November 17, 2008.

In case any of you are planning on going to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua, I thought I better warn you that it is a major tear jerker. We took the kids to see it for our FHE activity on Monday. The little dog in the movie has her plans thwarted over and over so that by the time we were 2/3 of the way through the movie, Brylee was in tears. She was so frustrated for the little dog. I felt bad that she was so sad, but it was kind of funny that she was so wrapped up in that silly movie. She must be Grammy's grand-daughter. She has a real soft spot for those little animals :)

Codi had her baby on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. She was 7lb 2.2 oz and 21 in long. They named her Napuaokalani. Pronounced Nah-poo-ah-oh-ku-lon-eee. She has already been dubbed Napua, noki, and loni. We'll see what sticks. Anyways, Congrats Codi and Kainoa!!!

Party Time!

I think the kids had a lot of fun at the party. I know mine enjoyed it at least. I was running around so crazy that I didn't get pictures until everything was winding down and didn't get pictures of everything. (There were fourteen kids at this party!!) Basically we had a carnival. There was ring toss ( a glow-in-the-dark ring around a witches hat), bean bag throw ( halloween bean bags tossed in witches cauldrons), pin the wart on the witches nose, and musical squares (run around 'til the music stops then pick a halloween picture and stand on it). We also hunted for bone necklaces, decorated pumpkin sugar cookies and finished with one of my favorite donald duck halloween cartoons. It was crazy but lots of fun. Happy Halloween everyone!

Kade 'borrowed' the superhero cape I made. He wore it to work this year for Halloween. He told everyone he was a little boy. It was kind of fun. The cape would fly out behind him as he rode his bike:)

We started off our evening by first trick-or-treating in our old ward. We had a jack-o-lantern , a fairy-princess unicorn rider, a jaguar, a little devil, a vampire, and winnie the pooh. Then I went home to answer the door for our own trick-or-treaters and make dinner while Kade took the kids around our new neighborhood. The kids made quite a haul and seemed pleased with what they got.Then we had a rush dinner and got ready to welcome all our little guests for our Halloween party!

Brielle and Brancyn just love each other (at least until one or the other start inadvertently kicking or hitting the other). They smile and talk to each other and tonight they were holding hands. I barely caught the picture before they let go. What cuties!

Kayson, Brylee, Brancyn, and I have started to go to the Nature Park to feed the ducks while waiting for Liberty to finish her piano lessons. There are a few of the animals that have become quite aggresive. I caught a fun video of it here. Sorry about the smudges. I didn't realize that some little finger had touched my lens-thus the smudge. I think it kind of messed up the focus on the camera, but you'll still get a kick out of the video. Make sure you turn it up. Kayson's laugh is half the fun!

Liberty stayed home from school sick today. I told Kayson that he needed to stay out of her room so that he wouldn't get sick, so he parked himself right outside of her door and looked at books with her quietly and talked to her so she wouldn't be bored. What a good little brother. I hope one day Liberty realizes just how much he loves her.
