his own candy! I don't think I had to answer the door once, except while he was gone! Then the kiddos went to bed, and we enjoyed the rest of our night!
I think we have enough candy to last a life time! Ethan got the trick or treating down pat....distract all the nice people with your charm and take as much candy as possible while distracted! I guess the kids pretty smart! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

The Festives

We've had lots of fun Halloween Festives! For some reason I always love this time of year! I love the beginning of fall, the excitement of dressing up, the Halloween decorations, and of course the big bags of Tootie Fruities at the store. Here are a few thing we've done so far...

The witches at Gardner Village! Ethan and Maysen were not into finding the witches, they have more fun running like hooligans all over the place.

Then the Walter's hosted the annual neighborhood Halloween party! It was a blast which included a heated game of Pictionary. Boys vs. girls and I'd have to say girls won, even with some random drawings of a blueberry muffin! Tyler might beg to differ, but I still believe we won! I didn't get pictures of everyone but I will be stealing pictures from Jamie and Janai! I love getting together with everyone from the neighborhood, just love being with friends! We went as cowboys!! Thank you to my hubby for always appeasing me and dressing up!

Next was the ward party, which sadly I didn't get any pictures. Reese was dressed up a tad, but I figured real Halloween pictures will come tomorrow!

And yesterday was Ethan's pre-school party! They get to go out on to 12600 s. and wave to all the cars! It's hilarious! They think it's the coolest thing ever!! All the cars honk and the kids go crazy!! This first picture of Ethan cracks me up....I keep wondering who that kid is! Frankenstein and Mr. Incredible had a blast at pre-school!!

Family Pictures

While we were in St. George we were able to get updated family pictures! I think they turned out super cute!!
(Of course the binki appears yet again in pictures!! Why do they always decide to get mad right in the middle of pictures!?)
Thanks to my talented sister in law, Mindy, for taking all the pictures!

Big Girl

We are lovin' the Bumbo!!
Hopefully we can stop that bald spot that is starting to form from rubbing her head back and forth!! Such a big girl!!

St. George with the Jenkins

Kurt's whole fam decided to take a trip down to good old St. George. It was so much fun having the entire family together. We had a great time. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the family, but for now here is what I have.

We had tons of fun hitting up ghetto Fiesta Fun...
Love these two pictures of Reese. You have the "annoyed look" and the "happy look."
Hit up The Cheesecake Factory and the strip in Vegas....
play at an awesome park....
and watch Landon and Brandon cross the finish line in the Tour de St. George (100 mile bike ride). They did AWESOME!!
We also were able to get family pictures done (coming later), hit up "Tarzan" at Tuacahn (loved it), eat yummy food, and just enjoy good company!! Gotta love family!!

Wasatch Women's 10 K

Yesterday I ran in the Wasatch Women's Love Your Body 10K with my cute mother in law! It was a beautiful run down at Thanksgiving Point. The run was supposed to be 6.2 miles but apparently the officer lead us down the wrong path making the run an extra mile! My mind mentally gave up at 6.2, but somehow I pushed through. I crossed the finish line at 1 hour 7 minutes making it a 9.24 minute mile! Big improvement from my 10K last year! Now it's off to train for the SL marathon! YIKES! Anyone have any advice??

2 Months

Reese had her two month check up today!! The doc said she looked great and is still a small little peanut. Apparently Kurt and I produce babies who like to puke...and puke A LOT! Hopefully she will eventually start to keep more of it in her tummy and not all over her outfits! Here are her stats:
Weight: 9.4 lbs - 15%
Height: 22 in. - 40%
Head: 50%
She has been such a fun baby!! I love this stage where they start smiling! She is so happy when she wakes up and loves to coo and smile at us! How can you resist these two big dimples!? And I hope those baby blues stay and look like my moms. My guess is they won't, but for now they are fun to look at. She has been a great little sleeper for me. She started sleeping eight hours during the night at 5 weeks and at about 7 weeks she started giving me 10 hours a night! I love her to pieces and can't wait for each new little stage! I've decided that the second child is a tough little thing. I'm going to laugh when she starts stealing all of Ethan's will be payback to the countless times he drives them on her face and all over her head. As much as he's constantly right in her face he usually gets pretty big smiles from her!
I can't not post about my cute little Ethan! He loves preschool and is constantly learning. He cracks me up every day with the things that he talks to me about. He will talk to anyone and tell them our whole life story while he's at it (do you think he takes after his mother?). He is a great big brother and is always helping me out. He makes us laugh every day with his fun little personality but at the same time can be a little stubborn thing and never listen! I love him so much and am so glad he's my little buddy!
I'm so grateful for my two sweet kids! I don't know what I would do without them...even on the days where I think I'm going to pull out my hair! I sure love them to pieces.
