Happy Thanksgiving

So Much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, we got to spend a week in St. George with family. We packed up the house and left on Saturday morning.
Matt got to do some golfing, the girls and I did some swimming, played some tennis, went to Zions and went 4 wheeling a couple of times.
Here is our sweet little nephew Cole and BookerBee coloring.

On one of the days we visited Zions National Park, which was a first time for Matt and I. On our way to Zions we stopped and had lunch at a little cafe in Springville.
Zions was beautiful, we hiked Riverside Walk which is about 2 miles round trip. Nat, Brandon, Mike and Drew in Zions National Park.
Rob, Matt,Cole and BookerBee.Dave, Sue, Becky and Madison Zions was alot of fun, the girls loved the 1.1 mile drive thru the mountain.On our first day of 4 wheeling we did about 60 miles. We had 3 rhino's and three 4 wheelers. Here is Justice and Cole before we headed out.
This is at the very beginning of our first day, by the end of the day everyone was covered in dirt. We did manage to get lost, so when we did finally make it back to the truck I think that everyone was pretty happy.Our second day of 4 wheeling we went to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The sand was definitely a high light for the girls. I think that they must have played in the sand for a couple of hours. They had so much sand everywhere!! Here they are sliding head first down one of the sand drifts. Here is Rob, Mike, Brandon and Drew.What a great Thanksgiving!

Hooray For Georgie!

I can not believe that Georgia can tie her shoes. It only took her about 15 minutes and she was doing it all by herself. You are such a smart little girl, always making us proud!!

Family Bowling

This was the first time that Matt and I have taken the whole family bowling. Brooklyn missed the first game entirely because she fell asleep on the way, but was up and bowling by the second game.
Here's Madison getting ready to throw a strike. The older girls all used a 6 pound ball and were able to carry it over to the lane. When the girls "rolled the ball" there was always a loud thud to follow. Here is Georgie trying to beat her sisters.

We had a fun time, and will definitely be taking the girls again.

Disney Princess On Ice

The girls love all the Disney Princesses, and were so excited to go. Each princess came out and acted out their story. When the intermission began Georgia and Madison were crushed, thinking it was over, because they thought Cinderella did not come. As it turns out the whole second half was Cinderella, so that made their day. The show was alot of fun, and the girls were all so good. Cant wait to take the girls to Disney Land and see all the princesses.

Parent/Teacher Conference

Matt and I got to experience our first parent teacher conference. This one was called a walking report card. When we got there, Justice showed us how she can group things together, create patterns, and count & spell her name using capital letters and lower case. Her teacher says that she is a bit of a social butterfly, but other than that she is doing great. Mrs. Hatch told us Justice is a really good at writing in her journal and likes to write about dogs and cats. :) We are so proud of you Justice!!!

Happy Birthday King

Kings birthday was actually on Halloween, but we decided to celebrate the day after. The girls made mini cupcakes for King. Justice even decided to put a skirt on King for the birthday party. King couldn't wait to taste the cupcakes, Justice had to give him one before we even sang to him.
King has a big old smile on his face. He can't wait for another cupcake.
