I was a Mommy of TWO TODDLERS this week!

I had the opportunity to make a little extra money and babysit an adorable 20 month old. His name is Micah, and his parents are friends of ours. Micah's regular babysitter went out of town this week. Let me just say it was such a fun, but challenging experience for me, since we had fun places to go, while all three of us had colds! When Brian was home from work, he helped out tons! Micah really loved playing with Brian. Hannah really enjoyed having a little play mate, since she's 16 months and they're really close in age. On Veteren's Day, we went to the parade on Mill Ave in Tempe and LOVED it! We also ended the week with going over to Brian's parent's house where they have goats, chickens, and lots of backyard to explore! I watched Micah all day, Monday through Thursday. What a treat, but I'm glad that we're back to just Hannah and I! :) I unfortunately don't have any photos. (So sad!)

Halloween 2009! And, looking back a year ago.

Hasn't Hannah changed? From an ASU Cheerleader last year to Tinkerbell this year! Amanda and Hannah went to Grandview Ward's Trunk-or-Treat, Shalimar's Trunk-or-Treat, Denny and Inge-Lise's Halloween Party, and visited grandparents. Brian was working that day :(, but we had fun. Halloween is a great time to show off the cute kids, right? :)

Lake Powell/Chris Comes Home!

A couple weeks ago we traveled to Lake Powell with Brian's family and it was a blast! Except that it was freezing and windy! No, it really was a lot of fun to get away and spend time with family members that we hadn't seen for a long time. Hannah had a great time and really bonded with her cousins, aunts and uncles. We were there for four days, and then went home to Chris' Homecoming from the Philippines!!! We were there Oct. 15th night at the airport to see him fresh off the plane. It was so amazing to finally see him after two years! Afterward, Brian and Amanda went over to Heather and John's for dinner with Nathan and Chris as well. We've had such a great time hearing Chris' stories and hanging out with him. We love our brother, Chris!
