Ashley's Wedding

My cousin Ashley got married this month! It was a great wedding that was held at an old farmhouse in Queen Creek. Mimi flew in from California to babysit, so we were able to have a fun, kid free night!

It was really fun to have Tatum as a bridesmaid with us!

The reception site.

The cute sweetheart table.

Cayden and Kenzie were adorable. The aisle was really long and they had to go through the reception site first so it was taking awhile. As soon as Cayden passed through the brick pillars, he yelled "We're coming!". It was so cute!

I love the back of her dress!

My dad made them a bench to use as their guest book.

My adorable Grandparents dancing during the anniversary dance.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Schlueter!

I love the homemade chandelier that Ashley made above the dessert table.

Annual Santa Visit

My dad is headed out of the country on business, so we decided to do our annual trip to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa and play in their Santa village. It was actually super nice to go this early because there was hardly anyone else there which meant zero line to wait in to see Santa! Rylie loves to play all of the games that they have there and we think the whole thing is so well done. The best part about the whole thing? Everything, even the picture with Santa, is FREE! :)

Duck hunting with Papa.

Nascar racing! This one is for Uncle Jeff. :)

Shooting with Daddy (of course it's a pink gun!).

This is how Grayson spent the first half of the visit.

Santa visit win! Both kids were fine and didn't cry at all!

Remote control truck time!

Just a glimpse into the future...

Halloween 2013

This year for Halloween we headed for my Aunt Laurie's house to go trick-or-treating with Cayden and Kenzie. This has become a bit of a tradition (but we missed Tatum this year!) and they have a great neighborhood to go trick-or-treating in. Rylie and Cayden had a blast and were pros at the whole asking for candy thing by about the 2nd house we went to! :) Grayson actually didn't seem to mind his costume as long as I didn't keep the feet on him (for some reason, the feet seemed to annoy him!). I thought we had a very cute trio of Ariel, Sebastian, and Flounder. :)

This is Rylie's face whenever you ask her to smile right now...lovely, I know. :)

Our cute little Ariel!

Our cute little Sebastian! :)

Trying to get a picture of the 4 of them was basically impossible. :)

Ariel and Buzz Lightyear with their loot!

My favorite part of them trick-or-treating was the fact that they had to hold hands in between every single house...I love these 2!

Pumpkin Carving

We had my parents over one night for dinner and pumpkin carving! After we ate, I put Grayson in the same PJs that Rylie wore for her first pumpkin carving. We took a few pictures of him with the pumpkins, and then he was pretty much over it and ready for bed. :) Rylie had fun carving her pumpkin and loved having Grandma and Papa there to help.

I thought this was is a picture of Rylie in the pjs carving pumpkins! :)
