I don't know where in the world the time has gone- but somehow my little Lily has turned 2! The night before the kids Birthday, Skip and I blow up lots of balloons and decorate with signs and streamers. Skip and I were awakened at 6:00am but Lily yelling "balloons," "Happy Birthday!" "Mommy Daddy look!" She was so excited and totally knew it was her birthday and that she was going to get presents. Since I had a busy day at the church for super sat- we started right away with presents. Got the wrong kind of wrapping paper- it was a little hard to get off...poor thing. Big Brother helping her out. She didn't even wait for us to finish singing to blow out the candles! Still can't beleive she is 2!
Lily and I got to go on a little Mother Daughter trip to Utah for my sister Faye's wedding. It was so much fun to be with my whole family! And Lily- lucky girl got to come along for the weekend. Lily had a great time hanging out with her cousins Austin, Dylan and Sadie. Girls hanging out watching Enchanted. Two of my all time favorite gals...I don't get enought time with these 2! All the girls. My brother's did an awesome job picking their wives! Shawna (sorry this is the only picture I have of all of us), Kim, and Marge are so awesome!!!!!Love them!Faye looking great in her wedding dress. Taking a little water break after all the dancing and socializing at the reception. It was a great weekend- but as the weekend always is- it was way too short! Hopefully at the next family get together we will get pictures with all the guys in there too!

So far during our parenting years we have only done Trunk or Treating. But this year trunk or treat was early and we found ourselves with nothing to do on Halloween. So we tried to go trick or treating at the shopping center. It started at 4 we got there at 5- majority of the stores were out of candy. Boy were the kids upset- they afterall had been promised candy! So I called my good friend Kristen Wilson and we went over to their house and trick or treated around their neighboorhood. Oh my fun! The kids loved it and I loved watching the kids run from house to house. Eric yelling "Trick or Treat" the whole way between houses and Lily yelling "Wait for me Eric"! About halfway around the neighboorhood they started to loose some steam. By the end instead of saying Trick or Treat, Lily was telling people "I'm tired" or "I'm sleepy" and to me "I want my bed" It was so much fun! And oh my heck...the candy...way too much here!
