Just too cute!
Rylie and Saige decided that looking through binoculars was the best thing ever. They both walked around the house with them around their necks.

This Thanksgiving was really fun. We took a quick trip to Oregon to visit Grammie and Grandpa. They moved to Oregon this last summer and we hadn't seen their house or where they were living so it was really nice to know that they are doing well. They have a nice house in a beautiful area of central Oregon. We saw a lot of deer in their area. They also live close to 3 of my mom's 4 sisters so we were able to spend Thanksgiving with much of the family that we haven't seen for a long time. We actually had my Grandma Kasch and all of my mom's sisters there for dinner. It was really fun to see them and to see cousins that I haven't seen for WAY too long.
The girls LOVED spending time with their Grammie and Grandpa!!! They were spoiled rotten by the time we headed home...and we were only there for 4 days. Rylie got to ride Aunt Marlene and Uncle George's horse named Mac. She was so excited!!! Its all she talked about.
Saige didn't ride the horse because it was really cold out but she loved to watch with me from in inside.
We then traveled 4 hours to the Portland area where we got to see Grandpa and Lorraine Frint (my Dad's dad) and Aunt Dottie (Dad's sister) and Uncle Mel. We were able to spend the day with them and then stayed in a Hotel Saturday night with Mom, Dad, Aunt Dottie, Uncle Mel, and us. We had a great time (although WAY too short.) We then had to leave for home. We drove all day and got home at about 2:00 am on Monday morning.
It was so much fun and I loved being able to spend time with my extended family. A bunch of my family members had never even seen Saige.

Today we got to have Coley come over and play for a while. They had so much fun playing in the leaves. It is probably one of the last warmer days before it starts to snow so we decided to take advantage of it. We played on the slide, rode bikes, and played in the leaves. Its funny to see how much different boys are than girls. Cole sees a stick and instantly wants to hit something with it. He is so cute and they really had a lot of fun together today. We need to get them together more often!

This Halloween was really fun for the girls. They dressed up as princesses (of Course.) Saige was a stunning Snow White and Rylie a beautiful Cinderella. Of course, Saige's hair is a little too light to be a convincing Snow White so we had to improvise. We sprayed her hair black! It was really strange to see her with dark hair. And of course, Rylie had to have Cinderella hair too. We had a lot of fun getting dressed up to go visit Evan at work. Everyone there thought they were beautiful princesses. After his work we went to Grandma and Papa Ehat's house and before we got there Saige's hair color turned to dust. It was everywhere!!! Her clothes, car seat, and cute little face were covered in black. She looked like she had an abusive prince charming. Before we could go any further we had to stop for a bath. We washed her hair out and started out for trunk or treating as a blonde Snow White. We went around the church parking lot and the girls got WAY too much candy. Fortunately, Evan and I had our say and we "convinced" them to choose the good stuff. We then went to visit "Gongie" (Grandma Scadlock.) Gongie LOVED to show them off to some of her friends who were over to play games. After her house we went trick or treating to Auntie Amy and Uncle Silas' house. It was adventurous trying to keep the girls from falling asleep on the way. They seemed to have no problem waking up once we got there for more candy.
We had a good time and lessons were learned. I learned not to start Halloween events too early in the day. We were all exhausted by the time we got home and the girls were ready to get out of their costumes. I also learned that Black hairspray is probably NOT the best idea for a 20 month old.
