Halloween 2010

When I was working on CR's costume I stuffed it with a pillow to make it easier to sew and I left it like this over night cause it looked fun.

We went to our Trunk or Treat Party in our ward.  Minus the trunks because it was pouring rain outside when we were supposed to do it so the trick or treating got moved inside.

CR as a mummy.

G as a Cat Witch.

J as a witch.

S as a cookie.

S as a Karate Kid.

T as a lion.

We celebrated T's (cousin) birthday on the official Halloween night.  He's 2! What a fun kid.

Halloween Parties

CR had an Egyptian Halloween Party.  I was helping with the musical chairs and so this was the only picture I got.  CR is a mummy.

Here is our Precious Cat Witch.
The rest of the pictures are pictures from her Preschool Party and Parade.

Today S also had her cheeleading team pictures.  As part of the photo shoot they do individual pictures and take care of their make up and hair.  S looked so pretty with her curly hair and I just had to throw this picture in.

Pumpkin Carving

This is our traditional FHE for the monday before Halloween.

Here's everyone at work.  I'm the photographer (of course).

These are the final results from youngest to oldest...
G works really hard by being cute.

Daddy helps (more like does what she asks for) her make Tigger.
G liked her tigger pumpkin but when she saw mine she said she wanted that one to be her's instead (typical 3 year old) so we had to take a picture of both.

What else do you expect from an 11 year old boy?

S has always loved Hello Kitty. 


She wasn't too happy with her pumpkin she says she messed up witht he mouth but I think she's a great artist.

C with a great big smile.  She didn't even use a pattern.

This is the extent of my ability and love of carving pumpkins.

KC with his pumkin after helping everyone else.

The final results.

I don't know what this is?? Something crazy S came up with and does with G.  She lifts her up and says Elmo...Elmo...  I don't know but it just proves that my kids are pretty wacko!

And I cound't just take a picture of S and G.  C and CR had to get in the picture also.  More proof!

Primary Program

October 24, 2010

This primary program was bittersweet for me.  It was G first time but CR's last.
G loves her big brother.  He is her closest sibling after all.  I'm glad she has got him to look up to because he is a great example to her.

G didn't want to stay up there at first but with a little help from her teacher she was just fine.  I love to watch these little ones because they are so proud to be up in front of everyone and love to show off the songs that they have learned.  

"I can follow Jesus by being revernt." This was her speaking part.

CR had the concluding remarks for the entire program.  He gave thanks to the teachers, parents, and leaders for all their help and for teaching them correct principles.  He worked hard that morning memorizing his part and did a great job.  He was a little upset with himself because he forgot a couple of the words and had to look down at his paper.  That's a normal occurance when you have something memorized and you are nervous because there are 500 people watching.  He's such a perfectionist.  I think he did amazing!

Because it's Ladies Night...

September 25, 2010

My favorite and only sister is always finding fun bonding activities for us and this one was no exception.  (First of all every time you read the title you must sing the song "Because it's Ladies Night...and the feeling's right...oh what a night!" by Kool and the Gang.)

We drove down to this fun pampering night together and got to eat dinner, get our hair and nails done, do some shopping, make and eat some truffles, and many more fun activities.  But most of all we had a fun time together.  I love my little sister!

Just in case you can't tell... the short smily one is my cute sister.

And just in case you can't tell... I was flirting with the guards but I got nothing back so I'll stick with KC! I get a much better response from him!  

Eagle Court of Honor

September 17, 2010

This is a family that we have known for a very long time and we are good friends.  Their 2nd oldest son earned the rank of Eagle Scout and we were priviliged to be able to attend. 

CR got to help with the lighting ceremony and he felt so important.  Steven is a great example for CR.

This is a picture of Steven and some of the men from our previous ward.  C and Crystal (Steven's Sister) budged into the picture.  What great memories.
