Trunk or Treating

Our ward had its annual trunk or treating event last Friday and we had a blast. Alexia invited her friend Ava and they had so much fun playing and tick or treating from car to car. She got a lot of candy (or CLEANED UP in her words) and I suggested that we don't go out on Halloween, as we have plenty of candy that we don't need to be eating. Alexia had a meltdown at the suggestion. She has had a lot of meltdowns lately, even telling me that she does not want to be Alexia anymore.

I remember a time when trunk or treating was enough and wish for those days back. At least Halloween is on a Friday this year! They have a school parade and we will take lots of pictures so that everyone can see our little skunk! Happy Halloween! Alexia says BOO!

Pumpkins and Pictures

Today we carved a pumpkin. Alexia did most of it by herself while mommy and daddy watched. She did a great job and it turned out so cute. I am amazed that last year she would not even help because it was "too gross" but this year she did nit want any help. Miss Independent. (I say she is growing up too fast)

She thought that it was slimy and "SO COOL" and "TOTALLY AWESOME". Her favorite part was taking out the pumpkin guts. She also liked using a sharp knife.

You can see the end result was BEAUTIFUL.

We also had pictures taken earlier today, which was an adventure. Alexia decided that she wanted her hair curled, so we spent an hour curling her hair while she jumped every ten seconds telling me not to burn her (which I have never done). Lets just say we will not be curling her hair again for a while.

We left for the pictures thinking that we would get there about ten minutes early, only to get there and find out that they were 45 minutes behind. Lets just say the out appointment was at noon and we were finally done at 1:55. In 6 year old land, that wait is "like forever" so she was not the happiest kid during the pictures. We did manage to make her smile long enough to get some cute pictures, so hopefully they will come back as cute as they looked on the computer. We finally got done and by the time we got home both Alexia and mommy needed a nap while daddy watched football.

Update from our Trip

Many have wondered how our trip to Utah went. I was was wonderful.

We went to the Circus and Alexia, Craig and Callie had a good time, but we all agree the elephants should come sooner so that kids we can't sit for 2 hours can leave.

We also went to the Zoo.

We had a good time. The rest of my pictures are on CD and I can't get to them right now so I will post more latter.
