Kyle accepted a Store Director position at the Iowa City Hy-Vee Drugstore! I am so proud of him, and so excited to start a new chapter in our lives.

We took a little road trip out to Iowa City yesterday to scope things out, here is his store!

Back in September my parents and Katy came out for the weekend, we tooled K out to Boogio's (orchard/pumpkin patch) for a short little visit. Kiley hadn't napped- so she was a little crabby and did not want to do much there- but it was still fun !

Tub time!

After a short weekend trip to Iowa- I got back just in time to give K her bath Sunday night! Even though it was only about 36 hours away from her- I missed her like crazy!

Happy Halloween!

Our little ladybug!
 We started out visiting Tami! Tami spoiled her with some Halloween cupcakes! Yum!
Can't believe we got such a good little smile out of K!
 (must have been the cupcakes that did the trick!)
then we visited Hailee! 
Hailee spoiled Kiley with a whole bucket full of goodies!!
After stopping at Tami and Hailee's houses, we met Daddy at Hy-Vee and trick or treated in the store!  We made a few more stops at friends houses (again Kiley got spoiled by them all!)  And then made our way to Utica to Chad, Mary and Lydia's house.  Kiley and I trick or treated at a few houses in their neighborhood, and she loved it!  She would walk up to the door and say "trick or treat" "happy halloween" and "thank you!"  We ended the night back at Chad, Mary and Lydia's.  The girls had so much fun playing together!
 Lydia and Kiley
Her loot! I'd say she had a pretty successful trick or treat!

ISU vs KSU football game in Ames

A few weekends ago Kiley and I headed back to Des Moines for a short weekend trip.  We headed up to Ames with all of my sisters and parents (Uncle John was already up there with friends) and we attended the Iowa State- Kansas State football game.  For those of you who don't know, this is where our house is divided, we cheer for both teams but when it came down to it, we had to wear the ISU gear that day!

 Kiley had a meltdown when we saw Cy, she was a little scared, so Aunt Jenny and I posed for a pic!

 haha, I love K's expression,looking up at her Aunt Pip

 this is what happens when you are 2 and go to a tailgate/football game!
 passed out for half of the game on grandma!

 got her to pose with Willie, even though she says " I scared of Willie, I scared of Cy"
I'm sure to most people it is a little odd wearing ISU and wanting a picture with Willie!

We had to do an outfit change after the game because it warmed up a lot!
