We have had a fun Halloween this year. We have had lots of opportunities to show off our Halloween costumes. We went to a carnival at Mirabelli, we went Trick or Treating at the middle school, the girls had parties at school, and we had our ward Trunk or Treat. It has been quite the week. A big thanks to Grandma Joy for the fantastic costumes.

Lucy had her 2nd birthday this month. She is quite the crack up and she keeps us smiling. She had a fun birthday celebration week. She has done some very big girl things since turning 2. She is now sleeping in a big girl bed. She gave up the binkie. She is experimenting with sitting in a big girl seat at the table. She has her first dance class on Tuesday (I will post pictures) We sure love her and her big girl ways.

I realize that this post is out of order and should have come before the start of first grade, but that is how the cookie crumbles. The morning of Leah's kindergarten graduation was somewhat crazy. The battery in our van was dead, and Brian was at scout camp, so my good buddy came and picked us up. Leah made it just in time to join her class walking in. The program was cute and the singing was fantastic. Leah was lucky enough to have two best friends in her class. She had a good time in kindergarten and is ready for 1st grade.
Telling the audience that she wants to be vetrinarian when she grows up Leah and her teacher, Mrs. AukampLeah and her buddies Lizzy and PeytonYeah, she made it!

Here are some links from her graduation for your viewing pleasure
Annie took hula lessons and she had a performance in June. My friend is the one who teaches the lessons and she does a great job! Annie enjoyed learning hula and is looking forward to more lessons.
It's been awhile since I have posted, but I figure it is time to repent. We had a busy summer and I might get around to putting some of that stuff up, but for now I will go with the school year that just started. Brian started the year at Durango High School and he is very impressed with the school and those whom he is working with. Leah started first grade at Gilbert magnet school. She is riding the bus and will get t0 partake in some fun learning experiences. Annie is going to Ms. Heather's and she is excited to be going with her good buddy Trey. Our schedules are a bit chaotic, but we are making it work so far. Here's to a good school year!

Leah and Annie performed at the Touch-a-Truck event today. We had never been to this event, but it was quite fun. There were 80 different types of trucks/vehicles that you could climb on and explore the inside. You could honk the horns, which was somewhat out of control, but the girls enjoyed exploring some cool trucks.
We were invited by some friends to visit the Conservatory at the Bellagio. I have heard fabulous things about the displays, but we had never ventured over before. It was amazing and I'm so glad we have discovered this little gem. It was decorated for spring and was a combination of Alice and Wonderland, Bugs Life, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. I can't wait to go back. p.s. my girls were matching 2 days in a row. i think that is my quota for the month.
