October Break

For October Break, we decided to head up to Las Vegas to visit our family there.



We got to see Dad and 'Z' (Thanks for the yummy dinner).




Chris and I got our teeth cleaned (fun family tradition - but really, thanks so much, Ann) - Sorry no picture.



We got to visit Chris' cousin Tom and his family (lame - we forgot our camera)...




and my brother had a fun 'pizza-palooza' at his house where he made scrumptious pizza works of art for all to enjoy - and by all, I mean all of my sibs + spouses (8), 4 grandkids + 1 grandkid girlfriend, my sister-in-law's sister and her son, a neice and her husband from my sis-in-law's side and a couple of neighbors...There were tons of people, and there was tons of food, and we had a great time with everyone (and we're lame again because we forgot our camera again. Oh,the shame. I'll hand over my blogger membership to anyone who asks for it).



We went to Target (aka: my happy place) about a hundred times...and one of the times we found these: EWWWWW (so we bought them for Chris' cousin's kids...cuz we're nice like that).




We went to the park to play


And then we had a little impromptu photo shoot - it was really windy so that was interesting - but we had fun.

Here are my faves (in no particular order):


(they seem a little washed out...I have alot to learn about picture taking...I know)

Thanks everyone! We had a great time.

Zit candy? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

And silly Karen. You don't need better skills. You need to download Picasa3 (FREE!!) and join Picnik (also FREE!!!)

Picasa3 even lets you do RETOUCHING.

and it's all FREE.

Zit poppers - sounds like a boy thing to me (and I should know!)
I can't believe you forgot your camera - as if the rest of us haven't done it before!

Looks like a fun October Break.

Zit candy? I can't believe all the money I've wasted on Pro Active to get rid of those things. To think, I could have just told my kids to be grateful for what they have, that people actually PAY to have zits! Lesson learned.

Ahh there! I feel so loved now. :) That zit candy is kind of gross. I've never seen anything like that before. My boys would get a kick our of that. Next time I'm at Target...if they don't make me puke first. ;)
