Saturday we went to another Blazers vs. Suns game. We took the girls this time, which turned out to a pretty bad idea. It was just too late for Lily to stay up, but once she fell asleep we were able to relax and watch the rest of the game. I just spent about 40 minutes in the family bathroom trying to get her to stop crying is all... Anyway we took our secret weapon Allie with us, and since she's so cute nobody could be mad at us for cheering for the Blazers in Phoenix. Oh, and this time we did NOT have front row seats, but sat up in the upper bowel, but we still had a blast.

I won't go into too many details because some of you may not have seen Twilight yet, but I want to go on record in saying that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't really go in with my expectations all that high, knowing that the movies are never as good as the books they are based on, so I ended up being pleasantly surprised and totally loved it. Thanks Saysha for taking me for my birthday! Several of our friends went to the midnight showing, however since her and I are up during the nights with our little babies we wimped out and went yesterday afternoon instead. Way fun.

So last weekend we went out for my "birthday" which isn't actually for like three weeks but this counted as my birthday present. We splurged and bought FRONT ROW tickets to the Blazers vs. Suns game here in Phoenix. As most of you know I am a HUGE Blazers fan, and have converted Danny to be one as well, so we really have always wanted to sit on the front row so we just went and did it. Thank you to our friends Nate and Saysha for watching the girls, so we were able to really enjoy the game and not have to think about anything else. A few weeks before that we took them to an NHL game here and Allie had fun yelling "Go Coyotes!" but Lily didn't really enjoy it so we left early, with a screaming baby. Anyway back to the Blazers... We got all decked out in our Blazer clothes and unfortuantly they lost but we had such a great time. Of course our favorite team is the Blazers, but the Suns have always been my second favorite team, so it was especially fun to watch. Shaq is huge, they call him The Big Cactus here now that he plays for the Suns, and it was cool to see him play up close. After the game we were able to meet several of the players and get autographs. Here is Danny with Nicholas Batum and me with Rudy Fernadez. I won't post all of the pics because I'm sure most of you have lives and don't REALLY care all that much, so I won't waste your time any longer. It was however EXTREMELY exciting for us. Thank you for listening.

So Danny and I were looking through some old pictures of the two of us and decided to scan a few, and I thought I would share a couple of our favorites. Here is one of Monique and I on a horse, and then one of Hilary and I playing doctor. I'm the one on the left in both pictures.
I have the best sisters in the world by the way. They were always so nice to their baby sister. Except for the time they told me I was adopted. Or that they told me that Monique was a ghost. Or when they let Andy tie me up with duct tape... No really they are the greatest. :)

We have attended several Halloween events over the course of the last couple of weeks, but the actual day is always the most exciting. We went to the Halloween party at our church, and Allie got a bucket of candy. They had some great games for kids, and the girls were adorable.
Lily started out the evening dressed like this... She had been a pumpkin for earlier events but decided to go with a different vegetable and dress her up like a pea-pod. I knew she'd be warm, but told her that since she's a girl she might as well learn early that sometimes sacrifices must be made for fashion. Her mom doesn't do that often obviously, but sometimes it just has to be done.She ended the evening like this. The 95 degree weather made us start to think that child services might be called on us if we forced her to wear it any longer. She was must happier after this costume change.Our happy little familyCute little girls ready to party
