A Busy Day

Keaton and Daddy

Shelby rockin' the pinata

Dax, Shelby and Keaton before Trick-or-Treating

Shelby's first house

Keaton loves this horse.

How cute is this? Shelby gave him a kiss and Keaton gave her a big wet one right back!

What a day! It has been a great Halloween. We started the evening by going to Tucker's grandpa's. He lives in a retirement village and they had a party with pinata and all. Shelby went up with the stick in hand and hit the pinata with her hand. It was pretty funny. Then our friends Jana, Tyler and their son Dax came over and we took the kids out Trick-or-Treating. It was SO cute. It was Shelby's first time and she loved it. Slightly awkward though...She was a lingerer. She would get right next to the door so the second they opened the door, she was there. Then she wouldn't leave. It was so cute and so fun to watch Shelby and Dax go together. Then we went over to Tucker's parents for the world famous homemade chili by Debby. It is always so good and she makes it every year. The kids loved there costumes this year and didn't want to take them off. It was a great Halloween.

Some Halloween Fun!

My huge, crazy family

I will cut you

Dwight and Angela were there

Wendy and Peter

Arrrrr matey

I love my family Halloween party! It is fabulous. Every year my whole family dresses up and we have a great party. It is so fun to see everyone in their costumes! Usually I dress up as the same thing every year but this year we mixed it up and are a pirate family. The kids costumes are so cute! I love it. Good food and good company, my favorite kind of parties!

Best Friends

Sitting at the table

Keaton falls down, Shelby checks out the situation.

Back to playing.

Last weekend the kids played together so good. I swear it's the first time that they have played together by themselves nicely for more then a few minutes. Shelby is finally getting over her mean streak. (Except for last night when she gave Keaton a beat down, but we will blame that on no nap.) She will usually try to take care of him when he gets hurt and he is old enough to at least do some parallel play. They have a new favorite thing. They love to play in Shelby's room with her animals. They get up to the table and sit and play. On Saturday they played together for an hour...An HOUR people!! That is parenting bliss!

Showin' Keaterbug some love!

This boy loves him some cake.

How much to ship this cutie?

My burrito baby

I havent posted any pics of my Keaton lately so here are a few random ones. He is 15 months and NOT walking! I swear that little bump-on-a-log feels no urgency to do that. He will take a few steps but I am just waiting for him to take off running. He is such a great little boy. He is a momma's boy and I'm not complaining!

School Days

Shelby before school this morning.

Shelby is in love with school! She loves everything about it. She adores the bus and cant wait for it to come. I cannot believe the difference it has been this year. Every day they do something special, but Thursday is her favorite because they go swimming. On Wednesday nights she gets so excited she can hardly sleep because she knows it is swim day tomorrow. My little girl is growing up so fast.

What A Thing To Wake Up To...

We got major snow last night. Seriously. I can't believe it is only mid-October and we have this big of a storm. Makes me all Christmasy, but its too early for that. It is still falling like crazy outside.

My Public Service Announcement...

Does anyone here have personal space issues?? I do. The last few days I have had two strangers all up in my business. The first one was last night. Tucker won a gift certificate to Texas Roadhouse and we used it last night. We got takeout so I went to pick it up and when I got there, the girl working got like 2 inches away from me and started talking. Was it extremely crowded you might ask? Nope, just me and her, 2 inches away from each other. She also called me her best friend three times too, so, not quite sure what was up with that. Then when I went to return something at the mall today a dude got right up in my face too. WTH? So here is my PSA: If you are talking to a complete stranger then chances are they don't want to be that close to you. That is all.

My sisters

I need to brag about my sisters for a moment. I look up to them in every way! They are the most crafty, loving, creative, best sisters ever! The other day I called Cheryce and asked how her day went. It turned out that she had just cleaned her entire basement, grinded wheat, made homemade bread with that wheat, made salsa all the while running around her four girls. I don't know how she keeps up with everything but she makes it look easy. As far as Alysia goes, she is AMAZING. She always has the cutest ideas for everything, so talented and thoughtful. Everything she does is adorable. I steal all my recipes from her. We made these bow holders last week and they turned out really cute. They both are great mothers and my best friends. I love you guys!

Fiesta...Part 2

The 2 chefs at work.

It has always been a tradition of Tucker's family to have a fiesta, but a few weekends ago, Alysia and I busted out the "First Annual Squire Family Fiesta!" It was a whole lot of fun. We decided to make these homemade Chimi's that are to die for. We had so much great food and a yummy tres leches for dessert. Alysia busted out a hand-made pinata. (I wish I had a picture of it, because she did a really good job.) Cheryce brought over a awesome CD that we rocked out to. It was so fun. Everyone was able to come except Morgan...and we missed her... I have to say that it was a major success and a new tradition.
