Halloween 2010

All these holidays so close together is making it more difficult to be lazy about uploading pictures. Well, here goes.

Pumpkin Carving.

Finished products.

Hana as Dorothy Sion as Snow White

Carnival games at our Ward potluck/Halloween Carnival/Trunk or Treat/Soft serve extravaganza.

Sis Squires was awesome. She held Keri all night so that we could chase the other kids. Looks like Keri had a good time, too.

Tate (aka Darth Tater) and his friend, Asher

OK, here is where it gets confusing. On Saturday, the girls switched costumes. We invited some friends and went to the Halloween carnival on the base.

Sion combining Cinderella and Dorothy and Hana as a wind-blown Snow White

Mommy's Little Pumpkin.

The Gang: Our neighbors ( Silas, Jeanine and Jasmine), Tate's friend, Cole and Tate, Hana and Sion at the end of the carnival.

Found another one

OK, OK. I know it hasn't been two months, but I had to post another picture.

OK, now I really am going to wait two more months. (Maybe)

September through October

The last few months in photos:

Sion has decided that she wants to be the baby again so she gets more attention.

Welcome to the Moench Monastery. We meditate on our animal selves...

Super Tate!

Keri pics (what people really want to see)

Replacing the sink faucets and water shut-offs becomes a family project.

Sea World Parade!

Dad and Tate get soaked on the coaster

The sea birds here are pretty agressive

Carnival rides for everyone

Sion and Hana play in Elmo's playground

Keri has about as much fun as she can stand

We saw the dolphin show, which is now a dolphin/aquatic Cirque de Soleil show. Pretty Cool. The even have some big birds and pilot whales involved.

I think I'm turning Japanese. I think I'm turning Japanese. I really think so (think so, think so)




Keri doesn't have the Japanese clothes yet, but she is cute just as she is.

Hana trying to "cute" her way out of getting caught with her "Bubba" before bed time. (No Bubbas Before Bedtime!)

Is this punk enough for you? All she needs now is a tank.

Keri has decided that she gets the big bed, and we get the crib.

More pics in a few months......

We gave Tate a camera

We gave Tate my old camera, because he always wants to take pictures. Over the last weeks, he has been running wild with it, taking pictures of almost everything. We thought that we would showcase his work here. While he is not behind the camera in every shot, he is directing the action of every image.

We start with Ice Water (a still-life)

Keri in Grandma's Hands

Tate in front of the camera....................and behind it

Cashus (OK, this shot bugged me. I have been trying for years to get that dog to give me a decent photo - Just one good one for your feeder, but no. Tate gets one within a few shots.)

Lightsaber Fights (with Cole)

At work behind the camera

Hana (the evil twin) being precious.........................Sion (the other evil twin) about to steal her mom's food

and thus concludes our exhibit of Tate's photography. We hope to offer more exhibits in the future.

More Keri Pics
