Halloween 2010

Here we are in our Halloween glory...Andrew's the scary clown, (he really didn't like that. It made him feel bad that little kids were scared of him.) Kenna is the elf princess lady from Lord of the Rings, Reaghan is Luna Lovegood (her crazy pink glasses are on top of her head) Reese is a water fairy, I'm an angel, and Jon is boycotting any kind of dressing up.

Camping and caving at Peppersauce

Us eating breakfast and playing with fire :)
On our way into the caves...yes I know we look so ghetto, but you can pretty much count on whatever you wear into those caves being covered in mud when you're done.


Boating

The girls and I on a slow ride...
I'm trying to do a glamorous pose while grilling hot dogs on the beach

This is one of the kids' favorite parts of the day-when we park the boat on the beach and they can ride the tube like a raft.

Sick Day

I was sick yesterday. I am on antibiotic, and got a flu bug. Fever, chills, and all the fun stomach stuff. Then, because I didn't have food in my stomach, I had a bad side effect with the antibiotic. It felt like I was getting a big bear hug-it hurt really bad to breathe. I could only take short breaths. With Jon out of town, my kids had to fend for themselves while I stayed in bed, literally, all day. I woke up several times to find the kids had left me things, like an ice water, crystal light (kennadie) and Reaghan even made me a get well card that she signed for all the kids, misspelling Andrew's name. :) At one point I took a bath, but could only make it back to my bed in a towel before needing to lay back down. Reese came in a couple minutes later with a pair of green sweats, and even brought me a matching green shirt. These kids really took good care of me-not once did anyone come in to ask for something or tattle. I don't even know what they ate all day. Probably cheese puffs and fruit roll ups.

New family pics

The Halliday extended family...


Grandma needed a more current pic of Reese, so she got her very own photo shoot.


US!
I love my little brace-faces. I could stare at these cute faces all day. I know, I have brown hair. Kind of a phase I go though every few years. It only lasts about 6 months or so-in fact I'm already phasing back to the blonde me. (It's been 5 months:)

Sister look-a-likes


Renae and I have always looked a bit alike, so we

took this picture for the record.

Easter egg hunt at Grandma and Grandpa DeWitt's

The boys get in on the dressing up.
Grandprincesses in Grandma's dressups!





Hot juice, school (Reese wishes) and Lego Rockband

When the kids get a sore throat I make what we call "hot juice", hot water, honey and lemon juice. It tastes yummy and takes away the hurty throat!
Reaghan always looks so cute for school! And Reese so wishes she could come along!!! One more year... (sniff sniff)


Introducing Lego Rockband to Grandma and Grandpa was so funny. I think we had my dad sing Pink's "So What, I'm still a Rockstar" or something like that. Hee hee.


Winter Swimming

The clubhouse has a hot tub and a heated pool, so we spent time swimming this winter!



Christmas morning-the goods






















Runway







This is so classic. This is the girls running in to open presents!

DeWitt Christmas party 2009




Grandma and Grandpa brought Christmas presents back from Egypt!


Ranch explosion, funny faces

I got aggressive with the ranch and it exploded on me, and Jon's police friend across the room.

Knee socks, lost tooth, and rainbows

Look at how the socks and bathing suit push all the fat to her thighs...Beautiful.
First lost tooth! Reaghan's teeth are fully grown in before she finally gets the old one out.

A whole rainbow!


Fun night at the school




The kids had a night where they got to show off what they were working on. Andrew did his president report on Andrew Jackson. I thought we did a good job on the hair.
Reaghan's grade had a concert...
Andrew and I played a special arrangement of Cannon in D, where we took turns playing the fun melody...
