The Joys of Life

So I am going with some friends to see New Moon this Saturday night and I have been looking forward to it all week! But, I can't help but wonder , is it kind of pathetic that a 30 year old mom gets so excited about seeing a teenage vampire movie? Oh well, I guess no matter what age you are forbidden love is still alluring and taking a little time to do something fun for yourself is a good thing!


Jeff & Kaley Browning

Mike's sister was married yesterday and it was such a beautiful, fun, busy day for us! The kids are such show-offs and were always posing for the photographer. They had a blast dancing at the reception. Ethan did the worm and Hyrum was break dancing. Julia danced with everyone and mimicked their moves! It was a beautiful reception and we are so happy for Kaley and Jeff.


Piano Recital

Ethan had his first piano recital on Sunday afternoon. He played a duet and 2 songs with a quartet. He did such a good job! We are so proud of what he has accomplished in only 6 months of lessons. Grandma,Grandpa,GGMa and GGPa all made it to the recital to hear him play. We had a nice dinner at our home afterwards. It was a really good day!

Trick or Treat

Julia is absolutely in love with Tinkerbell right now and so naturally she dressed up as her for Halloween. She won the award for Prettiest Costume at our church carnival. She was such a little trooper going around our neighborhood trick or treating. She ran the whole time trying to keep up with the boys.
Ethan was a Star wars clone trooper. He went to a friends Halloween party on Friday night. They did karaoke and played games. He felt very grown up to stay out until 9:30.

This is Hyrum the Vampire at his school party. I went in to help and had a lot of fun helping with the crafts and games.

I love these Mr. Potato head pieces for the pumpkins. It is such an easy way to decorate without a mess.

My 3 little pumpkins all ready for church. I realized that I had dressed them all in the same color and thought it would make a cute picture!
