Zoo Lights

Let me tell you a little secret....
Wendy's is giving out coupons for $3 admission (good for 6 people) to go to Zoo Lights. I don't know about you, but I had never been before. I was pleasantly surprised! It was really fun! We didn't see too many animals, but the plethora of lights made up for that. Plus Coog-a-man was a CHAMP and rocked it in his stroller without hardly making a peep. He was wide eyed and enjoying it, until he became too exhausted and finally crashed. (for 5 minutes, HA)

 We had to take a picture by the Cougar!


 All bundled looking so warm and cozy!!
 He's asleep in this picture.....
 But now he's awake....5 minutes later!
A cat naper even at night!

So the catch is you can only go on Thursday nights in December, so hurry fast!! There is only on more left, because the next one after this week is Christmas!!!!!
9 days!
 I'm so gitty and excited!!!!!!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our little mummy to yours (or whatever they may be)!!!

 "A mummy onsie Mom?? Really?"
and the hat lasted about 1 minute...
Yes I know son, next year your costume will be so much cooler! I don't know what you'll be but it'll be awesome, and you can go treat or treating, and have so much fun! ;)

Pictures Worth a Thousand Words

Unfortunately the baby carrier lasted....8 minutes?? maybe.


 I LOVE his big bottom lip!

We all love fall around here. These pictures don't do it justice, but I had to attempt at capturing its beauty. These short adventures amongst the business of life make quite the difference. But even more so.... these two in my life make ALL the difference. Heavenly Father has blessed me tremendously and I am forever grateful.

Candyland: Annual Smith Family Halloween Party

If I could go back and ask my 6 year old self if I had one wish what it would be...I am certain the answer would be to live in CANDYLAND! This was the theme of our Annual Smith Halloween Party!! Its always a blast and I look forward to it every October. We may not be the best costume-r's, but its so fun to see everyone dress up and enjoy Halloween together! I have never been one for Halloween, at least the scary side of it, but boy howdy the candy gets me! My sisters Tawnette and Chandalyn were in charge this year and they did great!!!

 Plumpy, The Happy Tree, and Baby Plumpy (who was not very happy about that wonderful costume my mom made!)
 Mr. and Mrs. Mint, and (one of three) peppermint kids!

 I'm sad I didn't get a picture of my sister and her family who were the gumdrop people!
Here she is snapping away! We really should combine our pic Chan!
Grandpa Nut got away without dressing up this year and he was sure pleased about that!
 Grandma Nut
 King Candy and Queen Frostine
Lord Licorice
 Princess Lolly

 He was a trooper for staying up past his bedtime...and getting dressed up!

 You cant play Candyland with out candy and treats!!

 After the kiddles went through it was time for the adults to play!

trying to get a jumping picture was difficult but we all just laughed!
Meanwhile as the girls were playing the boys were doing this...
 Seeing how far they could throw the darts and still make it in the wall...and maybe hit a balloon!
 and throwing the balls at everyone....including the camera lady!

It was a pretty big mess! But it was a ton of fun!
Thank you Tawnette and Chan for all of your hard work. It turned out great and it was so much fun as always!
