trick or treat.

Since today is Halloween I made caramel apples. 
While I was dipping the apples in the caramel Indie decided she should climb onto the counter and get some candy. 
She is becoming a monster. Climbing and getting into everything, throwing things everywhere, and getting whatever sticky mess she has on her hands all over the couches and walls. 
This was too funny. She ate a kit kat by sucking it out of the wrapper. 

This was Indie's first time trick or treating. 
Before going trick or treating we had dinner at village inn.
We usually hate that place, but the one at the district is pretty dang good.
We took her to my sister's neighborhood in South Jordan. 
She loved walking down the street. 
She obviously had no idea what was going on, but she loved getting candy from everyone. 
Every time someone opened their door Indie tried to walk in the house. 
Once she had the piece of candy in her hand it went straight to her mouth. 
We saw a little girl dressed as brobee from yo gabba gabba and Indie loved it. 
She tried talking to brobee saying, "ba bababa". Pretty dang cute. 
After going around the cul de sac 
(cause we're lazy parents & indie was getting tired) 
we passed out candy at my sister's house. 
Indie stayed by the door and tried to open it. 
We went back home to pass out candy at our apartments and Indie looked through her candy. 
Then we ended the night with hot chocolate and caramel apples. 

Checking out all the goods.

halloween party.

Saturday night we went to a Halloween party at Gharzi & Noelle's.

Our costumes were so sexy.
& pretty flattering.

Pretty sure we would win the best costume contest if there was one. I have never felt so unattractive in my life. ha. That was also the most uncomfortable costume ever. That dress was choking me. 

My brother Anton could not stop staring and laughing at me.
So rude. haha
Everyone was calling me Fiti Jeffs.
The food was yummy.
I hate salad, but I actually ate the salad there.
They tricked me into liking mushrooms.

{everyone in their costumes. my favorite is beeg in his white trash costume}







We had fun at the party.
I pretty much just sat at the table and tried every dessert.
They were delicious fyi.
The funniest part of the night was listening to Gharzi's chinese accent. According to him all asian yell in a high pitched voice and say mother effer after everything. Pretty funny. 


hello fall.

Fall you are finally here!
Me and my pregnant behind have been waiting for you.
Now I know its been fall for a while but the leaves & the weather just started changing so I'm saying fall has just arrived.
I love everything about fall.
The cooler temp.
Halloween & Thanksgiving.
Boots  & cardigan weather.
& going outside with out dying from the heat.
Since it's getting closer to Halloween we decided it was time to take Indie to a pumpkin patch.
We went with our friends Laila & Peter & little Ava.
It was cute seeing them playing with the pumpkins.
I took so many cute pictures of Indie it's ridiculous.
She loves to smile. 




Indie & Ava
picking pumpkins.









So weird. Indie's new thing is pointing.








There was also a corn maze at the pumpkin patch.
Indie tried to pull the leaves off.
She wanted to walk the whole time, but she was walking slow because of the uneven ground. We ended up carrying her most of the time.
a very pregnant me with my sweet little doll. 

 {Laila.Ava.Indie.Me.}
 {The Talivakaolas}
 The only picture we could take of both of them sitting still.
 We went on a tractor ride too. I liked it cause I was getting sick of standing & walking. :)

This made me excited for Halloween.
I can't wait to put Indie in her costume. 
Fall really is the best time. 
Not too cold and not too hot.
i LOVES it.

family time.{picture overload}

The past couple of weeks have been so busy for us. I feel like we're never home. We got to spend so much time with our families during the last like 3 weeks! We first had Indie's party, then my nephew and niece had parties the next week. Then we went down to Las Vegas for Jessie and Missy's wedding and stopped in St. George for a day. And then the next week we has Lincoln's blessing. And on top of all of that we've had football games every friday.
BUSY BUSY BUSY.

So we decided to stay in St. George for a bit to visit family before we left Indie to go to my cousins wedding in Vegas. It was so hot. I seriously melted. Indie got to spend the weekend with Dan's family.We never get to see them cause we live in slc. She is such a people person so it makes life easy for us.We can leave her with anyone and she'll just make herself at home. Indie followed her cousin Zaya around everywhere she went.
Zaya told Dan, " your baby is driving me crazy!"

{cricket & indie}




While Indie was being spoiled in St. George we were staying up all night in Vegas.
We had fun hanging out with family.
I got to spend some girl time with my other half Sally.
We of course went shopping.
That's kind of what we do best.

The wedding was so beautiful.
The food awesome and the band was even better.
We had so much fun that night.
During the ceremony Zion{jay and missy's son} decided he was bored so he ran out of the gazebo and played in the grass.
It was so cute.



After being away from Indie for 2 days I had to wait another day to see her because I got sick in Vegas. I stayed in Vegas an extra day, got better than picked up Indie to go back home. My parents brought us back home and they stayed in slc for the rest of the week. I loved having my parents in town. They always make sure we're well fed. Plus Indie loves my dad. He had to hold her while he cooked dinner cause she would follow him everywhere and reach out to him. So my parents were up here all week and then my brother and his family came from HAWAII!! Dan never got the chance to meet my brother and his family. He met my little nephew Tony but only for like an hour. I was way excited for Dan and Indie to meet Tony and Tara and all their kids. Since my brother Tony made it all the way from hawaii all my brothers and sisters were together for the first time in like years.
ALL 14
{tony, francis, lynnette, anton, cordelia, jane, sina, segi, janet, maila, me, tenny, daniel, & tai}

Only some of us took individual family pictures.
Anton's family was in Vegas & Segi's was too busy to take one.

So that was pretty much the last couple of weeks. 
It was crazy & busy but it was so fun hanging out with everyone.
We got to see all of our brothers & sisters in just 2 weeks!
We are so lucky t0 have such great families.
