Collin Raye!!!!

Last week Brian and I got to go to the Collin Raye Concert at the Desert Star Theater.  Brian's parents gave us the tickets back in August for our birthdays, so it was FINALLY time!!! 
I love Collin Raye, I've loved him forever.  He turned me to country music back in the day..sniff, sniff.  He was AWESOME!!!!  Brian didn't realize he would know so many of the songs, but he did and enjoyed the concert ALMOST as much as I did.  :)

Disney on Ice

Last weekend we took Kaitlyn to Disney on Ice.  She LOVED it! 
 Kaitlyn's good buddy Jack came with his parents too.  The two kiddos were VERY excited as the show was about to begin!

 Dasiy and Minnie!
 One EXCITED little girl!  During the whole show Kaitlyn kept saying "this is so awesome!" and "this is the best thing I've ever seen!"
 Pumba & Timone!

 My brother Dane and my neice Camryn

 Peter Pan even flew for us!

 And one of the best parts of the night for Kaitlyn...the Trax ride back to our car!

We had a very happy Halloween!  To start the festivities, I made pumpkin pancakes with pumpkin faces.  Kaitlyn loved it, and who doesn't love chocolate with breakfast!
For dinner we had some Witches Brew and I made Mummy Dogs and bloody daggers! (Ew)
 Here is our sweet Minnie Mouse! I couldn't find any Minnie costume I liked very much so I ended up making this one and I think it turned out pretty cute!  Kaitlyn LOVED it and getting it off her at the end of the night was quite the struggle! 
 Hailey went as a baby lamb.  So CUTE!  I dressed as a KC Chiefs player. Go Chiefs! (It fit over my belly and was very comfy...perfect for me!)
 Trick-or-Treating was very fun.  We took the girls out with their friends Porter and Ellery.  They were a cute group!  Kaitlyn actually got cold pretty fast and was done after a few of the scary masks she saw.  But Hailey LOVED it!  She'd go right up to the door to get that candy.  She was just a little upset that she couldn't eat the candy while we were going. 
 My siblings were pretty creative.  Allyx went as a camper and Taylor as a Lawn Nome.  So Funny. 
 My sis-in-law Tamara wins the night!  She dressed as Rainbow Bright and her daughter Kenzie was a little Sprite.  I LOVE it!!!!
 My cousins crack me up!  the picture on he left was a Halloween probably close to 20 years ago, they re-created it this Halloween.  We were dying, it was awesome!
 Stephanie won the HOT award as Little Red Riding Hood!
 Cute Cousins!
 Nana, Papa, and all their grandkiddos!  (Its about time they are getting a boy huh!)
 It was a great Halloween!  Its stuff like this that makes being a mom sooo fun!
