Snowflake Lane

A few weeks ago we went to Snowflake Lane.
They have drummer boys, music, snow fairies, and of course snow!
 We got there early to get right next to the drummer's platform. We went on a Monday night and it turned out there wasn't a ton of people and the drums were a lot louder than I remember. So it didn't really matter.
 Near the end of the show it starts to snow. Blakley thought it was the greatest thing ever! You can't see the snow in the picture but she would just look up at point at it.
 Grayson loved the girls handing out the suckers, just stared at the drummer boy and wanted daddy to hold him the whole time.
 It was fun to be back home and be able to do this with my family!

Museum Of Flight

A few weeks ago we went to the Museum of Flight.
We weren't sure if the kids would really enjoy it but the loved it and we'll keep going back!
 We spent a lot of our time in the kids area. Blakley sat in the airplane for a good 10 minutes.
Grayson sitting in the helicopter. He had a blast running around checking out everything.
Notice Blakley in this picture she spent most of her time looking up
at all the planes hanging  from the ceiling.

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We were blessed to have both our families over and had a great time. Lots of food and yummy dessert!
 Kind of a funny picture of Grayson but he was loving the turkey's
Auntie made from oreos, kisses, and rolo's.
Blakley also loved them! She sat there and eat her dessert and loved every minute of it.

Love My Kids!

I went upstairs, after getting Grayson some breakfast, to get Blakley out of bed. I came back down to see this. I guess he wanted more! You'll notice his bowl is just pushed off to the side at this point, he was just eating it off the table with his spoon.
 Saturdays are my days I get out and go get some stuff done. I came home and saw Grayson playing around but didn't see Blakley. Poor girl was very tired! Kevin said she went over to the living to and the next thing he knew she was fast asleep on the floor.

Blakley really didn't get the whole trunk or treating thing. She just wanted to run around with all the other kids. Being that we were in a parking lot I said it would be better if she just hung out with dad at the car. So she helped dad pass out candy and even found herself a sucker.
 After all our candy was gone and daddy could walk around with us we
let Blakley run around and Grayson just followed behind daddy.

Halloween Night
The kids loved going trick-or-treating!
 Grayson was so funny! The first few houses he would go right up to the jack-o-lanterns and blow them out. Than he started knocking on the door, ringing the doorbell and than he would turn around and walk away. He did this at almost all the houses.
 Blakley decided she wanted to take a break here on the front porch. She just sat down and picked out a piece of candy and tried to eat it. After a little freak out because she couldn't;t get it open auntie opened it for her and she was quit content.
We had a fun night with the kids and family!

Pumpkin Patch

Last week took the kids to the patch. Blakley loved running around  but wasn't to sure about the pumpkins at first. Grayson walked right up to the table of gourds, picked two up and was using them as drumsticks to play the others.
 Walking with daddy over to the big pumpkins.
 I could not get the kids to look at me, they had so much fun running around the patch!

First Hair Cut

So she got her hair cut so long ago(end of September) but I just got these pictures.
This isn't the best before picture but you can see how crazy the back was.
It was all different lengths and would flip out to the side.
She actually did very well while her aunt was cutting her hair. She just wanted to know what was going on back there and kept turning her head around to try and see.

Here is her new hair cut, all the same length and nor more flipping out.
She even got a cut little pony tail.

Splash Park

So we went to the splash park over a month ago and now that's it's colder and rainy we are wishing the warm weather was back so we could go again.
 At first the kids really didn't know what to do.
They stood there looking around and checking everything out.
Blakley kept tyring to fill her cup up and drink it(eww) but she never could figure out how to fill it up. She would go over and put the cup by the thing but never where the water was coming out.
When we were getting ready for bed we saw this.
I guess I forgot to put sun screen on her little chest. Poor girl!

Point Defiance Zoo

I've been so bad at blogging lately, not that I was good at it before. But almost a month ago we went to the zoo with the Evans family. It was such a fun day!
 The kids loved seeing all the animals. Grayson was trying to find the moles in the tunnels.
 "Hoook!" Grayson has a hard time with the "L" sound so that's what we hard all day
pointing at all the animals.
 All the cousin's, except one(must have run out of the picture) checking out the monkey.
 The kids loved the walrus. He would come up to the glass and just look at everyone.
The kids passed out the second they got in their seats.

Sand Sculpting

Last week we headed over to Federal Way to check out the sand sculpting championships. They had all finished their creations and were already judged except for one. We watched him sculpt a mermaid, it was pretty cool to see what they could do with sand.
 Grayson seemed more interested in the birds flying around than the sand at times, and didn't get why we couldn't play in it.
There were lots of good ones but I think this one was my favorite.

Lake Meridian Park

Earlier this week we met up with our cousins to play at the park.
 Blakley loved climbing up the stairs on the pirate ship and looking out the port holes.
Yay! we love playing with cousins!
And Grayson went down the slide by himself! He has always been scared to do the slide but he went right up to the slide and slid down all on his own!

Trip to Utah

A few weeks ago me and the kids went down to Utah for my cousins wedding. It was a long drive through the night but we made it. The reception was amazing! A Luau beyond all luaus, it was so neat! The next day we headed down to SLC for the wedding. The kids loved just running around looking at the Temple.
  Here they are running after Grandpa as he was walking to sit down.
 So some of my cousins are fairly young and Grayson loved playing with them!
The kids discovered some quail in the bushes and were following them around through the little pathways around the garden.

A few weeks ago we went swimming with the cousins. It reiterated how different my kids are.
 Blakley went running to the water, wasn't afraid at all. She just loved it!
Grayson on the other hand wouldn't go near the water, as you can see didn't even take his shoes off. He was the official "toy thrower in the water". He did have fun but with out the water.
I love that my kids have there own personalities and like different things. Its fun to see them be them.

I Thought They Were Over This

Yesterday Grayson and Blakley were playing so well together while I was cleaning the house. After awhile I heard them both laughing and this is what I saw. They had pulled out all the wipes and Grayson was waving them in front of Blakley's face. You can't hear Blakley but she was laughing too.
I love that they can play together now, even if it is at the lost of a bunch of wipes.
(video was taken on my phone so it's not that great)

Helping Out

I was doing the wash today and asked Grayson to come help me so Daddy could finish cleaning the bathroom. I took the load out of the dryer to put it away and I came back to him like this.
Just Checking things out mom.

On Saturday Blakley turned 11 months. What better gift to give us and herself then to start walking!

Just Dance

So my kids love to dance. This is from a few months ago, Auntie was trying to teach Grayson the spider man dance.

Blakley just makes me laugh when she dances. I swear she has a new move every time.

And please excuse my messy house and kids dressed funny or not even dressed at all.

Trip Home

We were able to go home to visit the trip didn't exactly turn out how we wanted(everyone but me got sick), but it's still nice to get home and see family. Here is a short overview of our trip.

We all got dressed up for Uncle Randy's Wedding.
We partied the night away and danced with cousins.
We went to Uncle Ryan's baseball game.
We played in Duke's crate( he loved getting in there, not sure why).
We wrestled with grandpa.
And caused some trouble(we found him during his nap with a cassette tape completely unrolled).
