Halloween Costume Party

Justice's pre-school class had a Halloween costume party. The parents got to come see them walk in a parade and then sing some scary Halloween songs. The twins, Brook and I all went to watch Justice but for some reason Justice got really shy and would not stand with her friends. She told her teacher that she did not know all these people ( all the other parents ). Justice never ceases to surprise me. Justice of all people is not shy in the least bit.

Justice Can Tie Her Shoes

So this is one of those mile-stones that I am very happy to have reached as a parent. Matt and Justice worked on it all night Sunday and she even took her shoe to bed with her to practice. Justice was really eager to learn and she was tying her shoes like a pro in no time.

Pumpkin Fun

The girls and I went to get pumpkins earlier this week. Justice picked out he biggest pumpkin at 29 pounds. Justice picked out a happy face while Madison and Georgia wanted scary faces.
Georgia was not crazy about getting her hands all yucky but Justice, Madison and BookerBeee didn't seem to mind.

Jungle Jim's Playland

This weekend we took the girls to Jungle Jim's. Definitely something different:) They had a carousal, swings, rocket ships and a roller coaster ( that Matt & I fit on )The roller coaster was pretty fast... I thought for sure that someone was going to be scared but every single face had a smile from ear to ear. Brooklyn was big enough that she able ride on all the rides. Justice was such a good big sister and sat with her:)

Roasting Marshmallows

On Friday our friend Josh Jacobs came in to town from the great state of Georgia. Matt and Josh became good friend while serving in the USAF together. We had a fire and roasted some marshmallows together. It was really great to see Josh again and to catch up.

Matt's New Project

So anyone who knows Matt understands that he loves to work in the garage. He has been talking about installing a turbo on his Raptor for the longest time. This last month before Matt came home boxes were coming in the mail. Boxes that I did not give a second thought to, I would just put them in the garage. Well finally the last box arrived. The Turbo. So the project begins....

Riding Solo

So Justice is a big girl for sure, she no longer has training wheels on her bike. She has asked me a couple of times to take them off .. But I told her that she needed to wait until her Daddy came home. So now that Matt is back from Iraq the training wheels have come off. So at first, dad had to run beside her but before long she was off and pedaling. Then the next obstacle was getting started. But with lots of help from Justice's friends; Josh, Justin and Jeron she has mastered the skill.

I can't believe how much snow fell... I don't think that in the whole 9 years that Matt and I have lived in Utah it has snowed this much in October. When the girls saw all the snow, they could not wait to get out there and play. I was alittle skeptical whether or not the twins would actually play in the snow. ( Last year they would stand in the garage while Justice played ) Brooklyn loved the snow too... At first she keep on pulling her gloves off but then I think that she realized that they would keep her hands warm:)

Of course Matt could not pass up a chance to get the snowmobile out and give the girls a ride around the yard!!

Here is just a cute picture of Matt and the girls, Its been great having him home :)

Black Island Farms

Justice's pre-school class went on a field trip to Black Island Farms and the whole family was invited to come along. We had a couple of minutes before the tractor ride began to slide on the big slides.
The trackor took us all out the the pumpkin patch where the girls all picked out a pumpkin to bring home.

Welcome Home

The day finally came !!! For the last 5 months we have been counting down the days until Matt would come home. I got a phone call on Thursday night letting me know that he would be coming in on Sunday @ 12:40 in the afternoon. So the girls and I were counting down the few remaining days left. On Saturday night I got a phone call from one of the Master Sgt's in QA, to let me know that Matt was actually going to be in much earlier... 8:30am . So in all the excitement we got up to base at 8 am just in case the flight was early... If was awesome ... I can even explain how wonderful it is the have Matt home again, we have missed him so much!
