4 Months and Halloween!

Autumn has been sqwaking and talking a ton lately. Here is a video that pretty much shows a day in the life of Autumn.... minus the hungry and sleepy cries.

This year for Halloween Sierra was a Monster High Girl (aka scary teenager). Maddie was Rapunzel. Autumn was a spider and I was a spider web, and Jake was a lumber jack. Fun Times!

Lunch At The Park

This years school schedule is a little bit hectic. Sierra has been going to kindergarten half day, afternoon, 5 days a week. Maddie goes to pre-school, half day, mornings, Mondays and Wednesdays. On the two days that Maddie has school, we need to squeeze in some lunch inbetween the time that Maddie gets out from school and when Sierras school begins. This time is about 45 minutes.
Well, considering it takes about 20-25 minutes one way to/from the schools, there is not enough time to pick up Maddie, go home, eat lunch, then take Sierra to school. So the girls and I have been picnic-ing twice a week. :) This has actually been fun! We eat lunch real quick, then play until it is time to take Sierra to school. The time frame that we have is actually the perfect amount of time to get in a little play time (not too much
where I am bored to death), and I have a good reason to get them to leave right when I tell them (no lolly gagging :)). Well, as luck would have it, Sierra is starting full day kindergarten on Monday.. right when the weather has been too cold to picnic (we ate lunch in the car this week, then the girls still went out and played). Today was our last picnic at the park. It has been fun and not something I tend to do a lot in the summer, so I was really glad that the last two months provided me lots of picnic time with my girls.
I am very grateful for the bus as well! It comes right to our house and Sierra LOVES riding the bus. She waves good-bye to all of her bus friends every day. She comes home everyday with some gum that the girls give her on the bus. I'm looking forward to next year when Sierra will get to show Maddie how fun it is to ride the bus!

Happy Birthday Sierra!

Sierra turned 6! I think she felt pretty special on her special day! Here are some pics from her day!

Maddie anxiously waiting to help decorate the cake!

The cake! She wanted a scary cake, so we decided on a girly scary cake!

She really wanted to grill for her Birthday! Gotta love that girl!

3 Months

Autumn is now three months old! I can't believe it! Where has the time gone? I feel like she has grown so much! She loves to be where all of the action is and does not like to be left alone. She is a little smiley girl and starting to laugh! We just can't imagine our family without her!

Nevada 2011

Over Labor Day weekend we went to the Elko County fair. We did this last year and are trying to do it every year! It is so much fun to spend time with Jake's family! This year we even got to meet three of our nephews that we had never met! As always, the races were fun and the company was great! We love this vacation and really look forward to it! Here are some random photos of the time we spent there!

2 Months

I cant believe Autumn is two moths old already! Time sure is flying by! She smiles intentionally now, and just started reaching and grabbing for things dangling above her! We love this little girl and can't imagine our lives without her!

School and Hair

Sierra started Kindergarten today!! She has been so excited to go to school! She is very excited to go to school 5 days, then have two days off.. same days as her dad!!! (Wonder how long the excitement will last.)

Sierra also got a new hair cut! She LOVES it! She was bouncing off the walls after her hair cut was done. I love the new look! Just so you know, Sierra thinks she is a model. She purposely posed for this photo. Hand in her pocket and all. She especially loves to bend her leg. She has been posing with her leg bent for a while now. Maybe she pays too much attention to the ads in the magazines. It's cute though.
