My sweet little Belle.... i had so much fun making maddie's dress this year! and i think she had just as much fun wearing it! we even put makeup on her (which she loved)!!

and doesn't she just make the perfect snow white?!! my mom made her dress and i think she did a fabulous job!!! i just can't look at her in her cute little costume without giggling :) haha!


they were all smiles when they got ready in their costumes :)

the warner fam... no theme this year but we all had fun dressing up!!

walking in the parade at the trunk or treat.. they came home with a bundle of candy!!

i was the pumpkin carver this year... i love the hello kitty one :)


my kids ate way too much candy .. mia was bouncing off the walls late into the night!! bed time came much later that night :)

we had so much fun in california in august that we just couldn't wait a whole year to do it again so we went back and pretty much did the same trip again.. and yes, it was just as fun as the first time !!!


the second we got to grandma's house maddie ran up to my mom and whispered in her ear, "can we PLEEAASE go to Disneyland.. it would make me soooo happy!" and here we are again at disneyland... it was so worth it :) lines were short with it being so rainy all weeklong.. luckily the day we went was blue skies!!


so happy to meet tigger :)


and mia wasn't so sure of winnie the pooh... which is why i'm in the picture holding her above :)


this pretty much sums up our day right here :) a sucker in one hand and popcorn in the other... it was an everything goes kinda day.... the best kind!!! you want a sucker before lunch?.. you got it.... popcorn too.. coming right up :) Its so much fun to spoil your kids every once in a while :)


my little lover :)


Mia was a grandma's girl all week... seriously wanting nothing to do with me :) i finally got to enjoy my dinners in peace :)




grandma with 4 of the 6 grand babies ...


Chuck-e-cheeses (sp?) we wanted to go to the pumpkin patch but it was rainy and super muddy... so that ended up being a no go.. but we wanted to do something fun for the kids that day so we headed over to play games at the cheesiest place in town :) it was tons of fun! i LOVE ticket games... me and maddie were running around that place having so much fun!! maddie loved this horse ride .. it was cute :)


maddie's BFF.... haha! we spent a good five minutes talking to this cute little manequin!! maddie gave her a name that i can't remember and she wanted a picture with her friend! it was pretty funny.. people were totally staring at us :) i wonder why ?!! mia befriended the dog ...


**Random extra** i made these halloween cookies and i thought they turned out pretty cute :) gotta love jack!

My sister in law is truly amazing!!!! we recently went to my nieces 5th birthday party and this is what we enjoyed....

a beautifully decorated table with the perfect birthday girl chair at the end :) and don't you just LOVE the paper lanterns!!!

the cutest table setting EVER !!! i was in love with these place mats .. and real china for the kids to have their tea party :)

the birthday girl of course in the sweetest alice in wonderland costume you have ever seen.. isn't she a doll.. and she was the sweetest birthday girl hostess :)

the kids enjoying their lunch.. yum!

maddie peeking over the table :)

and the loot each kid got to take home!!! it had an alice in wonderland book with necklace.. a "drink me" drink, and an "eat me" cookie :)

i didn't get pictures of the darling cupcakes and cake... or the signs that lead into the house that said "which way" and "yonder" and that sort of stuff... they were super cute! she thinks of it ALL!! and the kids played fun games and got to bounce in the bounce house... we had a ball!!

Camping in Zion

We met my parents in zion for a couple days of fun camping!! we had a blast spending time together and took a TON of pictures in the 2 short days we were there :) so here we go in no particular order....


maddie and mia in grandma and grandpa's tent... grandma ALWAYS has a bag of tricks with her and the girls always LOVE it!!!




maddie fell down and i don't even think she got a scratch... but daddy got his trusty first aid kit that he always has in his car and never uses and fixed maddie up :) she was having the time of her life playing the patient and was limping around :) then of course mia fell and the doctor kit came out again!!


grandpa and maddie... i remember as a kid i used to always ride on my dads shoulders :)

my dad is such a dork! :)

maddie and mia took turns riding in the backpack...

family picture :) love the 80's pose maddies rockin'!!



tuckered out from being carried on a hike ... we didn't have a blanket so we threw down a newspaper to keep her off the cold damp grass :)

we got ice cream from the lodge while mia was sleeping and the second she heard ice cream her head popped up and was ready for her cone :)




pedi party!!




tubby time.... i LOVE a clean baby..




cute sisters!


when we ask maddie how big she is getting she straightens up and then goes up on her toes and now mia copies her to show us how big she is too!!


surprise face!



this is us trying to take a family picture by ourselves...


mia loves her "gaga" grandma!
