So here's the gang on Splash mountain. Front to back there is Ashlynn, Brian, Briggs, Chelsea, (Brookes sister) and Joe. The kids really impressed us this time around and Disneyland by going on alot of the big rides. They went on all of the mountain rides - Splash, Thunder and Space (minus the Materhorn), Star tours, haunted mansion, soarin', tower of terror and grizzley run.
We had to buy this picture because of the look on Briggs's face. I like to think what was goin through his mind. Incidentally, they both really like Splash mountain.


Here's the most recent:

Had a great time at Disneyland with the Brundages. Needless to say, 8 kids and 5 adults and 3 days at the big D left me with no voice which eventually turned into a case of bronchitis. This picture only has 6 of the 8 kids in it.

Halloween was fun. Briggs celebrated with a different costume for every event: Buzz lightyear for church trunk or treat, superman for preschool and a knight for Halloween night. We had some friends join us for trick or treating in our neighborhood. Ashlynn wore her tap dance costume and dubbed herself a polka-dot princess (she was quite annoyed whenever someone couldn't guess what she was!) Ty appropriately donned a devil costume.

Ty has prompted us to arm the house at a whole new level of child proofing. We have al sorts of gadgets at the house. Every time the babysitter comes over, I have to introduce her to a new locking device. The garbage disposal in the island sink is now unplugged because he climbed on the counter and turned it on. Momma reached right down and unplugged it. We will probably have to keep it like that until he registers for the draft. Oh well!

I think that's it for now.

Just a quick note that, yes, we are still here. Life has been a little busy to blog. I will add our trip to disneyland and halloween as soon as I get over this cold.
