Halloween...My Three Bugs

My girls were real troopers in wearing costumes we already had. Not only did they wear costumes we had, but they agreed to my plan of having them all be bugs. Jason brought out his artistic side with his creative face painting abilities.

Alese is THREE!!!

Oh my sweet Alese, how I wish I could slow this time down. Even though you are no longer a baby, I am going to try and keep you as young as possible for as long as I can. I wish you would remind me when I get too busy and forget to enjoy all life's little celebrations
that this time will be gone before I know it.
This picture shows that there is no denying that these three are sisters!
Alese has the greatest expressions.
This is her favorite pose for a photo op.

Pumpkin Carving Party...The Beginning of an Annual Event

After years of fun at an annual pumpkin carving party at the Bredbergs
in Alaska, we decided to start our own annual event in Washington.
Some of the final results.
Erin and Cole Williams.
Avery and Mike Stark.
Kylie and Kinley (a super cute little pumpkin) Gaard.
Michael, Thorin and Tiffany Nixon.
Rachel, Ben, Brooklyn, and Josie Showalter.
Thank you everyone for a fun night of good food, wonderful friends and messy orange fingers!

Pumpkin Picking 2010

Second annual pumpkin picking!

Some face painting and scarecrows!


Once again, got a picture of the two of us because I held out the camera!
Totally worth it to capture the love of my life!

Hannah's perfect pumpkin!

The excitement of being surrounded by massive rows of pumpkins makes it very difficult to get them to pause and let me capture the moment!
Alese is looking for the perfect ONE!

The Praying Mantis

We don't have bugs like this in Alaska! Mayah is my scientist and little discoverer. Last Praying Mantis she held pinched her so this one made her just a hair nervous. It tried to climb up her back and she wasn't too excited about that. She is currently keeping another Praying Mantis and its name is Bugsy!

WA Friends...The Starks

Hannah, Mayah, Avery, Peyton, and Alese

Mayah and Avery, Best Buds

Mike was the one to give Alese her nickname of Alese the Beast!!!

My friend and running partner April! She keeps me moving!
