Halloween Party

Saturday night was our ward Halloween party, so Derek took the kids for a little while so I could get ready for our adult Halloween party later that night.

Oh yes we were! Danny and Sandy, that is. And no, that is not a wig- Candice put my hair in sponge rollers that morning.

What will we come up with next year?

Back to Cali

Derek had a convention in Carlsbad a few weeks ago, so I sweet talked Kelli into driving with me and the kids to meet him there the last couple of days.
It was pretty windy and cold when we arrived, but the kids wanted to play at the little water park at the hotel so badly! They quickly changed their minds once they felt the water.

They decided the jacuzzi was the place for them.

After warming up, they decided to give it another try and loved it!

Shopping at Carlsbad Premium outlets was NOT for Janie, I guess.

Clara and Clay pretending to ride the little cars they had outside.

There was a festival going on and they had some cool sand sculptures, good food, music, and lots of booths.

Hopefully our next trip to Cali will be longer!

The Perfect Bag

I have been looking for SOOOO LONG to find myself the perfect purse. And when I say long I mean for the last year at least! I even went so far as to have Derek shop every day for 4 days in New York last week(he was already going with a friend for fun, not just to find me a bag) and I gave him strict instruction as to what I wanted. This was the criteria:
- White in color (surprised?)
- at least one outside pocket for keys and cell phone
- at least 2 inside pockets for little stuff
- zips at the top
- 2 straps
While Derek was still searching, I happened across this one on ebay- my favorite! It had everything I wanted and it was a steal- $22! It just came in the mail and it was better than I imagined. It's perfect.

Our new addition

No, you're not seeing double- or I guess you are - we now have 2 dogs. We thought Shadow could use a friend and hopefully they start to like each other because so far they either fight or stay as far away from each other as possible. I laughed when the previous owners told us his name- Cosby. Get it?
