Halloween 2010

Halloween week here at the Cook house was quite eventful.
I started off the week with finishing off five Halloween costumes. Harry Potter, Belle, Minnie Mouse, Momma Mouse, and a vampire Jellybean. (I helped make one more the week before)
all without patterns baby!

We Celebrated Miss Lucy's Birthday on Wednesday
(here is the camera phone picture of Lucy and Red thanks Robyn!)

On Friday We had school parties, Parent teacher conferences (Ty is doing great!) , our good friends took Ty and Lucy out to the pumpkin patch while Chris and I went to the Conference. Then off Our ward Halloween trunk-or-treat party where Miss Lucy won the prettiest costume award, and Miss Vampire Jelly bean won the funniest costume award.

On Saturday we bought cameras with the kiddos birthday money, spent the afternoon at Cabela's spending Chris' birthday money and taking pictures with our newly bought cameras, we had some lunch at Chick-fil-a , then that night we carved our family pumpkins while listening to Halloween music.

The final products

Ty's was a scary pumpkin which said Boo!!

The girls were pretty easy to please.
Annie LOVED the pumpkins only after they had faces!

On Sunday We headed to church in the morning, we had an early dinner at "Our Truman's" where the kiddos (mom and dad) carved their pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, then home to do a little "visiting" with our neighbors on the Sabbath :)

Here are the kiddos in their costumes

Chris took Miss Annie home after a little bit of "visiting" where she was exhausted and fell asleep in the hallway. Too Cute!!!
(once again thanks to Aunt Robyn's camera phone)

After it all I now have three HUGE cold-sores but hey, we had fun!!!

Miss 4 year old!!

Miss Lucy Turned 4 Last Wednesday. Our Computer and Camera was giving us problems so we didn't have a post until now. Here is an fairly recent picture of our little Goose. I feel this picture captures her personality perfectly. She is always smiling...okay almost always (with a little bit of goofy on the side) Lucy's day started off by heading off to school armed with mini cupcakes to share with her preschool class. Then we came home to watch princess movies and what ever Miss Lucy wanted to do for the day. When Daddy came home, we went to Red Robin for her birthday just like Ty because she wanted her very own ice cream too. When we told our server that all she wanted for her birthday was Red Robin. He thought we meant the mascot Red and so he found Red in the back of the restaurant to come say happy birthday to her. Lets just say our waiter got a good tip! Luckily Aunt Robyn's Camera phone was working so we will at least have some memories of Lucy's fourth birthday. Those pictures will come soon. When we came home we had more mini cupcakes and opened a lot of presents. We had minor melt downs by a certain big brother due to a pillow pet and a tad bit of jealousy but it has since been resolved. We will be having a little fairy tea party with her friends so those pictures will be posted next week too. Miss Lucy we love you so much goosey goose! We are so lucky to have you!

Here our four fun facts about our little four year old
  1. Miss Lucy loves her Prince...aka Daddy
  2. Miss Lucy has the sweetest voice. Everywhere we go we always get a comment of how sweet her little voice is.
  3. Miss Lucy LOVES animals.
  4. Lastly Lucy is all girl, but doesn't let it stop her from keeping up with the boys.
