October's Dance Opservation

Kaylie is taking her first dance class. She attends one day a week for an hour. In that hour she learns ballet and tap. In October and once more in December family members are invited to visit the class and she what they have been learning. Unfortunately my camera was acting funny so my pictures turned out really bad, so there are a lot of videos instead. Kaylie is the one with pumpkins in her hair .

Here they are all curled up pretending to be bears all curled up and sleeping I think????



Bowing.



She is right in the middle.

Her teacher Miss Lori is using animals to tech different moves. This video is of a swan swimming gracefully.

This video is of the swan flapping its wings and stretching its neck.

I am taking this video from the reflection in the mirror. Kaylie is right next to the lady in gray on the right. This is them practicing their ballet arms.

Things I love this month

I can not believe how time flies. I know time went fast for Daniel and Kaylie but I don't think it ever went this fast. Peter is now 7 1/2 months old. He loves everyone and will always give them a smile but he kicks and wiggles and starts to laugh when ever his mom enters the room. He loves to eat and thinks he should be able to eat anything we are eating. He also loves to drink from my water glass. He has learned how to pick up cheerios and puffs with his finger, but is not a 100% yet at getting them in his mouth every time. He has also recently learned how to wave hello, so cute!!!! I am expecting him to crawl any time now.

I love for anyone to stack the blocks up so I can knock them down.



Dad and I recently taking a Sunday nap together.



Daniel has food and Peter has spotted it. Look at that stare. Can you say I want some.


Cute picture of Peter while looking at Daniels sandwich.


video
Daniel and Peter have a special way to communicate with each other. I loved watching them so much that I forgot to grab the camera till the very end.




video
I came home last week from YW's to have Daniel run out of his room to tell me that Peter had learned something new all on his own. I thought it might have been how to crawl; but no, he had a much bigger plan. He figured out how to pull himself up to a standing position in his crib. This is a video of him doing just that the next morning.



video
How I get around but not liking it at all. Peter has no problem being on his stomach but when he has had enough he starts to push himself backwards and get mad. AKA the funny video above.

Halloween 2011

We had so much fun this year!!! I know I have the cutest kids in the whole wide world. Daniel was Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kaylie was Fawn the Animal Fairy from the Tinker-Bell Movies and Peter was a Sugar Snap Pea in a Pod. I was so afraid we would be trecking through snow this year but thankfully the storm missed us and the snow we did get melted in two days.
My adorable threesome.


Fawn our Fairy.


Our defender of truth Obi-Wan.



Our little Pea playing with a pint size pumpkin.



Peter was smiling at something Daniel was doing while I was taking pictures.


I love this look, it says "I am going to get you soon, so watch out"



Here Peter is trying to figure out the whole crawling thing. He is so close.


Jeff came home early so we could go out as a family for a little bit. Here is Peter in his costume.



After we got back I had Daniel run out side and turn his light saber on so I could take a picture of him. Go my Gedi!!!!

Decorating Pumpkins

So about a week later we decorated the pumpkins for FHE. Daniel wanted to carve his pumpkin and Kaylie wanted to paint. Peter's just stayed little and cute.
Daniel drawing his face on his pumpkin before it is cut out.

Scooping out the seeds.


Sticky, slimy fun!!!!!!


Me and Peter taking the pictures.

Finished lite pumpkin.


After we were all done with our pumpkin activity and singing our closing songs Peter figured out he could lean over Jeff's legs and pull Daniels hair and make him laugh and yell. These two were having sooooooo much fun together.

Playing Cars Together

Peter loves to be on all the action. Here he is wanting to play cars with his brother and sister.


Daniel playing with Peter.

I think I can, I think I can, lets just hope mom doesn't catch me with one of these cars.

Pumpkin Patch

This year we didn't know if we would be able to go to the Pumpkin Patch this year. It was flooded after hurricane Irene came through. Only one pumpkin survived, however they were able to buy pumpkins whole sale and we were able to enjoy their wonderful apple cider donuts, a tractor ride through the desolate pumpkin fields and a few other attractions that survived the flood before the kids picked out their pumpkins.

Kaylie enjoying an apple cider donut. YUM!!!!!!


Me and my girl!!!



Me and two of my wonderful kids!!!



Jeff and Peter. Jeff was enjoying a bowl of chili and Peter was using the table like a drum.


Smile!!!!!


Anybody ready for a ride??


I don't know if I like this???



Okay, I like it now can I pick it up???



How tall are we??



Jeff and his three kids on a beautiful day!!!!!

Kaylie's 4th Birthday!

How time does fly. Kaylie turned 4 this fall and wanted a princess themed party.We had it Saturday morning before the Conference sessions started. All the little girls came as their favorite princess and Mason and Daniel the lone boys dressed up as knights. I only have pictures of Kaylie, Daniel and Mason for right now until I know if it is okay to post the pictures with the other little girls all dressed up and looking so cute!!! As well as loving to look like a princess Kaylie also loves to sing and dance around our house. She also loves Tinkerbell and playing with her babies. She also loves to do anything crafty. She is such a sweet girl. Happy Birthday Kaylie!!
This is Kaylie in her fairy costume that Grandma Nanette made her. Kaylie loves Tinkerbell so she got a barbie sized doll of Tinker bell from Grandma Nanette and Grandpa Terry. Don't I have a talented mom, I could never sew something like this. Thanks mom!


Here is a picture of her Princess castle cake that I made her almost finished. It only took me about 8 hours to make. :):)


The knights sword fighting.

After all the kids went home Kaylie got to finish opening her presents from her grandparents. Here she is opening her presents from Grandma Brenda and Grandpa John.

Kaylie can't wait to wear her new church dress that she got. It is sooooooooo beautiful. Thank you Grandma Brenda and Grandpa John!!
