Fall Update...

Well, this time of year is always busy for our family, so here it goes!! In October, Troy and I were able (thanks to the group effort of my family and neighbors) to take advantage of a Tax conference in Austin and take off for a few days. We celebrated our belated birthdays and anniversary…eight years...boy am I glad the years are beginning to catch up with kids—barely! We had a wonderful stay at our favorite B&B in Fredricksburg-http://www.chuckwagoninn.com/, we stayed in The Bollinger Cabin (I highly recommend it in case you ever need a get-away!!) And then to Austin for a few days. I got to spend a whole day relaxing in hotel room by myself- it was wonderful! Then back to real life of crazy schedules…Addie turned 7 years old October 23rd! I know, she’s so big- how did I get a seven year old?





She opted not to have a birthday bash and instead wanted to take her cousins to see High School Musical 3. I jumped on the idea to skip all the planning and took 18 people to see the movie. It was a cute little (FULL length) musical, but I must admit I was a bit shocked at how the cast had “matured” in the last few years. They were so innocent in the beginning, and dressed a bit too sexy this time around!












So during the movie, Addie pulled out her front tooth, and of course had to show it to all of us. I don’t know what it is about the mouth, but the hanging threads of a tooth really gross me out.


Anyways, then there’s Halloween and the debate of what are the girls going to be…I’ve enjoyed the years of the “themed” costumes, but that has come to an end (due to my lack of creativity). So, this year I talked them out of the cheerleader thing, because we could use that one next year and easily add the boy to the mix. And they talked me out of the three blind mice thing with Gracie being a piece of cheese, and we settled on pink fairies. Not too exciting I know, but we thought we’d do one more big she-bang of all pink…pink clothes, pink tights, pink tutu’s, pink hair spray, pink wings…before we throw in the blue!




They were very cute and had a blast. Someone please take all the candy out of my house. I’ve hid it high from the girls, but how do you hide it from my prego rear end? It’s time to just throw it away! Anyways, now we move onto to Gracie turning two, the Holidays and all the work we have to do before Feb. Anybody got any cute ideas for the baby’s room? We are debating making the trip up to visit Troy’s family in Utah for Christmas, but we’ll see- I’m sure that trip would make for one very entertaining blog!!

Oh My Gosh, Christi and Troy, you have got to be kidding me. It has been so long since those great days at BYU. I can't believe you are going to have 5 kids, well I can because I know how you 2 are, but wow. How the heck are you guys. I have been looking for you forever and then I decide to join facebook, find Clarissa, and then BAM she sends me your blog. It's me sex mix, don't even begin to tell me that you don't remember me because I know that you do. I love you guys and am so so so glad that I found you so that I can keep in touch with your cute little family. Adorable girls by the way. Can't wait to hear from you.

I was laughing about the tooth coming out in the movie. Well, at least you know she wasn't THAT into the movie! Love all the pink!

Crazy that you have a seven year old and weirder still that my annie and Addie share the exact same birthday only a year apart! I hope that one of these years my girls will just want to take friends to a movie or something for birthdays. That couldn't be any better for you! I loved the Christmas card of the pink fairies...adorable! I bet you guys are getting so excited for this little boy to come! Good luck
