My FAVE holiday!! I love that the kids can dress up and pretend to be there HERO!!! My Holden was Captain America and Hadlie Cinderella!! We woke up and Sent HOlden to school. We went to the gym and then hurried home so I could do Holdens class party. It turned out so FUN!!!! Then after we came home and took naps. Then ate a yummy chili dinner. Which is a tradition in my family brings me back to when I was a kid!! Then Casey took them trick or treating!!! Holden didnt want to go very long and Tyson and Mikelle surprised us and they played outside for about a hour!!! I dont remember Halloween ever being so warm! It was so FUN!!!! After they left Holden went back out trick or treating with some neighbors!! We had so much fun!!! I think Hadlie ate a WHOLE bag of candy!!! She paid for it later!! Poor girl!!! We had a great day!!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

My neighbor had a Halloween mix up dinner. She had a menu full of mixed up food items. Like BAT WINGS and Pumpkin Blood. The kids had to circle 3 things they got at a time. Holden thought it was so funny!!! He wouldnt dress up cause I told him he couldnt be captain America cause I didnt want it to get dirty. But Hadlie was a cute little mouse!!! You didnt get a fork or spoon till you circled it on the menu GRAVE DIGGERS DELIGHT AND WITCHES BROOM STICK so there could be pictures of us slurping up are food!!!!

Every year HOldens school puts on a carnival as a fundraiser. It is so packed but it is so fun!!! My kids both had a ball and Casey was able to get off work a little early and come with us! Which is ALWAYS a plus!!!! Holden did a thriller dance first with all the Kindergarteners, And then we went to all the classrooms. Holden said his fave was Musical chairs and the hair spray. Ithink Hadlie loved to get her fingers painted!!! We had a great night!!!!

Hadlie has been in Dance for a couple of months and LOVES it when we arent there. She will do the whole dance at home. The second we get there she is very shy and doesnt want to do it!! She is all personality. They had a fun Halloween party with her cute class. Her Cody was over before so there is a picture of them on here!! She kept giving him kisses.

I thought this sounded so fun to do my first Tri. What made this one so fun was it was all ladies. And non competitive. I loved having woman run past me saying good job. Keep it up!!! I got to do this with a few of my friends from Crossfit and lucky to have a neighbor friend there too!!! I was so scared. The night before I had to get my packet, when I got back a friend of mine put up a banner that said good luck Whit!!! A bunch of my friends and neighbors signed it with flowers!!! Seriously my Crossfit friends will tell ya It pushed me so much harder!!! I really didnt train for it. But my only goal was to FINISH!!!!! We started at 8 am we all lined up for the swim!!! The whole time while I was swimming I HEARD a friend screaming for me!!! ( I have the BEST friends ever!!) She captured so many great pictures!!! My swim I did 7:44 . I ran out to get my bike and change my shirt!!! and I was off!!! The bike was so fun and surprisingly not so tough!!!! Unfortunately it broke on mile four and I had to stop!!! After sitting there for another twenty minutes I finally got to go out on my run!!! I did my 5K in 34 minutes which I was stoked about!!! Never been so fast!!! At the finish line there was a hill and I decided I would walk up it and then sprint in to finish as I looked up at the top I saw my dad and his sweet wife so I pushed it a little harder and ran up!!! They cheered me on!! I was stopped again by more friends with a darling ribbon which HAdlie and Holden both signed!!! I have to say one of my fave days ever!!! I love the HUGE support system I have!!!! I love you all and could never thank you enough!!!!!

So this happened back in June but I didnt have my camera with me so I had to steal these pictures!! We decided to do a fun family/ friend trip. I had never been to Lava before but I always heard how much fun it was. We got there and checked in to are fun cabin. AWWWW Cabin camping is so much more fun than tent camping with kids. We went to check out the town. Lava is pretty small and it didnt take us long. We went in the hot pods then the pool the next day. WE learned alot about are friends playing times up!!! HA HA We had so much fun!! Family/ friend trip needs to happen once a year.

Holden is quite the soccer player but we decided to try out Tball. He did pretty good loved going with all of his buddies. It makes me sad thinking about how old he is getting. After the season we had a little party at Mcdonalds for his team. Casey and Mike Wankier were there coaches. Holden loves that his daddy will be his coach!!!
