When Mckenzie gets the camera!

If you need a laugh for the day, here it is. Alyssa needed me to upload her memory card to the computer. We didn't look through the pictures until we loaded them. I don't know why it struck me so funny, but it sure made me laugh! Mckenzie got a hold of Alyssa's camera and went around the house taking random pictures. So let me walk you through them. The top she of course needs to start out by introducing the photographer.
Here we have Carson playing in his room.
The big blue ball in Carson's room.
Part of Carson. Maybe she was trying to pose him?
The oh so close up
Don't forget the tongue.
I'm so glad my house was clean
Our vent that keeps us warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
A dirty sock
Don't leave Walmart out
Yes I'm rich a $50...oh wait it's monopoly money
Weird feet shot
K this one is actually good. I am raising one dang good photographer. I hope you smiled!

Last couple days of the Vacation

The last day before we went home, we went to the beach for one last beach day. I dug a deep hole for the kids to play in. By the time we were getting ready to go the tide was up to the hole. I was standing in it with my back to the ocean helping one of the babies come down the stairs I had built and a huge wave came and hit us and filled the hold part way and knocked us over. It was kind of funny.
Here is the inside view. It was a pretty deep hole for digging by hand. The kids had fun playing in it.
Alyssa was having a lot of fun playing in all the waves. There were a few that knocked her under.

I thought this picture was funny of Matthew playing on the beach.

Cute Mckenzie!
The hole before we were done digging it out.
After the beach Justin and I drove out to Danya Point with the kids. This is looking out in the boat harbor. I think Justin is saying a prayer :)
The kids didn't think it was that cool for drive time it took :)
On the way home, we broke up the drive again and stayed in St. George for the night. We decided to go swimming for a little while before we drove the rest of the way home.
Matthew and Mckenzie were jumping in and out over and over :)
Carson loved jumping in too.
Justin was a party pooper and didn't swim with us...oh well "every party has a poop and that's why we invited you, party pooper!" He just took the pictures. :) That was our Vacation! We had a good time and loved being there with friends. Thanks again for the invite!!

Dsineyland & California Adventure Day 3,4 &5 of Vacation

So here are the pictures from our Vacation to Disneyland that I said I would post. We did 3 days. The first day was Disneyland, the second was California Adventure and then we just hopped from park to park on the last day.
Me, Matthew and Alyssa on Screamin'
Mckenzie enjoying her $5 Cotton Candy that she bought with her own money :)

Matthew and Mckenzie got called up fr Jedi training. Mckenzie got scared and ran off when all the storm troopers ran out but Matthew got to fight Darth Maul.

Here is Matthew fighting Darth Maul

Riding on Flik's Flyer's
Getting ready to take off on Screamin'
Wishing by the Well
Carson crawling through the Watermelon in Goofy's garden
This is where all of my kids belong...in the dog pound :)
Alyssa wanted to get a picture in the "A"
Matthew loves Brother Bear
I promise he loved the ride
Mckenzie ready to use the phone
This is on the Farris Wheel in California Adventure. The cages slid and rock as it is going around. I hated it. Mckenzie was laughing until we slid all the way forward and then she cried.
Carson was not too happy to sit by Chip and Dale!
Out on Donald's boat
We went though Micky's house and he was really there. I was surprised because usually he is not there without a big line. But no line :)
And of course the picture in front of the Micky :)

Time flies when you're having fun! I haven't even been able to finish posting our Vacation pictures and Halloween has already come and gone! I guess I better post these pictures first before I finish with the rest :)
First on the list of Halloween festivities was Mckenzie's Preschool parade, she actually was dressed up almost everyday of the week! Tuesday she had her dance party, Wednesday was preschool, Thursday was a break, Friday a trunk or treat, and Sat Halloween! Phew!
It was too cold on the day of her Preschool parade, they usually do it outside where there is a lot of room. So this year they had to be inside, but it worked out. They are always so cute. The teacher has each child come out individually to introduce their "character". Mckenzie said, "I can fly, I can fly, I can fly!"

Here she is walking around to the "monster mash" for the parade
Mckenzie and her pal Derek
Mckenzie and her Teacher the Wicked Witch! :)

Next on the list was the light speed parade at the school. I am not kidding, these kids run by so fast that you hardly have a min to take a picture let alone see when they are coming. Half the time you don't know it is them until the are in front of you or past you!
I saw Matthew coming because he was the first one out.
This is my nephew Colton, his mom asked me to get some pictures of him....ummm yeah that's all I could get. Notice that he is turning around for me :)
Alyssa wouldn't even look at me...What's new, she always pretends like she can't see me when I have the camera at the school.

Next we have Halloween night.

Alyssa was an Ice Fairy, can you see the snow and ice on her face? I was proud of the make up job and when she got home it was all off. I asked her when it came off and she said she picked it off about 2 houses down when they first left!
Matthew was my commando! Carson was supposed to wear the head band but he was so ornery, he would let me do hardly anything, so Matthew decided he would wear it instead of the foam helmet :)
Mckenzie was Tinkerbell as we saw before. She got a lot of use out of her costume this year, which I love!
Carson was the other commando. He was the biggest pain! (he really didn't feel very well, poor thing) I wanted to paint his whole face like Matthew, but I was lucky to get anything on his cheeks.
Here are all 4 trick-o-treaters!
Carson wouldn't get in this picture. I was bummed because I think it is a cute one! That was our Halloween, The kids got a ton of Candy! I didn't weigh it but I bet there was 20 pounds :)
