Trunk or Treat

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Yea, I love Halloween! Minus the whole devil worshiping of course. I love dressing up in silly costumes, I love spooky hunted houses, I love pumpkins, I love carving pumpkins, I love pumpkin pie, I love taking little kids trick or treating, and I LOVE getting free candy!!

And now I have my own little girl to dress up.

Here is my Princes Samantha

I made the biggest bow possible complete with curly q's and pink fluffy feathers. I also made her a tutu with little sparkles.... so precious.

Someone found the toy bag...

Thanks to our friend Phil, Dusty now has a plaid shirt that's the exact match to a pair of plaid shorts. So of course he had to wear them together, now thats classy.
This is my Bumpit. I secretly wanted to try a Bumpit and Halloween was the perfect excuse.

Sam is supper excited! I LOVE this girl

Here is Samantha and her friend Cosette. Here's how their conversation went:
Cosette: Ooo I like your tutu, can I touch it?

Samantha: You can touch but don't eat it.
Cosette: Mmm, I bet it tastes yummy.

Samantha: Alright, that's enough. Now back off, stop licking my tutu

Samantha: I said NO, Don't eat my tutu. Stop! Now you're eating my hand

Cosette: Mmmm Tutu yummy
Samantha: Mom, she knocked me over , and she's still eating me!

Samantha: I don't think we can be friends anymore.

And now we see where Cosette gets her aggressive behavior from.

Back to the Trunk or Treat: Dusty won 3rd Place for our Chillie, that's right, Dusty made it, and it was oh-so yummy!
He also got an award for best ice cream, he made Pumpkin ice cream... YUM

Our sweet family

This photo is just to demonstrate Dallon's fantastic photography skills. I highly recomend him.

I love my Bumpit... And I LOVE my little girl even more! She is the perfect princes.

Free Fries

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Finally, something I love about Grand Forks:

The 44th Annual Potato Bowl

Who wants yummy fries?........ You know I do

Something Grand Forks can be proud of....

The World's Largest Fry Feed

4,680 Fries
113 Gallons of Ketchup

10,000 people (yes North Dakota has that many people)

Cold, but definitely worth it

The Piersons enjoying their fries.

At least McKenzie is, not sure about Dallin?

After, we went to the home of the world's BEST french fry..... McDonalds

Samantha even tried some fries.

I think she likes them.

Don't you wish your baby was as smart as mine?

Check out my supper smart Baby Girl... she's crawling!

The things she'll do for a TV remote.

She started walrus scooting last week but gave me no time to post about that before she started crawling tonight!

I'm SO proud of her! She seems WAY to little to be crawling already, seriously, this girl is awesome!

Boys Are Icky

Thursday October 15, 2009

Thats it, my child is a bully. Yesterday we had a visitor and lets just say Samantha was not on her best behavior. I have no idea where she learned all this naughty behavior. I promise Dusty and I don't beat each other up. Sorry Heather :)

Cullen looking all innocent and sweet... he has No idea

She starts out nice

And this is where it begins...
Sam = Not Happy

She goes in for the kill

First the pushing
She knows this is Cullen's weak point, he can't hold himself up yet

Attack Round Two

The hair pulling, after all he has more than she does

The biting

More biting

And finally she makes him cry.
Cullen = Beat up

I finally separated them. She spent the rest of the time hiding in the corner.

The worst part is poor Cullen isn't the first baby she has assaulted.
What am I gonna do with this girl?

Sitting Pretty

Monday, October 12, 2009

Look who learned to sit all on her own....


I know there are pillows behind her, but don't be fooled, she's sitting all by herself. The pillows are merely for Emotional Support. We've had several head whackings in the process of learning to sit. She needed the pillows as a confidence boost while mama took pictures :) But she can do it all on her own.

She loves her jungle gym. I couldn't resist posting this picture too.

She's almost 6 Months!!! Can someone PLEASE tell my little girl to stop growning so fast?

That’s right, I went, I saw Britney and I sang along (who wouldn’t?). And it as FREAKING AWESOME!

Stop pretending like you’re too cool for Britney. Deep down everyone has a Britney Crush. Some of us just aren’t afraid to show it.

This is the stage from where we sat – pretty close, but then it’s the Alerus Center. Do they even have a nose bleed section? No. (In case you didn’t know the answer to that question.)

A little pole dancing...

The stage was too big so Britney rode around in this cart...

Apparently Grand Forks can’t handle the sexiness of Britney. She had to tone down her performance for us. Guess that didn’t include her wardrobe, she still danced around in lasira, fine by me, you shake it Britney!

Even though our seats where fairly close my neighbor had to use her binoculars, seriously, get some glasses, I did. Maybe she was trying to make eye contact with Britney? She didn’t appreciate my picture taking.
Britney's big floating umbrella. Don't worry it didn't rain, but she sang us a song in it.
Love the sparkle bra.
Look at the abbs on those dancers, now I could do my laundry on that! HOT!
And Finally, US...
Best concert EVER!!
