This year Eric's parents were in Utah and Ryan and Alyssa were in Texas for thanksgiving so it was just us and Kye left. We invited our good friends the Atkinsons over and I did my first thanksgiving! It was actually really fun. Krystal and I split up the menu and everything turned out great!

i was so mad because this centerpiece that i made wouldn't fit on the table with all the plates and stuff! Oh well, it still looked cute on the food table. ;)

sierra and victoria were so cute. they loved their little table and were so funny together the whole time.

Early Birthday Celebration

My birthday's not until next Sunday, but Eric's parents are going out of town tomorrow to be there for when Ashley has her baby girl for a month so they won't be here for my real birthday. My sister in law, Alyssa's bday is the day before mine so we usually celebrate together. We had a little cel e bration last Sunday!

1st Haircut

Sierra's hair has been getting pretty straggly lately. I've been putting off getting it cut, but it finally had to be done.

She did great, we took her to Planet Kids and everyone was so nice there. She got to watch Dora while she was in the chair and didn't get upset at all!

Here is a really good example of a before:

She looks way too grown up now and I miss her long hair, but I suppose it had to be done. She was starting to look like a bit of a raggamuffin.

The little kitty

Sierra was a kitty this year for halloween, she dressed up a total of 4 times and was probably so sick of that costume by saturday night!

Thursday morning we went to a little halloween party

Victoria, Nora, Sierra, Abrams, Jake and Josh

Thursday night we took Sierra to a photoshoot in her costume, I can't wait to see how the pictures turned out!

Friday night was our ward trunk or treat. Sierra loved going to all the cars, getting candy and saying trick or treat! she thinks her candy bag is a trick or treat and asks where her trick or treat is daily now. lol

Saturday night we had a family party. The food was delicious! We didn't do as much as last year, this year just seemed more hectic for some reason, but it was still fun! We had wisconsin cauliflour soup with panera bread's french baguette, ghostie potato skins, chocolate witch cupcakes with cream cheese icing, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, ginger snaps, old bay seasoned pumkin seeds and mimi's yummy punch!

I can't wait until next year when we can actually take Sierra out, door to door trick or treating, I know she'll love it! Happy Halloween!
