Watch out everyone here they come! Logan is a cowboy, Christian is a cowboy, Gavyn is a death killer something or other, Jaidyn is War Machine (Iron Man 2), and Emmalee is a black cat the hisses and scratches you when she talks to you.
Halloween was super fun. We had such an eventful weekend! It seems almost like we just need a bit more time to actually recoup from it all! Oh well, when does anyone ever get the chance to catch up on sleep anyhow?
Gavyn was a scary killer guy, Jaidyn was War Machine (from Iron Man 2), and Emmalee was a black cat that hissed and scratched at you. They were all very cute when they went trick or treating. Although, I have to say it was sort of confusing since every time Emmalee left a house she would say, "Thank you! Happy Birthday!" We kept telling her to say Happy Halloween, but for some reason she liked to say happy birthday instead. The best thing about this year was that we did not need to bring a stroller, and nor did we end up carrying anyone! Woo hoo!!! Best Halloween EVER!!!!!!!!!
In Woodland Hills they have this really neat fair for the holidays. We took the kids the Friday before Halloween. It was really fun. There was a spooky corn maze that Andy, Logan, and Christian went in. No thank you, but I was so gracious as to pass in fear of being massacred by some crazy nut job hiding out in the corn field.
Instead I hung out with the cute little monsters that came with us. We had so much fun! We milked a fake cow, we panned for gold, and the two little boys went rock climbing! They did so good. I am seriously impressed. I mean I am so afraid of heights that I would have gotten two feet off the ground and froze with fear. But my little mountain goats made it to the top lickety split! Emmalee and I cheered them on from the sidelines.
Once Andy and the two more braver kids of mine were done with the maze, they had to also try their skills on the rock wall. They did just as good. Actually they all did excellent! It was so fun to just hang out and have fun for a change.

Like I am not busy enough, I started my own business! I have a website that you can check out my leis and other things on there. The website is http://www.comeoniwannaleiya.com/ I make custom leis for all occasions. Go and check out the pictures. I am going to expand it to gift baskets and a clothing line also. I am tinkering with a few names for the clothing line. So far it is between Lei Ya and Modess T. I am not sure which way I am going to go with the name yet. Lei Ya sort of goes with the Come On I Wanna Lei Ya name of my company. Plus I want to include a swimwear line. But I love the name Modess T Maybe I will just have two clothing lines, and see if either one of them take off!
This here is the dollor lei. This one has $50 in ones on it.
This lei is the plumeria lei with money butterflies on it. A great way to give cash, and not have to shove it in a card. Plus it makes it fun when they have to go and take the money off to spend it! lol
These are the bride and groom kukui nut money leis They look beautiful once they are on the couple!
And this is the super yummy 7lb. Jolly Rancher Lei! Heavy, but full of fun! I do it with other candies too. You just have to pick your favorite wrapped candy, and I will make it for you!
Go check my site out! It have even more stuff than you are seeing on this blog! http://www.comeoniwannaleiya.com/
I call them my three little piggies because they really do make such a mess around the house! I mean one minute everything is clean and vacuumed, and the next it looks like it was never picked up. But the other reason is because I like to tell them that story and have them actually be the little pigs. They really like it too. Just to see these little guys light up when they hear their names in a story is so worth everything.
So , I am home schooling all the kids this year. Yes, I am a little crazy, but at the same time, I figure why not add one more thing to my busy schedule! After all, isn't a mom suppose to do what she feels is best for her kids no matter what?
They all seem to really like the home school thing. I print out their schedules on Monday, and if they get it all done before Friday, then we get to go somewhere fun. Like tomorrow we are going to the movies!!!! I haven't seen Toy Story 3 yet, so off to the $3 theather we will go!
Gavyn smiling big for the camera!
Jaidyn looking at something in the grass!
I shot this picture while Andy, Logan, and Christian were waiting for CA Screaming to take off. You should see the one that he tried to get of me and the boys. All it had in the photo was the tracks. lol I think that the one I took came out way better! lol
Here are my little guys on the carousel at CA Adventure!
We couldn't get Emmalee to pose with her brothers and Santa. I guess the big red guy just scares the stuffin out of her. Honestly who can blame her, I mean seriously, can one man be that jolly all year long? I don't know, but the boys had no problem telling him exactly what they all wanted.
We did get her to pose by the tree though! So, this is about the best that we got for a group photo. It is so hard to get all 5 kids to actaully stand and smile normal all at the same time! They sure are a cute bunch though! I love them!
This year Emmalee turned 2 on February 12th. Boy is she really taking the word terrible 2 to heart! She is so great, but man does she know how to get her way! I am really hoping she will grow out of it all! We will see! Only time will tell!
Christian turned 9 on November 27th! Wow, 9!!!!! We had a little friend over that weekend, so that is her in the picture.
On March 18th Logan turned 11! I can hardly believe that Andy and I have an 11 year old! I have the gray hairs to prove it, and even though Andy does try to deny it, he is getting a little crop of grays himself. lol
Jaidyn turned 5 on May 13th! The great thing was it was Friday the 13th! That was fun! He wanted EVERYTHING Iron Man, so when his dad delivered, I think it sent him a wrong message. For some reason he seems to think now that if he wants it he gets it. I had to tell him the other day while leaving the store, that I am not going to buy him anything else until he stops asking for stuff everytime he goes to the store with me. That didn't go over to well, and he still hasn't stopped asking. I guess I can be proud since he is so persistant! lol
Also, Gavyn turned 7! Yes, 7! Next year he will be getting baptized!!! I will have 3 kids over the age of 8! He had grown in his two giant front teeth finally. I call them his 'can openers' or his 'SpongeBobs'. I told him that if we ever got into a pickle and lost our can opener and our power went out we could probably just stiffen out his body, open his mouth, and use his teeth to open all of our can food. He is such a funny little guy. Always making everyone laugh!
This is my brood on Halloween 2009! They are all so cute! Emmalee was Little Red Riding Hood.
Here is a group shot of just the boys. We couldn't get Emmalee to stop screaming, so she ended up not being in the picture. Such is the life! lol The pictures of Logan and Christian didn't show up on here. Well, since I was busy sewing last minute costumes for Gavyn and Jaidyn, I ran out of time to make them anything really cool. And gosh, this was like probably only the second Halloween that Logan and Christian weren't some sort of super heroe! I'm not joking! We have had way too many super heroe costumes in this family! So we thought of some ideas. They could be Edward Cullen and Jacob Black since Twilight was so big. We thought that would be really funny, but no. We ended up going super cheap and pulled out the Angels jerseys. So, they were Angels. That was easy, and cheap! lol
Gavyn was Jiminy Cricket and Jaidyn was none other than Pinocchio. I think i spelled that right. Oh well, you know what I mean. I sewed these costumes from scratch. I took the movie box, and created them all by myself. See I can be really crafty when I want to be! lol I wish I would have taken pictures of them the night before. We had a trunk or treat at church, and we put a bald cap on Gavyn and painted it green, so he was super bald and super green. But that night when we went to take it off it got stuck on his skin, so we didn't do it the next day! Poor guy, it really hurt him. He was a trooper though. Maybe one day it will come out as a repressed memory as the Halloween we torchered him with the bald cap. lol I hope not! lol
