Happy 10 months Ellie!!!

Our sweet baby Ellie is 10 months old today! She is getting so big and I have loved every minute with this precious girl. She still only has one tooth but she has more that our trying to break through (nice for nursing). She can wave, stand for a second before collapsing, crawls, climbs and loves to eat food!! She is really so much fun to be around and is constantly watching all of us and absorbing our actions. Here is my attempt at getting a picture of her:)

The girls singing "Magic" too cute!

Wizards of Waverly Place Party!

Well awhile ago my friend turned me onto this site called where you sign up to be a host for certain types of parties and if you are chosen they will send you party packs free. We were chosen to do the Wizards of Waverly Place movie premiere party (a show on disney channel) they sent us a themed party pack which included a c.d. , poster, leis, gifts for each guest, and fun games. Since the movie took place in the Carribean the party was themed around that, the girls came over for dinner, games and of course the movie.

August Birthdays

We had a big family party for all the birthdays in August (Ron, Aunt Patty, and Eliza). Grandma Donna made the cutest caterpillar cake the kids loved it! We also said goodbye to Eliza as she headed back to BYU for the fall semester:(

A new home for Tot Lot!!!!

I have been involved in a co-op preschool (Tot Lot) with all of my kids and have enjoyed being a part of their preschool. After a long wait we finally got our new building at the park which will be Tot Lot's new home! Here are before and after pictures.
