Halloween Dance

On Monday night was Hallee's Halloween Dance Recital. The girls wore their Halloween costumes. I was so proud of Hallee she did a pretty good job. Most important I'm so glad that she didn't cry. For the past couple of weeks Hallee's dance teacher has had us come in and watch them do their dance each time Hallee has cried, she will be crying with her head down but still doing the dance. It was so much fun, after their dance they played games and we had treats. Sorry there is no sound to the video- all we have is a camera that records.
Last night we decided it was time to carve pumpkins, Blyss and Hallee loved it, Blyss was even eating the insides of the pumpkin- I guess she thought it tasted pretty good. The girls were covered in pumpkin insides. Here is what our pumpkins turned out to look like. I hope everyone has a great Halloween!

I Told You!

Yesterday we took Hallee and Blyss in for Flu Shots. Hallee kept telling us she didn't need a flu shot and that she didn't want one. Hallee was the first to get her shot and was screaming and crying before she even got it. Blyss thought it was no big deal. We leave the room and as we are walking out Hallee turns to Zak and says with fire in her eyes, "I told you I didn't want the flu shot!" And she kept on crying and telling us that her flu shot hurt. Blyss was happy as can be with the sucker they gave her, it didn't even phase her. Hallee had all the nurses laughing with her carrying on.

Today was our primary program and Hallee did an awesome job on her part, she got right up to the microphone and said her part very clear and well! We have been practicing the song, I Am A Child Of God, with her, every night before family prayer we sing it, but now she won't let us sing it, she sings it all by herself. If I try to help her sing it, she will tell me, "I told you I can do it". We sure have been getting a kick out of Hallee and her "I told you ..."
Here are some pictures of us before church-

Few Fun Things

First, this past week my brother Ty and his wife Erica came and visited us. They live in Payette, Idaho, so we don't see them to much, they have a little boy, Cash, and a little girl, Vanna, so it was so fun to see them.

Zak and Hallee went home to Idaho to help Grandpa move cows. I stayed here in Utah so I could go to the JJ Cole warehouse sell in Logan. About a year ago I saw a girl with the coolest diaper bag, it was a JJ Cole Diaper bag, I asked her where she got it, I checked it out, but they were $70.00, that was quit a bit out of my price range. A friend told me about this warehouse sale, so I had to go and get a diaper bag, I got up early with Blyss and went and stood in line, but I got my diaper bag for $25, I got a baby Bundle Me for $17 (originally $50), a Toddler Bundle me for $19 (Originally $60). It is dang nice stuff, and haven't found anything wrong with the stuff.

More shopping- I went to the mall, which I never do, like 3 times a year, and there was a booth straightening people's hair with their straightner, I was curious and gave it a try, since I've been eyeing to get a new one. I ended up buying one after I struck a deal with the girl, it is 100% ceramic plated, the plates are floating plates, it is awesome and I love it! Finally not a straightner that pulls my hair out, my old straightner- 8 years old- on the right, it has combs on each side of the plate which would pull and break my hair.

When Zak and Hallee got home on Saturday we went to a pumpkin patch and picked out a couple of pumpkins. I thought Hallee would love this, but she was having more fun chasing around the water snake that was there.

4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.
5. Leave a comment to let them know.

My 6 quirks:
1. I am obssesive complusive of having a clean house, I like to have everything clean.
2. I do not like things laying around on the floor, I'm constantly picking up after everyone.
3. My girl's hair has to be done everday with a bow in it.
4. I lay out my girl's clothes every night, so when Hallee wakes up she can dress herself, if I don't lay clothes out she picks out her own clothes and she really doesn't care if she matches or not, which drives me crazy.
5. I do not leave the house without any makeup on, unless it is to take Hallee to preschool, where I just drop her off.
6. I have to watch Desperate Housewives every Sunday night. I make dang sure that we are home to watch it.

Fall Fun!

This past weekend we headed to Idaho so Zak could help his family dig spuds. Zak took his Dad's place, since they were up in Northern Idaho for Zak's sister, Paige's, Junior Miss. They got home Sunday night so we got to visit with them for a bit, someone gave Paige a Princess crown, ring, and necklace, Paige gave it to Hallee. Since then Hallee has not taken off her princess attire, on our way home from Idaho we stopped in Pocatello at Artic Cirlce to eat and she was princess of the play land, everyone telling her what a cute princess she is. Once we got home the princess dress is worn all day with the bling.

My brother, Nick, brought over his 5 little puppies to my parents house while we were there, the girls just loved them. They were really good with them, they just held them and petted them. One pup peed on the floor and Hallee was going for the dish rag to clean up, luckily I figured out what she was going to do with the dish rag, before she cleaned it up. Also Hallee and Blyss got to ride around with my Dad in his Skidster(little tractor, I didn't get any pics), they loved it, Hallee even ended up helping my Dad scrape all the manure out of the corralls.

Hallee also started dance this week, she loved it, she wouldn't let me get a good picutre of her though.
