Happy Halloween!

Between The CornMaze, Boo at the Zoo, trick or treating and sipping Apple Cider, it was a successful Halloween! I love having a kid big enough to walk around the neighborhood with. SO much fun!
Truan is not into looking at the camera when I ask him to, but I snapped a bunch of pictures anyway. They're mostly out of focus, blurry or not centered because of the constant motion of this kid! His face might not look like it, but he had a blast!

Truan in the Corn Box. It took him 5 mins before he started hurling corn at other kids....hence the sneaky face

Is that a Jelly bean face or what?

Cheese! Good pic Kylie, I like the part where your eyes are open.

Truan went down this slide probably 100 times. Loved it! I guess he doesn't realize that we can go slide any day of the week.

Boyz Boyz!

This face definitely doesn't represent the enthusiasm that was had during the train ride.

So much fun at the top of the slide!

LOVE this excited face!

Family Donner

Ultimately cheesy "Before" picture. By the way, that pumpkin was so freakin' heavy!

Nice! Truan had no idea what he was getting into....

This was serious business

And required a co-pilot...

JellyFace helped out by being ridiculously cute!

The final Products!

Nothing like a good pair of Jack-o-Lanterns!

Ready to head to Boo at the Zoo! All "Inja Turtled-out!"

We were made for Boo at the Zoo

Kris and his Nunchucks! Homemade.

Mom and The Bean

Boise's nothing like the East Coast, but I am enjoying what I've got!

Sadly this is the best out of the three pictures we tried to take with me and the kids...I need to train them to perform better.

No, You're seeing this correctly. I DO realize I posted a picture of Truan picking his nose, and Kris yawning. Hilarious. I love these guys.

Truan really liked the giraffe, but was hesitant to get close to him...Santa at the Mall, here we come. Expect tears.

Truan and Dad helped frost and decorate cupcakes....and then ate them! Yum!

The witching hour is HERE!

JB was a willing participant.

And we're off!

Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles.....Heros in a Half Shell!

Trick or Treating was a lot of fun, but it took a few tries for Truan to understand the concept. The first person who opened the door, Truan walked right into the house looking for grandma, "Grandma? Grandma!" The lady was a little confused why this 2 year old was invading her home....oops.

Here's Truan practicing his "Trick or Treat" and some of the door to door excitement!

Life as The Donners Know it

We have been doing lots of things these days, but I am horrible at blogging, and I am sorry that our "fans"(Christina) has to suffer for it. So if you've given up on us, I don't blame you. But you will be upset that you missed this one.

Every yeas we go to the Art in the Park and every year Kris looks forward to eating a Gyro! Yummm, lamb, or goat, or whatever it is. (yuck)

My Donner Boys! Hanging out with all that art.

The Donner Fam, fully equipped with two stollers, a sippy cup, a bottle, plenty of diapers and wetwipes, and a butt load of good times.

The Cornia Family

The Bean, and all of her glory.

Next we have pictures of what it is like to hang out at our house...

Here's a picture of Truan. Let's take a closer look: Truan has only one sock on, one of his arms hanging out of his shirt, a bruise on his cheek and playing with Mommy's phone, which he's not supposed to do. This is how Truan lives his life, in total shambles.

Truan ignoring me when I asked him to give me my phone back.

Truan has learned that he can roll his high chair around and climb up on any countertop of high reaching shelf that he's not supposed to be in. He knows when he gets caught..

In other news: The Jelly Bean is rolling over, whether we like it or not!

We are Boise State fans....can you tell?

Thanks to Kellie, we got to enjoy a pre-season Steelheads game! Wahoo! I soon learned that I do not like Hockey Fights. It can be very bloody.... Other than that, is was a LOT of fun!

Ok, so there was this lady who sat behind us and was totally drunk for the game. SHe was so loud and was making all sorts of awesome comments. I think my favorite comment was when she held her face with her hands and said, "God bless America!" GOOD entertainment! Can you see her in the back of this picture??


It's really blurry, but here's a pic of one of the fights. Can you see the fist coming down?? Too much for me!

In our Sunday Best

Truan has a favorite song. He asks for it by request and has a shockingly amount of smooth moves that goes with it. See for yourself!
