Halloween was great. We went to our church's Trunk-Or-Treat, and then the kids went Trick-or-Treating around our neighborhood as well. That's Marq as a Ninja and Brantley as a skeleton. Much candy and fun was had by all!

Doesn't Ashlyn look just thrilled? Every 3 or 4 weeks Emily and Ashlyn have to have their hair re-braided. It's about a 6 hour job and not fun for anyone involved. Fortunately, Lexie is willing to do it nowadays so I don't have to anymore. Yea for big sisters!

Once again, we have 3 kids the same age. For a month or so, at least. Marq chose to get spend more money on gifts and skip a party this year. He wanted music! He's especially into Michael Jackson at the moment, and now has the girls singing along to Thriller too! For his birthday picks he chose: Lucky Charms cereal, taquitos and refried beans for dinner, and chocolate cake. He's such a sweetie and we love him so much. Happy Birthday sweetie!
We had beautiful weather for the 4th of July this year, thank heavens! After the rain and cold last year, the sun was very welcome. We just hung around during the day (I cleaned, of course!) and then had our usual BBQ and fireworks in the evening. It was different this year because the 3 older kids had their own things going with friends so it was just Tim and I and the 5 younger kids. 5 kids feels like nothing! I missed the older kids, but was glad they could have fun with their friends. I hope we're all together next year though!
Our membership to the Pacific Science Center was about to expire, so we decided we'd get in one last trip. As usual, everyone had a great time. Even Ellie and her boyfriend joined us. The Butterfly House was a favorite. Emily was so tired that she fell asleep on the way home. I love living in an area with so many great museums!
I remember Annie when she came home to us as an adorable 2 1/2 year old who had no idea who we were. She was such a spunky darling little one, and we quickly fell in love. She's still spunky and darling, and we still love her! For her birthday pics she chose: Lucky Charms cereal, hotdogs for dinner, and chocolate cake. Happy Birthday honey!

We started making green smoothies a few months ago and are totally hooked. They're so good for you and so tasty too - even with the greens in them. Even the little girls now know how to make a green smoothie, and can't wait until it's smoothie time everyday!
