Well, this weekend we took an adventure with Megan, Robbie and Hannah and got our Christmas trees. We usually go to Klicker's in Walla Walla where you go, pick out your tree and they come and cut it down for you. This year we don't plan on going to Tri-Cities so we found a new place just like it in Cashmere called Shelton's Tree Farm. Each tree is $50 and you go hunt it down and they come and cut it for you and take it to your truck. I really wanted a blue spruce - so that's what we got! Although, I didn't enjoy getting poked by it numerous times as I was trying to string the lights - warning for people who want a blue spruce. I was a little worried about the tree when it first went up, it appeared to be a little smaller than we usually like (click here to see last year's tree). But in the end it turned out pretty nice. Now... off to decorate the rest of the house!
Ok, so I think that this is funny. Sometimes when Lily wakes up she wants oatmeal instead of cereal (I know, I am a gourmet cook) but she always says "oatmilk". For the life of me I cannot get her to say it right. :) Just think its pretty funny and something that I will want to remember when she gets a little older.

The whole crew!
Halloween was a lot of fun this year. Dylan was a scary zombie convict (no pictures with his mask on though - I forgot) and Lillian was a baby chick, although she looked a little more like big bird than a chick. They both got way more candy than they needed and we all have been working on eating it. Lily really understood this year and had a great time. She still tries to knock on doors and say trick-or-treat! It's pretty funny.
Lillian is pretty enamored with the moon lately and will point it out wherever she is and whenever she sees it. It can still be light out but the moon is visible and she will point and say "Look Mom, the Moon!"
Can you believe it? He had a party with some of the neighborhood boys. They rode bikes, had pizza and watched a movie on the big screen. A sign of kids growing up... no more toys - just cash! Happy Birthday Dylan!
p.s. He woke up the next day and said that he was sad. I asked him why and he said it was because his birthday was over and now he would have to wait a whole year for it to come again.
So Lillian likes to pretend that she makes you food in her little house. She will stick her head out of the window and ask "what you want?" Jake and I have made a little game out of asking her to make us the hardest things to say like: spaghetti, watermelon, hamburger, etc. It is pretty funny to hear her try to say the bigs words, but she tries!
Dylan (in the middle) and his buddies Cody and Austin at practice.
This is Dylan's first year of football and he loves it. He has some neighbor buddies on his team so it makes it nice for us to go to games a practices. For 3 weeks they had practice every night! He plays corner back and he is really tough!
So this morning I was getting ready and I put on a dress. Lily looks up at me and says "Mommy, you look beautiful - are you going to go dance with daddy?" I thought that it was so funny the way she thought that out!
