Barlow Spa & Hotel

The girls had been asking if they could do some "spa" treatments from their American Girl book... so we had a sleepover with some friends and they did hair, facials, nails and makeup... super cute!This is their welcome sign to their friends Brooklyn giving Emily a facial with oatmeal and yogurt.

Trottin with the Turkeys

Does two in a row mean this is an annual event?? Melissa, Julie and me before our Thanksgiving Day 10k run (or trot... definitely not a gallop!)

Family Pictures

We needed to take some family pictures for Josh's parents' Christmas card... one Sunday we seemed to all be close to the same color palette so our good friend, Melissa took some for us. Zack was super grumpy and Tanner wasn't quite old enough to smile and look at the camera... but it is what it is!

Johnny Jumper

Remember this thing from the 80s? We have had it since Brooklyn was a baby but none of the kids have liked it much... so before sending it to Salvation Army... we thought to put TT in it... he has his own little party every time!

Disney Days...

... must come to an end. Our annual passes expired the end of November... these are photos of the kids living up the last couple of times.

For Halloween this year... we took a journey to Neverland and dressed up as Peter Pan characters. I couldn't find patterns/costumes for most... so I ended up making all but Tinkerbell's costume. Heres' the group photo at Josh's work (they have trick or treating every year for the kids)
