Finally I have a piano!!

Thank you Richard and Genevieve for giving us your piano. I am so happy! I have wanted one for years and knew we couldn't afford a new one, and I was so excited when I heard you wanted to get rid of yours. I am taking lessons again and my goal is to be able to play for church. I think the best calling would be Primary Pianist. Now I just have to brush up and learn to play well enough. As we al know they never turn down someone willing to play piano. I also want to tell Marcus, Mike, Richard and Justin thank you so much for moving the piano last Friday. I know it wasn't easy, but it made me so happy! Who would of thought!
(don't mind the candy corn they are tags for my kids teacher's gift for Halloween)

Scarlett's Birthday Party

Scarlett has changed her mind probably 100 times from her last birthday till this birthday as to what she wants to do for her party. I have learned the hard way not to buy in advance as I just loose money and can't convince her to switch to my idea. So when she said she wanted to do Build A Bear I jumped at the oppurtunity and booked it asap so she couldn't change her mind. Luckily she is always asking me to take her to Build A Bear Workshop so I knew I should be safe.

I love that Jake is such an oppurtunist. No wonder Marcus favors him! (This was before my neices arrived from Simi Valley)

Scarlett picked the Halloween bear and I can't remember what she named him, I am sure she has forgotten as well. (She does that and changes the names here and there)
I want you to notice the outfit she chose for him. I said he looked like a Christmas Halloween Cat a little confused. I tried to get her to put him in a costume, but no way!
This is the autograph bear all he friends did at the party Yes she chose It's the Best Day Ever for her cake. She wanted it on all her cakes she had for her parties. It is from Sponge Bob it is a song he sings. I also would like to point out that she is wearing one of her dog shirts that is long sleeves and it was probably in the 100's that day. She is a character. I wasn't going to fight her on her party!

Scarlett's Family Birthday

On Sunday the 7th we had my family over for Scarlett's 6th birthday. She wanted to have sour cream, tomatoes, salad, (lettuce), cheese, chips, and quacamole for those that like quacamole. If you didn't like quacamole then that was ok you didn't have to eat it. Those were her exact words so we had tacos. I figured some of us might want meat and beans with all the rest of that stuff. She loved every minute of it and all the attention she received.
Of course we did something on her actual birthday at the park with her friends and that is when we gave her her presents. ( I forgot my camera after running around all day so Laura took the pictures I need to get them from her)

This is from Amy Grandma and Grandpa. She loves it!
Great Grandma gave her a family of pigs that she can only look at. She loves them and wants to play with them very badly.
The little girl next to Scarlett is Morgan a friend from my Mom's ward. They are the exact same age (days apart) so my Mom thought it would be fun to bring her for Scarlett's birthday. She gave Scarlett the beanie baby she is holding and already had them named for Scarlett. They are two of a kind.
She wanted a white cake with white frosting dyed pink. I talked her into the Barbie candies (she doesn't even like Barbie) cause I told her she could get two packs since they were on clearance!
Happy Birthday Scarlett! I can't believe my baby is 6 I am feeling so old!!

First Day of School Finally!!

Finally my kids started school! Yeah we were all excited and a little nervouse to get going to our new grades. I have to say I really enjoyed my Day without my children around. Marcus and I went to breakfast at Ruby's right after we dropped the kids off at school. Then Laura came over with her two youngest boys and we baked a cake for the kids and went to lunch. By the time we were done with lunch we rushed home frosted the cake and had to leave to get the Big Kids. It went fast I will tell you that!
