We're Ready!!!!!!!

We're so ready for the premier of New Moon. Alexa and I will be going to the midnight showing this Thursday. We got our tickets about two months ago and have both reread the book:

We've got our New Moon gear, Alexa got an official T-shirt and I have a special Twilight watch and necklace:

And we will attempt to sell suckers as fundraising for Alexa's trip:

So as I said, we are totally ready to see this movie!
And, go team Jacob!

Birthday Fun

Celeste just turned 12 years old. It is hard to believe that our little girl is almost a teenager! We spent Sunday celebrating her birthday. We started out in downtown Tempe to walk around and enjoy the weather. Of course I had to do a photo shoot while we were there. Here are 2 of my favorites:

While downtown we went to Coldstone for a birthday treat:

We finished our night by going to dinner at Logans Roadhouse. That was a good time, and another rare instance that all 6 of us were together. These days that is a gift in itself. Happy Birthday girlie!

Every Halloween my family and I help do a cake walk at the Tempe Halloween Festival. It is an awesome event put on by the city as an alternative to trick or treating. It also provides a fundraising opportunity as all of the booths are run by non profit organizations. This was our La Leche League group's 12 time doing the cake walk there. We really enjoy it. This year Alexa ran a booth for her P2P trip and made $113.00. Goooo Alexa!!! I was so busy the whole night that I did not get any pictures of our booths or the event, but here are the little girls in their costumes {they are the only ones that dress up anymore :-( }.
Sophie was a zombie. Yes that's her real hair. We love making our own costumes from items we find at the Goodwill. Sophie's dress was Celeste's from her vampire costume two years ago. Alexa provided the hair and makeup:

Celeste also got her dress at the Goodwill and went as a masquerade lady. She made the mask herself:
