October! ps. This is a very long post!

Finger Painting!!

She loves to finger paint, there is just something about making messes that Evi thinks is just great fun. She would paint for a minute then stop and look at her hands (she doesn't like when her hands are dirty) but then she would return to her masterpiece.

Yes she did get it all over the floor but that is the beauty of washable paint! It is hard to find projects for little ones but this is a fun one we will do often as long as we are up for a mess. I had to put this one it it was just so funny. She had paint all up her nose form this one.

Time for a bath.

In the car all excited to go to the Cornmaze and pumpkin patch. We went to the Black Island Farms. We first wanted to go to Thanksgiving point but didn't want to make the drive and I am so glad because this one was so much fun and perfect for her.

In the corn maze. Luckily they have an easy side and a hard side so we went for the easy one and found our way out pretty quickly. I was just worried it would start getting dark before we made it out.

They had a little tunnel for the little ones to walk through and she loved it. We had a hard time getting her out and I don't know why but she loves sticks and so she loved all the stuff on the ground.

Going on the big slide with Daddy!

They had so many pumpkins it was crazy.

Is this one good enough?

We finally picked one out. We didn't let her down too much in the pumpkin patch because it was so dirty and stinky and I was so smart and had her wearing white baby legs.
We had a good time we will definitely be going back next year!

Carving her first pumpkin!

She was such a good little helper. She helped scoop out the seeds for about 15 minutes and then she sat and played with it.

Evi loved it. We went outside everyday to look and play with the pumpkin. I love doing new things with her it's like you get to experience it all over again.

The finished product. It is supposed to be winking if you didn't know. We are beginners. . .

Happy Birthday to Brandi! For Brandi's Birthday we went to the Gateway and had lunch at CPK and did a little shopping. We had such a fun time. We get so silly when we are together especially when we are tired!

Not the greatest picture but oh well. Love these girls!

For those of you that don't know my mom's birthday is on Halloween so she never really gets to have a birthday. So this year we had a surprise party for her.

I think she was excited. The day before I told her that we were going to Idaho so she would think I was mean for not hanging out with her and everyone else had a similar situation where they were doing something else. It was pretty funny. Love ya Mom!

Her first sucker. I guess it is just what you do on Halloween.

Here we are. Collin was a Dance teacher and I was a Public Relations manager. As you can see we really went out of our way to dress up. . .
My little fairy!

First time Trick-or-Treating! We only went to one house but don't worry she took three treats.
Hope everyone else had a Happy Halloween. On to Thanksgiving and Christmas. . . Oh man it comes too soon.

Yes we are alive!

I know I have been a really bad blogger lately but I have been super busy; and to be honest I don't really care about blogging right now. I'm sure I'll get over it and get posting! Evi is getting bigger by the minute and she is talking and learning new words like crazy. She can make a lot of animal noises (I have been trying to get it on video but for some reason she is camera shy). I have been super busy. I am taking three classes online, at this rate I will graduate in approximately 50 years. I teach dance three nights a week! And I have a super energetic 15 month old that now only takes one nap. Collin is working working working and will be leaving me and Evi to go on a business trip to Prague for a week and a day! Well there you have it there is our update! Hope all is well with everyone else! P.S. I am so excited for Fall.

Mexico! Just me and my Collin!!

Our Hotel. Villa Del Arco! I know this picture is blurry but our hotel was awesome! Great swimming pools, restaurants and best of all right on the beach!

No that couple is not us; Just ignore them:) The crazy beautiful ocean. Me and Collin totally Kayaked all the way over to the little beach in between the rocks. .. (Go us) Also known as Lovers Beach. It is really cool; On one side of the beach is the Atlantic Ocean and the other side is the Pacific Ocean. The waves one the Pacific side were enormous and fierce. You aren't allowed to swim in it but some local teenage boy were attempting to surf in it. . .Crazy!

Oh how I love the beach at night, almost as much as I love Collin!

Another hotel pic.

The locals that make a living off of the tourists. I gave in a few times but I became farely good at bartering!

Had to put this one in even though I think it's kinda cheesy.

Collin hanging out waiting for some yummy Mexican food.

Me enjoying a virgin pina colada. Mmmm!

On the Beach! We had so much fun but we were really bad at taking pictures. We went parisailing together one day, we rented a jet ski and if any of you have ever done that on the ocean you will know how crazy fun it is. Not only is the water ridiculously choppy with enormous waves but every time you land a big wave the salt water sprays into your face and you get temporarily blinded! SO fun!! We went to some fun restaurants in town and I'm not gonna lie I was scared to death of eating the authentic Mexican food I didn't want to get sick! I can tell you that we made it through our trip with only a few minor digestive trouble! Thanks to our wonderful moms that loved and took care of our Evi!!

Catching Up *Seattle*

Me, my mom, my sisters, Xander and Evi went to seattle and stayed at my uncle Dennis and aunt Nicoles beach house in June. We had a blast and enjoyed our girl time together.
Getting ready to take off. . . Seattle here we come!

Evi did so good on the Aeroplane she played for a minute then fell asleep and woke up right in time to look out the window as we landed.

Ev loves the water, too bad it was too cold to play in. But we will be back!

Mmmm sand. . .the highlight of the day for Evi!

In the Car.

She was so good for having to be in the car for five hours. Our drive wasn't supposed to be that long but we got lost:( Not fun

For those of you Twilight fans. .. I drove right past forks on the way to the beach house!

Xander is Evi's favorite playmate. These two are so cute together and they love each other so much.

She adores him.

Sharing snacks!

This one is my favorite.

The mini Merry GO Round

She LOVED it.

This is what she had to say about getting off. . .
