Lindsay's Baptism

Lindsay turned 8 this year. She decided to wait a couple of weeks to be baptized so that she could be baptized with her best friend Brianna. It was a special day for them and it was neat for them to share that day with each other. It was great having my sister here to share in the special day! Thanks for coming Jeanette. It meant a lot to Lindsay to have you there. It was a wonderful evening. It was neat to share the night with our friends the Blakemore's.

Tree Farm

It is a tradition each year to go to the local tree farm and cut down our own tree for our foyer. We love going and searching for the perfect tree. This year it was pretty warm when we went. It didn't seem right. Nobody was complaining that they couldn't feel their feet any more and that their hands were frozen. Oh well, there is always next year!! The kids loved running free amongst the trees and we did find the perfect tree!! Jason's family all came too. The kids had fun with their cousins.

Ali's Party

I let Alisha have a small party this year. She invited the girls from her church class. The girls all get along really well and had so much fun. They ate pizza, did Karoke and watched the new Tinkerbell Movie. We got a cake from DQ this year. It was sooo good!! I made Tinkerbell sugar cookies for all the girls and they had popcorn and candy during the movie. We definately filled them up on junk food!!

Lindsay with friends

Lindsay and her friends played dress up. They put on Ali and Lindsay's dance recital costumes. They had so much fun!

Halloween 2009

So this year we split up. The two older girls went together trick -or-treating with their friends Jana and Makayla Bowman. They had a great time. The three younger ones and Jason and I went out to Stone Meadows to his sister's house. All the Grant cousins (minus my older two) were there. They all had a lot fun collecting candy. Stacy did not want to give up, when we said we were going back to the house, she said "more Tick-or-Teating." It was so cute! She LOVED it. I had Jason carry her to a couple more houses and then we went back to the Mitchell's house and popped popcorn and watched a movie together. Alisha and Lindsay got to come for half of the movie. They got tons of candy, I couldn't believe it. Alisha is donating most of hers to the troops. The craziest part of the night was a haunted house that we went through in some one's driveway. It was amazing, only really scary for little kids. I thought my kids would freak out, but strangely enough none of them shed a tear. Tyler even went through twice!! I think the full size candy bar at the end was a great incentive! We had a lot of fun and are glad we spent the night with family.
Stacy asks everyday if we can go trick-or-treating. The girl loves candy!!

A visit from LOLA

Lola is a dog that we bought a year ago. We had her for a little over a month and we had to sell her. Emily would not set foot on the ground when Lola was running around in the house. We had to keep Lola in the Laundry room a lot when Emily was home from school. It was crazy. She is basically terrified of dogs after being "attacked" by one of her friend's dog. Jason also seemed to be allergic to little Lola. So, we decided it was the best for our family for us to sell Lola. We found her a really good home, A home with 2 other dogs. Lola LOVES other dogs. She is the smallest of the three, but we hear that she rules the house! She is adorable and we all miss her, except Emliy of course. I did manage to get Emily downstairs and make her pet Lola before Joanna took her back home. We loved having Lola for a visit.
