Poor Accident Prone Nyah

Notice the scrapes on her forehead and nose and of course the lip.
My poor accident prone Ny. So, this actually happened the week before Halloween, I get a call from the school saying that Nyah fell and hit her nose, it was bleeding and she was upset. Now, with Nyah, she has a Runia trait of getting bloody noses VERY easily. Her friend once hit her in the face with a stuffed animal and it caused a bloody nose. Now with this comes A LOT of blood all over it just gushes out. So anyway all I knew is there was a bloody nose and that was it. So, I go to the school to get her and take a look at the rest of her face (mostly her lip) and realize it's not just a bloody nose, which has stopped thank heavens but her coat has blood all over and she is still crying and upset. I then ask what happened cause she looked AWFUL and she said she tripped on the black top and fell hitting her face on the ground. I am thinking, "you didn't stop yourself with your hands?" Not to mention the black top has nothing to trip on. So basically she tripped on the flat ground and face planted without putting her hands out to stop herself. Her lip was so big she could barely talk, it was sad and that day we had to give her soft foods to eat seeing as her teeth were hurting as well. This poor uncoordinated child, I feel bad for her "accidents" which are frequent, she is VERY clumsy, hence the nickname Bella junior (any Twilight fans know exactly what I am referring to).

Witches Night and Halloween in Vegas with a Baptism

I got invited to this thing called "Witches Night Out" with some friends. This place called Gardner Village does it every year, where you come with friends all dressed as witches. It was so much fun, there was dancing and shopping and if you where not dressed up, you stood out. I actually got invited by two different friends, so I went both nights and had a blast. We decorated our hats and my friend, Rachel taught me how to do my skirt and I was happy about my costume, minus the fat pregnant belly, but you can't avoid that this year. This is the first night I went there was the 5 of us and we had way too much fun! I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
This is the 2nd night, I went with my friend Rachel and a bunch of her friends and it was a ton of fun as well.
Okay so, for Halloween this year we actually went to Las Vegas because my niece was getting baptized on Halloween, so we went trick-or-treating there. By the way AWESOME trick-or-treating weather, you don't have to find warm clothes for underneath the costumes ha ha. We also went to this amazing neighborhood, where every house was decked out. They made the decorations I have seen here look like dollar store specials. These people go ALL OUT! They where all hanging out on their drive-way's having get togethers, passing out candy, some people where handing out what they call "sliders" which basically a mini hamburger out to everyone. This other house had this haunted house through their backyard you could go through. It was so neat, we had a great time! My kids picked there costumes. . .

Nyah was a witch, but it had to be a pretty witch, I was under specific instructions not to make her ugly.
Keira was a pumpkin which is totally her. She didn't want ANY make-up on so we had to compromise a little.
Jayda, didn't pick cause we had a costume for her, she is a princess, but added her own flare. Nanny brought vampire teeth for all the kids with her and this one REFUSED to take it out of her mouth. So, I guess she is a vampire princess.
Nyah LOVED going trick-or-treating with her cousins, she was so excited.

Here is all of us, Jared was obviously "Clark Kent" and I wore my witch costume.

Here is everyone at the baptism earlier that day. Nothing like going from spiritual Baptism to Halloween in one day.

We stayed in Vegas for a few days and one day we went to this casino that had this big sporting goods store and a HUGE fish tank, this kids loved it. Apparently they also have mermaids (real people) in there on the weekends but we went on Monday so we didn't see the mermaids. Nyah was very disappointed about that.

Jayda was mesmerized

After the fish tank we did the sporting goods and seriously who taught my girls how to shoot guns, this is just scary if you ask me. Of course they are very girly, even for girls.

Nyah with her cousins, Aisia and Addy who then showed her how to actually hold a gun.

Jayda just flings the gun all over the place, while Keira didn't have much interest in the guns. Seriously who taught them how to hold a gun. . .

We had a great Halloween this year, now on to the next holiday.
