Trick or treats!! Oh and our Disneyland trip too!!

We have been SO busy these past couple days...I feel like I haven't had time to update my blog!
I will keep this post short and let the pictures speak for themselves.
Tonight we went Trick or Treating with our friends and of course the kids had a lot of fun (and Anaïs slept through it all)! I am so glad Halloween is over though.
Also, we got back from our Disneyland trip yesterday. Sam had so much fun there! The first night we went to California Adventures for a Halloween event and then we spent the following day at Disneyland. Sam's favorite ride was Jungle Cruise and she also loved getting her pictures taken with the Princesses!

Here are some pictures from tonight of the kids Trick or Treating

Here are some pictures of our Disneyland trip.

Last night, we went out to dinner with some friends and also saw the show Love at the Mirage. Jeff and I both love the Beatles, so we really enjoyed the show. I would recommend it to anyone!!Here we are right before the show.

Here are a couple pictures from the restaurant. We ate at Stack at the Mirage and the food was awesome!!!

We met the Mallinson family!

Last night we had the pleasure to meet the Mallinson family! We had a great time!
We had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack, it's a perfect place to go eat with the kids.
I want to thank Mike and Cherylle for taking the time to come and meet us. Evan and Caitlin are even cuter in real life!

For those of you out there who have a baby, you know what a Boppy is! It's a doughnut shaped pillow that babies can use to sit up or be on their tummy. Anaïs loves hers!

Fall Festival at Sam's school

Last night was the annual Fall Festival at Sam's school. It was great, Sam had tons of fun. The kids got to wear their Halloween costumes and there were lots of fun activities and food. We got there and ate hot dogs. If you know Sam and Jeff then you know they LOVE hot dogs!! After that Sam played non-stop with her friends the whole night. Jeff and I are so happy that she goes to this school...even though it is expensive it is well worth it! Also, everyone there knows Anaïs and her story so we feel very comfortable sending her there when she'll be ready for preschool. All the teachers are great!

I had to get pictures of the girls before we left because I knew that Sam would be running around the rest of the evening.

Sam posing with her good friend Michaela.

Each class made an artistic display and displayed it for the entire school to see. Here is what Sam's class made. It's a little wheel with the kids' and the teachers' pictures, it was so cute! Here is can't miss her with her red hair!
Sam having fun potato sack racing!

Getting a fun tattoo...she loves tattoos!

Sam and her friends Michaela and Fallon

Sam and her friend Addie. This was towards the end of the evening, she was getting tired.

Little Anaïs was dancing too! This is such a fun picture.
