3rd Annual Ferrell Family Halloween Party!

Because I don't want to spend 10 minutes moving these pictures to the bottom, the pumpkins first (sadly, in the Arizona heat, they did not make it to Halloween night):

It is so fun to get together with my family and be silly. This has become one of my favorite things to do every year. The kids love it and so do I. We play some Halloween games (pictures to come), eat a "gross" dinner, and then carve pumpkins. AnnaMarie- maybe next year you and the girls and fly out for it!! On the menu:
Witch's Blood (red powerade)
Bat's Blood (blue powerade)
Ghost's Blood (green powerade)
Giant's Blood (orange powerade)
Putrid Punch (tasty sherbet punch)
Nose-blow Burritos (burritos with beans, sour cream, guacamole, and tomatoes)
Toxic Waste (whipped cream fruit salad)
Rotting Pumpkin (pumpkin with funeral potatoes inside)
Hairy Giant's Fingers (bread sticks with cheese)
Goliath Tarantula Eggs (green peas)
Edible Eyeballs (vanilla pudding with candy)
Monster Brownies

Ashley took some great pictures of all of us having fun, but I have not picked them up yet- So more pictures to come...

Calling all Readers!

Dear Friends,
Please join Goodreads. It is just wonderful, I know you will LOVE it. Then we can become goodreads "friends". It might sound lame, but it is actually my new favorite thing.
Once you join goodreads, you can rate all of the books you have read, see what others are rating books before you read them, and you can save books to your "to-read" list. Ever itching to read a good book, but you have forgotten those twenty books that sounded so good last week? That won't happen again once you join. Plus, goodreads will look through your email list and tell you all of your email friends who are already members of goodreads (like me!). Once you become "friends" with someone, you can see all of the books they have read and what they rated them. I love to see new books that my goodreads friends have liked. So join, and become my friend. Even if you don't read very often- You will once you join!!!

My Sweet Girl

As I have said before, Kalle is a girly girl through and through. She loves everything girl from dresses to makeup, polish to cute hair (although she does NOT love to sit while I DO her hair). Here are some recent pictures she wanted me to take of her to show off some cute things Grandma Ferrell has made for her:
A tutu for ballet class:
And a dress for Halloween:Of course the boys could NOT be left out of the action...

My kids just have the BEST 2 Grandma's there could ever be (and not just because they give my kids presents!) We are so loved and blessed!

Guess what we have???

Yes, ANTS!!! And these are not your everyday little black ants. These things are vicious, huge black ants that love to bite and put your skin on fire. Luckily they are only outside, and I think they are about gone (I've worked on it), but it was not before Brennen stood in a pile of them without moving. Poor guy.

Some other happenings around the Palmer home:

And some cute ones:
That's it. We're having fun!
