Santa no more...

It happened! I am officially old. Once one of your kids asks about Santa, you're doomed. Monday night Alyssa found out (or at least admitted it) about Santa. To set the story up........

A couple weeks ago we were at Justin's parents house for dinner. We were all talking in the living room, My sister in law's were talking about when they stopped believing in Santa, DUNDUNDUNNNNNN( melodramatic sound)!!! Alyssa is sitting very quietly on the floor playing with Carson. No one knew she was in there. I was like, you guys shhhhh Alyssa is sitting right there! She really didn't look like she was paying attention, but I KNEW she heard. So nothing was said of it. And it sat.

So Monday night we were driving home and Justin is teasing the kids about something and says something about Santa. Alyssa lowers her voice and says, "he's not real". It caught Justin off guard so he turned and was like "What did you say" I think it may have intimidated her even though that was not the intention. She seemed a little more reluctant to answer and said it again quieter. Me and Justin looked at each other and I said I knew she heard! Justin says "where did you hear that?" She says, "everyone was talking about it at Grandma's." So we told her we would talk about it later. She seemed fine. So I talked with her about it and she was good. She did say to me, "so you lied." I said, "No, remember the time you asked about how Santa gets in and I told you he uses imagination?" And she goes, "OHHHHH" like she was putting it all together. So BOOOO to growing old!!!!!! and BOOOOOO to Grandma's house where she had to learn the HARD truth!!

It's sad but I need to be safe.....

I guess I am going to get stocked if I don't go private. I am getting freaked out by all these stories. I am going to go private next week. Send me your e-mail address and I will invite you. Michelle, if you get this, I didn't get a chance to send you my e-mail before you went private. I love reading every one's blogs and keeping up on your life's. It's sad that there are people out there that make it so it is even harder to stay in touch with our busy life's. I look forward to getting you all an invite and letting you continue to read my blog. This has been so fun and I plan on continuing posts for years to come. I hope to hear from all of you. If you don't have a blog and still read mine, you can still send me your e-mail address to my e-mail and we will getter done!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!!! We had a great Halloween! Alyssa was Hannah Montana, Matthew was Indiana Jones, Mckenzie was Sharpay from the golf scene on High School Musical, and Carson was a Lion. Now off to the day of events!
First stop, the elementary school Halloween parade. Here comes Matthew (He had a teacher ask him if he was a hobo!) He was my DI costume kids this year, we couldn't find an Indiana Jones costume at the store. But he turned out pretty good. I found a leather jacket for him, a Men's size Large! We just rolled the sleeves and he was good to go.

And here is Hannah Montana! We found the perfect boots at DI for her costume, they went perfect with her costume. Her wig was a pain. I had to brush it out the night before and it took me until 1am and then by the time she was in the parade it was tangled again!

Here are the babies! Carson the Lion, Abigail the Banana, and Gaven the Lion. Oh don't forget Hannah Montana again!

Next we were off to Mckenzie's Preschool parade. She was so excited to come out as Sharpay, she skipped out. Then when she was supposed to do her little "intro", she got all shy.

They sang us some cute songs.

Then they got to parade around the yard. Her crown fell off somewhere!

Cupcakes are so good! They are even better when you wear them on your face!

After school got out, we went to Justin's work to go Trick or treating. They had a lot of fun there. All the people dressed up at his work, except Justin and 3 other people (lame!) I dressed up as a rocker and went around his work. Then we came home and got ready to go around the neighborhood.

Matthew as Indi!

Mckenzie had to hold up something, since Matthew held up his whip.

Alyssa was so animated. She was sick of getting pictures taken, so she decided to throw herself in front of the camera.

The kids went out with Justin and Troy and his girls, and I stayed home and passed out candy to the 25 kids that came to my door. I asked Justin if anyone was even out and he said there were a ton of people, I guess my house is too scary for people to come up to my door!

Carson wasn't feeling too well, so he stayed home with me. He was asleep when the kids left so I couldn't get pictures with him with the kids.


I had to get a picture with me and my baby boy! So everyone had a safe a happy day, the kids got so much candy. And best of all We gained an hour of sleep!!!
