Oct. 2014

 We had a Ward Fall Party. We had wagon rides and little train rides- I even gave the little train ride a try! Then we had a chili cookoff- with some awesome tasting chili.

 My brother and his family came up to celebrate my Dad's 60th birthday, so we went out to eat and then went to this awesome straw maze. The kids loved sliding down these huge tubes.
Zak and Hallee waiting- my Dad and I got split up from the group, becauce there was a section the kids wanted to go through, that got narrower and narrower. My Dad is claustraphobic and I didn't want to squeeze the baby in my tummy. Well my Dad and I never could find the ending so we took one of the emergency exits and found everyone waiting for us!

Of course at Halloween time we have to carve pumpkins! We had such a mess of pumpkin guts, the girls had to take a bath.

 Some friends of ours always do a Halloween Party, this year they had it at the skating rink, Hallee had been skating before and did pretty good. But Blyss and Sisaly really struggled. I saw Blyss fall I don't know how many times, but she got right back up and no tears. Same with Sisaly, but she got help from friends and Zak and I walking and holding on to her so she wouldn'tt fall.

Hallee- a Pirate

This year I went and helped at Hallee's Halloween party and school. I love going in and meeting the kids that she always talks about- it is good to put a name to the face. Sisaly also loved hanging out at the party. She can't wait to go to school.

Halloween Day!
Sisaly was a peacock for Halloween- I love her poses!

Sept. 2014

The girls started school in Sept. Blyss is in 2nd grade- her teacher is Mrs. Bidwell. Hallee is now in 4th grade and she has 3 teachers that she switches between. They both  really like school and are doing so well.

What pretty girls!!!

Hallee and her friend Kennidy participated in the talent show at the State Fair.

They took 2nd place in their age category! Way to go.
Hallee and Blyss also started back with clogging this year. Hallee has really taken off and has gotten very good, she really likes it too.
Hallee started piano as well. I don't have to remind her to practice, she does it all on her own and doing really well with it.

Sisaly started preschool at a preschool here in our subdivision, so she goes to school wih all her friends and loves it.

Hallee had her 10th birthday- I can't believe she is growing up so much! She is almost as tall as me. She is a good helper, has started babysitiing her sisters, and does a few chores around the house. She does love  her down time and sweets! She does so well in school, she is excellent at math. She has made lots of new friends and enjoys school.

We found out that we will be having another little girl join our family. We were really hoping for a boy- but we are pretty good at the girl thing- so we are happy no matter what! Everything looks great with her. I finally started feeling bettter at 20 weeks- finally no more naseau and throwing up!

This is Blyss when I told her she was going to have a sister. She was so disappointed, she was for sure it was a boy- she just knew it, so it was a really hard thing for her to except. She cried for 1 1/2 hours, followed me around and kept telling me how picked on she was and how another sister was going to ruin her life- it was quiet comical, but after so long enough was enough. She finally has come to terms with it and is so excited for a cute little sister!

Ms. Sisaly keeps me on my toes, she doesn't like to watch tv, so she is very busy and lots of messes. She does love her kitty- Princess- which keeps her entertained some.

Befor Sisaly can go to sleep she has to set up beds for her stuffed animals, so I always get a kick out of what she has done when I go check on her. She is very loving to her stuffed animals!
