Here is a side shot of the pile of cards that are all singles. A total of 360!! It's so awesome of Billy to give all of these to Xander.
Xander had to get his picture with everyone there!
And a good one of Xander & Darth Vader as we were leaving.
Here is the video of Jedi Master Tolman 'aka' Pat doing a lightsaber fight :)

After we were done we snuggled up and watched 'Definitely, Maybe'. I love this movie and these 3 hadn't seen it, so it was fun.
Me & Lana
It was so nice to be able to get away for an evening. Thanks Pat & Morri for watching kids, we appreciate it. My heels really needed that pedicure :)

So she was really helpful in one situation, but a totally hindrance in the other.
Conli & Mara playing princesses:
After the games were done I pulled out a new game that I am borrowing from Lana (Thanks again!!) It's called 'Say What?' There are 5 balls in the game, and it will say famous phrases from movies, songs, TV, etc. The phrase is all out of order and you have to move the balls to get them in the right order!! It is so fun!! There are some different ways to play with limited guessing or timed mode. I played with JD, Lisa, and even my Mom tried!! It was way fun and JD was totally the winner every time. But Lisa did way awesome and got one right in the first try, and she didn't even know what it was saying!! It was so cool!! I totally need to buy this one! JD is a little addicted to it!
Karri was so nice to take the girls outside. Here they are probably looking at bugs.
These girls are just so cute together, even when they are way dirty from being outside. Notice all the dirt on Mara's face: She had a runny nose and the dirt attached to it!! She was seriously the dirtiest I have ever seen her!
Before we left we were able to get a good family picture. This was only the second picture and everyone looks great, and even Sawyer is looking at the camera! And of course what's a family picture without a funny one!
I love being at the cabin, as I have mentioned before, and it was great to have everyone there. I hope that as the years go by we will be able to go more often.

This morning we were playing outside and Mara picked this flower out of the garden. She was so cute and pulled off all of the leaves. She finally let me put it in her hair and this was the 'cutest' picture
My mom went out shopping and found this costume for Xander. Looks like he will be Ash Ketchum from Pokemon for Halloween. (I can't get him to take the thing off, he's so happy!)

Last night Karri came over and wanted to look for some things in my mom's shed (which is a great storage area for mom, Karri and us. Karri got out some of her boxes that had Barbie's in them and Mara went crazy!! She loved them, especially the shoes :) Here she is with Karri's Barbie apartment and some of the dolls. I guess I need to get her some Barbie's now!! She even took one outside with her.
I found this 'Boo' doll (from Monster's Inc) in a box and Mara has adopted her and even gave her a really good ride on the swings.
After going in the shed I told Karri that we should go through it and organize it better. So after dinner we did just that!!! We were able to fill my mom's car with a bunch of stuff to go to DI and were able to throw stuff away too!! Now there is alot more room for things, and this morning Pat & I were able to take totes of things from the house and put it out in the shed too!! Now we have more space in the kids room, which makes me happy :)
