Kathryn Saves The Day

So, it turns out maybe I won't look like the worst mom in the whole world, since Grandma Kathryn saved me and took some photos on Alyna's big day this year. Enjoy!!!

Happy 6th Birthday Alyna!

Okay, so I feel terrible that I didn't blog about Alyna's birthday! In August, Alyna turned 6 years old. Unfortunately for Lyna, she happened to have her birthday right in the middle of Mommy's morning sickness, so her birthday was less than stellar this year. Luckily, she had a big party last year so I didn't feel so bad. We were in Ohio visiting for her birthday, so we had some small family festivities and then Michael took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese. I think Alyna still had a great time and was very understanding to the situation. And on top of it all, I took zero pictures on her birthday, what a mean mom!!! Anyway, so here are a few of her growing up these last 6 years instead!

Halloween 2010

We had some great fun on this year's Halloween. Friday night we were able to go down to Norman for a trunk or treat down there. It was fun to see old friends and the kids got way too much candy! This year we had Batgirl, Batman, and of course Robin!

Saturday night we did a bit of trick or treating around the block. We didn't do too much since we have so much candy from Friday, but we had fun and the kids loved it! Lucas was especially funny to watch as he got the hang of what exactly we were doing!

Since Halloween fell on a Sunday this year, we didn't do much celebrating today, but we did have a fun Halloween "feast" when we got home from Church. It included caramel apples...

Mummy dogs...

and Bones and Blood (breadsticks and marinara).

The kids got a big kick out it and these were all so easy to do!

Halloween Family Home Evening

Last week we did our annual pumpkin carving family home evening. This year, the kids painted pumpkins and Michael and I each carved one. Mine was really simple and Michael's took all night long! But, it turned out really neat! The photos really don't do it justice, getting good photos of Jack O' Lanterns is SO hard!

The Piedmont Pumpkin Patch

This last week we were able to go to The Piedmont Pumpkin Patch with our ward playgroup. This small town pumpkin patch is really awesome! They had a fun science and math lesson (did you a pumpkin will always float no matter how heavy it is?), a story time, a little train ride, and some great snacks! We also got to take home a lot of pumpkins for carving and painting. The kids really loved this place and I thought it was a lot of fun as well!

Disney on Ice

Last month during the Great State Fair of Oklahoma we were able to attend Disney on Ice. The kids had so much fun, especially Lyna seeing all of the princesses! All of the Disney princesses were in attendance, save Sleeping Beauty, we still can't understand what happened to her that night...maybe she was sick?!? I didn't take very many photos, as we were actually watching the show, but here are a couple...

The Science Museum

One thing I love about living in Oklahoma is their science museum. While Ohio has one of the best science museums out there, I find it kind of a pain to go to since it is right smack dab in downtown Columbus. The OKC museum however, is very accessible and still incredibly fun, the kids love it. It is always nice to have a place to go on hot, rainy, etc. days!

Soccer Happenings

Alyna started her first year of fall soccer this year. She has had a lot of fun and scored several goals! She has played in about 6 games now with her team, the Ladybugs, and has a couple more before the season end. Michael and I have been really proud of her, she is very dedicated to it. Here are some photos of her in many different games...
