We had a fun Halloween this year with Trunk-or-treat, a visit to Mr. Bones pumpkin patch, and trick or treating in our neighborhood. We also hosted a little halloween party with friends before the kids went out trick-or-treating together. So much candy!

Looking to the future.....
All lined up and ready to go!
All the gratuates.
Axel's graduation "glamour shot."
We love Ms. Claude!
Big brother and proud little sisters.
I didn't cry nearly as much as last year's graduation ceremony-when he wasn't even graduating!
Proud papa
Afterward Axel's choice for dinner--In n' Out Burger!
And for dessert--Diddy Riese cookies-yum!

New House, Disneyland, Strawberry picking etc.

We went strawberry picking for Memorial day at our favorite farm.
Eleanor is happy with a tummy full of strawberries.

Disneyland days are coming to an end with Axel going to school in the fall, sadly. We got a few more days in before summer starts. fun!
Just give Eleanor food and she is happy.

New house from the back. A "before" shot. We are enjoying our new place!
Axel loves to climb this tree in the front yard.

kids on the front porch.

We had a major peach picking/canning blitz early in the month. Yum!

Eleanor the hotdog. Baby's first halloween!

Axel as Luke, of course.

Eating soup at the ward trunk or treat.

Lindsey visited us in October--so fun. We took a great hike by the beach on Saturday.

Took the kids to a pumpkin patch.

The hayride was a real hit!

My friend Melissa has a great camera and was kind enough to snap some shots of the kids in costumes. Thanks Melissa! As you can see, we are all about Star Wars these days.

We had so much fun going to Utah in July for my mom's wedding. It was great to see everyone and go to some fun family events.

All the sisters riding the tram at Snowbird.

My mom with all her grandkids

We got to be there for Elsa's first birthday. So much fun!

Back in California, we went to the beach forLabor Day weekend. The kids never get tired of the beach. Lulu is a crazy woman in the waves

Eleanor eating sand, of course.

Axel doing his exercises? Not sure.

All of us at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano.

Axel turned 5 last week! He got a new bike and lots of Star Wars stuff that he has been playing with non-stop. I think Lulu was more excited than him about the gifts.

We had a big birthday party, garden themed. Crazy, but fun. Here are the boys playing Star Wars, of course.

Before the party, all nice and decorated. Wish I had an after picture.
