Thanksgiving and more...

For Thanksgiving we drove out to Arizona to spend it with Byron's brother Curtis and his family. It was a lot of fun, we got to go to the Zoo. They both loved seeing all the animals.
The Car ride to AZ was great, we made it in 15 hours. Both kids did great. Thank goodness for DVD players

Cadance and Kayla played like sisters, either they were fighting or best friends. They were so fun to watch!!
They played in Curtis' playpen with everyone was making Thanksgiving dinner.
So Michelle and her family always go out on Black Friday so I joined them. We planned out everything the night before and left at 10:30 PM!!! We shopped all night/ waited out in the cold, until 5:45 AM. It was a long night but a lot of fun. I saved a lot of money and got 98% of my Christmas shopping done. I felt bad because we left Friday night so Byron had to drive almost the whole night since I did not get any sleep the night before.
All in All a great trip!! Now back to the real world

For Halloween Kayla was Dorthy and Curtis was the lion from the Wizard of OZ. It was hard getting pictures together but I did get some of them playing in dirt together, running and playing together. Curtis never said Trick or Treat but he sure knew how to walk up to people and hold out his container. Kayla remembered from last year instantly and said trick or treat and thank you. The next morning she woke up and said "We go trick or treating". She wanted more candy, cause she has a mean mommy that will not let her eat more than one piece at a time.
