Halloween Parade

Today was a FUN Halloween filled day. At Tylers school they had a carnival and a Halloween Parade. I got up at 5:45 am to get everyone ready for the day. They closed the streets and had the junior high marching band lead all the kids up and down the streets showing off all their costumes. Even Ryan and Noah joined in. Here are a few pictures of the fun.

Pumpkin Carving

Yes, the holidays are here. Starting with everything Halloween. We've done the Pumpkin Farm, we picked out the costumes and now we have done the pumpkin carving. We got 3 pumpkins, one to represent each boy. Obviously Ryan and Noah are too little to do their own, however, Tyler got to design and carve his very own pumpkin this year! Daddy did the other two. Tyler had a blast, and surprisingly he stayed with this project. Ryan and Noah enjoyed a nice afternoon nap while we did the pumpkins. I had every intention of including them too but as they were waiting for us to get everything together they fell fast asleep. And since naps are pretty rare these days I decided I would take advantage of it. We have yet to light them at night so when we do I will post up another pic. Happy Halloween everyone.

Heavenly View

TJ and I had the opportunity to go away for our 30th birthday celebration. We went to a place called Aptos. It's about 15 minutes from Santa Cruz. It's beautiful, quiet and just what we needed to recharge our batteries. My mom and Ken graciously came to our house to stay with the kids. TJ and I walked the beach, talked, drank cocktails, sat by the cozy fire at night, had a wonderful meal that consisted of lobster tails, fillet Mignon, and vanilla bean creme brulle. The best meal we have EVER had. Here are a few pictures of the sunset that we had the pleasure of watching. It's hard to tell where the beach ends and heaven begins. Thank you mom and Ken for making it so we could go enjoy our time and for being such wonderful and loving parents and grandparents. We loved having you and so did the kids. Keep your heads held high, you will rise above. We love you.

My Beautiful Boys

Just a few pics at the house this weekend. They are just too cute not to post.

Dell Osso Family Farm

Well, it's been forever since my last post. But today we had an awesome day at the Pumpkin Farm. TJ took the day off to take us. The kids had a blast. We did the petting zoo of course which was stinky, but fun. All the boys fed the various farm animals. We did a tractor ride, a train ride, Tyler and TJ did the Pumpkin Blaster which is a huge air gun that shoots out mini pumpkins at speeds of 100mph! We did the corn maze, and a bouncy thing. Here are some of the pictures of our boys from the day.
