Halloween eve

I wanted to start a blog so that my friends and family could be part of my adventures. First, I have to tell you I can't spell, and my writing skill are way behind. So give me a little slack, doing the best I can.
I am in Salt lake this week again visiting friends for the week. I really miss this place when I am not here. I have a hard time leaving the family that is so strong here. They are so amazing and supportive.
Anthony rented a bunch of DJ stuff for a photo shoot yesterday and we got lucky and he set it up here at the house. I am always surprised at how well the girls interact with my friends. They are some of the only kids within the group. Sometimes I think my friends are coming over more for them then for me. Koda really seems to seek out the one person that is quite and fun. Last night she attached herself to my friend Amie. Watching her talk about life with Amie was so funny. The two of them sat on the couch talked and talked. She seemed so content there with her. All the while Corbynn dance the night away with every man at the party. She is such a flirt. I see myself in her all the time. She is so out going and strong. The girls and I danced like rocks tars until about ten. I was really surprised with how well the girls went to bed last night. The whole house was thumping away and they slept like the dead.
It was really fun to get together out of no where last night. We hadn't really planned on going anywhere last night we were going just going to sit around and watch scary movies. Out of no where people just starting showing up and hanging out. It was nice to see most of my second family. Anthony played such a great set that everyone just seemed to dance the night away.
I LOVE these people and can't imagine my life without them.

Preparing for Halloween...

So, here I am back at Jareds house getting ready for Halloween. It is my non-families favorite time. We are going to take my girls trick or treating to all of our friends. I have been a parent for four Halloweens and this is the first time I have takent he girls trick or treating. There is a slight guilt for this. I feel as if I have missed out on at least two great years of dress up, freezing weather and a unholy amount of candy. It is odd to think this wasn't a priority before. Picking out costumes was such a fun experience of the personalities of my girls. As my mother and I walk through target the girls have a idea of what they want to be. Koday wants to be a princess and Corbynn thinks she would like to be a fairy. Suddenly Corbynn see's this hilarous riding dinorsar costume, and she just goes ga ga over it. She really wants it. I almost couldn't believe it and she kept to it. She is now going to be a riding dino and Koda true to form, a princess.

We got back to Salt Lake on Tuesday night spent the five hour drive with two girls sleeping and me singing bad 80 music. Luckily the girls didn't wake up once from the freeway to the turn into the house. It made for a silient drive. Made it back in almost record time to Anthony sitting in the drive way ready to help me unload to sleeping girls.

It is really hard to think that I might not see them dressed up for another halloween. I don't really believe it yet.
