For Christmas my sister Karee and her husband Matt brought SingStar Pop for the PS2. It was a lot of fun and brutal at times. I would say enjoy, but this is one of those brutal times. Good effort everyone!

Rob gets to take some students from his junior high up skiing once a year to Snow Basin and this year he was able to get me a cheap pass with rentals. So we hit the slopes! We haven't been skiing for years and you forget how much fun it is. (To bad it is so expensive) Since it was a school day Aunt Kellee and Uncle Jon came over and watch Mykenna and Cael. It was a beautiful day of skiing and we had a ball until Mike (a friend and teacher that went with Rob and the kids) took us on a run that was straight moguls. We made it down the hill and actually laughed all the way down, except when Rob ran into me and kept going and I turned around and saw Mike taking a tumble as well! Good times!

This year we are putting up two trees. One upstairs and one down. We are having Christmas with Kim's extended family at our home. Our tree is prelite and Linda's isn't so she so nicely put the lights on it. Mykenna helped. They had fun doing it together.

For UEA weekend we took the kids to the Children's Museum, out to lunch and then bowling. We had a great time! The museum is always a hit. On this visit they had a whole room dedicated to the Robots movie. It was really neat. The kids built robots, played with remote control robots and controlled a robotic arm to pick up blocks. The girls did the weather for the museum's news channel. Bowling was great as well. I can't remember the last time we went bowling. Thank goodness for the bumper lane...not that I needed it! :) I had my mother's camera so I was able to take some short video of the kids.

Today Parker and Mykenna were invited to a neighborhood halloween party. Parker is going to be a pirate this year and Mykenna is a witch. Aren't they cute! I love the black long hair on Parker and the big mole on Mykenna's nose. She kept wanting to look at it in the mirror. They were really excited to go, but when we got there Mykenna wouldn't let me leave her side and Parker just wanted to play in the backyard. I did get a quick picture of them both doing one of the activites. Mykenna is playing witch bingo and Parker is painting a pumpkin. Cambrie helped out at the party. She ran the cake walk station. She did a great job! She was excited because at the end of the party she was giving a bag of prizes and a treat!

On Saturday we went to J & J Nursery with the Murphy's and caught their hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. It was great! We were a little worried we would get rained on, but the clouds opened up for us and it was perfect weather. The kids picked out their own pumpkins and the best part was ... they were FREE! The adults had to pay for theirs but kids get free pumpkins.
We had to go straight to the pumpkin patch from Cambrie's soccer game so that is why she is in her soccer apparel. She did great. She scored 2 goals and is improving with each game!
I think Parker had more fun finding a stick in the patch and throwing the straw off the wagon! Cute little dude, huh?
So what do you think of Mykenna's pumpkin? We actually ended up with an orange one at the end. :)

For Family Night we decided to wash the cars. It ended up being more of a water fight than washing the cars, but it was
At the end Rob and I conspired to get the kids together for a picture and then dump the bucket of water over them. My timing on the camera is never the same so I took it a little early, but you see what is coming right. :) Oh our poor kids!
Mykenna didn't think it was as funny as we did. It got her 20th outfit for the day all wet. (I am not kidding about how many outfits she goes through a day!)
She soon forgave us when she went and changed into a different outfit.
