‘Twas the Night Before Halloween

 where-the-wild-things-costume where-the-wildthings-areI have just loved dressing these kiddos up for Halloween. Excitement is in the air as Halloween approaches, tomorrow is the big day, and these two are more then ready to get their trick-or-treat on.

I put Hudson in one of his costumes from last year, his fox costume. I knew it would be one of the last times I would see it on him. He was such a sensation last year at trunk-or-treating on his scooter and his Bose in his pumpkin blasting “What does the fox say?” View that post HERE

I love creating memories and this song pretty much sums up how I feel about my children and my prayer for them.

15 Ways to Stay Young Forever

How to stay looking young forever in 15 easy steps.

1. Drink water. No Soda! Smoothies + Protein Shakes as meal replacements only.

2. Use Lotion Everywhere. When applying use upward strokes

3. Stretch

4. Long Distance Running Is A No! Running wears out your joints, period. Low impact workouts are best. If you have to run, sprint. Also have you seen the skin on some of the intense runners, its saggy and spotty, no thank you.

5. Floss

6. Beauty Sleep 8 Hrs A Night

7. Wash Face or Shower Before Bed. Rejuvinate your skin,

8. Don’t sleep with any lights on. Prevents REM sleeping

9. Exfoliate Body & Face Once A Week.

10. Eliminate Stress. Look for ways to simplify

11. Read

12. Excersice

13. Lift Weights

14. Eat Breakfast

15. Laugh

I am so attracted to youth. I want to be young forever, and I want my kids to stay little for always as well. When I think what age I am I think 15. 15 was the perfect age. It was before cars, jobs, serious boyfriends, it was before all my friends and I got split up as we made different dance, cheer, teams. It was the age of slumber parties, girl talk, pranks, it was bliss. I think the reason I love this song and video is because it’s just a bunch of kids being kids, and nothing is better then that. It’s by an adorable 15 year old girl. The music video is kind of morbid, but I think it’s great for October:) I have been literally blasting this song ever since I found it. When I found out this girl was 15 I liked it even more. I tell you, something is very special about that age.

another awesome song

*I watch these videos and think of three things
1- my little brothers
2- my childhood
3- i want to be young forever :)

All I can say is sometimes mother doesn’t know best. I took the kiddos Halloween shopping Holland grabbed a Dorthy outfit and I instantly went to Wizard of Oz mode. I was going to be a witch, Dallin a scarecrow, Holland Dorthy, and Hudson either ToTo , lion, or the tin-man. Hudson proceeded to throw a Spiderman costume into my cart. I bent down and told him his options b/c we were going to do a family theme. Hudson held my cheeks looked me strait in the eyes and told me “I do not want to wear any of those costumes, I am being Spiderman!” I bought Dorthy and Spiderman. I came home seriously in tears. -I take Halloween very seriously- I called my husband and told him I guess we are no longer doing family theme Halloween costume ideas. My husband said “that’s fine, but can you please get a photographer b/c I really want new family photos to put on the wall.” and then it hit me. We should all be literally hanging off the wall. Hudson is a genius. We should all be Spiderman! I went back to the costume store arranged a photographer to meet us in SLC, we ambushed my hubs after work and took “family photos”. It was not what any of us originally had in mind, which is why I probably love it so much! Hudson was soo beyond happy and the icing on the cake was we ended the photo shoot with a silly string fight that looked like spiderwebs.

Today is the first official Halloween even where the kiddos get to wear one of there costumes, we went a little overboard this year in the costume department. I just love dressing them up. Tonight’s costumes are actually ones that I made. I got crafty. The kids and I went to the fabric store, made the costumes and the accessories. Tonight the kiddos are being Pebbles and Bam-Bam. These costumes are so fun! And didn’t even require me to use a sewing machine. Which is really good, because I don’t own one. I can’t wait to show you the costumes!

Hooray the Marriott Commercial that I filmed in August is now airing. Speaking of “Monster Mash”… the makeup artist and wardrobe had a little too much fun with my makeup and ratting my hair in this number. I literally felt like a monster with how dark my makeup was and how big my hair was lol gotta love it!
