About Us

We are a family of 5 that moved from California to Arizona about 8 years ago. We love it here! We love to watch movies, enjoy the great outdoors when it's not blazing hot, play sports, hike, ride bikes and spend time together! Life is awesome and we wish the same to all of you!

Halloween Festivities

We started our Halloween off the night before with a cupcake party. We decorated chocolate cupcakes with a marshmallow buttercream frosting. Trust us when we say, delicious. We decorated them and ate em' up. Yummy to the tummy! Halloween started bright and early, mainly because the kids were so excited to put on their costumes. Jenna went to help in Conlan's class for their party. After school we gutted our pumpkins, carved them, got dressed up and went to Grandma's house for our festivities. Below are some pictures from the day. 
Just a sample of the cupcake before I devour the rest!

Deeelicious cupcakes!

Conlan did not want to partake in our festivities, so we consider ourselves
 lucky that he graced us with his presence! 

Aislinn daintily getting the pumpkin guts off her fingers.

Damara decided to try the pumpkin.

Here is a game that Jenna made for Conlan's class. We decided to
use the games from the class party to try and occupy little ones who had
to wait for the trick-or-treating to begin.

Damara did more eating than playing

Kyla and Conlan

Caydon, sorry buddy we know you don't like the camera

Auntie Bree and Aislinn making a witches broom craft

Olive and Popeye

Roxy Hart and Velma Kelly

Caydon as a hybrid Captain America/Ninja

Billy Flynn and Velma Kelly, together at last!

Sienna as cat woman/girl

We thought it appropriate that Sleeping Beauty fell asleep
during trick-or-treating!

Of course, Cinderella kept losing her shoe throughout the night!

Bryan saved the day. Conlan decided he wanted nothing to do with
pumpkin carving, so Bry carved us a Jack Skellington. The Nightmare Before Xmas
is the girl's favorite movie right now!
