Thanksgiving 2009

We celebrated at my mom's house this year. My grandfather and his new wife, me and Bryan and the girls, Amber, and Mom and Jerry were all there. Mom did all of the cooking and everything was great :)

Halloween 2009

What a day! Halloween day that is . . . I had to go in to work to help my mom fix up her house and then came home to get the girls and dogs ready to go trick-or-treating:
Zoe was a water fairy and Tobi was "Jessie" from Toy Story

Brownie used Jas's bumble bee costume (that Jas hates wearing) and of course Belle was the queen. I got Jas a t-shirt to wear instead of a costume. Unfortunately we couldn't keep Brownie in her collar so we ended up having to leave the pup-pups at home.

I told Bryan that Zac wanted to trick-or-treat (and I was right) so we put Zac in Bryan's old army jacket :) They all had a great time.
Then we all came back to our block and our neighbors had a party for us!

First Day of School

Here are the girls on the first day of their new school:

They started at Olympia Elementary. Bryan and I had a lot of trepidation about this new school but so far we are impressed! The school keeps getting exemplary awards!
