Hailey's Baptism

We had a wonderful time this past weekend as Hailey made the decision to be baptized. We had a lot of family travel here for the event which was so nice of all of them! It is hard for me to believe that she is 8 already!
Family shot except where is Lily? Asleep in her carseat but of course she did not get the memo to sleep for an hour and decided to wake up and be hungry after the talk on baptism. Thanks to my friend Kristi who took her and kept her happy until after Hailey was confirmed.Beautiful girlDaddy's girlMommy's girl - Yes she will probably be taller than me in a couple of years!If there was ever any doubt about how much Hailey is loved! Thank you to all family and friends for their love and support.Mike's birthday was on Sunday so with the help of my beautiful sister we made him this beauty.

The last day of a crazy October

Halloween was a crazy day at our house! It started off with beautiful 10 mile run that I have been wanting to run since we moved here. It was great to be out before the sun was up and be able to watch the sun rise. I am always glad when Haloween actually arrives because that means that I have made it through Sept. and Oct. The start of school, meetings, 3 birthdays, soccer 5 out of 7 days a week, piano, tap, and a newborn are enough to push anyone to the brink of craziness. So what crazy woman schedules family pics on halloween in between Haileys last soccer game and trick or treating. Oh that crazy woman was me! I will post pics of the photo shoot soon! Let me just say that planning outfits for family pictures is such a pain in the rear! I am glad that it is over and that we actually got some really cute pictures thanks to Mari and her amazing skills!
So Halloween started a week early this year with the ward party and trunk or treating. It took about a week for the kids (with some help) to blow through their candy so of course we needed round 2.
This year we had a candy corn, Commander Fox, Anakin Skywalker, and a cute little fairy
Noah using the force3 of the 4 kids Lily decided that it was time to sleep when trick or treating time rolled around, I have not pictures of Lily in her costume because of thisA dang cute candy corn
Jackson will protect us all from the evil Lord Vader

It has not slowed down much but I am always so happy when November comes!

All Girls are princesses

For Hailey's b-day she got to invite a few friends to go to the play " A Little Princess" at the local highschool. They were offering a tea party beforehand which turned out to be really cute. They had cute little plates of food and the cast made a appearance. The girls felt extra special which is the whole point of the play.
