The Planetarium

On Saturday we took the kids down to the gateway with Kelly's twin sister Becky, her husband Marcus and their cute little girl Katana. Gammy (Kelly's Mom) went with us as well. It was great to spend some time with the family. It was so much fun, we went to the 3-D movie Fly me to the Moon. It was really cute to see the little kids reaching out and trying to touch the images and they came towards them. Then the kids looked at all the displays and fun activities you can do in there. Their favorite part was walking on the moon! I love days like that where you have nothing else to think about but having fun with the kids.

Our Not Too Scary Halloween!!!

So Halloween has come and gone and we had a great time. Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, not because we like the scary part but because we love the costumes. We have had some fun doing a family movie theme costume for the past couple years. Last year we did the Wizard of Oz and this year we did Peter Pan. Aiden was our handsome little Peter Pan and Ella our precious little TinkerBell, while Abby was a beautiful Silvermist (she is Tinker Bells blue fairy friend from the new Tinker Bell movie), Dad was the big mean Captain Hook, and Mom was Wendy Darling. All the kids got a chance to wear their costumes for a school program on the 30th and they sang so cute. We also got to go to the pumpkin patch and get some pumpkins for carving and painting. But of course the best part was trick-or-treating, Kelly has so much fun taking the kids around you'd think he was still a kid.
