I really need to get out of this habit of blogging once a month, because there are way too many pictures. We had a busy month starting off with a trip to Utah over fall break then came back and jumped right into all the fall and Halloween festivities.
We decided to be a royal family this year. We had Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Princess Minnie, and of course Aaron and I were the king and queen to all or our princesses.
All the hard work of trick or treating paid off for the girls, not necessarily for Aaron and I. This was the first year the girls kind of took control of their candy, it hasn't been as easy for us to steal any. So, we decided to hit up Target after Halloween to get our own stash, now we are all happy.

This was the best pictures we could get, all they wanted to do was "fly" around on sticks, screaming and running wild.

At least little Luc couldn't run away from me, I love this picture!

We were lazy about taking pictures on this trip, I feel like we did a lot more than we took pictures of. We were so excited to go up and see my sister, Jodi's family who has been living in Germany for the past 3 years. We also wanted to watch my brother play football, and I did a race with my sister, Jenny. We also loved rollerblading down Provo Canyon and enjoying Utah in the fall. Fall is definitely the season I miss most, so it was fun to get a little taste of it.Visiting Grandma on her mission on Temple Square.
Maile lost her first 2 teeth on our trip. She never dared pull them out so both eventually just fell out, I think she was so relieved cause she was scared to death to let anyone touch them or do anything that might cause pain.
Thanksgiving Point!

I know our life seems like a big long vacation and to be honest it kind of has been like that ever since Lucy was born. In the 2 1/2 months of her life that little gal has been to Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Hawaii, California, and Arizona. It has been a crazy, fun couple of months and we aren't even done. We head up to Utah in 9 days. It will be our last trip for a while. We have had so much fun visiting these amazing places and being with family, I'm not ready for the trips to end.
Here's another picture overloaded post. ...
We started out in San Clemente where we stayed at Aaron's aunt and uncles vacation home, it was unbelievable. It was the perfect spot, 5 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes from Disneyland. Loved it! After staying there for almost a week we headed up north by San Francisco for Johanna (Aaron's cousins) wedding. We love our trips out there cause they spoil us rotten with huge yummy feasts for every meal, shower the girls with gifts, and keep us entertained all day. What more could you ask for in a vacation? Well, maybe more sleep, we were all exhausted when we got home, I'm still trying to recover.
The girls had been anticipating this trip since Maile's birthday because instead of a party we told her she was getting a surprise in California. The excitement and anticipation mounted since we were there 3 days before they got it. The surprise was Disneyland, we recorded it but forgot to take a picture of them with their faces covered as we strolled up to the entrance and then unveiled the surprise. It wasn't quite the reaction we were hoping for, but they loved it! These pictures were taken the morning we woke up and they realized we had finally made it to California.

Aaron's cousin Kristine and her husband Ben are living at the house in San Clemente so they showed us everything to do there including swimming at Ben's parents house, which has to be the most amazing pool I've ever seen in a backyard. We could have spent all of our days there, it was so much fun. We got a little carried away with our action shot pictures of jumping off the waterfall and rocks, but we got some awesome ones. I didn't include Emmy's little skinny dipping jumps, but those were some great ones too. We were getting ready to go when we looked outside and saw Emmy climbing the rocks with her bare boodie hanging out. She thought it was hilarious and has since tried doing it 2 more times.

These were our 1st attempt at a family photo for our Christmas card (usually we have to have a couple photo shoots) and a picture to replace our outdated family picture in our house that is like 4 years old and is missing Olivia and Lucy.DISNEYLAND!
Livy didn't seem to love Disneyland as much as Emmy and Maile while we were there. She basically just cried on every ride except Its a Small World and she didn't like being close to the characters, but she loved the parade and loved the characters from a distance. Now that we are home, she can't stop talking about Minnie Mouse and how funny Goofy was. She seriously keeps talking about Disneyland all day, so she must have loved it more than it showed. Uncle Spencer came out a few days early so he could play with us at Disneyland, I don't think we could've managed without him and the girls absolutely love him.
Since Disneyland was Maile's big birthday surprise we got her one of those Birthday buttons, so she got lots of extra attention, which she loved.
Aunt Karolyn and Kathy really know how to spoil us.
Love any chance we get to see "amer" and Grandpa Kerr
