Smashing Good Time

For Halloween morning we went to Cal State Fullerton's 2nd Annual Pumpkin Launch. We had such a great time seeing pumpkins fly up in the air and get tossed around. A cannon called the Pumpkin Lobber even shot one across the field and it went right through the scoreboard all the way to the parking lot. 
The catapults examine their physics strategy.
Mommy, Son and Daddy yell Lobber! Lobber! Lobber!

Smashing Pumpkins is so much fun to watch!

Halloween evening we were joined by Leila , Brenda and Zion out to Trick-Or-Treat.

Best pumpkin carving this year (no no ours).

Are they tired yet? David, Brenda and me too tired to take our own pictures.

Count Zion ready for more sweets.
Thank you Mom and Dad Nix for feeding us the great pasta dish tonight and making it memorable for the kids!

Fireman Alex


For Halloween, Alex decided to be a firefighter. He got the idea from our visit to the FV Fire Department Open House last month. Alex also saw a real fire take place across the street last week on the day of our anniversary. He got his costume out, took me outside and wanted to help out the firefighters while daddy called 911. Two heros in the making.


Playing Dress Up

My niece Leila and I have so much fun playing Fashionista.  

She's a super model in the making 
and me? I get to play out my Rachael Zoe fantasy.

All of the clothes and accessories 
can be found in my closet collection and 
is available for 1 million dollars!

She looks like a young Carla Bruni, no?

Old Haunts

Every year we visit Roger's Gardens to see the Halloween displays
- it's one of our favorite past times. Here are pics from their Mad Scientist theme this year.
