Deep Breathing in Progress

and relax....

Whew, it has been a crazy last few weeks and I have been remiss in my blogging duties.  I know you all forgive me, those faithful few who still check this blog.  :)

We have been TRAVELING, and by we I mean the whole family but not in the same directions. Chris has started a new position which is AWESOME and took him to New York for 2 weeks so the boys and I packed up and shacked up with his parents in California.  It was a wonderful two weeks and helped the time fly while we were apart.

Highlights from my trip...
Being in Palm Springs where the weather was fabulous
Feeding a giraffe (Shayden was so into it and got in line 3 times)
Getting to experience Disneyland for the 1st time
Spending the weekend with John and Marilee (my Arizona parents)
Working out with my mother-in-law
Long walks, messy meals and days filled with entertaining two little boys
We had a blast!

And now the Disneyland Pics...I should preface these by saying Chris thinks I had the most fun there, and he might be partly correct, but Shayden and Quinton were captivated as well.  All in all it was a wonderful surprise from Grandpa and GranDanna and I will always remember the boys faces that day.  Especially when Shayden "saw" Buzz Lightyear - priceless!

Thank you Grandpa and GranDanna for taking us on a wonderful adventure while Chris was away.  We love you!

Trick or Treat

What Fun!!!  I have to say that I love little children in costumes and the process of cheerfully taking all your neighbors generous sugar handouts.  We had another blast trick or treating this year and the boys kept us smiling and laughing throughout the entire evening.  
Shayden of course is a seasoned pro at 3 and needed no encouragement to hit the streets.  Quinton was much too young last year to enjoy the entire process but caught on very quickly this year.  He loved the "pick and drop" process and wasn't bashful at all climbing stairs and trotting up to perfect strangers.  
All in all a great evening with family and friends.
