The Petersen's Carve a Pumpkin

So, last year we (Shon) carved a fantastic Darth Vader, but this year Hailey really wanted a Princess Castle. How could we say no to that. Shon drew it on and we all took turns carving. Turned out great of course. We had fun too. Here are the pictures!

So this is the little house Shon built for the girls in Hailey's room. It was made out of those rubber tiles that make for a soft flooring. They are sure enjoying spending all this extra time with Daddy! The last picture was the one and only cold day we had here in California in the last 30 days. I can't believe it's almost November and it's like 90 degrees outside! I have the next 2 days off, so I am very happy! I do have to work on Halloween though, : ( The joys of working retail! I don't have to be in until 6:30, so I guess that gives me time to get the girls all dressed up and snap a few pictures, before they head off to Trick or Treat without me. Hailey is very excited to be Strawberry Shortcake and borrowed a costume from her cousins. Brook of course made it and it's beautiful! She has already tried it on and wanted a photo shoot. McKenzie will be one of the 5-6 costumes we already have. I don't expect her to stay in it long anyway.

Pumpkin Patch

So after a long day at work on Saturday, we took the girls to the Pumpkin patch. Here are a few pictures. We picked out a very large Pumpkin and the girls are looking forward to Daddy carving it. We ended the night getting lost in a large Corn maze! It was fun, I look tired, but it was fun.

At Home . . .

Me workin this week at my old office. Tonight is my first night home in a few nights, it's been nice relaxing and sitting on the couch!! Oh, and seeing my two girls! I am also on my laptop and was going through old pics, I thought I would post this one from exactly two yrs ago, when I chopped off all my hair and donated it. It took so long getting used to, but finally 2 yrs later, I can look at these and think, it wasn't soooo bad. I wasn't a fan of it at the time though!

So, I have no pictures to upload, I am currently updating this sitting at my old desk in my old office. I am getting a taste for the working mom. I used to work at Allstate insurance for about 7 years of my life, it was truly my home away from home. I have filled in since having Hailey when people are out on vacations etc. So I am working here all week, while two people are out. I got a part time job at Kohl's. Its hard work, but the discounts are worth it. I am learning the ropes over there working nights. I can't wait till this week at Allstate is over, it's rough having two jobs, and two kids. Shon has been wonderful filling in where mommy can't be. He sends videos to my phone several times a day of the girls being silly. It's sweet, thanks Shon! Life continues to be crazy and fun, just thought I would give a little update while taking a break at the office!

Our Beach trip

So on Wednesday our little family took a quick trip to the beach. It was such a warm day and I think Shon and I expected to feel the cool ocean breeze, but it was dang hot! I guess it was better than sweating at home though! It was wonderful, the beach was pretty empty, being Oct. 1st, and the middle of the school week! Here are some photos.
