Taylor had a lot going on at work and decided to stay home, so my mom came in his stead. She looked so cute all decked out in her halloween attire!
My sister made all the kids matching mickey mouse shirts that they sported one day- so cute!
All in all, it was a fabulous trip. The kids loved it, the crowds were down, and the weather was beautiful. Disneyland is a good alternative when you're in a pinch, but I am still very biased towards DisneyWorld. There is no comparison!

My mom and mother-in-law came out to support us!
These are the aftershots, but they don't do justice to the amount of mud that was caked to my body!

We ate at Ivar's pretty much every day (at least once)! This is Taylor, my brother Stephen, and my brother-in-law Brian just hanging out after enjoying some Clam Chowder.
We took the ferry over to Bainbridge and Bremmerton Islands to pick blackberries and go to the blackberry festival. Definitely a highlight of the trip! It is GORGEOUS over there!
Taylor got all into the picking! He rolled up his pants and plowed through the bushes to get the "better berries"!

Saturday we went to hike some cave, but it was a little too steep and rocky for my boys. Luckily our friend Carrie was there to help Talmage, because I was stuck at the top holding Barrett, who was cold and wet and cranky!
And then poor Taylor hit his head on one of the rocks above him which knocked him out. Other than a big gash on his head, he was ok!Even with the mud, and rain, and accidents, and cranky kids, we managed to have a great time. We are so lucky to have such great family and friends to share our lives with!

In Hashimoto's disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, your immune system attacks your thyroid gland. The resulting inflammation often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism). Hashimoto's disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States.

People keep telling me that I need to have another baby since Barrett is 2, but instead of having one, we are going to try to adopt our next one (hopefully an older baby or one with special needs). We were officially certified a few days ago, so we are excited to see what happens!!
It was Barrett's first "0fficial" haircut, and I was sad to see all of his blonde hair go, but he looks so stinkin' cute! I don't know why I waited so long to cut it!

This is my sister, Sarah, and I huddled under one umbrella with our very fashionable ponchos
And here's to Talmage, who also graduated from Preschool. He loved Mrs. McClure's preschool and will miss her and all the friends he made there. He is so smart and we love having him as part of our family. Way to go Talmage!!

This was my attempt at being crafty last week. I signed up to bring a dessert for the program, and my sister gave me this idea for cupcakes. They were supposed to look like daisies. They didn't turn out as cute as I'd hoped... but considering how much I hate to cook, at least I made the effort!!

My sister had her baby. OK, this isn't her first baby, but it is her first boy (so it counts!) He is so stinkin' adorable!
Talmage and Barrett had a friend sleepover for the first time. Actually its their cousin Lincoln who is visiting from Florida. His mom is sick so he came to stay the night. We played games, decorated cupcakes, and had a splashin' good time in the tub!
And finally, I attempted my first dress for....ME!!! I wore it to church and was so nervous that it would fall apart on me, but it held strong. I can't wait to try another one!
