A Preschool Halloween

Joshua finally had his long-awaited Halloween party at preschool today. It kept getting rescheduled because of snow. Families were invited, and Olivia thought it was "awesome" that she could go to his school for a day. They decorated cookies, painted pictures and played games ... In the end, Joshua declared it "the best party ever!" Happy Halloween!

Trick or Treat!!

We had a great Halloween this year! Joshua wanted to be a Star Wars Jedi, and begged for Livi to be Princess Leia (or "Princess Layer" as they call her). My mom helped me create the smallest Princess Leia costume you ever saw, and the kids were a hit. =) After being snowed into our house for 3 days, we were a little concerned that trick-or-treating would be out this year. Fortunately, the day was beautiful and a lot of the snow melted. We bundled up and went to Jason's sister's house so the cousins could be together. The girls rode in style in a double stroller, while the boys ran from house to house telling jokes to the people who answered their door. We laughed all night, and ate A TON of candy ...gotta love Halloween!

Winter came early this year to Colorado. The kids have already played in the snow several times, and they are loving every minute of it. Joshua informed me he NEEDS to learn how to make a really good snowball, and Livi is content just touching everything she sees that is covered in white. I love my kids ...I love seeing the world through their eyes. =)

Having Fun

Joshua and Olivia have a new love ... Grandma's horse. It's the same horse I rode as a little girl, and now they can't get enough of it. Joshua pretends he's a knight, and Livi rocks the horse back and forth so fast she's going to get whiplash. Yee Haw!

Sister Time

My sister, Jesica, came into town a few days before my brother returned home so we could have some quality "sister time" ... AKA shopping (There's something about being with your sisters that makes shopping more fun). We also went to lunch and watched lots of TLC. It was a blast. We miss you Sis!

Welcome Home Elder Dalby!

My brother, Ryan, returned from his mission in Panama this week. Jesica came into town so all the sibs could be together for the first time in almost 3 years. We had so much fun picking him up at the airport, going to dinner, and staying up until morning talking and playing Settlers of Catan (OK, that game is addicting!) The cousins had a blast playing together. Joshua and Livi already miss "Baby Kenna." Joshua was especially excited to see his uncle Ryan. He has prayed for him every day these past 2 years, and has already decided Ryan is his new best buddy. Welcome home Ryan! We love you!!
