Halloween '09

Ethan as a cowboy. Just waiting for us to say "Go!"

Zack as an Indian. The Chief didn't last long though. He got just what he wanted and called it good. This is just some lady's porch in the middle of trick-or-treating.

He stopped and admired every scary monster he came across.

Kayla and Cameron. The Flapper from the 20's, and the Mobster.

Zack and Cameron.

Desi and Bryson. This is Thing 2... Thing 1 is busy running from house to house.

Z and Bryson. I think Dr. Seuss would approve.

Just like taking candy from a baby.

Kayla, Cameron, and Fallyn.

Ethan's Birthday!

BraeLynne, Ethan, and Ashley. The funniest part about the unwrapping was the frenzied, glazed look that Ethan got as he frantically unwrapped one, set it to the side, and grabbed for another. I don't think he really saw much of anything after the Batman figurines.

Olivia and Ethan.

This is Mom's view of Zack demanding to be picked up. Personally, I think its just his ploy to wipe his face on Mom's black shirt.

BraeLynne, Ethan, and Ashley. He pulls this face every time that he is trying not to smile. What a cutie.

Ethan and Ashley. These two cousins are more alike than they yet know. They are both as crazy as their respective parents.

Just Zack

Our last trip to Vegas.

Cam had to go back to Vegas to take a test for school. So even though he was stressed about the test, we decided to make it into a vacation. Haley came along to keep me company while Cam was at school.

This is us at Stateline about to ride one of the tallest, fastest, steepest and longest roller coasters in the world. In fact, when it opened in 1993, it was THE tallest and fastest roller coaster in the entire world!

Well, do you?

After Stateline, we went to Ethan's favorite place... Chuckie Cheese's!

From the look on his face, you might be able to guess that its on his list of top places to go...

Even Zack had tons of fun. He played on every game in the place at least once... and we didn't even have to put any tokens in.
I love the age before the realize they aren't doing anything.

Cam is still in that age. He's been playing that game for 15 minutes and hasn't been given one token. Poor thing, he thinks he's winning.

This picture was taken before Cam took his test. Can you guess from his face what he's about to be tested on?

Yep, you guessed it. Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Ice Blocking

Yes, we went ice blocking. No, we didn't get chased by a golf course marshal. In fact, I checked before going... ice blocking isn't even illegal! Almost took all the fun out of it.

Golf courses just don't like it 'cause it ruins their grass. So we went to the park.

Even though ice blocking isn't illegal, that's not to say we didn't have a little "run in" with the law... but that's another story...

I happened to look in the dictionary for the definition of the word "hooligan". It reads: " - (hoo'li gen) a hoodlum, esp. a young one. Pl. form hooligans; see figure above." And sure enough, it had the picture of Logan, Haley, Mickell, Brianna, and Keaton behind blocks of ice!

They sure look like they are up to no good, don't they?

Here's Keaton showing how its done.

Torey showing us how fun it can be.

I sure can remember that awkward stage when you aren't sure how you are "supposed" to smile. Can you?

These guys make this look like a cinch. Stylish AND fun.

Look at this princess on double duty! Two frogs at one time makes two princes at one time. How economical.

So if the frogs kiss Mickell, will she turn into a frog? Hmmmm...

I think we may have permanently affected the frog population at the park.

Brianna is the prettiest little girl, isn't she? She just looks beautiful in this picture.

The Tea Party

What first comes to mind when you hear the following words: Springtime, girls only, tea, crumpets, crouqet, sun dresses, and floppy hats? Of course... a tea party. 

Kayla and Desi coordinated and hosted a tea party that would make Martha Stewart tinkle in her panties.

Here are some of the guests: Mandy Redd (cousin), Desi Zetterquist (co-hostess), Kayla (hostess), Autumn Reid (cousin), Kodye Porter (sister).

This is Fallyn Hatch and Kayla waiting for more tea from the butler (p.s. there was no butler, Cameron refused to do it).

Look at all these great tea-time foods.

Here are some of the guests again (with Shelley Hodge and Tiffanie).

What a beautiful setting! All we need is a few stuffed animals to fill the remaining chairs, and this fantasy-come-true would be complete.

Desi and the only male allowed to attend (Kodye's baby Austin).
Fallyn and Tiffanie looking smashing in their sun dresses.

And here's Fallyn getting thirds... and she still looks great. Don't we just HATE her?!

Boys Will Be Boys...

Here is Ethan, Zack, Jett, and Bryson playing in the new bad idea.

Uh oh... he's got that naughty look on his face!

See the new trick he's learned? Not only has he learned to climb onto the table, but he climbs chairs (pushed in or out), bikes, wheels, couches, beds, pets, and stairs... pretty much anything relatively stationary. He just has that "bad boy" look to him, doesn't he?

Defiant, and even teaching his brother the tricks of the trade... No Ethan! Stay your Dad's son! Don't listen to your Mom's son!
