What else to do at the crack of dawn?

Thanks to lovely Daylight Savings, it is 5:45 and I have already been up for an hour. The girls are happy and awake and crawling around playing while the rest of the world is celebrating an extra hour of sleep. Well, good for you, world. For some of us, it just means we get one more hour we have to somehow stay awake until church at one. Awesome. So, since I'm awake and so happy and chipper, I thought I'd better post some Halloween pics! I wish I could say that Halloween went by in a flash--but it was a really long day! After running around from one place to the next, I had to crash at 9:30. No late night haunting for this girl. But good times were had by all, so it was totally worth it. (Speaking of crashing, I am so going back to bed right now)


Halloween Party at the Law School (it was a rager--I ate four frosted sugar cookies--I just kept going back, saying they were for my kids--oops!)


Mila (Winnie Witch) and the director of her Halloween play, "A School for Scaring"


Mila at her class party


Quite the motley crew: a Ninja, Scooby, Little Bo Peep, and Batgirl (Scooby's sad because he wants more Tootsie Rolls)


Who knew that 2 roomates at BYU could have 7 kids between them in 10 years?


Sweet Sheep


Little Bo Peep found her sheep, and one was a little grumpy


The whole gang

Hey! No worries...it was 6am when I was awoken by my crew---joy. Ok, seriously, can the kids get any cuter??? Love all the girl's outfits especially! Have a good m(long)day!

This was the first time in 8 years that we've taken advantage of that extra hour. The trick (which doesn't work on babies) is keeping the kids up super late the night before! Woohoo!

Yeah, we had three kids in our bed by 6:30 am. Lovely. Those Halloween costumes are awesome! Where did you get the Bo Peep and Sheep?

Sheep--Shopko, in August, $10 a pop. Just happened to be browsing through, Halloween costumes were on sale (huh? in August?)so Mila and I hatched our plan. Both of them are now in the trash with broken zippers and I figured it would cost more than they were worth to fix the zippers! We got a lot of use out of them!

Bo Peep--Ebay, where I get all my costumes usually--people sell them after their kids wear them once so you're not paying $50 for it new.

Just a warning: If you ever need a Scooby-Doo, call me and I will lend it to you, because there was some unbelievable competition for that guy--he is popular!

Oh. Mygosh. Yes. Blake and Nathan were jumping on my bed at 5:15 this morning. AAAAHHHHH!

And your kids are so stinking cute. I saw Mila and Ethan, but I never saw your sweet little sheep in their costumes. SO CUTE!!!

Wow, I can't believe that I haven't talked to you since the time change! You are really getting back into this blogging thing---I'm so jealous!

Last week was my hell week, though, for the show, and this weekend is the play--and you are coming to see me---it makes me smile!!! And we get to see Sting and that makes me wicked happy!!!
Anywho---I am going to make it my new goal of the new year to blog at least once a week---I just HAVE to try to keep up with the Jones's---er, ah,---the Smiths'!
By the way---the Halloween pictures were divine... I don't have any of Aydan, because my camera broke---what a loser...

Hailey-you make me laugh. "It's funny because it's true." I had the same day on Sunday except our church starts at 1:30. Your kiddos look so cute, I love Halloween.
