Another catch up...

Alright so lets start back in October right before Halloween, Trunk or Treat, and Halloween night.

Grandma Crockett got the girls a coloring house, to this day they are still plucking away at the coloring.

Taylor got his massage table to start practicing his OPP(I have no idea what that stands for) and I get to usually be the person he practices on and I don't mind one bit!

Our Christmas tree, weeeee we love Christmas!

Lots of coloring in this house!

Eliza got really sick again, this time is wasn't croup but it triggered the no breathing thing again.  So we are now the owners of a nebulizer.  They think she has asthma, but I am praying thats not the case.

Madilyn's Preschool had a field trip to the fire station.  They got to spray the hose, and ride in the fire truck!!

Madilyn's preschool class, as you can tell she is a little out numbered.  There is one other little girl but unfortunately she was home sick.

Eliza got to come along too!

Madilyn experimenting with drawing teeth, when Taylor saw it he asked me, "Has she been watching nightmare before christmas?" Hhaha oh goodness.

For those of you that didn't already know, we are moving back to paradise in July.  So my mom was kind enough to watch the girls for us for a whole week while Taylor and I went to relax/scope out areas in Kapolei over Thanksgiving.

Best Thai food EVER! (can't say I have been to a lot of thai places, but I hear that from all those who love Thai that this is the best) This guy use to just own a food truck now he has a full blown establishment!

Sunset at Turtle Bay

We got to be real live tourist while we were there and even went to Pearl Harbor since Taylor had never been.  It has changed a little since I was here 6 years ago, but it has the same stillness and reverence as when I was here last.  Very amazing place.

USS Arizona Memorial

The USS Arizona ship under water, a tomb for over a thousand soldiers.  They said I think 8 men who served on this ship have to option to have their bodies placed inside after they pass on.  They said all the remaining survivors have done so, and the rest plan on having it done as well.

They said it still leaks about a quart of oil a day.  Crazy.  You can see the oil on the water.

One of the survivors, paying his respects at the wall of all those who died on this ship.  It was a very amazing experience to watch.

OnoYo, and I don't forget our delicious yogurt land that we drove many miles to get.

The lighthouse hike. It was a beautiful day.  Unfortunately the only picture we have of taylor and I is on his phone. Oh well.

Pali Lookout.  For some odd reason there were thousand and thousand of bees dead and alive all over the place. Super weird because it is SO windy up there.

They were shooting hunger games while we were there at Turtle Bay, so naturally I sat around a watched like a crazy waiting for something to happen.  But finally I got to see Katniss coming out of her Pod.  Woo Hoo.  So the producer was guarding the set, and I got out my camera to take a picture and he got real mad at me.  But since its a public beach he can't actually stop people from taking pics.  But I was scared of the guy after that, not to mention he was watching me like a hawk.  But a friend of mine got some pictures while he wasn't looking.  So there you go, acting at its finest.

there she is on the paddle board heading out.

So since Hawaii we have been doing lots of Christmas crafts, and having fun!

Their first Krispy Kremes. SO GOOD!!

Eliza drew her first stick figure, proud mom right here.

Made Christmas ornaments

And My big girl had her first dance recital.  I was SO impressed with how well she did.  I thought she might get on the stage and freeze once she saw all those people.  But it didn't even faze her, she was amazing!!

HAHA oh dear. 

Her buddy Ashlynn, after recital.

The beaner.

Sitting reindeer.

Finished with some jumping around!

Fall Happenings

So here are a few pictures to sum up what we have been doing this fall.  The weather is FINALLY starting to cool off, I think we are in the low 90s now.  

So Madilyn had fall break from Preschool and dance so we decided to go to grandmas house in Prescott.  They have a cousin named Bentley that lives out there too, and they always enjoy playing with her.  So here they are watching a movie in the laundry room.

This is Goldwater lake, its a beautiful place.  I want to go camping there next summer.


We also went mini golfing, and this is what eliza did most of the time, or she would just take her ball and throw it down the "tunnels" or just the plain old hole.

Madilyn on the other hand took golfing a little more serious and actually worked on hitting the ball in.  This hole she actually got a hole in one!

We also discovered that all my old beanie babies and my brothers were in storage at my moms house.  Needless to say, I think they were a hit.  We had like 20 or more together, so they were seriously in heaven.  We played lots of "vet"

My mom sent us home with cupcakes, and all the cute chocolate moldings she made to put on top.  So we decorated them, and the girls loved it!

Taylor even got into the spirit!

Madilyn practicing some new faces...

Taylors school was having founders day, so they had tons of blow up stuff and cotton candy of course. It was a lot of fun.

Ok, so I put a bunch of Madilyn skateboarding because she is turning into such a goof and loves to practice making new faces!









I will have you know that she made everyone of those faces and hand motions herself without any promptings at all.  What a goof!

WE had to hit up the farm of course, unfortunately I could't get a good shot of the kids on this because I was riding with Eliza and Madilyn insisted on the front.

Giant blow up pillow, always a hit.


Ok, so this video didn't work...waaa waaaa


They loved practicing miking the cow, especially Madilyn.



Corn maze. we were having a great time when I walk past and I hear Madilyn scream there is a spider.  I look up and there is a massive web with a HUGE spider in it  I didn't really enjoy it much after that because I was constantly in fear of running strait into a spider.



Well there we have it! Life is good! By the way, my camera is broken so all i have is my iPhone camera.  I am grateful for it, but so so sad about my camera.  So if anyone has any great tips or know any good companies that fix canon cameras that would be wonderful!
