School Carnival/Gardner Village

Last Wednesday we got to go to Logan's Halloween Carnival for preschool. They did it early since he is off track for the next 3 weeks. Logan had so much fun. They had lots of activities for the kids to do.

Here is Logan playing Spider Ring Toss.

Brooklyn in her cute ladybug costume. We still have adjustments to make before Halloween.

Logan decorating his pumpkin cookie.

Playing the Ghost Bowling game. This was his favorite game of the day.

Making his monster hands.
Later that day we went to Gardner Village with Ashley and Paisley to see the witches. Paisley and Logan are so cute together. She can get a little rambunctious and Logan takes it upon himself to make sure she stays with us. They had so much fun.

The sun was in their eyes.

Cute kids. We didn't even plan for them both to be wearing orange.
My cute kiddos. Brooklyn was content in the stroller pretty much the whole time.
If you find all of the witches on the scavenger hunt you got a discount on a cookie and the Naborhood Bakery. Both kids loved their cookies! Thanks for planning a fun day Ash!

9 Months

I cannot believe this little lady is 9 months old. She is getting to be such a fun age. Some things about Brooklyn at 9 months:

Weight: 15 lbs. 10 oz---11%
Height: 26 inches---4%

-She is a great little crawler. She has been getting herself around for about a month, but really started crawling great in the last two weeks.
-Crawled up the stairs for the first time on Oct. 9
-Waves bye-bye.
-Signs "more"
-Signs "all done"
-Loves to walk around with someone holding her hands.
-Loves going to BYU football games.
-Loves baby cheese puffs.
-Loves juice.
-Can shake her head no but moves her whole body when she tries to nod yes.
-Tries really hard to say Mama and Dada.
-She is really really picky about what baby food she will eat. Its pretty much sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, and carrots if its mixed with a fruit. The rest she spits out. Especially peas.
-Picky about baby food, but loves to eat pretty much anything else we give her, like crackers, cookies, yogurt, cereal.
-Loves watching Special Agent Oso and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

She is such a funny little girl. She is hopefully getting more over the "being away from Mom" fear, which is so great for me. We sure love her and can't wait for the months ahead and all of the new things she will be learning.

Family Pictures 2011

This last Saturday we went up the canyon to get our family pictures taken. It did NOT turn out how I had hoped and planned for weeks! Brooklyn would barely smile, Logan was just being goofy, and David was super yawny ( I know not a word). My sister did manage to get a few good shots though.

At least we got a little smile out of her. She is teething and there is this one tooth that just will not come in. It has not been fun for any of us.

He was such a little goof the whole time. Smiling weird, standing w
eird, but I guess thats what you get with an active 3 year old.

Best family shot. At least Brooklyn is looking at the camera.
This little lady loves to be walked around with someone holding her hands. She was so happy this whole time!
I sure do love this kid!

This is my very favorite picture of all of them! Love these kids so much.
Thank you so much for taking our pictures Hil! They really did turn out good considering the conditions!
