Also back in October Scarlet turned 3!  We had a fun little princess party in the park, with old & new friends!  This little girl is growing up too fast.  We love you Scarlet!!
The set up...fit for our princess. 
Sydney & Scarlet having some lunch.
Time for pin the heart on the necklace.
Birthday girl first!
Right there!

I missed!

Leila's turn.
Now for brother's turn.  No peeking!

Guess he wasn't!
Pinata time!
Funny little story.  Sydney pulled the right string & she was only the second or third one to try.  So I just let the kids get the candy instead of giving everyone a turn.  They were mad!  Oops!

Time for cake, or in our case mini pink & purple cupcakes with glitter!

Ready for us to sing to her.
Make a wish baby girl!

Present time!

Thanks Sydney!
Her first helmet.
Carter, birthday girl, Kenna, & Lydia at the end of a great party!  Thanks to everyone who came & celebrated our little princess!


let's go back

Way back, like October, and play catch up!  I am so behind on here & just want to get current!  The next few pictures are from Carter's school fall festival. The school gave away some really amazing baskets full of toys, gift cards, money, legos, etc. but we didn't win anything.  It was a cold night for October & we weren't really prepared, but we had fun!
Shooting hoops
 Scarlet's turn

Ready, set, 

You can't really tell by her face but she loved it!
Bean bag toss.  Man I miss her long hair!
These were also a hit. Very cool, I've never seen anything like them.


summertime fun

Here are just some pictures from the fun we had over summer.  Funny to be looking at these when it's 30 something degrees out right now!
Scarlet & Griffin riding in the basket at Yaya & Papa's.

 Fun Uncle Courtney!
 Cozy at the drive in.
 It isn't summer without Rita's!
 Enjoying the new jetted tub...
and the new pool!  It's small but did the job, the kids loved it!
 All set!
 A trip to Krispy Kreme's.
 I love donuts!
 Eating some thrifty ice cream to stay cool.

new house

Back on July 20th we moved!!  I can't believe I forgot to blog about this, it was a very exciting time!  We were so done with our condo & so happy to move to a bigger house in a better area!  We looked all over Vegas & so glad we picked here!  So far it's been great & we have awesome neighbors! We are just renting but hope to be here for awhile! Here are just a few pics of the place, sorry for the date on some, I took them from the web. 
 Kitchen (hope to get rid of the red!)

 Upstairs looking at kids rooms & a small loft to the right.

first day of school

Since Christmas is almost here I better catch up on this blog!  I'm way behind so let's go back to the first day of 2nd grade.  Carter started a new a school with new friends.  So glad this new school has kids from church! Here is just a collage to remember that day...of course little sis had to be in one!  This little boy is growing up too fast!



Back in August, yes I'm way behind as usual, Mr Carter turned 7!  Last year we had a big party so we kept it small this year.  We just had a few friends come play games at Chuck e Cheese.  I think you can tell from the pictures below that we had fun!  We love you so much baby boy!!
This handsome boy is 7!
