So my fun girl's nights we had planned this month (well deserved I think) have come and gone. But all of it was such a blast! The So You Think You Can Dance tour show was excellent!! They did all my favorite dances. Janeene and Phillip are still my favorites, but everyone was really amazing.

New Moon night was so much fun. Angie, your party was great! You are such a sweet hostess, thanks for inviting me. We went up to the theater to get in line around 8pm. We didn't have to sit on the floor long though, they let us into the theater about an hour later, so we had comfy seats to sit in for the next 3 hours. The movie was awesome. And so much better done than Twilight. I cannot wait for Eclipse! :)

Random Thoughts

Mindy's Random Thoughts Lately:

~We took the girls to see A Christmas Carol last weekend. I love Jim Carrey, but it was kind of scary for kids. And it was in 3D and my kids hate wearing those glasses. Lexi wore them, but of course Ava refused. It's a good thing she's free... it was probably a blurry picture for her.

~It's only week 2 of track break and Lexi is driving me crazy! But at the same time, it's nice to have her home and have a break in routine.

~I got the H1N1 vaccine yesterday @ my doctor's office. And I woke up today with pink eye. I know it's totally unrelated (I mean the shot and pink eye, not being in the drs. office and pink eye, cuz that could totally be a factor), but interesting nonetheless.

~I've been wanting to make pumpkin bread for weeks now, but haven't had the motivation. Anyone have a good recipe??

~I miss my husband. Ever since he transferred to MV, he's come home late every night. :(

~I am in desperate need of a girl's night out. 3 more days and I'll get one!! Going out to celebrate Apryl's bday and then to the So You Think You Can Dance tour, to see the season 5 top ten. Soooooooo stoked!

~I'm incredibly grateful for family/friends... I would be lost without you!! Hope everyone is well!

Halloween Fun

*WARNING: Picture overload!
We seemed to spread out the Halloween holiday for a few days this year. It started with the girls and their cousin Abby riding the rides @ one of the roadside pumpkin patches.

Benj carved this at a pumpkin carving party with friends... I watched. Good job babe! ;)

The girls both had costume parties @ school. This is Lexi in class, they had orange snacks. I had a cute video of Ava and her class singing a Halloween song, but I can't get it to upload.
Grandma Diana sent the girls fun stuff from Crate & Barrel to decorate cupcakes. They had a lot of fun making their creations! Thanks Mom! Lexi: An angel
Ava: Tinkerbell minus the wings... she refused to wear them.

Trunk or Treat night Lexi liked cleaning out the pumpkin... Ava, not so much. Benj carved a Tinkerbell pumpkin, it turned out great. Took the kids to Shark Reef where kids in costume got in free and got to trick or treat. Benj has taken the girls several times, but this was my first time there. It's pretty cool. Hope everyone had a great Halloween!! Now we get to gear up for more holidays. :)
