We went to Trunk or Treat at the Draper Army Headquarters. That was a lot of fun for the kids. There was the doughnut on a string. Nice job buddy!
Decorating your own cookie, and miniature golfing for their candy. There were 'junior leaders' handing out mardigras beads. Kaisey loved those.
AND finally there were balloon makers. There were 2 to choose from. One that was a clown (boo!) and the other one looked like Santa Clause (yeah!!!) So Santa made the kids both a dog, and a bear holding a heart, or a smiley balloon. So cute! They had a great time until.......
Oh yes....it happened. The dreaded balloon popped, and the tears just kept coming.
Then we went to our ward Trunk or Treat. Chad is a super funny man in my ward (awesome family!) Chad came dressed as Frankenstein. He is a tall man anyhow (around 6 feet tall). He wore a pair of stilts (he's a painter), and that made him around 9 feet tall. All of the children are very frightened of him in his costume. Anywho...Kali lost track of him for a minute. Kali "Dad, where'd the tall guy go?" Trent "I don't know, maybe he went into the hall." Kali "How'd he get out there? He's too tall?" Trent "I think he must have ducked."
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
