Wacthing all the maddness on the news used to scares me but ever since the year I was pregnant with Ivy we have made it a tradtion for us girls to go shopping. And its very fun! Ive never gone for a TV or anything crazy thank goodness! Mostly just cheap movies and christmas PJ's. This year I was determined to find a to kitchen for Ivy! While going through the ads I found one I really liked but there was no way in he-- I was going to Toys R Us! So I found another one in the Target ad. It was cheaper but I really wanted a nice wood one since it will be sitting out in my livning room most of the time....but I decided on the talking princess kitchen. Ivy spotted it in the ad on Thanksgiving and kept telling everyone she wanted it, so I know she will LOVE it! our first stop was Old Navy. Its tradition to get new PJ's on Christmas Eve so I bought some for Bren, Aaron and myself (= I also found some cute skinny jeans for $15 that will took cute with boots!!! I hope they fit!....there was no way I was waiting in the dressing room line, NOPE! The line was insainely long! Thank goodness everyone that worked there were SO nice!

second, Brit went home to feed the twins and I headed to Wal-Mart. I thought the kicthen was there so I was sad when I couldnt find it )= until I remembered that it was a Target...opps! So I headed to the cheapo movies. They had a good selection! Lots were only $1.98!!!!

thrid was Target, we got there right before it opened. We were surprised at how long the line was, it seemed to go accross the whole fornt of the store, when we got to the back we realised that it was MUCH longer than that! It went accross the whole fornt and then along side of the store! GEEPERS! Once it opened the line moved along quickly. The people were feirce! They pushed and shoved anyone or anything in the way! I saw an older lady get bumped with a cart and I was like aww sad but then she gave a butt head remark so I didnt feel as bad for her. I was happy I found the kitchen and a couple of princess baby dolls for Ivy. These people are nuts! And I guess Im a little nuts for going out but at least Im not CRAZY!

happy halloween!

I took Ivy to the Springs Preserve a couple days before Halloween, shes enjoyed it very much! They had lots of fun games and trick-or-treating but Ivy's favorite was when a local kids dance studio put on a really cool show. It was a freak circus show. The kids were really good singers/dancers. Ivy tried to sneak onto the stage a couple times hahaha (=
She was very afraid of some of the costumes but she saw someone dresses as Elmo and she freaked (with excitement!!!) she begged me to take her to him and I couldn't see where he had gone so I started heading toward the trick-or-tricking spots to hopefully get her to forget about Elmo. But she wouldn't let it go, the whole time we were walking she was calling for Elmo. I spotted a little boy with an Elmo costume on but she was not satisfied. Finally I was able to distract her at at the end of the night she did get to see Elmo (not the same one) again....oh joy!

My friend Nick and I work together so we thought it would be cool to dress up needed to be low budget but not SUPER lame. I dicided to be a widow, a widow that killed her husband. These pictures are from the night before Halloween, everyone at work dressed for the two nights before Halloween and obiously Halloween night.

Halloween night was very chill for Ivy and I this year. I had planned on hitting up as many houses as we could get LOTS of CANDY!!! We went near Rhodes Ranch where my sisters best friend lives. About 3 mins before we got there Ivy fell asleep! So I stopped at KFC and tried to get her to wake up and be happy! Its worked!....after a while. So we got there and Ivy was pretty nervous about going up to random peoples houses, which is good I guess. But she'd wake to the door, knock, then turn around and say, "no ones home," and run away (= she got scared at alot of the decorations too. She was VERY good at her "trick-or-treats!" and her, "thank yous!"
So we werent moving at the pace I had planned on so I just decided to chill out and take it easy, she was having fun so the candy was not as important. We went down aout 1 1/2 streets before Ivy told me she had to go potty, luckily we were on the same street were Karen (brits best friend) lived. So we stopped by and asked to use the restroom. They invited us to stay and sit for a while......we ended up staying over an hour, Ivy was having so much fun and I was enjoying sitting back and enjoying the company. I work 7 nights a week so I get TIRED! To say the least (= I had to get going because I had work later that night so David (Karen's husband) said they wanted to be Ivy's last house to go trick-or-tricking at. So they had Ivy and I go outside and knock again, Karens gave Ivy probably ten handfuls of candy! WOW we didnt need to go to anymore houses anyway! After we left there I took Ivy to Brittany's for bed and I went to work. What a great Halloween it was (=

Brittany's baby shower

I had lots of fun planning Brittany's baby shower, the color theme was pink, blue and brown. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the decorations and everything but oh well. Since I got off of work at 4:30am I decided to not go to sleep because the shower started at 10:00am......BAD IDEA! I was soooo tired! But it was very fun and my sister and mom helped a lot with the decorations and games. And my aunt was amazing! She cooked all the waffles, THANK YOU!!!!

below is a picture of Ivy standing in front of the gift me Bren and my mom got for the babies.
It got down to the last second and people stated arriving to this didnt turned out as I had planned but you get the idea.

We spent the day in the pool, it was VERY refreshing!!!! My mom made shrimp cocktails and I brought some snacks to share. Wonderful day!!! Ivy slept most of the day so the picture I did get wasnt the best.
