'TisThe Season...

Faith did a really great job dancing in her Christmas Dance concert {sigh} I just love living through my children;)

Faith lost her first tooth

we are thrilled (well I am) Jaylee started dance this week. To my surprise she did really good for a 2yr old;) My favorite part of the class was when she decided to take her cloths off! Yep! (remember my earlier post... Jaylee hates cloths) She must have worn her poor little self out because afterwards she fell asleep in the cart at the store

Faith singing O Christmas Tree at her kindergarten Christmas concert

fun at family Christmas parties

of course the kids had to visit Santa at Bass Pro Shops. DUH...Ronnie's favorite store in the whole world:)

catching up...


I had to share this picture. Ronnie sent this to my phone from his phone. This is how he kisses us goodnight when he is away hunting:)

Hard to believe my hubby is 30yrs old! Our nephew shares the same bday with Ronnie so we celebrated the night at Bounce U and had a great time. After Bounce U a bunch of us headed over to Oregano's so Ronnie could get his free birthday pizzookie! YUMO!

This year Faith had a part in the primary program. She did really good! After she was done speaking her part she walked straight down from the podium and back to the chapel to sit with us. After some convincing she finally went back up to join the rest of the primary and finish out the program.

Faith tried to make Jaylee look like a "clown" by drawing on her with a pen. Poor Jaylee had been running a fever that day too but apparently she didn't mind, however mom did:<

I was so happy to find both of the girls passed out at the same time all on their own! I actually got to watch a tad of TV that night!

Lately I have been finding my girls sound asleep. Jaylee has become quiet attached to her baby dolls these days.

Halloween & the month of Oct


We started the night off with our traditional pumpkin bread bowls with soup. This year I tried out a new recipe (the cake shaped like a pumpkin) and it was pretty yummy. Then it was off to Trick or Treat.




our poor pumpkin the day after Halloween:)

Will You Listen?

I am ashamed to admit that this will be the first election that I have been registered to vote. I am by no means a political guru, but I just couldn't sit by and do nothing. I am astonished at how we have evolved into a country on the brink of self destruction. I believe that even if this country does elect the wrong president, our battle doesn't have to end there! I think it is time for all of us (including myself) to stand up for what we believe!

Jaylee's 2yr old photosession

sorry there are so many pictures...wait, no I'm not;) I am a sucker when it comes to pictures of my kids and for a serious pose too:) Nothing wrong with going to the mall for pics but this was the first time I was able to take my kiddos pictures for their birthday and I had a BLAST!

Oh, and I thought I was a color type of girl but I think I might be liking B&W
