Ho Ho Ho Merry Halloween

Christmas came early this year...on Halloween. We did the annual Pumpkin Walk in Encinitas. I have to say it totally wears me out every year & is a bit stressful getting it all together, but it is always worth it:) We ended the night with the band PB&J... the kids just loved it. Here are a few shots of Santa, Rudolph & his helpers and our friends along the way.

Halloween at Shuckelberries Preschool

Halloween started off with the boys preschool party. We all dressed up, did a parade, had treats, and played games:) Miller wasn't into this reindeer ears, so we did our best to dress him as Rudolph. Mason, on the other hand, makes a great Santa:) Tonight we will be walking around downtown Encinitas with our "sled", handing out candycanes....

Thanks Ms. Kat for a great Halloween party!

Nick & Amy's Wedding in Auburn

Not only was it our 5 year anniversary on October 25th, but it was also one of my best friends wedding day in Auburn. Mike and I left the kids at home and headed North to celebrate! I was lucky enough to be one of Amy's bridesmaids. We stayed at a lake front home for the weekend in preparation for the big day. The weather was perfect, Amy was the most beautiful bride, and we cleaned up pretty well too! I was able to get a little creative with my camera. Here are a few of my favorite shots. CONGRATS Nick & Amy...we can't wait to celebrate our anniversary's together in the years to come.

Bate's Nut Farm

A few weekends ago, we all went out to Bate's in Valley Center for a morning of pumpkins...and PEOPLE! my goodness that place is a zoo! The kids loved climbing around on the pumpkins, riding ponies, and enjoying FALL! Here are a few shots...

Keep Tahoe Blue!

So, I am finally getting around to posting about our trip to Tahoe! We were brave, threw the kids in the car and headed North....Over 500 miles each way with 2 little ones was quite a feat. On the way there, we stopped off in Sacramento to break up the trip. The kids did great on the way there....the way home was a different story! But we survived. Mason even had his 1st ever Happy Meal!! I know, shocking to most, but wasn't good... While in Tahoe we stayed in Tahoe Vista in a great resort called the Red Wolf. Perfect little family spot with a wading area for the kids, pool, kayaks, bbq's, and a night of smores! We moved into Squaw Valley the last few days to celebrate Jeff & Rebecca's wedding at High Camp and Plumpjacks. I have to say it wasn't the most relaxing vacation, as anyone that has traveled with kids can atest too, but it was so beautiful and great to be back to where Mike and I met...8 years ago.
