Hello guys,

We are headed to Bakersfield. We will be there on the 26th for sure. Is anyone up to a visit to the mountains, so the kids can play in the snow? Can't wait to see everyone.

My babies turned 10 and 8








Brooke turned 10 on November 23rd and Brielle turned 8 on December 3rd.

Brooke has a big party with my Mom and jill

Brielle was baptized, so troy's parents, and scott and marlana came up, so we had a huge party for Brielle

These girls are so sweet. It has been so much fun being a Mom. I just can't believe how fast times goes by. I hope it slows down now. I am not ready for the teen years.

Fall Festival

Today we decided to head out to the new Park at River Walk and enjoy the festival activities. There were lots of craft booths, food, and some games for the kids.
















Tessa had her face painted,










They both played at the bubble station,













And I had to bribe them for this "sisterly" shot at the end of our day :)










Despite it still feeling like it was 90 degrees outside, we had fun!

Super Bee-havior!



Well, miss Tessa has earned Super Bee four times now!! This is an award from her kindergarten teacher for good behavior in class... being kind, caring, or helpful. I am soooo proud of our Super-Girl!
