Chloe and Connor are in town for Christmas so we decided to meet them, Michelle, and Ronnie at the zoo for ZooLights. The line was long but we got in quickly. Connor and Chloe entertained Camryn and Brandon while we waited in line. It would be nice to have them around more often.

Camryn loved looking at the lights!

The talking giraffe was the highlight of the night for Camryn!

Helping Daddy Work

Derek cleans the Arizona Cardinals uniforms every week. He brought some of the jerseys home to work on. Camryn was so happy and proud to be helping him!

Camryn made this ornament for us at school last week. She was so excited to give it to us! I love it!

Sunday Football at the Rana's

We had a fun Sunday at the Rana's watching football. We were able to get the kids to be quiet with a movie and a sucker.

Camryn loves to go to school so much! She keeps asking all morning long when it is time to go. This morning she wouldn't stop smiling so I had to snap a few pictures!

Superstition Springs Farm Moo-ey Christmas

My friend Kim was selling her EMMAZING GRACE CREATIONS at a boutique at Superstition Springs Farm so we decided to check it out. Camryn was in awe of the animals when we got there.

She would only get close enough to wave to the animals
We made smores

Camryn played in some fake snow that was actually cotton seed
We finished up with a hayride around the farm and got to see a lot a cows. Gotta love the smell!

Camryn and I decorated this gingerbread house together. It was a pre-built one but still not that easy. Camryn put all the candy on and then ate all the rest that were supposed to go on the tree and gingerbread man. Camryn definitely didn't get an artistic mom but it was still fun.

Camryn had fun helping cook for Thanksgiving! This is before she got sick. She wasn't feeling well on Thanksgiving and didn't eat a single bite of Thanksgiving dinner. She did manage to have some ice cream.

Camryn wanted to be Dora again this year so I got Brandon a Boots the monkey costume to go along with Dora. By the time halloween came around she wanted to be Cinderella so we didn't get Dora with her sidekick Boots. Camryn loved being Cinderella and loved going trick or treating with her friends. Her favorite part might have been handing out candy when we got home. This is the only picture we got of Brandon with the head piece on. He wanted nothing to do with it.

Preschool Fieldtrip

We went to Mother Nature's Farm with Camryn's preschool class. She got to pretend drive the tractor.

Brandon came along for the fun!

They got to pick out their own pumpkin to decorate.

Brandon enjoyed walking around and tried to eat the hay every chance he got.

We got to go for a hayride!
Feeding the animals

Brandon also found some tunnels to crawl through.

We had a fun day!

Pumpkin Carving

We had fun carving pumpkins with our neighbors this year. This is the first time I have carved a pumpkin as an adult. Here is the group getting started.

Brandon enjoyed watching

Camryn wouldn't help scoop out the pumpkin guts. It was too gross.

Our finished products! Mine has the triangle eyes. Remember this was my first one in a long time. Camryn wanted smiley faces for both of them.

Railroad Park

We went to the railroad park in Scottsdale for Will's birthday party! It was a great place to take the kids. We lived right next to it for two years and I had no idea what a great playground and train it had for the kids. I guess when you don't have kids you don't notice those types of things. Here are a few pictures from the train ride.
