Disney On Ice

This year for Lily's birthday I got tickets for Lily, Eric, Ash and I to go see Disney on Ice. It was a first for all of us. Ash being the fun gal that she is said we all needed to dress up so we did! (The guy in the parking garage even commented on us going all out for it) While we were walking to our seats Lily told Ash that she felt like a real princess.
Ash, Lily and I had matching princess shirts and crowns. Eric was our knight in shining armour.
It was so much fun! I often feel sorry for my kids that we don't have the money to do a lot of fun stuff or go to fun places- which often makes me feel like a bad Mom. So watching Eric and Lily's faces during the performance made me feel like a million bucks! Lily was on the edge of her seat the whole time with a look of pure joy and awe on her face. Eric kept saying "that was amazing!" I know that material things aren't important in the grand scheme of things but it sure was great to be able to give my kids a fun night out. It did my heart good.
Disney On Ice we shall be seeing you again!

Sassy Pants Birthday

To me it seems crazy that Lily is only 5...she has always seemed so much older. She had a friend over to decorate sugar cookies and play. Lily's choice for dinner was "panda noodles" aka top raman. We had Grammy and Aunt Ash over for cake and ice cream. Lily got some awesome presents. One being a pair of rainboots that she wore to bed.
Some days she drives me crazy but I would be lost without my little helper. She is such a wonderful big sister to Evie and Kobi. Lily is a great kid and I'm lucky she was sent to me.
Love ya Little Miss Sassy Pants!

Salt Lake Temple

Sometimes I just have to get out of the house. I was feeling that way the other day, so the kids (minus Eric who was in school) and I headed to Temple Square.
Adorable I know
I think Lily would've stood there all day if I let her


October was a fun month- but for some reason it takes me forever to get the pictures out of my camera onto the computer. And what's a blog post without pictures...So I'm just going to picture this post up. Cornbelly's Corn Maze
Eric was the leader
Lily kicked Ashley's butt on the slide
Eric beat Skip and Evie
For Halloween we had a Thor
A Spooky Witch
A grumpy Little Red Riding Hood
And one cute baby! The houses where we live are a little spread out and the kids were the ones that called it quits- Skip and I were all for hitting up more houses but the kids begged us to take them home.
