Amma came to visit!

I love it when my mom comes to visit. We always have fun just sitting around watching movies, doing puzzles and eating. This time we had a cute baby to stare at also. Thanksgiving day was fun, we woke up and watched the parade and started cooking.
Corey and mom made the most delicious rolls ever. Luckily for us the recipe was huge so we got to snack on them all week.
Corey was a good sport and she stuffed our turkey. Aaron had hurt his thumb and had a bandaid on, so we didn't want him to lose the bandaid in the turkey! My mom had read a story on the internet a few days before about something similar happening. It made us laugh.
The girls had their own table set with the turkeys we made with grandma and grandpa.
The adult table. Thanksgiving was a success. I think it was the tastiest turkey I have ever had.
A few days later Ashlynn fell asleep like this during lunch.
We decided to make some sugar cookies while Amma was here.
Ashlynn was too little last year to remember making cookies. She had fun but her and Cambria's cookies were mostly sprinkles.
I always make their frosting separate because they just lick their knives the whole time.
The night before Amma left we all got to sit around and watch baby Cora. Cambria has been dying to hold her but she is so tiny so we have been trying to keep the kids away from her and not let them touch her too much. They are so excited to have a new baby cousin living so close to us.
Cambria took this picture. My mom put the remote next to her to show how tiny she is. She is so cute!

Halloween Fun

On Thursday we went to the Pumpkin patch. It was cold so we didn't stay long, but Cambria and Ashlynn wanted every pumpkin they saw.


I love these things. So easy, and no mess! I'm not sure why Cambria is making that face though.
Corey had a few days off so she came to stay with us and we had a little party. I made Aaron go buy some dry ice, and he had to go to a few places before he found some. It was worth it. I remember my dad doing this when I was little. It was the witch's brew. So fun.
It was bubbling and overflowing all over the counter.
It also made the kool aid really cold and slushy. It was really yummy.
Sunday night we went to Blackfoot to eat and carve pumpkins.
Cambria actually put her hand in the pumpkin this time, but only because Fiona did first. It was cute, they drew their face on and cut it out themselves.

Ashlynn likes carving pumpkins too but she thought it was stinky, and she would not put her hand in.

Park City

Well these first 3 pictures were from the day before we left, but they were so cute I had to add them. Ashlynn loves to dress up. She is always wearing some sort of skirt or princess dress. She is just like Cambria.
They love it when I move the chairs out of the kitchen to mop. They think making a train is the funnest thing.
This is what it looked like the day before we left. As soon as it started snowing I went outside and rescued our onions, peppers, zucchini and carrots that were still growing. It is a good thing I did. It has been so cold lately that all of the plants are dead and wilted now. I have tons of onions and carrots. Maybe I'll make chicken noodle soup.
We stayed in Park City this weekend with Aaron's parents and Jaymee. I have never been to Park City before, it is really cute. We went to the Utah Olympic Park to see the museum and there were people practicing! It was very cool to watch them.
There was a lot of neat stuff to look at in the museum.
They are ready for the olympics.


Do you think they would let a pregnant lady run with the torch?
Corey is on a bobsled team. She looks so tiny.


Right above the red spot on the picture there is a tiny person in red. I never realized how high up they are and how fast they go.

Run Corey!
There was a little mishap with the bubbles and Ashlynn was not liking it at all.
Grandpa got a new bike!
We could have stayed and watched this all day, but it was cold and snowy. You can't see the people very well sorry, it was snowy and bright outside.

One of the cutest kids in the world. I think she got this from a movie and she did it to Aaron one day. It was funny.

Ashlynn is loving this

The first few days Cambria went to school Ashlynn was sad that she left without her, but then she quickly learned that she could do whatever she wanted. I let her play in Cambria's room the first few days and watch a movie and she didn't make a mess, then she just started pulling everything out and getting into Cambria's jewelry and losing things. This made Cambria mad.
So I started locking Cambria's door while she was at school. It seems mean but Ashlynn broke some stuff and lost some jewelry, and for everyone who knows Cambria, she is very weird about her stuff. She didn't like Ashlynn in her room while she was away. Also I did not like cleaning up the mess. Ashlynn would pull stuff out just because she thought it was funny.
She tried really hard to open the door, it was hilarious.
She was saying "push"!
She has also been falling asleep around the house because she does not like to take naps anymore but she still needs them because she is tired.
Note to self: one zucchini plant is sufficient, zucchini grows very well in our backyard.

Fashion Show and First Day of School

Cambria was so excited to have her grandparents over for dinner yesterday. She helped make pizza on the grill, it was so good. We even got out our fancy punch bowl that she always begs to use, for her back to school dinner. Then she did a fashion show. I only got pictures of 2 of her new outfits because she had started showing off her new clothes when we were still getting dinner ready because she couldn't wait.
When she came out she would try hard not to smile, it was cute.
Has anyone else noticed that kids backpacks are getting a lot bigger? This is the hugest backpack I have ever seen. I tried to get her to let me take it back to the store and buy a different one, but she wanted a backpack with Rapunzel on it so bad. I searched everywhere for Rapunzel, but they were sold out. Oh well, she will just have a giant backpack. Also, this picture makes it look even bigger, haha.
Ashlynn was singing to Lady Gaga in the background.
The traditional back to school photo by the front door. I don't think I have any from when I was little, one of my sisters please post some! I'm sure we look hilarious.

Getting in the car with all of her school supplies.
She was really excited, but I was nervous because all summer she was saying that she was scared to go to school. She also made me paint her nails last night.

Aaron took some pictures of her in her classroom, at first I thought it was weird to take our huge camera to her classroom, but all of the other parents were doing it too.
The girl sitting next to her was in her primary class last year, so I am glad she has someone to sit by that she knows. They were laughing really hard because they both had the same barbie folder from walmart.
Aaron took this picture, I think he was having a harder time leaving than I was.
