{Boo at the Zoo}

We took the girls to 'The Largest Halloween Party' at our local zoo tonight. It's a family tradition and we're going to miss it since this was our last. Hopefully our new zoo next year, wherever that might be, will do something just as fun. Anyways, this year both our girls are ladybugs for Halloween! And I have to say that they are the cutest ladybugs I've ever seen!!! We're looking forward to more Halloween festivities so we can dress them up some more!!
Seriously...I just can't get enough of these cheeks!! :-)

The Neighbor Boy

Honestly, what would we do without Jonny most days??? Alexa absolutely adores this little man! I had to add this picture because I stole it from Jonny's mommy's blog and I thought it was so cute of the two of them.

Homeward Bound

This past weekend, we were able to fly home to Arizona for two purposes: 1) to see Kevin's family (the last time we were there, Alexa was barely walking!!!) and 2) to start the job hunt process (yikes, can you believe graduation is JUST around the corner??!!!). It was a super busy and tiring trip but also a lot of fun and quite productive as well!! Here is our little miss on her very first plane ride! As you can tell, she was lovin' every minute of it!! :-)
Alexa had so much fun with her cousins this time. Two years makes a HUGE difference in the development of toddlers!!
The year Alexa was born, 2006, she also had two cousins born on the Mortenson side, Ainsley and Amelia. And it wasn't planned but they all were named with names starting with "A"....hence, the Triple A's!! It will be so much fun to see these three girly girls grow up together!
And 2009 was also a big year on the Mortenson side! FOUR babies joined the ranks! Hadley started things off back in March, then Payton made her appearance in April, followed by Eli in July, and Bryant wrapped things up nicely in August. What cuties they all are!
And we couldn't leave the hot mamas out!! I'm so blessed to have such wonderful sisters-in-law (you too Georganna!!)! Thanks ladies for all you bring into my life and the lives of my children! We look forward to living closer to all of you soon!!
