Gingerbread House: friend or foe?

Gingerbread house for FHE. Easy lesson (temples). Friend.

Lots of laughter. Learning new skills. Friend.

Sweet messes of fun. But all in a plastic tray. Friend.

Is it just me or do you end up swiping candy off the house for days after said house is finished?

Sweet enemy.

Just for Giggles

I have an idea for some laughs.
Take your child(ren) to sit on Santa's lap.

But first, make sure they look messy.

If you know my son, this is a funny picture.

It was taken a week ago and I'm still laughing.
But I wasn't laughing during the tantrum the whole ride home when he realized Santa wasn't going to give him his present right then and there.
But now I'm laughing.

Mr. Pulluphead

While I was getting dressed for church I tried to convince Alex to go potty. Within a few minutes he yelled "I'm done!" and came out looking like this. I kid you not- I had the camera inches away. I was laughing so hard I could hardly take the shot.

Halloween 2008

After a short nap...
Put on costume, found his Elmo trick or treat bag in car waiting for him...

Exclaims "Elmo! I missed you!"
Drove to Bela Gloria's
Seriously getting into the role...

Drove to Orem- look what I saw on the rear-view mirror...a vampire...with blood-sucking fangs! Oh, wait, those aren't blood-sucking fangs, they're 2 bloody sucker fangs!

Removal of candy bag, followed by a tantrum- (no picture, out of respect...and inability to drive and take pics at same time)

Headed back to Belo and Bela's in Orem to trick or treat with cousins
Chumbi waiting at a safe distance...
Two little Dinos
Cuter pics to follow....

Pickin' the punkins

(I didn't feel like bringing out the tripod and setting up 'cause I was cold and it was late so we took quick pictures....

Next week....jack o'lanterns. Boo!
