For Halloween we decided to dress up as the gang from Monsters Inc. I made the costume that Ruby wore it took me awhile but she looked so stinkin cute it was totally worth it!!!  James was Sulley, I was Roz, Dorothy and Violet were monsters, Preston was Mike and Ruby was Boo!

Pumpkin Carving!

I love carving pumpkins and some years we try and coordinate our costumes and pumpkins for fun, but this year we did all Frozen pumpkins!!!  Ruby fell asleep after a huge meltdown before I could get a picture!

Fall Festivities!

I love Fall and the beautiful season it is.  We enjoyed a drive up Loafer canyon and took some pictures in the leaves!  We then came home and I put my little kids in Halloween jammies!!!

Med Sea Cruise!

The Mickelsen family took an amazing vacation to the Mediterranean.  We arrived in Rome and then cruised for 9 days.  We stopped in Italy, Greece and Turkey.  It was an amazing adventure that none of us wanted to end!!!

Idina Menzel!

James bought tickets to Idina Menzel for Dorothy, Violet and I as a surprise!  He gave us the tickets and took us out to dinner!  The concert was phenomenal she was better in person than on CD!  She was so personable and I loved every second of it!  She sang for 2 1/2 hours and at the end of course sang "Let it go"!  She had all the little girls come up and sing with her the second time!  Violet was able to go up and was about 4 people away from her!  It was a wonderful night!


For school the kids had to dress up like minions.  Ruby decided that she wanted to involved so I whipped up another outfit for her!
