Happy Halloween

This year was so much fun with the 2 little ones!  Both Benjamin and Samantha loved going up to the doors and saying "trick or treat".  Benjamin has been really into Jake the Pirate (or "Pirate the Jake" as he says it!) and they have an episode that says "trick or treasure", so we had a mix of trick or treat or trick or treasure! It was so cute to see them walk up to the doors together! 

Here are some pictures from the evening!

Fall Family Pictures

We finally had some more recent family pictures taken!  My good friend Jill took them for us and she did a wonderful job of capturing the kids personalities!  We went out to Shawnee Mission Park and got some great pictures!  Thank you so much Jill!!!!

Pumpkin Carving!!!

This Halloween was quite a bit different than last year! Benjamin was really into pumpkins and costumes and Samantha was much more interested in all the activities. The other night we carved pumpkins and both kiddos helped clean the insides out and both loved it!  Here are a few pictures!

The Most Magical Place On Earth....Disney World!!!

We made the treck down to Florida in mid-July.  We got a little nervous the night before we were leaving because Benjamin had spiked a terrible fever and we had no idea what was going on.  He ended up with a little flu bug and woke up the morning of the flight perfect!  We were all relieved and we headed off to Orlando.  Luke won a trip for the family through work and we are all so grateful for this experience!  We took the kids to Disney World one of the days down there.  I had never been before, so it was just as exciting for me as it was for the kids.  Benjamin was absolutely mesmerized that these characters were "real"!  To see the look on his face was what the entire trip was about.  Samantha was intrigued, but had absolutely no idea what was going on.  We stayed on Universal Studios' property so we went over to the City Walk and saw lots of really cool stuff the other days we were down there.  Benjamin had a blast in the water fountains.  Overall the trip was incredible!  Mom and dad were a little exhausted, but it was all well worth it.  Here are a bunch of pics from the trip!
