In honor of Reese's new "Rapunzel" dress, we watched Disney's Tangled today.  Since then Reese has kept telling me about her hair.  How it's like Rapunzel's.  She's blond now but when she's old enough it will turn brown like Rapunzel.  And even though it's a little short now it's getting longer and soon she'll have very long hair.

PS, I put our car seats back in the car today.  I hate car seats so much.

Putting Up The Christmas Tree

We put up the Christmas tree for family night the Monday after Thanksgiving this year.  Rather than pull out our fragile ornaments from storage, we decided to make some paper trimmings.

Reese and I each colored an angel and then we glued them back-to-back on a paper cone.  All day, Reese couldn't stop talking about the angel she was going to put on the tree when Daddy came home and we could start.

My side of the angel,

Then we colored some paper strips and made a chain to wrap around the tree.

Reese was pretty proud of the finished product.  Liam refused to get in the picture because he was upseat that we glued his chain to the main one.  And that we wouldn't let him play with the glue stick anymore.

We didn't get Reese a pretzel while we were at the mall the other day, so I promised we'd make them at home.  She liked that Idea.

Meanwhile, Liam was doing what he does best: making mischief. 

sideways video.

Play Time

Sometimes when Reese is doing something that she thinks is interesting she will tell me to get the camera and take a picture.  Good think she thinks of it or I miss recording all sorts of fun.

This game is called "throw all the laundry on the floor so we can play with the basket"

She was so proud of this tower, though she makes pretty good towers all the time.

And, of course, she has to strike a pose with it.

Blue fairy wings and a blue skirt often results in me getting a pretend carriage, dress and glass slippers.

And Liam is affectionately her "pet" named Lion.

First snow of this winter!  Reese has been saying for the past few weeks that she wants to make a snow angel.  When her hands touched the snow she changed her mind in a hurry.  I guess we need to get some gloves.  The whole outing lasted approx. 5 minutes.

While I Was Posting

While I was getting some blog posts up, Liam came up to me with the Mr. Potato Head bucket on his head  When he accidentally got the label part in front of his face so he couldn't see he began using it to play peek-a-boo.

Then Reese came up with the Mr. Potato Head Darth Vader mask in her mouth and began breathing heavily. I don't know if you can hear it in the video but that was the goal.  

Then I realized it's kind of silly that Liam likes wearing shoes so much he asks me to put them on even when he's in his footie jammies.


I don't have any pictures of the kids trick-or-treating.  But I do have pictures from when we got home!  Liam is the only one that threw off the costume hat and dug in to the cany.  The rest of us were playing around with some plastic bloodshot eyes that they got while out.  Reese did eventually pic a treat to eat before bed.

And here's a picture on the night of the ward trunk-or-treat.  It was also the celebration dinner for Grandpa's Birthday, so we came home to come cousins who had been dropped off for us to spend time with while Grandpa and his sons (and wives) went out.   Hyrum and Heather made us some awesome balloon stuff.
