Emma is 5!

Emma turned five on November 13.  We celebrated with a big family party.

She had a friend party.  All her friends dressed as princesses.

Princesses frosting "glass slipper" cookies.

A new birthday outfit.


Mason & his friend Noah heading out for some loot.  We had a perfect night for trick-or-treating.

The girls heading out.  Sarah went out with Allie & Addison.  They were going to stay out a long time but got too tired.

Mitchell was a cute horse.  He shed his costume before trick-or-treating was over.

Counting & sorting the loot.

The kids decided it would be fun to bob for apples.  We did it the clean way, in individual bowls!

Cold Sand Dunes

We braved the Sand Dunes with Todd's family.  We went the weekend right before Halloween.  It was COLD!!!  We were grateful for a furnace in our trailer!

Mason would ride every chance he got.

The kids did some sand sledding.

Emma had a short ride.

A big sand pit "spa"

Aunt Jen had brought her dog Koda with her from Alaska.  Mason, who used to be terrified of dogs, loved him!

Mitchell was a bit worn out & every inch of him was covered with sand!
We had a great weekend!  I think we brought half of Little Sahara home with us in our pockets & shoes.
