Ivie had her 5th birthday. She wanted a unicorn cake so we came up with this. I wanted to try these cake balls. They were fun and I definitely ate too many.

We had a Family night where the kids got to go pick a pumpkin from Grandma Froerer's garden. Then they painted them.

This year for halloween we all kind of did our own little thing. Ivie was a witch, Zander was a firefighter, Brighton was a dinosaur, Lance got to be Heman, and I fulfilled my young girl dreams by being Rainbow Bright, and . My mom tells me that when I was younger I used to say, "my name isn't Breklyn it's Rainbow Bright!"
My mom hosted a family halloween party at the old methodist church on 26th street. It was really fun and scary too. My Mom and Dad and especially my Uncle Jerold and his family went all out in decorating and games. We had a scavenger hunt in the dark and there were so many creepy things in an already creepy building. I had to pretend not to be scared so that Zander would calm down. They even had a fake hobo asleep in a sleeping bag with his cart, jugs of water and boxes of food. Pretty much everyone, including me, was fooled and thought that some guy really had snuck in and set up camp. Then of course we had kareoke and got to listen to my Dad aka Steve Perry sing a concert to us all night long. :)
On Halloween we took the kids trick or treating to a grand number of 5 houses in the pouring rain. Then we headed off to the Collard's for another fun party with fun games, and too many delicious treats!

family pictures

These were taken at the beginning of the summer. I'm just barely posting them. It was raining really hard but Austin and Karen were going to leave for Med school in the next week so this was our last chance for a family picture. Mitzi did these and they look awesome, especially when you consider the conditions for taking pictures.
