Halloween Fun!

Tonight was our annual pumpkin carving at Grandma and Grandpa Deti's house. We were without Hayley on this evening because she went to a party instead. We missed her, but she had a blast at her friend Casey's house! Luke decided to write a word (BEWARE!) on his pumpkin this year! It turned out really cool and this was the first year that he actually did most of the carving and gutting by himself!

Group shot of the cousins with their Jack-o-Lanterns: Cody, Luke, Tatum, Ashlie, and Dylan.

Group shot of some of the kids at the party that Hayley attended. All of the kids are her 6th grade classmates. It's hard to see Hayley's costume, but we basically just came up with it on our own. She named herself 'The Alien Witch'. We just pieced it together and had fun doing it. Basically her shirt and headband has neon googly eyes adhered all over it. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get a better shot of it... she was cute in it. :)

My yummy sugar cookies that I made for Luke's class party!

Fall Soccer!

Luke has been off and running with Fall Soccer for the past month. He has been doing really well and he has improved dramatically! Not sure if it's because of the twice a week practices or the fact that we're bribing him with $2 per game!

The weather has cooperated for all of the games so far which makes me so happy... I get to practice action shots with my camera! Luke's team, The Tornadoes, is awesome. He's playing with four of his good friends from his Cub Scout Den which always makes things more fun!

Super cute soccer stud...

Hayley's Birthweek!

This was an extremely busy week! When did the birthday become the weeklong celebration?? First we had the family party on Tuesday evening (October 6th).... Hayley's cousin Dylan celebrated his 3rd birthday the night before Hayley's 'official' birthday, so we got together with everyone and had dinner and birthday cakes!

Hayley got this totally cute Domo cap from her BFF, Savannah... so cute!

Wednesday, October 7th was Hayley's actual birthday... Can't believe she's already twelve! She's officially a TWEEN and she's loving every second of it! We took her out for a surprise birthday dinner to a place called Blue C Sushi. All of the dishes are color coded (this determines the price of the dish) and they go around the restaurant on a conveyer belt. You simply grab the dish(es) that look appealing to you and the waitress tallies up your bill by looking at the stack of plates left on your table. As you can see, we really enjoyed ourselves! Hayley's favorite dish was the shrimp, rice, and seaweed sushi.
Luke's favorite dish was the squid!

super cute shirt from Jilli!

Looks like we enjoyed ourselves....

The final birthday celebration for the week was her 'Friends' party. She and 7 of her friends went bowling at this cute little bowling alley in Tacoma called Chalet Bowl. After bowling, she had a slumber party and a few of the girls pulled an 'all-nighter'. A great time was had by all! Did I mention how sick I am of baking cakes and cupcakes! I think the #12 cake was about the sixth or seventh one that I did during this week!

Hayley's bowling technique is very unique!

Hayley still loves her Club Penguin!
