We all share the same moon no matter where we are in the world!

Happy Halloween

The girls went out trick-or-treating this year around the neighborhood. Taylor designed her Gypsy fortune teller outfit and Kendy went as a cat. Both girls used their cool goodie bags Grandma Greta made for them. Of course they collected lots of candy and we ate it all! We also went to Nick's garden center for their fall festivities and Tagawa's as well.

Disneyland Vacation

We took the kids to So. California for Taylor's Fall break from school to see family and Disneyland. The girls had so much fun as did Kip and I. The trip almost didn't happen....Kip returned from Chicago late the night before and was up all night with the stomach flu and was in no condition to fly. We rearranged our travel schedule and made a late afternoon flight amidst a snow storm.
On our way finally to fun in the sun! Kendy loved cruising through Disneyland via stroller and going on the rides. Minnie and Mickey were there to greet us and the girls got their autographs and pictures. Kendy was a little frightened at first but soon warmed up to the characters and was carrying her own autograph book. Kendy especially loved the teacups! Taylor loved meeting Rapunzel and riding the bigger rides like the Matterhorn and Raiders of the Lost Ark. I loved being there with Kip and the girls. We all had a blast and followed the parade out of the park at closing.
Next we went to Auntie Sherry's house and spent some time with cousins TD & Marjolein, Sasha and Saskia and Kirk and Brock and Maddie. We went swimming, played at the park, went to the beach and hung out with Auntie Sherry. WE also went to a local school carnival and got some great ideas for our school next year. It is always sad to leave family, but happy to be home again.
