Chamberlain Halloween Party

We held our Annual Chamberlain Family Halloween Party early this year due to Hadlie coming. Every year we all dress up, make a trunk or treat, carve pumpkins and bring spooky treats.
Macie and Paden wanted to be Superman and Supergirl this year...can you believe it? I didn't even have to coax them into matching...but I am so glad they did because they looked Super cute!
Ben decided the only way to make a "fat lady" dress up was make her look like an overweight construction worker...when we went to the DI to get "fat" pants we found Ben and Army dude costume...the sad part was, when I got home and tried the pants on (thinking they would be huge on me) they actually sad.
Look at that profile, if that doesn't say I am ready to pop, I don't know what does!

Here is a group picture of all of us crazy Chamberlains...can you imagine driving by on this afternoon and seeing all of these goons out in front of this house?

Macie ready to save the city from some bad guy!

Paden can't believe how big his guppies have are! He is one tough dude!

Macie's Princess Party

Mom decided to make things really easy this year and hire a princess to come and do Macie's party. Being nine months pregnant, I knew I wouldn't have a lot of energy to put forth a great party so I decided to hire it out! What a great decision!
Macie had the perfect Princess Party! She dressed up as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She calls herself the pretend Belle and says that the "real" Belle came to visit her on her special day!

Belle played all kinds of fun games with the Princes and Princesses. She played pass the wand and kiss the frog! She also made a fun Sandy Candy Wand with the guests!

She also helped Macie open her presents, reminding Macie a few times that princesses are always gracious and say thank you!

After presents she helped the birthday guests sing Happy Birthday to Macie and blow out the princess cupcakes!

What a fun day! I think Mom enjoyed this party just as much as Macie!

My Ode To My Milkman!

I had the neatest thing happen to me this morning! I got a call from Winder Farms. A man on the phone told me his name was Mark and that he hoped it was ok, but one of his collegues happened upon my blog and read about my horrible day (from my previous post). He said that Winder Farms wanted to credit my account for all of the milk I had lost. He said everyone has had a day like that and Winder Farms could sympathize. He said that when they read my post they felt so bad that they wanted to make it better. He said that they really appreciated my business and wanted to let me know it! He also wished me good luck with my baby that was on the way and he hoped all would go well!

How cool is that. I was beside myself that such a great company was out there that cared about each individual customer and wanted to make my life easier! I have to say that I feel that I really owe Winder Farms a great plug...if you haven't had their milk, it truly is yummy. Paden looks forward to his weekly Choco (chocolate milk) and when we are out, asks when the milk man is going to visit him again. I also have tried many of their other products such as their eggs, fruit, and their new meal solutions. I have been pleased with every product I have tried and I highly suggest their strawberry lemonade it is soooo good! I love how convenient it is to have it delivered to my house. I can't believe how much I save on groceries because I don't go to the store for milk and come back with a $100 grocery bill and lots of stuff I didn't really need.

If the food and convenience wasn't enough, I truly believe that my phone call this morning is the best reason of all. Who would have thought that little old me would be so valuable to them that they would want to make my rainy day have a little sunshine in it! Thank you Winder Farms for your great service and commitment to the customer! You have definitely retained my business for good! Here is their website if any of you are interested in getting this great service!

When it Rains, It Pours!!

I thought that this is a very appropriate phrase for today. Not only because it has been pouring all day, but also because of my day's events...

On my way home from Park City my windshield wiper broke...not just stopped working, but flung out of control and was vertical from my window. I had to drive from Salt Lake City to Kaysville without being able to completely see out my window (due to all the rain).

When we got home, I decided to go get something out in the garage. When I got out there, I noticed that something was leaking from our fridge outside. Just as I had feared, the fridge and freezer are not running. The stuff dripping out was thawed ice cream, popsicles, and many other frozen things...Luckily I had moved many of my freezer dinners to my indoor freezer just days before...but I still lost lots of stuff, and we are cooking a couple of meals that could not be re-frozen. Don't worry though, Ben's Coke was just fine, we are very fortunate that coke can be warm and then be re-chilled!

Then to top it off, about half way through the whole broken fridge ordeal, I realized that I had never gotten our Winder Dairy milk out of the milk box yesterday. It was a pretty warm day yesterday and I had to chuck 2 1/2 gallons of milk...

I tell you, when it rains, it pours!
