Girlies Dance Recital

Kaili is the second in on the right.

Sasha is the last on the right.

The girls just had their Christmas Recital. Kaili chose to do Hip hop and did a great job. Her body has so much muscle for her age she could really hold her stalls well. Sasha wanted to be more traditional and do Jazz. It was definitely her style, she twirled all across the floor beautifully. I'm so proud of them and they looked so happy and beautiful.

Steelers vs. Broncos Game

Before the game started (my face still pretty swollen from my
wisdom teeth surgery a week before, UGGH!)

Us and Macey and Jason

WE WON!!!!!

So I'm a little late putting this on but, the Swine flu decided to enter our home and we've been down and sick for a couple weeks. Jason and I went with our friends, Macey and Jason, to Denver for the Steelers game. I didn't know I'd like it so much but it was a blast. We stayed in an amazing hotel right next to 16th street. (outside HUGE walking mall and restaurants) It was an exciting game and the Steelers won. The stadium only had Steeler fans when there was still 8 minutes left. (real supportive "Broncos" fans) Haha! I would definitely go to an NFL game in the future. Fun! Fun!

My Little Girls 9!

Kaili turned 9. I can't believe it! She had a Halloween birthday a couple days before her real birthday. She had all her good friends there. We played games, made candy apples, and spooky spiders. Kaili made her own birthday cake, a ghost. On her real birthday we had a family funeral (Jasons Grandpa passed away). We spent the day with his family. It was a beautiful service, just how he would have liked it. Then we decided to invite family for a fun night at Boondocks. She had so much fun playing laser tag, arcade games, and go karts. Thanks to everyone who came and made her night!
Kaili girl,
I can't believe how fast time has gone. You are growing up to be such a sweet young lady. Daddy and I are so proud of you and how hard you work. You are doing so well in school and are such a big help at home. Your little sister looks up to you so much and we know why. You definitely know what you want in life and we have no doubt you will work your hardest to make sure you succeed for what that is. I hope your day was special for you. We love you more and more everyday!

Me and my little cuties! (Sasha would not keep her eyes open)

So, this took me a while to post on here but, here's the story......I told the girls their costumes had just come in the mail and they needed to try them on just to make sure they fit. So they did, then their little friend (who was going with us) was trying hers on too and they wanted to show each other. I took some before pics and told them to go out the front door to get in the car that Daddy was already outside waiting in. They went out and saw the Limo and Daddy waiting. They weren't quite sure what to think and what was going on but they ran and got in the Limo anyway. I asked them if they could guess where they were going and Kaili did. We picked up the rest of the gang and went to dinner all while listening to Miley's music the entire time. It was so much fun and a great Girls Night Out! I love seeing them so happy!

First Day of School

So the girls first day of school was on Monday and it was bitter sweet for me. Kaili started 3rd grade and Sasha started 1st. Although it's nice to have some time for myself it's also so weird to not have a little one home in the day to take care of. They were both really excited to start. Kaili was up early and ready to go. Sasha, on the other hand, said "I'm tired and don't want to wake up". She's just not a morning person as I have mentioned before. They had a great first day. They also made these cute cupcake bouquets all by themselves for their new teachers. They're getting so big. I can't believe how time flies!

Sasha's 6th Birthday !!!

Sasha had such a fun birthday. This year she planned the whole thing herself. My mom (Nana) took all her ideas and ran with 'em. It was a Bedtime Stories theme with water games and a pinata. Activities included, making their own bedtime stories, slip 'n slide, water balloon fight, dizzle drizzle drench, cake, and presents. She had so much fun! Thanks Nana! She also had a bed for a cake made by her Nana, it was the cutest cake I've ever seen.
Then on her real birthday Jason got up early and made her a cute breakfast in bed. She wasn't too thrilled though. (she takes after her mama, not a morning person) She said "I'm tired, take it back downstairs and I will come down when I wake up." My sweet lil' grump!
After that we spent the day swimming (Sasha's wishes). Then later we went to ice cream with all the family.
It's hard to believe my baby will be starting 1st grade. We love you so much Sasha Bear and enjoy the sweetness you bring into our family. Happy Birthday cutie pie!

More Lake Powell " That hurt my Butt!"

This is video of Jason jumping off a huge cliff. (according to our calculations it is somewhere between 75 and 90 feet tall) CRAZY!! If you listen you can hear he hits butt first which is not what you want to do. He's still payin for it with a black and blue bruise on his rear. WOW!!!

Kaili is so cute and tough. This one was not quite 20 feet. What a big cliff for my little girl. I can't believe she did it with really no hesitation. She definitely gets that from her dad. She was so cute when she comes out of the water she giggles and is ready for more. Great job Kaili girl!! We Love you!

We had so much fun in Lake Powell. I will try to give a quick overview of all the fun.

Swimming, frog hunting, tubing, water skiing, fishing, hiking, exploring, card games, spoons

cooking, smores, cliff jumping, high wind drama, rain, water slide trains, sun tanning,

cuts, bruises, eardrum popping, sleeping, eating, relaxing and a lot of bonding in all ways.

The girlies had a great time and I'm so glad we could make these fun memories with them.

I am so proud of Sasha. She has learned so much this year. Her math skills are amazing and she is reading incredibly well. She got straight A's this last quarter and her teacher was super impressed with her progress. She also made a lot of friends and isn't so shy anymore. We are so thankful to have her sweet spirit in our lives. Congrats Sasha Bear! We love you so much!
