a different happy halloween

last year we had tons of pumpkins...
including the cutest one in the middle.

last year kenzie went to 2 halloween parties.
1 at grandma dianes and 1 at our place.
she was a punk rocker. unfortunately i never took a picture of her in her costume.
don't ask why not. im very upset about it.
we wanted to go trick or treating with our friends and planned to go with the andersons but changed our minds last minute because our little girlie was just not feeling to great. we didn't know if it was just a cold or what was going on but the cold weather wouldnt have been good for her. so we stayed in. we ate candy. watched tv and had only 3 or 4 trick or treaters.
we stayed warm. we were together. it was perfect.

this year. it hasn't been the same. we wanted to dress her up. we wanted to take her out. we wanted to get her pumpkins. we wanted to take her to see the witches. we had lots of things we wanted to do.
we ended up doing none. mainly because we couldn't think about doing them without her.
grandma becky bought kenzie a pumpkin so that's the only one we had until it started rotting away.
we got another little one to take to her.
we didn't carve anything. we didn't go to see the witches. we didn't buy her a costume.
but we did want to go out. we went trick or treating. we went with our nieces and nephews and friends.
we had devlin so he definitely kept us busy. and distracted.
until we went home. without her. without our pumpkin. without our dressed up little girl.
the night was hard but we ate our troubles away in candy we stole from devlins bag.
this year our halloween was spent here.
its a different place than last year. we never dreamed this would happen.
we brought halloween balloons, halloween toys, halloween books, halloween buckets.
we hung out with our pumpkin for a while on halloween.
ryan thinks we would have dressed her as a cow...
 i think we would have dressed her as sleeping beauty.

we shared her pumpkins with her great grandma, grandpa and uncle.
we read. we cried. we laughed.
we blew tons of kisses and we wished her a very
Happy Halloween!

our annual partay

Every year since we have been in our place we have hosted a Halloween Party. Every year it never fails we end the night with tons of juicy pictures, belly aches from laughing so much and awesome memories.
This year was no different. We had tons of friend and family come for a great evening.
We ate great-drank tons-played till the wee hours.

*this is my CHLOE, isn't she beautiful. she is one of my most favorite people in the world. she reminds me so much of kenzie with her amazing spirit and zest for life. she is such an inspiration.*

Ryan was a white trash wrestler and I was his lady. yup. a WT honey.
We dress the same as AL&D.

Those boys were hilarious.
Everyone else looked amazing!
we danced, ryan broke his wedding ring, we ate, there was wresting going on, we laughed for hours and finally passed out around... umm... morning.

Last Camping trip of 2010

We love camping. Its no secret. We love being outside, getting dirty and running around for hours on end. Over UEA weekend we took the opportunity to go camping with our family 1 last time this season.
We headed west to the Knolls.
Loaded up the 4wheeler.the dogs. treats. tent. lots of blankets

we got there right in time to take the wheeler out to watch the sun go down.

After the amazing night time ride we headed back to camp for dinner and a movie.

The next day was spent riding, riding and more riding.

.cant wait until next year.
