Kayla asked me to take her sledding today. I told her we could all go, but I could only watch. She asked me why and I told her because if I fell I could hurt the baby. She said, "It's ok mommy, I'll hold you're hand."

This is Mckenna's award winning art. She won a smoke alarm and a t-shirt from the fire department for drawing the best picture in honor of fire prevention week. She chose to draw things that are hot. You can see the frying pan at the bottom and the other boxy shapes are stoves, ovens and microwaves. I asked her what the vertical line was coming out of the stoves. She said, "mom, its fire!' What does this say about my cooking? Ouch! haha
Mckenna was asked to draw a picture of what she wanted to be when she grew up: A Dentist. Check out the detail in this picture. The green person is a mommy standing by.
She has been really into barbie lately so I made her a barbie cake. This was a lot easier than I expected. Her castle cake was much more difficult. Her big gift was a bike (which we gave to her early so she could enjoy it this year). We also got her a journal which has been really fun to see her entries in the last week. I am sure that will be the topic of blog posts to come.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY my Mckenna!

All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose."

Today Maine votes on weather to allow same sex marriages. While I'm sickened about this issue I guess I can find comfort in my faith that our Heavenly Father is in control.

We had a great Halloween. I couldn't believe how big my girls are. We were invited to a Halloween party and then we all took our kids trick-or-treating together. Mckenna and Kayla didn't need my help at all. They kept right up with the older boys going house to house to collect their treats. I found myself a little emotional (lame, I know) by the fact they didn't need or want me to take them up to each door. I'm glad that I still have another one on the way to "baby." After we got home from trick-or-treating we handed out candy. Well, we let the girls hand out candy. The girls took this job very seriously. Kayla was assigned by Mckenna to open up the door and Kenna declared herself the candy giver to all the "customers." We had a lot of fun watching them do this "job."
Here is the picture of my costume that I promised. It's hard to come up with a costume when you're prego, but I got creative and it turned out great! The skeleton idea I got online, but I had to be creative in making it because there weren't any pictures of this idea online. Now for all of you that are prego during Halloween, you now have a picture to refer to for your costume next year!
