Here Jess, this picture is just for you! This was my back yard the morning after I did my last post on snow! We had a little over a foot, enjoy the warm weather!

Halloween Party

Kenna and Brynn are running with all of the other kids

Kylee, Jake, and Abi are watching all of the chaos

Kenna thrilled that she got her scary eye glasses

Here are all of the younger girl cousins
Miriam, Lia, Brynn, Kenna, and Claire along with Jakey

Yesterday we went to a fun little Halloween Party with Kenna's cousins on the Garlick side. I have to give serious props to Tiffany, the girl who hosted the party, she is amazing! She had food, crafts, and games and gift bags for I think for around 35. She was doing a fabulous job entertaining the kids, I know that Kenna had a blast. I think she liked watching the older kids playing more than anything else. Kenna is a little witch for Halloween this year, and she absolutely loves wearing her costume. I didn't even know she knew the word hat until she wanted her witch hat back on and kept on saying hat and pointing to her head. She loves her witch hat so much that the day we bought it she didn't want to take it off. She was wearing it in the car and ended up falling asleep with it on! I can't wait to go trick-or-treating with her this year, I think she will have so much fun.

First Snow of this Winter!

I woke up this morning and what did I see, oh yeah, that's right, SNOW!!!!! I didn't get outside and take a picture like I should have, apparently that is going to have to be the next storm as most of the snow has already melted, but I had about an inch and a half covering everything! I don't know if I am ready for this, I could use about another month of fall if at all possible. Winter is coming......

Busy Month, Big Slacker

It seems that as soon as things start getting cooler they start getting busier too. I don't know if it just me but we have had the busiest month. Another aspect that added to the chaos of this month is McKenna, Dave and I have all been sick, never fun.
I don't know about you, but I love October! I know I am bias since my birthday is this month, but that is not all of it. It is such a fun transition month, it goes from being warm outside to getting really chilly, it also gets dark so much sooner. Isn't it so much fun to go through your closet and get out all of your sweaters and scarves? I love it, it is like having an all new wardrobe!
Even those who don't enjoy the fall have to admit that the leaves are amazing! I love our gorgeous mountains! They are the most amazing colors this time of year!
I have to admit that I am not quite ready for winter, but I LOVE the FALL!

17 Months Today!

I can not believe that McKenna is actually 17 months old! It seems like yesterday was her first birthday, and last week she was born. This may not be all that exciting to anyone else, but I wanted to make a list of all of the things she is saying now, that way I would have a record. It seems every day she is picking up new words, for example today she finally started saying thank you. Kenna is such a Daddy's Girl, the only words that she will string together are "Hi Dada," or "Bye Dada."

Kenna's Words:
Whoa (her first word)
Thank you
Ash (as in Aunt)

Also, I have to include the animal sounds she can make: Monkey, Lion, Tiger, Bear, Owl, Cow, Dog, Fish, Goat, Sheep, Snake, Crocodile, and Rabbit
I am sure that a missed a few of them, I will have to update this as I think of them, but I think this is pretty accurate
