Trick or Treat down memory lane

This was our first Halloween as Perez Party of 8~2008

                                                         This is the kids last year 2009

And here they are this year 2010~ They LOVE Toy Story so we have Cooper as Buzz, Cole as Woody, Ella as Jessie, Kennedy as Jessie & Casen as the Slinky Dog. Haiden really wasn't to into dressing up this year, so I never could manage to get a picture with him in it.

They absolutely loved trick or treating this year and TOTALLY rocked saying "trick or treat" when they would go up to someone's door!

Dewberry Farms/Pumpkin Patch

Ah yes, my favorite time of the year EVER~ FALL! So, with that being said, I had really wanted to go to Dewberry Farms last year, but the WEATHER was so not on our side. So I decided that this year WE WERE GOING NO MATTER WHAT~ and that is just what we did. The eight of us, Nonnie, Auntie Heather, Cousin Gavin, AUntie Ashley & Aunt Debbie piled into 2 cars and off we went for the hour drive~ It was really worth the wait & ride. Although we weren't able to get to do EVERYTHING in the 5hrs we were there, we did indeed have a great time. Oh and since I mentioned the 5hr stay at the farm, let me also throw in that the babies had NOT had a nap that day and were AWESOME~ We got to ride a hayride out the pumpkin patch to pick out our own pumpkins and the kids really loved that.

This is the big kids & Casen on the hayride with their prize pumpkins!

I took this sweet picture of Miss Kennedy & Miss Ella~I have to say this picture just melts my heart EVERYTIME I look at it~I hope they always stay close, because I know how much my sisters mean to me & what a great relationship we have.

Here is Kennedy with her PERRRRR FECT pumpkin. HA~

Haiden launching corn at the metal targets~

And then we have daddy here, who was such a GREAT SPORT, why you might ask? Well, you see he gave up watching his DALLAS COWBOYS to be with the family at the farm. However, in this picture you will notice his "earplugs", those "earplugs" just so happened to give him play by play of the game~HA!

Mommy & Cooper watching the big kids on the ziplines

Cole aka: CoCo with his Auntie Heather being such a ham!

Haiden on the zipline

Kennedy getting a "push" from Gavin on the zipline
PIT STOP!!!!!!!!!!

Haiden, Kennedy & Gavin mining for GOLD

Cooper with the pig, I swear this child IS NOT afraid of ANYTHING~can I also just add that ever since seeing the pig at the farm, his now favorite noise to make is......a snorting pig!

I love this picture of Ella checking out the chickens

Kennedy giving the goats a lesson on no biting! HA!

One last pit stop for snowcones, kettle corn and funnel cake sticks! YUMMY~

Then last but not least we tried to get a family picture at the farm, however, note to self: NEVER EVER save family pictures for the last event of a FIVE HOUR day on the FARM~ Cooper was trying so hard to get away from his daddy HA!

We did indeed have a great time together "on the farm"! Oh, and I would also like to mention we did not take a stroller, wagon or anything for the babies. It does make me a little sad that they are growing up sooooo fast!!!!!!

Duct...... Duct.......Duct........TAPE

Yep, you read it right! We have to DUCT TAPE the diapers on to the quads! WHY, you might ask? Well, because as much as I would have no problem with of any of my kids growing up to be artists, I DO HAVE A HUGE problem with them being POO-CASSO! YEP, they play in their poop~seriously how gross is that? Well, let me just tell you it is as gross as you imgained it being TIMES FOUR~ So since we had tried everything, we had to resort to duct taping their diapers. EXCEPT for Casen, we had to duct tape the top of his pants. You know there is always one in the group that has to be the CREATIVE one. However, after about 4 months of duct taping their diapers, I am pleased to announce we no longer have to use it on the diapers. It has been placed back in daddy's work bench.
