Here is our family's happenings in the month of 10-08.
*My Birthday!! 29 years old and I plan on enjoying the last year of my 20's. I had a great day of being spoiled. I am finally up with the times and own an IPOD :) now I need to learn how to use it. I had a lot of friends drop by fun gifts which included lotion, stationary, frames, salt water taffy (my favorite treat), Halloween decorations, the cutest office set of filing folders with my initial!, videos and CD's, a homemade apron (very cute), a lunch trip to Bajio (chicken green chili salad-yummm). Thanks to all of you that thought of me on my day. Oh, and Cache's brother and his wife gave me the coolest vintage baby scale. I see it being in some baby pictures in the future. I also had chicken noodle soup and sloppy joe meals (2 separate meals) prepared for me. Thanks everyone!
* We planned a last minute trip to Disneyland. I love going to dland at Halloween time. I love the jack-o-lanterns that decorate the park. This year Cache's parents went with us which was fun to have them there. The kids loved riding the rides with them. Peanut was so much braver this year, she loved all the fast rides-splash mountain, tower of terror, matterhorn, space mountain, thunder mountain. Unfortunately she wasn't tall enough for California Screamin', she wasn't too bummed, but Finley cried and cried that he wasn't able to ride it, but he was able to ride the Mattherhorn which he LOVED. I was very blessed too that I wasn't that sick while I was there. I only threw up one of the nights :) (sorry that was probablly TMI). I wasn't able to ride the big rides, but it was okay, Finley and I got a lot of time riding winne the pooh. I will admit that I did sneak a ride on Indiana Jones, I love that one I couldn't NOT ride it while I was there.
Than and Erica this is for you. The infamous Turkey leg (bluck!)
* We got home for our trip just in time for HALLOWEEN! My kids got WAY too much candy and can you believe it all of the candy was good candy, not one tootsie roll or smartie, all of it was candy bars, and they even got a can of soda. They both loved trick-or-treating and stayed out with their dad for about 2 1/2 hours. Finley was cow and peanut was a palm tree.Halloween2008
*Although this wasn't technically in October because it happened on Nov. 1st I am going to include it because it was a Halloween party. Cache and I were able to act young again, we went to a party up a near-by canyon and hiked to a cave where we watched a scary movie. It was a lot of fun even though we didn't know a lot of the people-only 3 couples and there was about 50 people there. It was freezing cold and kinda spooky which made it all the better. We didn't get home until about 1:30 in the morning which is totally out of the norm for us since lately i usually collapse at about 9:30.
