Happy Halloween

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Happy Halloween! We started our trick-or-treat rounds early on Sunday afternoon. We had a couple of house to go to.

Our sweet little pumpkin!

OH! I just love her!

The Westbrooks were the first stop...
Amy was in her costume - a firefighter
Jessi was Jessi
& please notice how Kimber is looking at the hat...
Kimber ringing the door bell
D & Grandnanny were second

The Andersons were third

Kimber checking out her loot...

And Grand and Poppa were next...

& we were O-V-E-R it!
Kimber did great for the time she wore her costume. It paid off to have her wear it around the house for the month of October. Cannot wait to trick-or-treat with her next year.

Kimberly & Eric's Shower

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Kimberly (Rhonda Anderson's daughter) was in town from California with Eric...they are expected their first child in March. So, we had to have a party! Amy and I hosted the tacky but always fun (& I will continue to give) inappropriate shower mixed with a real gift card shower! Hands down the "funnest" baby shower! A great time was had by all - at La Fiesta Mexican restaurant!

Happy 28th Birthday!

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I was able to celebrate my 28th birthday with some of my favorite people: Kimber, Adam, Momma, and Daddy. I requested my traditional birthday dinner - spaghetti! I had a wonderful birth month!
Love my new butter dish!

Westbrook Pumpkin Carving

Sunday, October 24, 2010

I am a sucker for traditions and the Westbrook's Annual Pumpkin Carving Party is one of my favorite traditions! The Westbrooks always throw a great party, everyone feels welcome, and we always get in the Halloween spirit!

Kimber brought Amy a hostess present...
Still trying to get her comfortable with her costume hat.
This year Amy did a chili cook off. Everyone brought chili - and ummm I won!

Everyone needs purple vampire teeth!

Daddy and Momma came along this year...

45 people...most carving a pumpkin

Kimber tasted fresh pumpkin

And a L-O-V-E Story!
Kimber met Carson and Collin...I teach with their Grandmother, Susan Shaner.

She is mine!

Oh, you think?

Yep, she is mine!

Told ya! & it is sealed with a kiss!

Uncle Bob's Pumpkin Patch

Sunday, October 17, 2010

We headed to Uncle Bob's Pumpkin Patch to pick out a pumpkin, see the animals, take pictures, enjoy the weather and most importantly be with each other...

Piles of pumpkins

Sweet Kimber found the one she wanted

Just love this picture of Adam and his little girl

Our Family!

This lady - was teaching about spinning wool - and she looked at Adam and asked his name ...he told her and then she said...I WAS YOUR KINDERGARTEN TEACHER! She remembered him! Guess it is his "baby face"?!

& then she taught me how to spin using a spindle.

Where's Kimber...

There she is!

Friday, October 8 - Monday, October 11, 2010

Early Friday morning - Adam, Kimber, my Momma and Kimber loaded up and headed to Florida. Months and months ago I made reservations with The Disney Princesses for Kimber to have breakfast with them at The Magic Kingdom for Saturday, October 9. I highly recommend having a "character meal" - we had a great day at the Magic Kingdom. Adam and I went back on Saturday evening to ride the roller coasters...and Disney was P.A.C.K.E.D. We enjoyed the greatest outlet mall ever in Orlando on Sunday. On Monday we drove home....what a trip! We had a wonderful time and made lost of new memories...

Enjoying the Florida sun

The pool was to cold...

so Kimber enjoyed the faucet!
