Mascot Halloween Party

Life has been crazy the past couple of days, with taking Emery up to Primary Children's and finding out she has pneumonia, and all the lack of sleep that goes along with it. Good news though, she is finally starting to feel a little bit better today. Yay! 

Even though I'm behind, I still wanted to post these pictures from the Halloween Party we went to last Saturday. We love Mascot Miracles Foundation and all the fun events they put on for the kids. We love the fun memories we get to make with these crazy zoo animals, and we consider them some of our very dearest friends. 

Lilly and Emery have been saving some silly string for a while now and decided the best way to use it would to be to spray Felix! 
And they are still talking about how fun it was! 

Harry Potter meets Darth Vader?

Now this is a big deal... Em conquered another one of her fears. She loves loves loves horses, but when she gets near them she panics. Same thing as with the mascots. Well, Lilly was getting ready to ride a horse and Jay just stuck her up there in the saddle with Lilly. She was extremely nervous and was only sitting on the horse for about a minute. But, she did it! I was so proud of her. Now, when she talks about it, she said she would ride a horse if Lilly was with her, or with our friend Kenzi. She is getting brave! (and I think therapy is helping!!)

Beautiful Cinderella - which is Emery's very favorite princess, and Glen from Change 4 Love. What an awesome guy! 

The girls had never bobbed for apples before, which was fun for them. They both ended up grabbing their apple by the stem with their teeth. Smart girlies! 

But then Jay had to show them how it was really done...

My crazy husband! Where'd his head go? Let's just say he got a little bit wet! 
Crazy guy! 

Look! We even found Santa!

Matt Birch is the man behind the horses and carriages and this event is held at his home. What a great guy! We love you Matt!

Thanks Mascot Miracles Foundation! We look forward to this event every year! Happy Halloween everyone!
