We put up our tree right after Thanksgiving like we always do and the kids had a blast. Each year they each pick out a new ornament to add to our tree and it's fun to see the previous ones that they all picked. Our goal is to give them all of their ornaments when they get married or move out so they can decorate their own tree with them.

The kids had a great time trick-or-treating last night. We left at 6pm and didn't get back until 8:30pm. Logan did request a pick up at 8 though, so Jeremy came and got him and took him home while we stayed out with our friends. It's hard to tell what they are with coats on, but Mallory is a Butterfly Fairy. Logan is "The Master" from Star Wars (we're pretty sure he means the emperor). Lyndie is Supergirl.

Thanks to a few guys from our ward, we were able to move our trampoline to our new house today. It was quite a spectacle as you can see, but we love having a tramp, so it's worth it to us. Hopefully they will arrive there with it in one piece.

I have done Weight Watchers off and on now for about 4 years. For some reason my weight eventually creeps back up everytime! I officially started counting my points again yesterday and started going walking a little. I will keep my progress updated as it goes. I might even post a before picture once I have actually lost weight and don't feel so insecure :).

So, I woke up this morning to realize that Lyndie had somehow found a pen last night in her bed and drew all over her body. And I do mean ALL over!
I thought it was just on her face arms and legs, but she was sitting with her nightgown up so I could see her belly button. It then dawned on me that I hadn't checked her WHOLE body. This child cracks me up. She was so happy with herself for doing this. When I asked her what she did, she told me with a big smile that she colored to make her pretty.

I totally neglected to add an entry for Lyndie's 3rd brthday. We celebrated at a family party and then had cake at home with the family. Her big present was a new stroller for her dolls. WE got her a sturdy one since her and the kids think they fit in the doll strollers.

Mallory actually started last week, but I forgot to take pictures. This is Mallory in 2nd grade and Logan starting Kindergarten.
Is it just me or do girls get more dramatic as they get older?
We go to Mallory's bus stop every morning with her. It's right across the street from our house.

So today I decided that I was going to take the kids down to the Gateway and have lunch and run through the fountains and then come home.

So, for those of you that are not sure why you got an invite to be a reader on my blog, it's because I am going private now. My friend, Kelli, called me last night after looking at the traffic on her blog. She noticed that someone from Spain had downloaded pictures of her little girl and they had come to her site from mine. She also noticed that they had downloaded pictures from my site too of my kids.

So, this morning I went to an awards assembly for Mallory at her school. There are basically 3 levels of awards they try to earn during the year. We didn't really try, so Mallory got a certificate of participation along with all the other kids who didn't really earn it. The kids who earned one of the awards got a medal.

I have to write about something that happened to me at Wal-Mart on Saturday. I was at the cash register paying for my groceries. The checker told me my total and I got out my debit card and swiped it like normal. I then looked at the number pad to enter my pin and there was a huge furry spider on it!
This last weekend we went on our ward campout. This was in the morning when all the men were trying to cook breakfast in the rain. It turned out pretty good considering...
I was one of the few that came prepared for rain and I was not about to give up my umbrella.
Logan really enjoyed poking the fire with his stick. He would sit it in the fire until it caught on fire, then he would take it out and blow it out. I don't know how safe that was, but we came home with no injuries.
Mallory was finding little sticks to throw into the fire.
That's Lyndie in there mooching chocolate off of one of the moms.
Logan was so tired. And this was right after we got there! He was a trooper though. He didn't complain about it, he just laid down when he could.
This is Mallory with one of her little friends, Grace. She was glad that some of her friends came up so she could hang out with them.
Lyndie still mooching food off of other people. They willing give it to her. Those big blue eyes and soft blond curls get her a lot. We are in big trouble with her.

Mallory had her 1st grade program last week. They sang and each had a speaking part that they had to memorize.
This is Mallory's friend Averi on the left and her twin brother Noah in the middle.
This is Mallory waiting to say her line.
Mallory loves to be behind a microphone as you can tell by the way she holds it. She did a great job and had her line totally memorized :
"Our rotations were filled with lots of excitement. We loved computers, library, PE, and music. Going to each one every week with a different teacher was a great adventure."
We got Mallory some flowers for doing such a great job at her program.

This is Logan with his favorite friend at preschool, Michael. Logan said, "Mom, I will miss Michael the most." What's even sadder, is that they won't go to the same elementary school next year.
Lyndie was there, of course, and she thought she was part of the preschool class, too.
This is Logan playing with the girls tassle next to him. Such a teaser, that boy!
This is Logan's teacher, Mrs. Lisa. She won't be teaching anymore because she is pregnant and due in August with her 4th child.
During the program the kids all gave their Mom's a rose.
Doing the pledge.
