Trick or Treat

For Halloween this year we found this really cute Strawberry costume for Maddie. So I thought Abbey could go as Strawberry Shortcake. Easy right? Not so much! The Strawberry Shortcake I grew up with was super easy to make as a costume, but his new one has such a weird hat. We looked and looked and finally found a new Strawberry Shortcake costume online for only $27.00. I was going to order it when my Mom said that I could make it for so much cheaper. Well I totally fought her on it and then decided she was probably right. So I ordered the pattern, $6.75, then spent a whole day at Jo'anns and Hancock fabric getting the perfect fabric, $27.65, plus the Rolo candy that Abbey opened and started eating while I was paying! Man, it cost more to make it and I wasn't even making the pants!!!!! So now I was out $34.40 and I still had to make the dang on thing. I was so mad! Well I did it, I made her shirt and hat ALL BY MYSELF! I am so happy and I thanked my Mom for forcing me to make this costume. We had a great Halloween, it was a beautiful day. We went to trunk or treat at the Church and then came home and went trick or treating with new friends, Kevin, Nicole and Noah Smith. We had fun and the kids were all pooped out at the end of the night.

He's at it again

In California Mike was a big fan of KCAL (96.7) the radio station. He loved the music but what he really loved was that he could call up every 30 days and and win something. The last thing he won was the 6 Disneyland tickets we used to go to there with the family this past Summer. Well he's at it again, he has found a new radio station here in Nebraska. The station is KTGL (the eagle 92.9). He called up and won tickects to a local pumpkin farm. But, Vala's Farm is no ordinary pumpkin patch. Oh no, this place was HUGE!!! It is 152 acres of scary excitment. It had Haunted houses, a Storyland, Pumpkin launching (my favorite), Petting zoo's, a graveyard, play areas and so, so much more. They also had a Hayride to the pumpkin patch were you could pick your pumpkin right off the vine. Thanks KTGL you're our new favorite radio station!!!

Happy Birthday Abbey

My Baby is 3!!! We celebrated Abbey's Birthday and had a blast. Her birthday was on Sunday but we started celebrating on Saturday. Grandma and Grandpa took us to the Lincoln Zoo. It's a pretty tiny zoo but the girls loved it. There's a train that goes around the outside of the zoo and we got to go around twice. Inside they had a petting zoo and pony rides. The girls loved the "ammimals". They saw monkeys, bats, alpaca, camels, a leopard, turtles, and lots more. Maddie squealed the whole day and Abbey was dragging us around 'cause she wanted to see more, more, more.
Then on Sunday Abbey woke up to presents presents and more! It was like Christmas. Maddie got some goodies too from Hunny and Grandma. Abbey got an Aurora Dress, shoes, crown, doll, movie, and purse set. She also got clothes, stick on earrings, rings, a baby stroller and a vespa tricycle!!! Then after Conference we had Cupcakes and sang "Happy Birthday"! I was pretty sad because we couldn't have Linda Baer Cake, but I think I did a pretty good job with the cupcakes :)
