The Jensen family finally had enough money for a washer and dryer! Not having to go to the laundromat anymore was deserving of a picture.
The girls are attracted to that sandbox like nothing else, rain or shine. Luckily today is a nice day.
Lexie is throwing a Spooky Day Party for adults tonight and has been busy baking all morning in preparation. Yummy!
With Fall quickly coming to an end, the family decided to go get their picture taken at the festival to have pictures of their young family when they are old and gray.
This was the baby girls' first trip to the festival! There wasn't really much for them to do there though and they got cranky quickly.
This is the hilarious picture on the side of the photo booth. LOL!
I generally like the picture but Minnie looks abnormally large because she's sitting so close to the camera.
Kyle saw his brother Stefen at the festival. He and his family are doing well. They had another baby, this time a girl named Amelia, but he left her at home with mom so they didn't get to meet her yet.
They had to rush home because the Spooky Day party was starting. That is Jenny on the right with the alien mask. That's a horrible costume with only a mask...
This hot dog dude asked Lexie to dance and she agreed because he was old and she didn't want to be rude. But he had poor boundaries and she quickly became uncomfortable.
Fortunately Kyle saw them dancing and rescued her by cutting in. She told him that she suspects she might be pregnant, which was unplanned (I replaced woohoo with risky). Kyle seems thrilled about it but she was a bit upset. She was looking forward to her children aging up, giving her some more free time.
Suddenly everyone realized it was Sandra's and Christina's birthday, so we all pretended like the party was for them.
Big sissy Jenny took it upon herself to help out, which I thought was adorable.
Happy sparkle dances...
This is Sandra, who gained the Eccentric trait to add to her Easily Impressed, Artistic and traits. We seem to have gained an inventor in the family.
This is Christina who gained the Excitable trait to add to her Absent Minded and Genius traits. The excitable trait is nice for mood buffs but the absent minded thing drives me crazy because she often drops her entire queue of stuff to do.
Apparently the party was pretty dull compared to their toddler birthday party. Even Lexie was yawning - at her own party!
Kyle tried to spice things up a bit by performing. He's fairly famous now but not yet at the top.
But it didn't really work and most of the guests left early. It's so hard to tell what will make a party good or bad. Does anyone know what contributes to it besides the guests' moods and having fun things for them to do?
