Halloween pics, finally!

We are in the middle of renovating our Kitchen and Hall Bath!!! (hope you enjoy it at Christmas-mom, Fred, and Dustin) and I've been planning our next big ward event, the Christmas Party...... so I've been a little busy.

But I promised some Halloween pics.......

Have a link to flicker for our Halloween pictures that my friend Katherine took. For some reason they wouldn't show up when I saved them to my computer. Oh well just click on the links to see the photos.....

Me as the Octomom! Complete with huge lips, long flowing hair, Juicy Sweatsuit, and 3 babies in my baby bjorn and 5 in the stroller!

Here's Jamie as exercise guroo Tony Little
doesn't he look just like the real deal?

Zac wanted to be a ghost, but was having a hard time seeing cuz his eye holes kept moving around, so I pinned them in place, and he ended up looking like a muslim woman!http://www.flickr.com/photos/jellypoptography/4131441330/in/set-72157622690846771/


Landon was Dirk Nowenski or a "basketball boy" if you asked him. He ate more cotton candy, popcorn, cupcakes, and lollypops that day than he's every had in his whole life!!http://www.flickr.com/photos/jellypoptography/4130732507/in/set-72157622690846771/

there it is..... sorry to make you click on links. gotta get back to my construction zone, I mean house!

some new family pics

We had a great Halloween. I was in charge of our wards Halloween carnival/trunk or treat and totally forgot my camera! Katherine, thank goodness, took a bunch of pics, so I'll post some when I get them from her. I was the Octomom.... Jamie was Tony Little (he does the excersize infomercials).... and Zac was a ghost..... and Landon was Dirk Nowenski. So until then..... Here's some other pics......

Took family pics recently with Katherine

Destin is heaven on earth!!! (Summer update pt 3)

Jamie's back at school and life has a "real" rutine now. Summer seemed like it went by pretty fast. Too bad. I am excited for the melting heat to turn into fall breezes. (usally doesn't happen in Dallas till like November though!)

anyway... here's the last hoorah of our summer... our trip to Destin, Florida with Jamie's family!

The gorgeous beach house Jim and Debbie rented for us all.
aproperately named "Southern Charm"
the whole gang
transportation to the beach
Zac's favorite swimming buddy- "papa"



Out for lunch at "Dewey's" on the bay

A HUGE JELLYFISH
Kristin took pics of while snorkling. I'm glad I didn't see this till we got home or I might not have gotten back in the water!!!
The kids loved hanging out with cousin Ella!
and each other too!
they also had some fun with their mommy and daddy


Jamie dug up this crab while digging a whole for himself to get burried in....

and he still decided to get burried!!!
The kids loved it!
Zac kept pouring sand on Jamie's head. It was great!

The beach makes you HUNGRY!

and THIRSTY!
and CRANKY!
and DIRTY!
but we LOVED IT!

LOVED IT!
LOVED IT!
The last day we went to Bass Pro shop to see the big aquairium while Jim and Debbie took Kristin, Jeff, and Ella to the airport.
we also found a cute play area outside
